Back in 2003, Ralph Pezzullo self-published Eve Missing.
It featured a disgraced, washed-up NYPD cop, SMOKEY ANNICELLI. He was a man with a troubled past and a not-so-great present, who's hired to track down a high-class fashion model with a plenty of problems of her own.
It received some good press, and we even ran a favourable review of it on this site.
But it didn't exactly set the world on fire. Still, Pezzullo, a man who we were told wears "many different literary hats" and is "quite a character in person and on the page,"has persevered. He has since become a New York Times best-selling author, award-winning screenwriter, playwright, and poet. His books include Jawbreaker (with CIA operative Gary Berntsen), Inside SEAL Team Six (with SEAL assault leader Don Mann), The Chopin Manuscript (winner of the 2008 Audio Book of the Year), and Plunging Into Haiti (winner of the 2006 Douglas Dillon Prize for American Diplomacy). His screen adaptation of Jim Thompson's Recoil is scheduled to begin shooting at the end of 2012 with James Foley directing, and in May 2012, a long-time-coming sequel to Eve Missing entitled Blood of My Blood, was published.
