James W. Hall

James W. Hall is the author of 20 novels, 14 of which feature Thorn, the off-the-grid loner who lives a primitive existence in Key Largo, Florida. Thorn and his friend Sugarman, an African-American PI, team up to solve exotic crimes from animal smuggling to piracy to kidnapping to espionage.

When They Come For You, (September 2017) is the first novel in a new series with protagonist Harper McDaniel. After her journalist husband and infant son are brutally executed in a fire in their Florida home, photographer Harper McDaniel has nothing left to live for--except settling the score.

Aided by her former mafioso grandfather and well-connected financier brother, Harper embarks on a global manhunt, flying first to Africa, then Zurich to expose a high-level cover-up inside a powerful food conglomerate.

But Harper has a few secrets of her own--starting with her lethal martial arts skills--and she's not afraid to take on any hired guns or guerrillas standing in her way. In trying to cover their tracks, the conspirators made one fatal miscalculation: they didn't count on Harper McDaniel coming for them.

He has won the Edgar Award and the Shamus and several of his novels have been optioned for film.
