About this author

T. J. English is an author, journalist and screenwriter with an emphasis on organized crime, the criminal underworld, and the criminal justice system. Many of his books have been national bestsellers, including THE SAVAGE CITY, HAVANA NOCTURNE, PADDY WHACKED, and THE WESTIES.

In addition, English has written episodes of the television crime dramas NYPD Blue and Homicide: Life on the Streets.
