Gregg Hurwitz is the critically acclaimed, New York Times and internationally bestselling author of 13 thrillers. His most recent, TELL NO LIES, is a stand-alone title featuring Daniel Brasher, who, after receiving a series of anonymous threats meant for others, finds himself and his loved ones unexpectedly on the radar of a relentless serial killer. In this interview with Bookreporter.com’s Joe Hartlaub, Hurwitz talks about why he’s drawn to complicated characters like Brasher, and the one morally resonant question that served as the jumping-off point for the entire plot. He also discusses what it really means when people talk about “place as character” and how that played out in his choice to set TELL NO LIES in San Francisco --- as well as a few theories as to why the city historically has been the site of so many serial murders.
