The Present

I live with my partner, Jacqueline, a highly decorated retired police officer, and our four Springer Spaniels, here in the misty Fens, where the airy beauty of the marshlands lends itself beautifully to murder!


I am a Member of the Crime Writer’s Association, and have had over 2.2 million sales and 589 million pages read on Kindle Unlimited (equivalent to around another 2.2 million sales), 6 Kindle # 1 bestsellers, and in 2018 was awarded Audible’s Breakthough Crime Writer of the Year Award, and also shortlisted for Audiobook of the Year at the British Book Awards.

2020 brought a Nomination for a Nibbie, for Author of the Year, and a #1 in the Bookseller with The Patient Man, and a #2 for The Dying Light. The latest audio to be released as an exclusive with Audible, They Disappeared was the Times Audiobook of the Week (15th August 2020) and called ‘a perfect combination.’
