About Doug

DOUGLAS CORLEONE is the author of contemporary crime novels and international thrillers.  His debut novel ONE MAN’S PARADISE was a finalist for the 2010 Shamus Award for Best First Novel and won the 2009 Minotaur Books / Mystery Writers of America First Crime Novel Award.

Doug’s highly acclaimed international thriller GOOD AS GONE, introducing former U.S. Marshal Simon Fisk, was hailed by the Huffington Post as “a heart-wrenching, adrenaline-producing adventure that leaves the reader gasping for breath.”

Praised by Booklist as “a lean, mean, pedal-to-the-metal thriller,” the second book in the Simon Fisk series – PAYOFF – is now available in bookstores everywhere. The third book, in which a newly determined Simon Fisk hunts his daughter’s abductors after 12 years, is titled GONE COLD and will be released on August 18, 2015.

Recently, Doug was selected by the Estate of Robert Ludlum, international bestselling author and creator of the Jason Bourne series, to continue Ludlum’s series of thrillers featuring ex-Navy SEAL and former covert government agent Paul Janson. ROBERT LUDLUM’S THE JANSON EQUATION, the fourth book in the bestselling series, will hit stores on June 2, 2015.

A former New York City criminal defense attorney, Doug now resides in the Hawaiian Islands, where he is currently at work on his next novel.
