About the Book

Prestigious private school comptroller Rob Carmichael likes the safe bets in life. A few weeks before his fortieth birthday, though, Rob’s ordinary existence spins out of control. A heart attack claims Rob’s childhood friend. He alienates his kids and his fiancée. His ex-wife won’t leave him alone. He’s in trouble on the job. Needing an escape from his problems and a chance to regroup, Rob joins the American Association of Afterlife Arrangers for their annual Las Vegas convention. In the desert, surrounded by people whose business is death, Rob discovers the safe bets are off, and that if he wants his life back, he’ll need to bet against the house for a change.

He now divides his time between Juneau and Kodiak, Alaska, setting for his two mystery novels, Bitter Cold and The Stir of Ashes.

When he is not writing during summer days, Doug can often be found on the golf course, frequently following a good shot with a particularly bad one.
