Neal Griffin is a twenty-seven year veteran of Southern California law enforcement and a graduate of the FBI National Academy, where he studied forensic science and police ethics. Neal’s debut novel, BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT, published by Forge, spent seven weeks on the L.A. Times Bestseller list. Booklist wrote, “This debut boasts the creepy, dangerous feel of the film Cape Fear”. His follow up novel, A VOICE FROM THE FIELD, features Detective Tia Suarez, who Publishers Weekly called “a decent cop trying to do her duty”. Neal’s third novel, BY HIS OWN HAND, was released by Forge Books in April 2018.
