About the Author

Award-winning author Joe Clifford has been a homeless junkie living on the street--until he turned his life around. Now, he uses the backdrop of his experience with addiction to shine a light on the misunderstood and marginalized. No one can write with the authority of Joe Clifford when describing the reality of alcohol and drug abuse. Broken Ground is the fourth novel in his award-winning Jay Porter Series, following Lamentation, December Boys, and Give Up the Dead, and followed by Rag and Bone. Joe lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with his wife, Justine, and two sons.

Reviews

"Joe Clifford's latest in the Jay Porter series is a tense, emotional tour de force ferried along on a mystery that's both timely and chilling. Don't miss this!" --Jamie Mason, author of Three Graves Full


"Clifford's edgy prose and masterful pacing, combined with flawed and profoundly human Jay Porter at the helm, make Broken Ground irresistible." --Wendy Walker, author of Emma in the Night


"Joe Clifford writes with empathy, wisdom, and wicked wit about characters at the edge of society, sobriety, and their own tenuous sanity. Broken Ground is a feast, and Jay Porter is a unique noir hero who shines brightly in a dark world." --Nick Petrie, author of Light It Up


Praise for the Jay Porter Series

"The writing snaps. The story crackles. The characters are achingly real." --Meg Gardiner, Edgar Award-winning and best-selling author

"Gritty and gripping, with prose that cuts to the bone. Joe Clifford has crafted a modern noir that pulls no punches." --Riley Sager, New York Times best-selling author


"An estate recycler picks up the fragments of his life by helping others to pick up theirs. What a brilliant noir concept. And Broken Ground, the newest addition to the terrific Jay Porter series, has brilliant writing to match . . . The depth of the characters. The vividness of the New Hampshire winter setting. The importance of the novel's theme. Joe Clifford's a crime writer to pay attention to." --David Morrell, New York Times best-selling author

"Joe Clifford writes the kind of books that I love to read, mysteries that not only make you think, but make you feel. He is a master at creating characters that bind to your DNA and stay with you long after the last page is turned." --Allen Eskens, USA Today best-selling author​​
