Judge Janice Law is an acclaimed author of mystery fiction. The Watergate scandal inspired her to write her first novel, "The Big Payoff", which introduced Anna Peters, a street-smart young woman who blackmails her boss, a corrupt oil executive. The novel was a success, winning an Edgar nomination, and Law went on to write eight more in the series, including "Death Under Par" and "Cross-Check." Law has written historical mysteries, standalone suspense, and, most recently, the Francis Bacon Mysteries, which include "The Prisoner of the Riviera", winner of the 2013 Lambda Literary Gay Mystery Award.
