When John Verdon retired from a Manhattan advertising agency and moved to the western Catskills, he took on a new project: the ongoing adventures of fictional NYPD detective Dave Gurney, himself retired and trying to live quietly in upstate New York. The first Verdon novel, Think of a Number, established John as one of today’s finest mystery writers. The newest Gurney murder mystery is Let the Devil Sleep. John Verdon joins Bill Jaker to tell about the art of the whodunit.
