True Crime & Thriller Authors: Your First Book

Rick ReedQuestions

Question: What was the first book you wrote?

Answer: My writing career began with true crime book, BLOOD TRAIL, the story of my investigation and capture of serial killer, Joseph Weldon Brown.

I decided to write fiction and was signed to a contract by Kensington Books. The first two novels, THE CRUELEST CUT, and THE COLDEST FEAR, were published in 2010 and 2011. Both novels have been translated and sold in Germany and Poland. This was the beginning of the Detective Jack Murphy thriller series.

A third Detective Jack Murphy novel is being released in 2016 titled, THE DEEPEST WOUND. The 4th novel THE HIGHEST STAKES, will be available in October 2016. The 5th novel in the series will be available in 2017 (untitled at this time.)

These novels can be read in the order of publication or as standalones.
