Rick Mofina is a celebrated author known for his crime fiction and suspense thrillers. He began his writing journey in Belleville, Ontario, where he penned short stories during his school years. At the age of 15, he sold his first short story, setting him on a path to becoming one of today’s leading writers. Mofina frequently appears as a panelist at mystery conferences across Canada and the United States, drawing on his membership in organizations such as the International Thriller Writers, the Crime Writers’ Association, the Crime Writers of Canada, and the Mystery Writers of America.

Mofina’s early life was spent in Ontario, east of Toronto. His promising career was hinted at when he wrote a novel about a hitchhiking experience to California. Throughout his youth, he worked various jobs, including at a horse race track and delivering cars from Florida. He later studied American Detective fiction, English Literature, and journalism at Carleton University.

While at university, Mofina spent summers working as a rookie reporter at the Toronto Star. His journalism career saw him working in several newsrooms, including the Calgary Herald, Southern News Wire Service, and The Ottawa Citizen. His reporting brought him face-to-face with some of the most dangerous criminals in the US and Canada, covering serial killings in California, police murders in Alberta, a Las Vegas armored car heist, and patrolling with The Royal Canadian Mounted Police. His experiences reporting from Africa, the Middle East, and the Caribbean have also shaped his writing.

One of Mofina’s notable series features the character Jason Wade, who appears in three novels. His other well-known works include “If Angels Fall” (2000), “Cold Fear” (2001), “Blood of Others” (2003), and “No Way Back” (2003). Mofina has also made several television appearances, such as on “True Pulp Murder,” a documentary series about crime investigations. His insights into crime have been widely sought after by investigators.

The Dying Hour

“The Dying Hour” introduces Rick Mofina’s main character in a series of three novels. Jason Wade is a rookie crime reporter at The Seattle Mirror. In this award-winning novel, Mofina sets readers on a suspenseful journey following Wade, who grew up in a blue-collar neighborhood and dreams of securing a full-time job at the paper. Despite his limited college education and the stiff competition, Wade’s determination drives him.

Wade is haunted by his past and is drawn to a story about Karen Harding, whose car was found abandoned on the Pacific Northwest highway. He delves into the mystery of her disappearance, uncovering secrets he never imagined. His relentless pursuit of the truth puts him on a perilous path, jeopardizing his career and confronting his worst nightmares. This riveting story keeps readers on the edge of their seats, showcasing Mofina’s talent for crafting compelling crime fiction and suspense thrillers.

Every Fear

In this gripping sequel, Mofina introduces Maria Colson, a mother who faces her worst fears when her son Dylan is abducted. While at a corner store, Maria momentarily looks away, only to see her son being taken into a van. In a desperate attempt to save him, she jumps into the van but is violently thrown out. Maria is left fighting for her life, while the van vanishes without a trace. The entire state of Washington, including the FBI and local police, launches a massive search for Dylan.

Jason Wade, under pressure to find a big story, becomes captivated by the Colson case. Despite the couple’s ordinary life with no apparent enemies, Jason is determined to uncover the truth. His investigation, aided by his father, a former detective, reveals chilling connections and a case of cold-blooded revenge. As time runs out, Jason must piece together the puzzle and expose the conspiracy to save Dylan before it’s too late.
