Bonnie Ramthun’s first book, Ground Zero, published by G.P. Putnam, has sold over 90,000 copies and has been translated into Japanese and Italian. (In Italy Ground Zero sells as “The Enigma of the Eighth Player,” a name the author adores.) Her second Eileen Reed mystery, Earthquake Games, was a finalist for Colorado Book of the Year and hailed by the Washington Post for its “unrelenting suspense.”
Bonnie followed her Eileen Reed series with the middle grade Torin Sinclair mysteries beginning with The White Gates, published by Random House. The White Gates was a Junior Library Guild premiere selection and a finalist for the Missouri Truman award. Roscoe, the sequel, has been praised as a “page turner and heart warmer all in one.”
Bonnie is a former chapter president of Mystery Writers of America and served as the published author liaison for the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers. She lives in Erie, Colorado with her husband Bill, their children, two cats and a very energetic German Shorthair Pointer named Watson.

Ramthun's Ground Zero is a techno-thriller murder mystery that kept me turning the pages. If Tom Clancy and Agatha Christie had written together, this is what would have resulted. I loved the cutting edge technology that makes me wonder if she endangered her security clearance, but I also love the classic mystery of a real locked room, with the revelation that had me making the traditional Christie head smack, saying, "I shoulda known!" But even better, I loved and cared about the people, from the not-so-geeky computer programmers to the cops. The professional women are both fun, but real, and could easily be my friends. And finally, the story hangs together, front to back, top to bottom. Without a doubt, I think this is a great read!
I wanted this book in a more portable form because it is an old friend, good for a re-read any time. It still stands up to time, and I hope people like it as much as I do. I bet so.
