About the Author

Tracy Clark is the author of the highly acclaimed Cass Raines Chicago Mystery series, featuring Cassandra Raines, a hard-driving African American PI who works the mean streets of the Windy City dodging cops, cons, and killers. Clark received Anthony Award and Lefty Award nominations for her series debut, Broken Places, which was shortlisted for the American Library Association's RUSA Reading List and named a CrimeReads Best New PI Book of 2018, a Midwest Connections Pick, and a Library Journal Best Book of the Year. Broken Places has since been optioned by Sony Pictures Television. Tracy's short story "For Services Rendered" appears in the anthology Shades of Black: Crime and Mystery Stories by African-American Authors. She is the winner of the 2020 and 2022 G.P. Putnam's Sons Sue Grafton Memorial Award, also receiving a 2022 nomination for the Edgar Award for best short story for "Lucky Thirteen," which appears in the crime fiction anthology Midnight Hour. A Chicago native, she works as an editor in the challenging newspaper business and roots for all Chicago sports teams equally. She's a proud member of Crime Writers of Color, Mystery Writers of America, and Sisters in Crime, and she sits on the boards of Bouchercon National and the Midwest Mystery Conference.

"Another worm's-eye view of the city...marinated in savory civic misdeeds." --Kirkus Reviews

"Clark's second Detective Harriet Foster title (after Hide) provides a compelling plot as well as significant character growth...The lead detectives are new to each other and building trust, and readers will become invested in the fragile bond they currently have, as well as the mystery surrounding Foster and her former partner." --Library Journal (starred review)
