Stephen Mertz combines his love of music with crime writing in Hank & Muddy, which Max Allan Collins called "a terrific novel." Mertz has had a long and varied career in fiction, penning thrillers including Dragon Games, The Korean intercept, and Fade to Tomorrow. But that barely scratches the surface. The Arizona-based writer sat for an interview with Gravetapping, in which he admits to quite a few pseudonymous adventures as well: The Interview.
His novel for Perfect Crime is available at amazon:
