About the Author

John Dufresne lives in Dania Beach, Florida.


A novel so good you want to throw a party for it. It's tense, unnerving, fearless and funny as hell -- Dennis Lehane
Genuinely funny, genuinely suspenseful ... Dufresne's hilariously dark vision of South Florida brings to mind the work of such masters as Donald Westlake and Elmore Leonard -- Tom Perrotta
No Regrets, Coyote is an extraordinary crime novel. Steeped in place, wholly original, it is, line by line, one of the best books I've read in a long time. -- Laura Lippman
Touching, nervy, richly detailed and populated with a cast of characters who are utterly unique and terrifyingly real, including a detective hero unlike any we've ever met. American crime fiction has just gotten a lot more interesting. -- James W. Hall
The total package - beautifully written, filled with unexpected twists, driven by crisp and edgy dialogue. Nelson DeMille meets Carl Hiaasen, and the result (like the ending) is totally satisfying. -- James Grippando
Here, American treasure John Dufresne has written a noir, but instead of playing by the rules of noir, he makes noir play by the Rules of Dufresne. And we are the beneficiaries. So sit back, put a cooler of beer by your chair and settle in, you'll be here awhile. No Regrets, Coyote is impossible to close. -- Tom Franklin
No Regrets, Coyote takes noir fiction and slivers it with shards of humour, ironic insight and an almost hallucinogenic specificity. This is lean and honest storytelling that is as moving as it is engaging. Read this book. Believe me, you'll have no regrets! -- Andre Dubus III
John Dufresne has created a unique and compelling sleuth in Wylie 'Coyote' Melville. His quirky adventures will keep you reading. -- James O. Born
A very cool ride. If Raymond Chandler was reincarnated as a novelist in South Florida, he couldn't nail it any better than John Dufresne. -- Carl Hiaasen
Violent and very funny * The Sun *
[A] hip-lit star ... Tantalising and eccentric -- Charlie Burton * GQ *
An engaging romp ... an engrossing tale * Press Association *
Dufresne has a gift for tragi-comic situations, eccentric characters and superb dialogue ... Clever and fun. -- Marcel Berlins * The Times *
Very well written. Dufresne is clearly a talented wordsmith. The style is interesting, smart, sassy and eccentric ... Intriguing and captivating .... The dialogue is sharp and snappy. Characters are strong and well drawn. * Crime Fiction Lover *
Deliciously funny ... gruesome and bloody ... taught and tense ... There must surely be a series of novels on Wylie 'Coyote' Melville. Wylie is too good a character to restrict to a standalone. * Crimesquad *
Sharp observations and wry humour ... this wonderful, off-beat novel is bold, funny, and extremely enjoyable. -- Laura Wilson * Guardian *
A grisly story of police corruption, organised crime and a state with far too many psychopaths in positions of power * Irish Times *
