John McMahon studied creative writing at the University of Arizona and has served as an ad agency director, working with the likes of Fiat and Alpha Romeo. His debut mystery-thriller novel, The Good Detective, presents detective P.T. Marsh on a disastrous path of poor choices and rash decisions after the deaths of his wife and young son. The morning after delivering his own brand of justice on a woman’s abusive boyfriend, P.T. must confront the possibility that he brought about the violent man’s death. To make matters worse, the dead man is soon tied to the body of a black teenager found in a burned-out field, which may also have connections to a conspiracy dating back to the American Civil War. Did P.T. kill the only suspect in this ever-evolving crime scene? John and his family currently reside in Southern California where he stays busy at work on the next P.T. Marsh book.
John will be in conversation with Matt Coyle, the award-winning author of the best-selling Rick Cahill crime novels and a great friend of the bookstore. Matt resides in San Diego with his yellow Lab, Angus.
