About the Author
Stuart Woods worked in the advertising business and eventually wrote two non-fiction books before being given an advance to write a novel he had been pondering for nearly a decade. Woods' first novel, Chiefs, was published in March 1981. The story was inspired by a police chief's badge Woods had found in his grandmother's home. The badge was stained with blood and pockmarked by buckshot. It had belonged to his grandfather, who died wearing it 10 years before Mr. Woods was born. Chiefs won an Edgar Award and was made into a TV miniseries starring Charlton Heston. Woods has published 41 novels in a 28-year career, and has now had and has now had twenty-nine consecutive New York Times bestsellers in hardback. Stuart Woods graduated from the University of Georgia in 1959 with a degree in Sociology. He lives in Atlanta, Georgia.
