Profile Information

Hometown:
Manchester
About Me:
I am the author of three crime novels set in contemporary Mongolia, The Shadow Walker, The Adversary and The Outcast, published by Quercus in the UK (due out on Kindle in May 2012). The first two books are also published by Berkley in the US. My new non-Mongolian novel, 'Trust No One', was published by Avon/Haper-Collins in September 2011 (as Alex Walters, my mysterious alter-ego), with a follow-up, 'Nowhere to Hide' due in October 2012. When I'm not writing, I work in a field which has nothing to do with fiction but does give me some interesting insights... I live just outside Manchester in the UK with three sons.

Books And Authors I Like:
Probably too many too list and it changes all the time, but here goes... In the crime world, I like Reginald Hill, John Harvey, Peter Temple, Jo Nesbo, Phil Rickman, John Connolly and countless others. Outside crime, my tastes range from Thomas Pynchon to Stanley Middleton, which must be about as far as fiction can range.
Movies And TV Shows I Like:
My favourite movies are probably 'Night of the Hunter' and 'Chinatown', and I'm also a massive fan of the British director Shane Meadows - especially 'Dead Man's Shoes' which is the best British film of the last decade.

Hi Eric - thanks for the note. I must have a look for your books as well...looks interesting.

Hey, welcome. Great to see another writer who sets books in Asia here. I'll have to find yours. Mongolia is one of the few countries in the region that I never got a chance to work in when I was a journalist there.

Hi Jack - fascinating stuff on your page, and a lot of your comments resonate with me. I've just checked and 'Dead Man's Shoes' is available on DVD in the US. I think it's terrific - scary, funny, moving, and it brilliantly captures a slice of English low-life that's a million miles away from all that Guy Ritchie gangster nonsense. My only warning is that I noticed that some of the US reviewers on Amazon struggled with the English regional accents. But I guess that would just mean you'd have to watch it more than once...

Thanks, Karen (and thanks for your review on AustCrime) - glad you enjoyed it. I'm just working on the final edits for the next one now, so all set for November.

Hi Michael - great news that there is another book on the way - I've really enjoyed The Adversary as well :)

Thanks, Emily...good to hear from you. Yes - Tunjin's back in THE OUTCAST. Not quite so centre-stage, but then he's tends to dominate the stage wherever he sits...

Mike
