“The core message in all my novels is that today justice
is not being served. The Phoenix believes criminals should pay for their crimes; the current system fails to deliver the correct punishment. Olympus agents help him redress the balance. Life is all about balance, isn’t it? Good and evil, love and loss, laughter and tears.”

"In my new series, (#1 due Dec 19) former DI Gus Freeman comes out of retirement to tackle six cold cases that continue to baffle detectives. Can this old-school copper succeed where so many others have failed?"

“I think of myself as a storyteller; with each successive book, I hope I get better at it. What I’ve been told is that the reader feels as if we’re sat across the table from one another, and I’m chatting with them. There’s always a rich vein of material for me to include in my books from news headlines. There are more stories left to tell.”
