Jack Wallen is what happens when a Gen Xer mind-melds with present day snark. Jack is a seeker of truth and a writer of words with a quantum mechanical pencil and a disjointed beat of sound and soul. Although he resides in the unlikely city of Louisville, Kentucky, Jack likes to think of himself more as an interplanetary traveler, on the lookout for the Satellite of Love and a perpetual movie sign...or so he tells the reflection in the mirror (some times in 3rd person). Jack is the author of numerous tales of dark, twisty fiction including the I Zombie series, the Klockwerk Movement, the Fringe Killer series, Shero, The Nameless Saga, and much more.

J.A. Konrath for the LGBT community
Like Konrath's heroine, Wallen's Jamie Davenport is a strong-willed police officer, but in A Blade Away officer Davenport faces a case like nothing her Chicago counterpart has ever seen. Someone is stalking Louisville's crossdressing community, but with a motive far more dark and complex than mere malice.
With her 'fabulous' partner and a colorful supporting cast, Davenport must race against an unreasonable deadline set by her narrow-minded chief to catch a serial killer bent on something much more significant than murder.
Wallen weaves a complex and engaging tale with this thriller, and even the killer is sympathetic at times. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested something beyond the run-of-the-mill detective novel.
