you start, you can't bear to miss a teddy
-- Rita Mae Brown, New York Times
best-selling author of the Mrs. Murphy
“[A] fun series…
Don’t be fooled by the teddy-bear
theme. Lamb’s mysteries are full-bodied
-- Richmond (VA) Times-Dispatch
John Lamb knows more about real murders
than most of his fellow mystery authors
because he used to investigate them
professionally. During his distinguished
eighteen-year career as a Southern California
cop, he served as a homicide investigator,
hostage negotiator, and detective sergeant.
It's this unmistakable atmosphere of
authenticity-and his keen insights into human
behavior-that make his mystery and suspense
novels so satisfying to read.
John is the author of the popular “Bear
Collector” mystery series from Berkley Prime
Crime. The other books in the series include
The False-Hearted Teddy,
The Crafty Teddy,
The Clockwork Teddy,
and The Treacherous
Teddy, all of which debuted on
the IMBA best-seller list. John’s other books
include his debut mystery, Echoes
of the Lost Order, and the
nonfiction San Diego
Specters. Click on the books

Along with being a talented writer, John
is also a riveting public speaker. He's
spoken at such diverse venues as the San
Diego Museum of Man, the Sleuthfest Mystery
Author Conference in Fort Lauderdale,
Florida, the University of San Diego, and the
Malice Domestic mystery conference. His
"Homicide 101" lecture gets rave reviews.
