Russell Andrews is a pseudonym for the team of
Peter Gethers and David Handler.

Peter Gethers has written two previous novels, The Dandy and Getting Blue, and two bestselling nonfiction books, The Cat Who Went to Paris and A Cat Abroad, and is the coauthor of an annual, Rotisserie League Baseball, and Historical Cats. In addition, he is an editor and publisher and, with David Handler, has written numerous film scripts and television shows. Mr. Gethers lives in New York City and Sag Harbor, New York. This is the first collaboration between Mr. Gethers and Mr. Handler under the name "Russell Andrews."

David Handler began his career as a journalist and critic. He won widespread critical acclaim for his autobiographical first novel, Kiddo, and has gone on to win an Edgar and an American Mystery Award for his series of eight novels featuring the dapper amateur sleuth Stewart Hoag--a hero who, in the words of the Detroit Free Press, combines "the panache of James Bond, the in-your-face attitude of Sean Penn, and the lethal wit of Gore Vidal." Mr. Handler has written many television and film scripts with his longtime partner, Peter Gethers. He makes his home in a two-hundred-year-old carriage house in Old Lyme, Connecticut.
