His fourth novel, Do They Know I’m Running?, appears in March 2010, and has already earned received generous praise, including this from John Lescroart:

This is not just a thriller, but an elegant novel, full of heart, soul, music, food, cruelty, betrayal, poverty and love. The line runs through Ernest Hemingway and Graham Greene, straight on to David Corbett. I’m not kidding. He’s that good.

David’s short fiction has appeared in numerous anthologies, including San Francisco Noir and Phoenix Noir, and his story "Pretty Little Parasite" (from Las Vegas Noir) was selected for inclusion in Best American Mystery Stories 2009.

David has also contributed a chapter to the world’s first serial audio thriller, The Chopin Manuscript—which won an Audie Award for Best Audio Book of 2008—and to its follow-up, The Copper Bracelet.
