About the Author:

Patrick Easter was a police officer in the Met for thirty years and for part of that time served on the Marine Police force. On retirement, he became a journalist writing both for technical journals and the national press. The River of Fire is his second novel and follows his acclaimed debut, The Watermen. He lives in East Sussex.

Review:

'Patrick Easter [...] brought alive the alleys, dives, waterways and dank doings of the Port of London in its swarthy prime at the tail-end of the 18th century' Wharf. * Wharf * 'evok[es] the sights and smells of the river and its grubby residents, which brings the story alive in a manner that has you turning pages in quick succession' Newham Recorder. * Newham Recorder * 'Easter has chosen his setting wisely, creating what I think may be a new sub-genre - naval-historical-crime - and he should find a readership in all three camps ' Eurocrime. * Eurocrime * 'An immensely enjoyable series for fans of historical fiction and crime novels alike' Guardian. * Guardian *
