Autobiography for Quais du Polar

In my books there are no private eyes, no glamour girls, no crime lords.  I look for the “noir” in everyday life.  Show me a family picnic on the beach, and I will discern secrets worth killing for, and psychic wounds that are passed from one generation to the next.  A great way to make a living!
