About the Author

Franklin College in Franklin, Indiana, has been David's home for the past forty-three years. David has been particularly attracted to the topics of faith development, Catholic-Orthodox relations, and Christian-Muslim dialogue. In 2007, he conducted interviews across the country in monasteries and convents about monastic responses to 9/11. The book based on that experience, Peace Be with You: Monastic Wisdom for a Terror-Filled World, was chosen as one of the Best Books of 2011 by Library Journal. In the past sixteen years, religious terrorism has become an area of specialty. Much of his time in the last ten years has been spent giving talks as well as radio and television interviews on ISIS, Al-Qaeda, and other terrorist organizations.


"As with the other two entries in this series, the homicide detective and the Orthodox priest form an unusual investigative team that, combined with the setting, make Let These Bones Live Again an intriguing mystery and an entertaining thriller."

--NY Journal of Books

"Powerful portraits of strong characters finding love through trust and forgiveness, amid all the sights and scents of modern day Venice -- a masked lady who gives up her secrets begrudgingly. All this and a crackling plot with many an unexpected twist. Though this is the first Worthy/Fortis mystery I have read, it will not be the last."

--Michael Sears, author of Saving Jason

"Fans of Donna Leon will find a good reason to visit Venice again, this time with David Carlson as a guide. Let These Bones Live Again brings together ancient religious rites, dying patients and a youthful protagonist in a compelling, dark mystery."

--Michael Niemann, author of the Valentin Vermeulen series

"David Carlson weaves a masterful story within an Italian setting. A detective father from Detroit and his daughter are thrown together in the most unorthodox fashion to solve a homicide along the canals and architecture of Venice, which he describes beautifully. The reader will bite their nails as unexpected twists and turns escalate the plot into high gear, leading to an unexpected ending."

--Marie Romero Cash, author of the Jemimah Hodge mystery series

"David Carlson puts a novel twist on the challenges of 'East meeting West, ' placing Let These Bones Live Again in a contemporary setting that will appeal to American readers. His blend of police procedure, modern religious differences and medieval practice, cyber crime, deft prose, and the thorough knowledge and skillful use of Venice as the setting and backdrop makes for a winning combination and enjoyable read."

--Bill Rapp, author of the Cold War Thriller series
