David Steven Rappoport writes mystery novels. His books are humorous and witty, featuring eccentric characters, outrageous but intriguing plots, obsessive word play, and pointed social satire.

 
"Witty, sardonic and fast-paced, Husbands and Lap Dogs Breathe Their Last sends an engagingly eccentric sleuth chasing down a tangled skein of clues that reach from rural Maine to Chicago's occult scene and back again. Highly recommended."

- John Michael Greer, author of The New Encyclopedia of the Occult and editor of The Golden Dawn
