Fiction. THE OTHER ROMANIAN is Anne Argula's fourth novel featuring her acerbic and tough-talking detective, Quinn. The first of these fast and clever novels, HOMICIDE MY OWN, earned Argula an Edgar nomination for Best Paperback Original. This latest work continues with that same tone: smart, sexy, and definitely off-beat. If you haven't met Quinn yet, you're in for a welcome surprise. If you have met her, welcome back. Argula starts you guessing with the first line, and you aren't likely to stop guessing until the very last line.
Anne Argula is a pen name used by former screenwriter Darryl Ponicsan (Taps, Nuts, School Ties, and others) for several mysteries set in the Pacific Northwest. He was born in Northeast Pennsylvania and currently resides in Sonoma, California. After HOMICIDE MY OWN, the second in the series is Walla Walla Suite (2007), which follows Quinn, who narrated the first book. The third in the series is Krapp's Last Cassette, in which Quinn is hired by a screenwriter to verify the existence of a writer whose book he is adapting for HBO. The title is a play on Samuel Beckett's Krapp's Last Tape. Ponicsan's Quinn novels are marked by humor and coal regions idiom. Author City: SONOMA, CA USA
