I have published 12 novels, including the crime novels Small Crimes and Pariah, both of which were selected by The Washington Post as best books of the year, and the horror novel, The Caretaker of Lorne Field, which the American Library Association short listed as one of the 4 best horror novels of 2010. I have also had dozens of short stories published, including the award-winning Julius Katz mystery stories which have appeared in Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine.
I have written three novellas in my ultra hardboiled Hunted series. These novellas combine government conspiracy with action-packed crime heists. The first two novellas in this series, The Hunted and The Dame have already been published as kindle books.The 3rd, The Interloper, is unpublished and is roughly 130 pages long (45k words) and wraps up these first two novellas nicely. I'm looking to publish all three of these within one volume as a 270 page book, both as a paperback and as a downloadable ebook.
Praise for THE HUNTED and THE DAME
"dark tour-de-force of non-stop action and tension" Vincent Zandri, bestselling author of The Remains and The Innocent
"a swiftly paced story that rewards with tension, suspense, and surprise." Bill Crider, author of the Dan Rhodes mystery series
"Stark meets Ludlum meets Forsyth in this tight and tricky opener to a new novella series from the always-innovative Dave Zeltserman." Roger Smith, author of Wake Up Dead and Dust Devils
"The Hunted rockets along, never boring for a second ... The Dame reads like a Reader’s Digest Condensed Parker, with all of the elements that we know and love crammed into a scant 70 pages" The Violent World of Parker
"Everything Dave Zeltserman writes is gold, and his new Hunted series is no exception." Evan Lewis, author of the Skylar Hobbs mystery stories
The writing has already been done. I'm looking to raise funds to pay for the cover art, copy-editing and book production. If you've enjoyed any of my crime novels, you'll like The Interloper. If you like twisty hardboiled crime fiction that's loaded with surprises, you'll dig The Interloper.

Risks and challenges
Since I've written The Interloper and have gotten prices for the cover art, copy-editing and book production, there is no risk for this project assuming that the funding is reached.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
