Kathleen Kent

Kathleen Kent's fourth book, The Dime, is a contemporary crime novel set in Dallas, and is based on a short story published in the crime anthology Dallas Noir. It was shortlisted for the Edgar Award. The New York Times picked The Dime as one of their "Latest and Greatest" in crime fiction, March 2017.

A Kirkus starred review says, "Kent's detective is Sam Spade reincarnated as a brilliant modern woman."

Ms. Kent is also the author of three bestselling historical novels, The Heretic's Daughter--recipient of the David J. Langum Sr. award for American historical fiction-The Traitor's Wife, and The Outcasts, which was the recipient of the American Library Association's 2014 top choice for Historical Fiction, as well as the recipient of a Will Rogers Medallion Award for Western fiction.
