Paul Cleave is an internationally bestselling author who is currently dividing his time between his home city of Christchurch, New Zealand, where all of his novels are set, and Europe, where none of his novels are set. His work has been translated into fifteen languages. He has won the Ngaio Marsh award for best crime novel, he won the Saint-Maur book festival’s crime novel of the year in France, has been shortlisted for the Edgar Award and the Barry Award in the US, has been shortlisted for the Ned Kelly award in Australia, and has hit the #1 spot on Amazon in three different countries. When he’s not writing, he spends his time swearing on a golf course, swearing on a tennis court, or trying to add to his list of 25 countries where he’s thrown his Frisbee. His eighth novel, Five Minutes Alone, will be released later this year. He is a finalist for the 2014 Ngaio Marsh Award for Best Crime Novel with Joe Victim.
