About the Author

Award-winning author Joe Clifford was 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. Rag and Bone is the fifth novel in his award-winning Jay Porter series, following Lamentation, December Boys, Give Up the Dead, and Broken Ground. Joe lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with his wife, Justine, and two sons.


"The writing snaps. The story crackles. The characters are achingly real. I tore through Rag and Bone in a single session. What else can I say? Read Joe Clifford." -- Meg Gardiner, 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
"Joe Clifford's Rag and Bone is tough, tight, and engrossing, filled with genuine emotion and unsparing authenticity." -- Lou Berney, Edgar Award-winning author
"...will appeal to fans of noir fiction." -- Library Journal
"Steve Ulfelder's fans will be pleased." -- Publishers Weekly
"Clifford is one fine writer ... for those who eat, drink, and sleep noir, this one's for you." -- Booklist

"As often happens in life for those with addiction issues, Clifford's [Rag and Bone] doesn't portray a fairy tale happy-ever-after ending. The author strives to depict through his characters the dangers of drug addiction. In that, he succeeds. Brilliantly!" -- Bookreporter.com
