Clayton Lindemuth writes noir because that's where he lives. His debut, Cold Quiet Country, earned a coveted Starred Review from Publishers Weekly.

Clayton's follow-up novels Nothing Save the Bones Inside Her and My Brother's Destroyer deliver all the "thrilling, visceral, unsparing" (Publishers Weekly) prose that generated comparisons to noir masters such as Donald Ray Pollack, Tom Franklin, Ron Rash, William Gay, and Daniel Woodrell.

When Clayton is not writing, he's training for a marathon or reading economics or apologetics. He's a dog lover and eternally misses Arizona. Clayton lives in Missouri with his wife Julie and his puppydog Faith, also known as "Princess Wigglebums."
