J. Carson Black

When a suspected child-killer’s plane landed with all the pomp and circumstance of the space shuttle in Boulder, Colorado, J. Carson Black, a political junkie, took note. As it turned out, John Mark Karr did not kill JonBenet Ramsey; he’d merely played the media and fed their insatiable 24/7 appetite. This was the New American Way: celebrity for its own sake. That seed grew into into J. Carson Black’s bestselling thriller, The Shop. In “The Bluelight Special,” Black brings back The Shop’s idiosyncratic black ops specialist, Cyril Landry.  

In addition to being a stickler for good grammar, Landry has a wife and daughter who don’t know about his secret life as a killer. When he visits his brother’s horseracing operation in the Midwest, Landry finds a cause worth fighting for—and a foe worth taking out.

Her story, "The Bluelight Special," was published in Uncommon Assassins.
