I write crime thrillers, and have done since 1996, about the same time I became a CSI here in Yorkshire. All of my books are set in or around our biggest city of Leeds. Sometimes I go wandering into the countryside and drag its beauty screaming into the pages of one of my books where it collides with the ugliness of death.

I don’t write formulaic crime fiction; each one is hand-crafted and home-grown to give you a unique flavour of what CSIs encounter in real life. Every book is rich with forensic insight but that insight never drowns the story; it’s there to enhance your enjoyment only.

My thrillers live inside the police domain; they have detectives and uniformed officers, but they’re predominantly about CSIs (or SOCOs as we used to be known). Come and live with them as they go about their sometimes unenviable tasks, and listen to the language they speak, see the things they see, and experience the emotions they feel.

So pull on your nitrile gloves and your face mask, get comfy, and read on.

Ebooks and paperbacks are available from Amazon, and ebooks only from Apple (iBooks), Barnes & Noble (Nook), and Kobo.

  1. Hey Andrew,
    I just finished “A Long Time Dead”. I enjoyed it very much, was really surprised at the end, did not expect that ending. I also left a comment on Amazon.
    Thanks much!!!

    1. Hi Barb,
      It’s great to see you over here – thank you for popping in.
      I’m delighted by your review, and very pleased you didn’t see that ending coming. A Long Time Dead is 20 years old; it was the first crime book I ever wrote. I might have to devise a birthday present for the ‘old gal’ soon.
      Don’t be a stranger, pop on here agian soon.
      Take care,

  2. Hi Andrew,
    Just downloaded Ledston Luck from Amazon and looking forward to reading it as I only live a short walk from Ledston Luck in KIPPAX. I saw you in the local magazine ” Kippax Matters” so thought I would give you a try as I am always looking for new crime writers and it’s good to find some one who writes in an area you are familiar with. I used to like Stuart Pawsons books he lives at Fairburn.

    1. Hi Jacky,
      Someone I know from the village sent me a picture of that bio from Kippax Matters. I’m really flattered by it. It’s a constant surprise to me how many people who live near Ledston Luck have got in touch with me; and it’s a great feeling! It’s amazing to see how many books Stuart Pawson has out, isn’t it? And also amazing is how many authors live in this neck of the woods!
      I really hope you enjoy Ledston Luck, and if you have the time, I’d love to hear how you get along with it. If you’d like to see what the earlier books are like, why not sign up to my Reader’s Club and get yourself A Long Time Dead, The Third Rule, and a CSI Eddie Collins short story, The Lift, for free? Just fill out the short form on the front page of the site, and I’ll see you on the other side.
      Take care,
