About the Author:

A former TV producer, and for past five years full-time writer.

Review:

'The 50s atmosphere is acutely reproduced by John Lawton, and there is a ripe stench of corruption all around as lucrative post-war redevelopment gets under way...Classy stuff.' -- Matthew Lewin GUARDIAN (23.4.05) 'John Lawton has created, in Freddie Troy one of the most intriguing detectives in modern crime fiction...Lawton's writing is hypnotic...he deserves to be ranked with the best.' -- Mike Ripley BIRMINGHAM POST (30.4.05) 'The period atmosphere, illustrated with credible characters, is impeccable and the writing elegantly precise.' -- Susanna Yager TELEGRAPH '[this] book has a pace and a flavour that is racy, rakish and addictive.' LITERARY REVIEW (June 2005) 'Lawton's fiction is clearly comparable to Jake Arnott's, both in the period it covers and in reworking the stories of real people. The difference is that whereas Arnott earnestly attempts a counter-history of the post-war decades, Lawton seems more intent on having fun with them through a kind of fantastic reinvention.' -- John Dugdale SUNDAY TIMES (29.5.05) 'It's a sprightly, captivating mix, stylishly written...This guy is seriously good.' www.twbooks.co.uk
