About the Author

Erik Storey is a former ranch hand, wilderness guide, dogsled musher, and hunter. He spent his childhood summers growing up on his great-grandfather's homestead or in a remote cabin in Colorado's Flat Tops wilderness. He has earned a number of sharpshooter and marksman qualifications. He is the author of three Clyde Barr novels, Nothing Short of Dying, A Promise to Kill, and the forthcoming Leave No One Alive. He and his family live in Grand Junction, Colorado.


"One of the best thrillers of the year. . . Extraordinarily well-written and well-crafted, A Promise to Kill is exciting, entertaining, plausible, realistic, and moves along flawlessly...This is a truly great thriller--so full of nail-biting suspense and surprises and fast-paced action that it actually is difficult to put down. Erik Story is not just a really good writer--he's a great one."-- "The Washington Times"
"One of the summer's best mystery novels...A Sam Peckinpah via Peter Fonda motorcycle western, but with drones....[Storey] gives a high-country nod to the influence of legendary Florida mystery Β­writer John D. MacDonald." -- "Outside"
"Nail-biting . . . Readers will have a hard time putting this thriller down."-- "Publishers Weekly"
"You will be hard-pressed to find anything this year that approaches the quality of this...A Promise to Kill is a terrific novel with a timeless premise: a stranger wanders into a bad situation not of his making, kicks posterior, gets his own posterior kicked, and emerges from the other side, bloodied and bent but unbowed...[Erik Storey's] second novel meets and exceeds the promise of that work, with enough explosions, suspense and fisticuffs to fill three books with change left over. Naturally, I loved every word of it."-- "Joe Hartlaub, Bookreporter"
