Vincent Patrick has a work background appropriate for a novelist’s book jacket. Born in the Bronx, New York, he finished both high school and engineering college at night and has had a remarkable range of jobs. He’s been a door-to-door Bible salesman, bartender, restaurant owner, Standard-bred Pacer owner, vice-president of an engineering consulting firm, teacher in a community college (writing fiction in the off-hours from his late teens.) After the publication of his first novel, The Pope of Greenwich village, he wrote screenplays for many years, including the script for the movie of Pope of Greenwich Village (with Micky Rouark and Eric Roberts) and for the movie of his second novel, Family Business (Sean Connery, Dustin Hoffman and Mathew Broderick, Directed by Sidney Lumet.) He says that he wrote SMOKE SCREEN as 'a thriller with an emphasis on character, including the villain's.'
