Product description

About the Author

AUTHOR: Stories about crimes have always resonated with me, whether it was Crime and Punishment or The Quiet American. Maybe it's because I started my career as a police reporter, or because I worked for a time as a teacher in the county jail. More than a decade ago, when I decided to finally get serious about writing, I started with short stories based on real misdeeds I'd witnessed. I wrote one about my next door neighbor, who'd been murdered by a friend, another about an ambitious bike racer who decides to take out the competition, and a bunch of others based on characters I met in jail. Over time these got picked up by various magazines online and in print. More than twenty now exist, including a prequel to the "Duncan Cochrane" series in the political crime anthology "Low Down Dirty Vote." In all my work, I am inspired by efforts to right criminal injustice.

EDITOR: We never read enough books in school, so I would remove the dust jacket from my mom's books and steal minutes during class to read. It always felt like I was getting away with something, or discovering a world few of my peers knew existed. I've been writing since middle school, doing it reasonably well for the last decade. While getting my masters in English from Arizona State, I worked at a daily newspaper as columnist and then opinion editor, and also as editor of the Phoenix Air Guard newspaper. Since living in Roanoke, Virginia, I've formed a weekly writers group and become active in the online peer review community. I published a non-fiction book on digital piracy in 2011, and have several short stories in print. I dabble in horror and YA, but feel at home in literary fiction. Some of my favorites include Neil Gaiman, Cormac McCarthy, Kurt Vonnegut, and Stephen King, but I'm not a hard sell: I'll read anything. If I'm not reading, I'm listening. Audiobooks comprise at least half of what I consume, and offer a great excuse to go on long walks. I have narrated four commercially available titles and produced a dozen more. For me, editing is taking something I already love and helping it grow. I appreciate thick skin and an open mind. In writing, often both are necessary for success. After all, writing is rewriting. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

A Chicago native, David Hagerty writes about the politics and crime that made the Second City infamous.

His series stars Duncan Cochrane, an ambitious businessman turned gubernatorial candidate whose daughter is murdered six weeks before the election. As the police investigation follows a series of false leads, Duncan uses his grief to woo voters and his growing political clout to search for the killer.

They Tell Me You Are Wicked is a political thriller and a murder mystery by Evolved Press.

The second book in the series, They Tell Me You Are Crooked, follows a series of sniper killings in Chicago's most infamous public housing complex and a blackmail plot that could derail Duncan's career.

In book three, They Tell Me You Are Brutal, a saboteur is poisoning pain medications. Meanwhile, Duncan's son can't keep the family secret to himself, putting them all at risk of ruin.

Book four, They Tell Me You Are Cunning, follows Duncan after he has left office. Although he resolves to stay out of public and out of politics, an allegation of police brutality and false confession pulls him back into the spotlight. As he investigates the conviction of an inmate on death row, he tries to protect his own son from prison as well.

Readers describe the series as &quot;full of twists and turns,&quot; &quot;suspenseful,&quot; and &quot;hard to put down.&quot;

A prequel to the series, Chicago Style, appears in Low Down Dirty Vote, an anthology of political crime fiction.

In addition to his novels, David also writes short stories, including four published in Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine and two published by Big Pulp. One of these, The Pot Hunters, was nominated for a Derringer Award in 2013.
