Dallas Murphy is the author of the acclaimed three-book series Lover Man, Lush Life, and Don’t Explain, about the reluctant sleuth Artie Deemer, who lives off his dog Jellyroll, star of screen, TV, and dog-food boxes; and the stand-alone crime novel set in Florida, Apparent Wind. Lover Man was nominated for an Edgar for Best First Novel and named a Notable Book of the Year by the New York Times. Murphy has also written nonfiction books about the ocean, including Rounding the Horn, To Follow the Water, Plain Sailing, and, most recently, To the Denmark Strait. He lives in New York City.
All three of Dallas Murphy's Artie Deemer novels, hailed by Publishers Weekly as an "outstanding series," now in one volume for the first time.
The first mystery in Dallas Murphy’s acclaimed Artie Deemer series is a wild ride filled with blackmailers, killers, and crazy combat pilots. An Edgar Award finalist, Publishers Weekly called it one of best novels of the year. You’ll agree.
Follow Artie Deemer and his dog Jellyroll on a road trip to Maine where “getaway” takes on a new meaning as they’re tracked by a serial killer in this outrageously-inventive third novel in Dallas Murphy’s acclaimed mystery series.
