Rob Riley


Rob Riley lives with his wife Mary Lynne in SE Wisconsin. He spent thirty-two years as a Milwaukee police officer—seven years working undercover on the narcotics squad, twenty-two years as a major crimes detective. Writing and reading have been his lifelong passions, and he began writing short stories more than thirty years ago. Police work provided both the inspiration and the insight for writing PI crime mystery novels. His previous novel, Portrait of Murder, won a Lovey award at the Love Is Murder crime mystery conference in Chicago, Illinois in 2013. Dead Last is the second in the ongoing Jack Blanchard PI mystery series. A third novel has been completed, and additional works are in progress.
