October 19, Copley Square
Joanna Schaffhausen has a doctorate in psychology, which reflects her long-standing interest in the brain―how it develops and the many ways it can go wrong. No Mercy is her second novel featuring police officer Ellery Hathaway and FBI agent Reed Markham. Her debut, The Vanishing Season, won the Mystery Writers of America/St. Martin’s Minotaur First Crime Novel Award. She lives in the Boston area with her family and a boisterous basset hound puppy named Winston.
