Life hasn’t worked out the way Ray Lamar planned. A widower and father who has made some tragic mistakes, he’s got one good thing going for him: he’s calm, cool, and efficient under pressure, usually with a gun in his hand. useful skill to have when you’re paid to hurt people who stand in your boss’s way. Urban Waite is the author of the critically acclaimed novel The Terror of Living. His short fiction has appeared in The Best of the West Anthology, the Southern Review, and other literary journals. He grew up in Seattle, attended the University of Washington, and studied writing at Western Washington University and Emerson College. He lives in Seattle with his wife.
