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.

Product Description


It started out as a kidnap, turned into a brutal murder and ended up as a plot to assassinate the American State Secretary...DCI Henry Christie, taken off an anonymous murder case and transferred into a dead-end desk job, leaps at the chance to investigate the brutal killing of an ex-cop turned sleazy private eye. At first Christie thinks he will have no trouble identifying the killer, but as he investigates, he stumbles into a plot by Muslim extremists and finds himself plunged into the world of international terrorism. Christie faces his toughest challenge yet as he tries to head off one of the world's most ruthless assassins who has never yet been caught - and who has never yet missed a target. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Do I detect a sharper edge? 28 Sep 2007
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars The life and times of Mr. Christie 5 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 23 Jun 2013
By Brian X
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Sorry Nick this is a bit far fetched even for you. Blackpool had already moved into 5th place in the 'most dangerous city in the world' list' but now it surpasses Beirut and Moscow and has moved into third.
