Rick Mofina's blog #2 dispatches from a criminal mind

Got a nice gift over the holidays. My most recent book, A PERFECT GRAVE has been named one of the best paperbacks of 2007, by DEADLY PLEASURES, the online magazine known as America's premier fan-oriented mystery magazine. The book is the 3rd in my series featuring rookie crime reporter Jason Wade. The series is popular in the US and Canada; and in Norway, where Schibsted of Oslo publishes it. In A PERFECT GRAVE, Wade's pursuit of the murder of a beloved Seattle nun, leads him to a hermit nun, a mysterious religious order, and a dark secret that has haunted is father, an ex-Seattle cop for years.

A PERFECT GRAVE has also been nominated for a Best Novel Award in the Rising Star category from Spinetingler Magazine. See the blog. Crime Zine Report - http://crimezine.blogspot.com/

Established authors have been kind to the series.

"Mofina is one hell of a story teller." -- Håkan Nesser

"A PERFECT GRAVE is a lightning-paced thriller with lean, tense writing. Rick Mofina really knows how to make a story fly." -- Tess Gerritsen, New York Times bestselling author of THE MEPHISTO CLUB

Tom Reed, Walt Sydowski (5 books) remain on hiatus, as do Jason Wade and his old man Henry (3 books).

I've just submitted the mss. for my 9th book, my forthcoming standalone thriller, SIX SECONDS, due for release 2009 January in paperback.

And soon I'll start my 10th book, which will launch my third series - to debut later in 2009.

Expect this new series to continue in the Reed-Wade tradition with the introduction of another reporter facing entangled in an extraordinary situation.

******************************************************* THE BUZZ – in Canada and the U.S.

In other news, on December 16th, Ottawa Citizen Mystery reviewer, Mike Gillespie mentioned the following tidbit below in his column which goes out to some of Canada's largest newspapers through the CanWest News Service

"Mofina is now working on the new standalone thriller Six Seconds, one that while a year from publication (January 2009) is already creating buzz in mystery circles after a major star in the genre previewed an early manuscript and gave it a five-star rating."

Thanks Bob, I think it's a pretty solid little book. But I am biased. People seem to be enjoying it.

A Perfect Grave awaits me at the library when I can get down my hill which has a foot of snow. Right now I am reading Agent Zigzag, a great nonfiction espionage

Last Call by Grippando is next (in my lap as I write this note). I am not too sure about reading a book with the title of A Perfect Grave--too close for comfort at my age, but I remember Robert Fulghum, author of All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten, writing of lying down in an empty grave while he considered his future.

In Uh-Oh, he wrote of trying to spread the ashes of a deceased parisioner's husband from an airplane at 5,000 feet. The slipstream made havoc of the interior of the plane. So if A Perfect Grave isn't my grave, I cease to worry and will read your novel with pleasure.

Thanks for inviting me. I have already checked into your books and will read them. Any one who like "Homicide" has got to be good!

Just finished The Perfect Grave. What a great book. I placed the first two in the Jason Wade series on my wish list.
