Adrian Magson is the author of hundreds of short stories and 29 books and an acclaimed expert in creating fictional characters. In his crime-thriller series we meet private detectives partners Ruth Gonzales and Andy Vaslik; deep cover specialist, Marc Portman; spy Harry Tate; French 1960s crime fighter Lucas Rocco, and others. He is so prolific that he has not one, but two most recently published books, Death at the Old Asylum in which Inspector Rocco becomes enveloped in a case of cold-blooded execution and Killing Waters, a stand-alone murder investigation set on the Oxford Canal in the Midlands.
Adrian’s work has been praised for its strong female characters, realism, intrigue, grit and fast pace.
