J.D. Knight welcomes readers to his official web site, where you can enjoy samples from his novels featuring private investigator Virgil Roy Proctor and defense attorney Andrea Faber.

His first novel, ZERO TOLERANCE, was nominated for a Shamus Award by the Private Eye Writers of America, received a rave review from Publishers Weekly, and was praised by New York Times bestselling author Richard North Patterson as "an impressive debut, with a rapid story, flavorful writing and a richly poetic sense of place."

The next book in the series, THE DEVIL'S JUKEBOX, is an exciting mixture of private eye thriller and courtroom drama that finds Virgil and Andrea racing to halt an illegal execution on San Quentin's death row.  During the final days of a frantic appeal, the attorney and detective uncover a conspiracy of power brokers who will stop at nothing to silence the truth. 

New York Times bestselling author John Lescroart says: "J.D. Knight  wields a mean pen with authority and panache.  Drop dead dialogue, characters that live and breathe, verisimilitude and street cred you can smell and touch – this writer is the real deal."
