About Me:
Reece Hirsch’s first book, THE INSIDER, was a finalist for the 2011 International Thriller Writers Award for Best First Novel. THE ADVERSARY (Thomas & Mercer) is the first book in a new series of thrillers featuring former DOJ cybercrimes prosecutor Chris Bruen, who hunts down hackers and cybercriminals on behalf of his clients. Both books draw upon Hirsch's experiences as an attorney—although his legal work is a lot less exciting and hazardous than Bruen's. Hirsch is a partner in the San Francisco office of an international law firm, specializing in privacy and data security law. He is also a member of the board of directors of 826 National ( Hirsch lives in the Bay Area with his wife and a small, unruly dog.

In my post today at Criminal Minds, I imagine what it would be like to face off against the Method actor from hell in a little thing I call "There Will Be Milkshake."

Reece - it was great to see and hear you at the book launch in SF's Book Passage. Bought the book and then had to finish it asap. What a page turner -- you've mastered the art of compelling the reader to go on to the next chapter -- you literally can't put the book down. The SF details are impeccable and the law firm politics ring true. The Insider is a must read.

Reece - have been pestering the folks at M is for Mystery about your book launch. Understand it will be soon. Looking forward to seeing you again in the near future. Take care!

Congrats on your book and thanks for the friendship. I lived in SF for years and loved it. It's still one of the top five cities in the country where to set a noir crime.

Well I guess the all the friend invites are parts of your marketing, anyways, an author who likes The Wire and Lehane can´t be ignored. That said, I will most definitely check out your novel if it makes it´s way to the Swedish stores.

Thanks for the invitation, Reece. And congratulations on the novel coming out this year. By the way, I was a reporter for the Contra Costa Times (Walnut Creek) many years ago before I entered law enforcement. Small world.

Hi Reece, yes indeed in the thick of it. It was a great time and sadly our industry hasn't built on that enthusiasm. Editing is of course much different now with digital but to me it is really the time all the elements in a film come together. The editor's role has been reduced in many way, which I think is sad as many director's don't use the skills of an editor to compliment their work.

Hi Reece, This is such a rich field of new and established authors as well as us readers.
(Couple on my list came up as gobbledygook.. J L Burke and James Ellroy. When I was joining up here, suddenly the blue moon come up perfectly circular in an extraordinary ox-blood colour. It rose up spectacularly from behind the hills of the Welsh coastline in mist-free clear sky for a while. When mists obscured it, carried on typing in the dusk, hit or missing the keyboard. Surreal too, in focussing on a whole train of crime/noir authors and TV shows much loved). Jenna

congratulations on your book. I will definitely check it out.

Looks like you've been a busy boy with your invites! Best wishes, Pauline
