About the Author

Darcy O'Brien (1939-1998) was born in Los Angeles, California. He is a bestselling author of eleven works of fiction and nonfiction, including the PEN/Hemingway Award-winning novel A Way of Life, Like Any Other, based on his experiences with his movie-star parents, George O'Brien and Marguerite Churchill; The Hidden Pope, nominated for the Pulitzer Prize; The Hillside Stranglers, which became a bestseller and was made into an NBC TV movie; and Murder in Little Egypt, winner of the Edgar Award. O'Brien's knowledge of the field of criminal justice made him a frequent speaker and panelist on television and radio, and he published numerous articles in the New York Times and the Los Angeles Times, among others.

Reviews

"An arresting look into the troubled psyches of these criminals and into the depressed Kentucky economy that became fertile territory for narcotics dealers, theft rings and bootleggers." -Publishers Weekly

"The smell of wet, coal-laden earth, white lightning, and cocaine-driven sweat arises from these marvelously atmospheric-and compelling-pages." -Kirkus Reviews

"O'Brien creates a fascinating portrait of the mountain way of life and thought that forged the lives of these criminals." -Library Journal
