Clea Simon

A former journalist, Clea Simon is the Boston Globe-bestselling author of three nonfiction books and nearly 30 mysteries, including the new psychological suspense "HOLD ME DOWN." While most of these (like her recent "A Cat on the Case") are cat “cozies” or amateur sleuth, she also writes darker crime fiction, like the rock and roll mystery "World Enough," named a “must read” by the Massachusetts Book Awards. Her new psychological suspense "Hold Me Down" (Polis Books) returns to the music world, with themes of PTSD and recovery, as well as love in all its forms. New York Times bestseller Lisa Unger called "Hold Me Down" “provocative, moving, and suspenseful. Don’t miss it,” while Caroline Leavitt (also a New York Times bestseller) said, “Clea Simon’s devastatingly powerful mystery hits you like a punch in the heart.”
