About the Author
CHRIS KNOPF's four Sam Acquillo mysteries have received exceptional accolades, with critics likening Sam to Dashiell Hammett's Sam Spade, Raymond Chandler's Philip Marlowe, and Robert Parker's Spenser, while repeatedly comparing Knopf to Elmore Leonard, and both John D. and Ross MacDonald. All these mysteries had subrights sales in the UK, Canada, Japan, Spain, Turkey, Italy, and China. The Last Refuge (2005), Two Ti m e (2007), and Hard Stop (2009) were finalists for the Connecticut Book Award. Two Time was one of thirteen mysteries listed as "Recommended Summer Reading" in The New York Times Book Review and was listed in Entertainment Weekly as one of the 50 "Hot Picks" of that summer. Publishers Weekly chose it as one of the "Best 100 Books for 2006." Head Wounds (2008) won the 2008 Ben Franklin Award for Best Mystery.
