"You know what? The bastard blows me out of the water. This guy writes Maine like Ardai writes New York. If you're not reading him, you don't know what you're missing." --Chris F. Holm, author of "The Collector" series, The Killing Kind, and Red Right Hand.

"A refreshingly new voice in noir." --Ed Kurtz, author of Nothing You Can Do and The Rib From Which I Remake the World.

"A glorious boilermaker of noir and East Coast gothic. The action is taut as a sprung snare and Bagley tightens the screws with every page." -- Laird Barron, author of Swift to Chase and Blood Standard.

New Author Photo

I’m not the most photogenic guy around, but I need a decent author shot. We have a couple of possibilities. Thought I’d run them by you. Here’s the first. What do you think?

Boy, do you look grouchy before finishing your morning coffee.

I think it makes you look too much like a character from a BBC sit-com.

Gee, and I thought Cary Grant had passed away.

Yeah, too urbane. I don't want to come across as elitist.

Aw, noice.

I wouldn't waste that one on an author shot. That pic just screams "Romance Novel Cover Boy" to me. Move over Fabio, there's a new stud-muffin on the block.

Hope you don't mind I borrowed your author photo for my "people reading" feature.
