Murder Ink - John A. Connell

John Connell spent years working as a cameraman on some of the biggest films and television shows, including Jurassic Park and NYPD Blue. He loved the travel, the excitement, and the art of bringing stories to the screen but longed to move from behind the scenes helping bring to life someone else’s story, to writing his own. His novel, Ruins of War, a unique historical thriller set in postwar Germany garnered national acclaim. 
Connell now lives with his wife in Madrid, Spain, where he is currently working on the third book in the Mason Collins series.
The Library recently acquired his debut novel.  Click here to visit Connell online.
