Publisher Comments:

Adam Jordan wrote the best and worst articles of his journalistic career on the same day. The worst was bad enough to get him fired - but the best landed him a new job, penning lurid articles for Real Detective magazine, one of the last of the true-crime pulps.

About the Author

Nominated for the prestigious Edgar Allan Poe Award for Best First Novel for Floater in 1986, Joseph Koenig followed this debut with three more novels in close succession, culminating with the New York Times Notable Book Brides of Blood in 1993. He hasn't published a novel since - until now. False Negative marks the author's triumphant return to publishing with his most personal novel yet, a tale of the last days of the pulp era told as only a veteran of that era could tell it.
