I'm Mark Pryor and I write crime fiction, the kinds of stories I grew up reading,
where the good guys hunt the bad guys and sometimes it's not clear who's who....
First let me mention my Hugo Marston series, which is set mostly in Paris, but also in London and Barcelona.Hugo is the head of security at the US Embassy in Paris, and a former FBI profiler, a rather old-fashioned kind of hero, I like to think.
As well as the Hugo Marston series, I'm very excited about my stand-alone novel, HOLLOW MAN, released on September 1, 2015. It's a psychological thriller and is set right here in Austin. Publishers Weekly compared its ending with one of my favorite movies, THE USUAL SUSPECTS. I'll take that compliment!
In real life I am a prosecutor in Austin, Texas, a husband, a father, and a barely-above-average soccer player.
THE sorbonne affair ~ now available!
“The flawlessly constructed whodunit sharply contrasts with the gritty flashbacks to Hugh’s past, a subplot that rewards series fans with a new layer of depth to the central characters.”
"Entertaining. . . . A fascinating cast, an intriguing subplot that delves into Hugo’s past, and a gorgeous Parisian setting add to the story’s appeal."
