About the Author

John Nardizzi is an award-winning writer and investigator. His crime novels have won praise for crackling dialogue and pithy observations of detective work, and earned a 2022 Shamus Award nomination for Best PI Paperback. He speaks and writes about investigations in numerous settings, including World Association of Detectives, Lawyers Weekly, Pursuit Magazine and PI Magazine. His work on innocence cases led to the exoneration Gary Cifizzari and James Watson (he was awarded the Arc of Justice for the Watson case in 2021), as well as million dollar settlements for clients Dennis Maher and the estate of Kenneth Waters, whose story was featured in the film Conviction. Prior to his PI career, he failed to hold any restaurant job for longer than a week. He lives near Boston, Massachusetts.


"What makes The Burden of Innocence special is that quick twist into a gritty, dirty underworld in which "new evidence" isn't just the dry stuff of too many police procedurals. Here, the most important evidence is in people's heads." -- Booktrib

"A bold new poet of American noir - This is the book Chandler would have written if he'd been a real-life private eye." - Ellen McGarrahan, Author of NYT Editor's Choice Two Truths and a Lie

"A soaring, stirring ride - real as the clang of iron doors closing on an innocent man." - Patrick Moore, Author

"An innocent man is in free fall in the criminal justice system - felons and felonies, dished up with bull's-eye imagery, insight and tone."- Tom Davidson, Author
