David writes action crime thrillers where the emphasis is on action and thrills. He spent twenty years working as a firefighter and draws on this experience when writing some of the action scenes. He also worked as a ‘door supervisor’ in Manchester, encountering a variety of colourful characters.

David found a publisher for, Brotherhood, the first in the Mason & Sterling series, in 2014. A highlight of his writing career so far was when crime fiction blog, Crime Thriller Hound, featured him alongside James Lee Burke, a long time writing hero. They also gave him a pretty good revue – he assures me this wasn’t written in early January.

Crime Thriller Hound (http://www.crimethrillerhound.co.uk/brotherhood): A powerful and violent first chapter precedes a superb opening 100 pages, the best I’ve read this year. And the pace never lets up in this cat and mouse thriller, evocatively set amid Manchester’s threatening underworld.

Sapere Books will release a re-edited version in February 2019
