Anthony Franze

“THE OUTSIDER is as authentic and suspenseful as any John Grisham novel—and I like Grisham a lot,” raves James Patterson about the new novel by Anthony Franze, published by Minotaur in 2017. The Providence Journal declares “it realizes every bit of its considerable ambition,” and the Associated Press calls it “satisfying and winning.”

Franze’s previous novel, THE ADVOCATE’S DAUGHTER has been hailed by bestselling suspense novelists as “smart, sophisticated, suspenseful” (Lee Child) and “taut and twisting . . . a sensitive meditation on family and the price of secrets we keep from each other” (Lisa Unger).

Anthony has garnered national praise for his work as a lawyer in the Appellate and Supreme Court practice of a major Washington D.C. law firm. The New York Times, Washington Post, and other prominent news outlets have quoted or cited Anthony concerning the Supreme Court, and he has been a commentator on high-court issues for The New Republic, Bloomberg, and National Law Journal. He lives in the Washington D.C. area with his family.
