J. J. Lamb

NO PAT HANDS, the fourth book in the Zach Rolfe PI series, was a nominee for a 2014 Shamus Award from Private Eye Writers of America (PWA).
This is quite a jump from having intended to be an aeronautical engineer/pilot. Somewhere in between I was seduced by journalism while putting myself through school as a news photographer. An AP career followed, but was interrupted by the U.S. Army, where I was given a Top Secret clearance, put in a locked room with a safe, table, chair, and typewriter ... and enough spare time to write short stories.
This all led to the paperback PI series featuring Zachariah Tobias Rolfe III (Zach to friends, Toby to special friends, usually female), who specializes in gambling crimes ... on either side of the tables.
Next up came collaboration with wife Bette Golden Lamb to produce -- so far -- six gritty medical thrillers starring feisty, ex-Bronxite RN Gina Mazzio -- BONE DRY, SIN & BONE, BONE PIT, BONE OF CONTENTION, BONE DUST, BONE CRACK, BONE SLICE and BONE POINT. Bette and I have also co-authored THE KILLING VOTE, a political/medical thriller; HEIR TODAY..., a suspense-adventure with romantic overtones, plus a non-series medical thriller, SISTERS IN SILENCE.
NO PAT HANDS takes Rolfe to Northern California and mysterious and deadly doings involved in an attempt to build a new Indian casino/resort.
