BioJAMES HARPER is the creator of the Evan Buckley crime thrillers. Raised on a diet of Philip Marlowe and Travis McGee, it’s easy to see how they turned out the way they did. Combining murder, mystery, and mayhem with a healthy dose of humor thrown in, the novels feature wise-cracking, street-smart private-eye Evan Buckley, and include Bad To The Bones, Kentucky Vice, No Rest For The Wicked and Hunting Dixie.
James has been a lecturer, a web designer and an accountant (where his natural talent for making stuff up wasn’t always appreciated), so he decided to change tack and write fiction to put it to better use. In his spare time James does what he’s told (if he knows what’s good for him) and likes touring Europe on his motorbike.
He currently lives in a 400 year old cottage in the woods in the UK with his wife and their cat, a big bad hunter called Armstrong, who features in some of James’ novels.

WHEN Jessica Henderson falls, naked as the day she was born, to her death from the window of her fifteenth floor apartment, the police are quick to write it off as an open and shut case of suicide. The room was locked from the inside, after all.
But Jessica’s sister doesn’t believe it and hires the man the police call that idiot Buckley to investigate. The deeper Evan digs, the more he discovers the dead girl had fallen in more ways than one. And if that wasn’t enough, everybody gets a hard lesson in just how wrong you can be when you only see what you want to.
As the mystery unravels, two things become abundantly clear – Jessica was no angel and Evan’s not the idiot people think he is.
