His short fiction has appeared in the Best of the West 2009 anthology, the Southern Review, and other journals. He has degrees from the University of Washington, Western Washington University, and Emerson College. He lives in Seattle with his wife.
I discovered author Urban Waite with his debut novel The Terror of Living which is a compelling read. The Carrion Birds is a dark journey to dying town. Set is a dusty New Mexico border town that is losing its economic base - the oil industry. What fills the gap of course is drug money. Cartel drug money that brings its violence with it . A good story filled with interesting characters and a vengeance filled plot.
I recommend this contemporary thriller by Urban Waite.
