Criminal lawyer turned crime writer MICHAEL SLADE has acted in over 100 murder cases. Specializing in the law of insanity, he argued the last death penalty case in Canada’s highest court, and has written 14 Mountie Noir novels about the Special X psycho-hunters of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
HEADHUNTER – his first Special X thriller – will be filmed as an 8-part TV show by the producer of CAPOTE and “Motive”.
“The History of Michael Slade and HEADHUNTER Reimagined”: http://www.specialx.net/specialxdotnet/bio.html
“HEADHUNTER Reimagined … like it wasn’t freak-out-scary enough the first time! All I can say is that Michael Slade’s brain is getting twistier with time — and Crime doesn’t come any darker than Slade’s Mountie Noir.” – Diana Gabaldon, author of OUTLANDER
“HEADHUNTER stunned me! It’s really good!” – Alice Cooper
“A real chiller!” – Robert Bloch, author of PSYCHO
“As a young cop walking Vancouver’s Skid Road beat, HEADHUNTER enthralled me with its hardboiled realism and noir horror. Now, a third of a century later, the reimagined story is no less exciting or frightening. The dark shadows in a Michael Slade novel make you want to keep your back against the alley wall.” – Detective Inspector Kim Rossmo (VPD ret.), inventor of Geographic Profiling and ongoing international psycho-hunter
“Crime writer Michael Slade is the real deal! As a trial lawyer, Slade knows psycho killers, sex predators, and their horrific crimes inside out. As a Mountie, I worked sex crimes and led a team of ViCLAS psycho-hunters for 7 years. If reading Slade makes you react, ‘Wow! Serial killers don’t really do that to people, do they?’, I can tell you, yes, they do.” – RCMP Staff Sergeant Christine Wozney (ret.), CO of the Violent Crime Linkage Analysis team (West Coast)
