Most of his service was spent in uniform, but the final ten years were spent as a trainer and a manager in police training. He retired in 2005 at the rank of inspector.
He lives with his partner, Belinda, on the outskirts of Preston.
Nick is the author of the popular 'Henry Christie' series of books.

Product Description

Review

"Deviously twisted plotting, genuine suspense, and an engaging, emotionally complex character, the result is a book - and indeed a series - that's a gripping, hugely entertaining success." Booklist on Critical Threat "Oldham takes the taut pacing, gripping suspense, and hard-edged plotting that readers have come to expect from the best British procedurals and adds a fresh twist. A touch of James Ellroy thrown into a John Harvey-style procedural makes a powerful combination" Booklist on Psycho Alley "Oldham, a real-life copper, offers a story full of dark menace, gritty realism, and graphic violence. Add head-spinning action and surprising plot twists, and the result is a gripping, gut-wrenching thriller" Booklist on Big City Jacks"

I have now read all of the Christie series. I feel this one is probably one of the best. Only one real external, (to the police) character re-appears, and he is not the usual informant.
At some stages I wondered if the book contained an element of collaboration? However I was pleased to read aspects of actions and feelings that only a detective, who has experienced them, could really relate.
Only one aspect in the latter stages, had me wondering if Christie, really would have sought to have safeguarded the rights of one in the intersts of many? to say more would spoil it for the potential reader.
Could not really put down. Crisp and to the point, the story moves at great pace without missing important aspects of policing.Every page is of interest. How he has merged to story lines is very good.
Hope there are more to come!

You can't help but both like and sympathise with Mr. Christie. Inately moral (except where members of the opposite sex are concerned of course).

The author takes his readers on a great and amusing journey of crime drama. His knowledge of Lancashire and Greater Manchester towns helps in scene setting and placing the reader 'there' so to speak.

I look forward to the next e book publication
