VJ Books Presents Author Martin Smith Cruz!

Author Martin Cruz SmithMartin Cruz Smith was born Martin William Smith, but changed his middle name to his grandmother's surname, Cruz. Smith is the son of a white jazz musician and a Pueblo Indian jazz singer.

One thing that sets Smith's work apart from other thrillers is the breadth and depth of his research. Before writing Gorky Park, the author visited Moscow, befriended exiled Russians and read scores of Russian newspapers and magazines in translation. For Rose, he spent weeks in Lancashire talking with miners and visiting mines.

Smith is a two-time winner of the Hammett Prize from the International Association of Crime Writers. Smith lives in California.
