JOHN DUNNINGCLICK HERE for John Dunning's biography, a list of his published books, and publisher and editor contacts. Five John Dunning mysteries beginning with Booked to Die feature Cliff Janeway, bookseller and ex-Denver cop. His other books include Two O'Clock Eastern Wartime, a mystery about radio in 1942, On the Air, an extensive encyclopedia of old-time radio, a novel about Denver in the 1920s, and three other earlier mysteries. We only carry a few of John's books, but you should be able to find many of them in your favorite new or used book store in either hardback, paperback, audio, or electronic format.
