Editorial Reviews


"I could not put this book down and I highly recommend it to all mystery lovers." -Book Lover VINE VOICE"Foreign Deceit was excellent and Jeff Carson is an awesome new talent." - Book Worm"If you're looking for fast moving, addictive, modern adventure mystery, this read is for you." -C. Law"What I appreciate is Jeff's ability to tell a story, make it believable and keep it fast paced and extremely interesting. I almost lost a night's sleep driving through the final 100 or so pages because I just really wanted to see what happened next." -Greg Wolgin

From the Author

I originally published Foreign Deceit in December of 2012, which I wrote during a thirteen-month stint in a small town in northern Italy with my wife and son. It is my first novel in the David Wolf mystery series. I'll always remember pecking on the keyboard for hours in a little muggy room while listening to screaming fifty-cc engines and Italian chatter floating past the open window, sucking in exhaust fumes in the morning, the Egyptian joint's pizza aromas at noon, and mouthwatering fish smells on Fridays. 

I enjoyed writing this first book so much, and wasn't prepared for how much stress it would cause as well (thank goodness for Prosecco). I probably would have felt more strain had I known the process wouldn't be done until a year later, when I was back in Colorado -- back where I had found myself longing for while writing that first version of the novel.

This is the first in what I intend to be a long line of mystery thriller books starring David Wolf and his friends in the department in the up-and-coming ski resort town of Rocky Points, Colorado. I hope it's as much of an adventure for you to read as it was for me to write.

Jeff Carson is the International-Bestselling author of the David Wolf and Ali Falco Series. Set in the high country of Colorado, mountain west, and Europe, his books are chock-full of action, mystery, thrills, suspense, and twists you'll never see coming. Add a bit of humor and romance, a colorful cast of characters, all set in ruggedly beautiful territory, and it's clear why the novels have gained acclaim among readers.

The first novel in the David Wolf series, Foreign Deceit, is an international mystery-thriller he wrote while living in Italy for a year with his wife and son. The next 15 books in the still ongoing David Wolf series are set in the mountain-western United States. The Ali Falco series stars a detective in the Siena region of Tuscany, Italy.   

Jeff acquired a love for adventure-thriller-mystery-suspense fiction at a young age by listening to audio books while driving the vast landscapes of the western U.S. with his family. One leg of a trip from Denver to Payette, Idaho (to visit relatives) was enough time to squeeze in a good Cussler, a Christie, a Child, a Silva, a Box, a Flynn, a Cornwell, a Baldacci, or one of the others he considers master story-tellers. Now he incorporates many the same elements of those authors in his own writing.

Jeff and his wife currently live with their two sons in Colorado.
