About the Author
From 1977 until 1986, Burt Weissbourd developed screenplays working with screenwriters including Frederic Raphael (Two for the Road), Alvin Sargent (Ordinary People), Andy Lewis (Klute), Stewart Stern (Rebel Without a Cause), and many others. He also worked with actors including Robert Redford, Lily Tomlin, Goldie Hawn, Sally Field, Diane Keaton, and Al Pacino. During this time he produced films such as Ghost Story, based on the novel by Peter Straub and starring Fred Astaire, and Raggedy Man, starring Sissy Spacek and Sam Shepard. Weissbourd lives in Long Island, New York, with his wife, Dorothy. He has three adult children and three grandsons.

Out of the Past is his third novel in the Callie and Cash series, following the publication of Danger in Plain Sight and Rough Justice.

"Burt Weissbourd is a master of the Amateur Sleuth/Crime Thriller genre and his newest story, Rough Justice continues to demonstrate his genuine flair of originality."
--Midwest Book Review
Praise for Burt Weissbourd"These books transcend the expectations of genre fiction to become literature." --Jacob Epstein, writer and executive story editor of Hill Street Blues, and writer of LA Law"Weissbourd's writing reminds me of the great Raymond Chandler mysteries." --John McCaffrey, KGB Bar Lit Mag"One of the most accomplished elements of this highly entertaining novel is the way that the action hinges on the emotional and interpersonal arc of the story rather than the plot twists's Callie's relationships with the central figures, particularly Cash...that give the story its realistic and heart-stopping impact." --Readers' Favorite"His skill as a writer is obvious and there's a level of polish present in these pages you don't find with less experienced authors...Danger in Plain Sight sets the stage well for Burt Weissbourd to have an impressive run with this character, and he will undoubtedly attract a growing audience with each new additional entry in the series." --Hollywood Digest"Weissbourd delivers a polished page-turner about terrorism, money laundering, and the price of sins rooted in avarice...Tart dialogue, explosive set pieces, and a dexterous narrative style that favors velocity over exposition add to the book's appeal...Thrillers may be a dime a dozen, but memorable characters deserve a longer half-life, so here's hoping Callie and Cash make a welcome return soon." --BlueInk Review"A Woman gets in touch with her inner action hero in this bracing one character toasts, 'Bravo, Callie James.'" --Kirkus Reviews"An inventive thriller whose unconventional heroine learns how to live again." --Foreword
