Thank you for dropping by.

I am thrilled to announce that the 8th book in the Detective Lane series of mysteries, Indiana Pulcinella, is now available!

I hope you like the new look of the website. I have a feeling that Detective Lane is going to spending a bit of time in the sunshine in an upcoming book!

Praise for Glycerine:
"Ryan writes in a no-nonsense prose that reads like a police procedural destined for the screen."
  - Mari Sasano, Alberta Views
Praise for Foxed:
Ryan's prose is clear without being flashy, his antagonist is suitably villainous without descending into melodrama, the police themselves show a laudable diligence and the supporting characters are allowed their own flashes of competence and plunk."
  - Publishers Weekly
“Ryan has penned a haunting, psychological drama of the first order.”
- Edmonton Journal
“Watching Lane and Harper unpeel the layers of this particular onion is an amazing experience.”
- The Star Phoenix
"Ryan's books are proof that mysteries can be as satisfying in a literary sense as traditional novels."
- Drewey Wayne Gunn, professor emeritus of Texas A&M University-Kingsville.
