About Bradley Harper
Jack the Ripper meets Sherlock Holmes’ creator, Arthur Conan Doyle, in my debut novel A KNIFE IN THE FOG, a Finalist for the 2019 Edgar Award for Best First Novel and winner of the Silver Falchion Award at Killer Nashville for Best Mystery, and recently named as a Recommended Read by the Arthur Conan Doyle Estate. My second novel, QUEENS GAMBIT, pits my female protagonist, Margaret Harkness, against an anarchist assassin who has both Margaret and Queen Victoria in his sights. GAMBIT was recently awarded the 2020 Silver Falchion Award both as Best Suspense and as Book of the Year.

During my 37 years of active duty as a pathologist, I performed over 200 autopsies, and my clinical years are interwoven with four stints as the commanding officer of various medical units. I was an Infantry officer before medical school, worked in the Pentagon, and learned to speak five languages. Yet, I also happily play Santa each Christmas (with my loving wife as Mrs. Claus). It is this juxtaposition of exploring the body, mind, and humanity that allows me to examine the mysteries of the past. Come and join me, for the Game's afoot!
