Loren D. Estleman is one of Americas most prolific and acclaimed mystery writers. He is the author of more than 65 books and has been awarded more than 17 national writing awards. Many of these awards have been for his mystery series, but surprising, he has also won numerous awards for his series of Westerns, one of the few authors who are able to write top quality fiction in more than one genre. He is perhaps most well known for the 20 books he has written featuring hard boiled Detroit detective Amos Walker. The recently released “The Left Handed Dollar” is the latest installment in the Amos Walker series.
