“A gem of a book...There are no dramatic turns or big twists because the book doesn't need them. The sheer talent that went into the writing of the story, the emotions the author makes you feel, is enough. ” ~ Joyful Antidotes

“The Best of Crimes is a unique, intriguing, beautifully written tale by Maher that sensitively explores the ethical and moral fine line between right and wrong. And does an exceptional job of posing the question: Does intention make someone guilty of a crime even if a crime is not actually committed?” ~ What's Better Than Books?
K.C. MAHER grew up outside of Chicago and has been writing fiction all her adult life. Early on, she wrote short stories that were published in literary magazines such as Ascent, Black Warrior Review, and Confrontation. She also contributed flash fictions regularly to a UK 'zine, The View From Here. Only recently has she noticed that her imagination runs to, and cultivates, the exception to the rule. Her husband, however, has always known this, as have lawyers considering her for jury duty. The Best of Crimes is her debut novel. She is mother to two children and lives in New York City.
