Welcome and thank you for dropping by!

Catrinas is here!

Detective Lauren Jackson teams with Paul Lane to take on the Untouchables who hide their obscene fortunes in tax havens. The pair travel to Mexico, joining up with other members of their trusted team.

If Jackson, Lane, and their band of amigas survive,
it will create an historical precedent.

Please support local bookstores and the Alberta Children's Hospital by purchasing Catrinas at Pages on Kensington and The Next Page in Inglewood.

All royalties from Catrinas will be donated to the Children's Hospital.

Thank you for your continued support.
I am truly honoured.

Praise for Glycerine:
"Ryan writes in a no-nonsense prose that reads like a police procedural destined for the screen."
  - Mari Sasano, Alberta Views
Praise for Foxed:
Ryan's prose is clear without being flashy, his antagonist is suitably villainous without descending into melodrama, the police themselves show a laudable diligence and the supporting characters are allowed their own flashes of competence and plunk."
  - Publishers Weekly
“Ryan has penned a haunting, psychological drama of the first order.”
- Edmonton Journal
“Watching Lane and Harper unpeel the layers of this particular onion is an amazing experience.”
- The Star Phoenix
"Ryan's books are proof that mysteries can be as satisfying in a literary sense as traditional novels."
- Drewey Wayne Gunn, professor emeritus of Texas A&M University-Kingsville.
