“The impressive first in a historical series, which effortlessly
alternates between Washington, D.C., in 1862 and the same city 95 years
later...this debut shows definite promise.” —Publishers Weekly
“Very nicely done....Recommended.” —Library Journal
“An involving, period-perfect story. The action is fast-paced and convincing...the characters are expertly drawn.” —ForeWord
David R. Horwitz was born in Washington, D.C., the son of a D.C. police officer and a piano teacher. Raised in suburban Maryland, David read voraciously, wrote short stories, and biked into the city whenever he could. He studied journalism and Russian in college, wrote for the school paper, and earned a degree in information systems. In 2000, he and his wife moved to rural Minnesota, where he programmed computers by day and wrote on nights and weekends. David's dream of writing full-time ended when he died in 2004. He left behind his wife of ten years, parents, siblings, and the manuscripts that would become the Ben Carey mystery series. Murder Bay was his first book.
