Robert Crais

Raised on the banks of the Mississipi.  Writer on shows such as "Hill Street Blues," "Cagney and Lacey," and "Miami Vice." Creator of beloved crime fiction character, Elvis Cole. 

"In crime fiction, we push it to the edge. That's where we live. It's a canvas that allows me to see men and women in extremis. And that's where I want them to be."
