Miles Corwin

Corwin, a former crime reporter for the Los Angeles Times, is the author of three nonfiction books: "The Killing Season," a national bestseller; "And Still We Rise," the winner of the PEN West award for nonfiction and a Los Angeles Times Best Book of the Year; and "Homicide Special," a Los Angeles Times bestseller. Turning his attention to fiction, Corwin's first novel, "Kind of Blue" introduced Detective Ash Levine, L.A. Felony Special unit. Corwin's hard-earned insider knowledge of homicide investigations and his familiarity with the seamy side of L.A., gives his crime fiction spot-on realism. "Kind of Blue" was named a Top Ten Crime Novel by Booklist in 2011. Midnight Alleyis the second book in this adrenaline packed crime series featuring Detective Ash Levine.
