About this author

When he's not traveling around the globe in the search of exotic, tax-deductible settings for his mysteries, Charles Benoit spends his days pumping out subliminal-laced advertising.
Nominated for an Edgar and a Barry, Relative Danger won the Franklin award and was the darling of fans and critics alike. Out of Order (2006) is set in modern India while Noble Lies (September 2007) takes place in Thailand.


I'm a big fan of BASIC INSTRUCTIONS, the online comic by Scott Meyer. I'm a subscriber (you should be, too) and I have a dozen or so of his comics hanging up in my office. This one should be shared with every person you know who's writing a mystery.

Hit Man by Lawrence Block
Hit Man (Keller, #1)

Re-read this book after 14 years - still as good as I remembered. The narrative style is loose and almost rambling, but that's what makes it different. It's got little to do with the Hits and everything to do with the Man.

What a great, exciting and brilliantly written book. The characters are alive and the descriptions of the Barrio are more vivid than photographs. Baz, the She Thief of the title, is one of those characters that you'll remember long after you've forgo...more

“There's always a but. It's a magical word. You can say anything you want, go on for as long as you want, and then all you have to do is add the magic word and instantly everything you said is erased, turned meaningless, just like that.”
Charles Benoit, You

“The teachers complain that the students today are all lazy, ignorant, and stupid. But the truth is that you're smarter than they are. You're not even old enough to drive and you already know that none of this matters.”
Charles Benoit, You

“When did swearing become so easy? You still would never swear in front of your parents or most adults, but when you're with your friends it's like every fifth word. Why couldn't learning Spanish be that easy?”
Charles Benoit, You
