J. Sydney Jones is an American author of fiction and non-fiction. Born in the United States, he studied abroad in Vienna in 1968, and later returned to Austria to live for nearly two decades. He began writing travel books in the late ‘70s, many of which concern central Europe, and published his first thriller, Time Of The Wolf in 1990. In 2008, Jones published The Empty Mirror, a mystery set in 19th century Vienna that would become the first of several books in the Viennese Mystery series. His most recent novel is Ruin Value, a mystery of the Third Reich—as Europe prepares for the Nuremberg trials, a killer stalks a broken city!
