Chris Culver is the New York Times bestselling author of the Ash Rashid series of mysteries. After graduate school, Chris taught courses in ethics and comparative religion at a small liberal arts university in southern Arkansas. While there and when he really should have been grading exams, he wrote The Abbey, which spent sixteen weeks on the New York Times bestseller's list and introduced the world to Detective Ash Rashid.

“He was too old to be working, too young to be dead and too broke to do anything else. Life's a bitch, sometimes...”
Chris Culver, Just Run

“I hope you’ve enjoyed the book you just read because I certainly had a lot of fun writing it. If you did enjoy the book, please consider telling other readers by leaving a review on Amazon. As a relatively unknown author, it’s difficult to get my name out there. Reviews and reader recommendations are the lifeblood of my career. I would be deeply appreciative if you take a few minutes to share your thoughts. Also,”
Chris Culver, The Abbey
