Van Argan's mysteries and thrillers, in fascinating settings rich with symbolism, are layered with intrigue and compelling characters.
"Lurking On The Precipice," Argan's newest book, is now available in ebook and paperback formats. It features amateur sleuth Pari Malik solving a series of complex disappearances and attacks in the rugged mountains and sandstone canyons of the desert southwest. It is the follow-up to "Lurking on the Tightrope: Mystery at Diamond Head," which was Argan's debut mystery and psychological thriller.
In addition to writing, Van Argan has worked for animal rescue and animal protection in local, regional, national, and international nonprofit organizations for more than two decades. These efforts have been headquartered on both the East Coast and the West Coast of the United States. Argan, a graduate of journalism school and law school, currently resides in the southwest United States.
