About Pascal Marco

Pascal Marco was born and raised on the far South Side of Chicago. He graduated from the University of Illinois Chicago with both B.A. and M.A. degrees in Media and Communications. An Arizonan for almost twenty-five years, his novel Render Safe (SAN TAN PRESS, ISBN: 978-0-6927-50308) is a follow-up work to his award-winning, best-seller debut Identity: Lost (OCEANVIEW PUBLISHING, ISBN: 978-1-60809-0860).

NY Times #1 best-selling author Brad Thor says this about Identity: Lost, “Pascal Marco's electrifying debut puts him firmly in the hunt to succeed John Grisham. Fresh, compelling and incredibly intricate, Identity: Lost is 'Exhibit A' on the docket of this year's hottest legal thrillers.”

As for Render Safe, Gayle Lynds, New York Times best-selling author, had this to say, “In a sprawling tale of the Southwest, Render Safe hurls Phoenix prosecutor Stan Kobe into a cauldron of violence, lies, and prejudices. . . A wonderful book from a new author whose writing I admire a lot.”
