About the Author

Dietrich Kalteis is an award-winning author. His debut, Ride the Lightning, was hailed as one of the best Vancouver crime novels. He lives on Canada's west coast, in Vancouver, British Columbia, and spends as much time as possible in California.


"A lot of people try to write books like this. Kalteis not only succeeds, he takes it to another level." -- Dana King, two-time Shamus Award nominee and author of the Penns River series
"The time spent on the characters allows for the development of more fleshed-out characters which adds to the enjoyment of the novel." -- Mystery & Suspense Magazine
"Valor, betrayal, and bad alliances collide in this exciting crime novel set on Canada's West Coast ... A brisk pace and sharp attention to character help propel this lean story of chance encounters amid a battle for survival. Fans of gritty crime fiction will be gratified." -- Publishers Weekly
"I've reviewed a few of Dietrich Kalteis' books: Under an Outlaw Moon, Cradle of the Deep, and Zero Avenue. This one just might be my favourite. Well recommended." -- Murder in Common
"Nobody From Somewhere, written by Dietrich Kalteis, is tightly plotted, at times violent, international crime story. Kalteis builds the story slowly, introducing us to different characters and their motives. The story touches on the themes of betrayal, revenge and friendship. Yet the novel is also a sly critique of Vancouver as the land of opportunity. " -- The British Columbia Review
"Kalteis has that direct, no-frills way of writing about people who may not always be the most brightest Crayolas in the box, portraying them with empathy and even compassion -- not always a given in noir fiction, where smug condescension and mockery too often rule. Elmore Leonard had that gift, and so does Kalteis, and he employs it with a wallop here." -- Thrilling Detective
