About the Authors

mystery of a number of disembodied feet that washed up on the
shores of British Columbia and Washington State.
Known as "the Norwegian Dan Brown," Tom Egeland is a former
journalist and author of "The Circle's End," "The Night of the
Wolves," and "The Gospel of Lucifer" (winner of the Riverton

Called “an unstoppable force in Swedish crime fiction,” Liza
Marklund is the author of the internationally acclaimed Annika
Bengtzon series. Her most recent book "The Postcard Killers," a
collaboration with James Patterson, went to # 1 on The New York
Times Bestseller list.
