Locations-Bangkok & Los Angeles
Timothy Hallinan is the award-winning author of twenty highly praised novels. He currently writes two series: the Poke Rafferty Bangkok Thrillers, focused on a Thailand-based American travel writer and his cross-cultural family, the fourth volume of which, The Queen of Patpong, was nominated for the Edgar award; and the Junior Bender Mysteries, about a Los Angeles burglar who moonlights, usually reluctantly, as a private eye for crooks. The Junior Bender series is under development for global cable television and the fourth book in the series, Herbie’s Game, won the 2015 Lefty as Best Humorous Crime Novel. The latest Rafferty book, The Hot Countries, was named one of the best books of 2015 by Library Journal and The Strand Magazine and was nominated for the Macavity award.
In addition to the Lefty, the Edgar, and the Macavity, Hallinan’s books have been nominated for the Shamus and Nero award.
