More About the Author

Born in South Devon, educated at The Oratory School, and at Hertford College, Oxford, Martin O'Brien lasted five days as a graduate trainee with an American investment bank before leaving the City to pursue a career as a writer and journalist.

Following a raft of would-be writer's jobs (short-order griddle-chef, waiter, cocktail barman, removals and demolition man), Martin joined Condé Nast Publications as a copy-sub and later became Travel Editor at British Vogue, a position he held for a number of years.

After leaving Vogue, he wrote a book about hookers and whorehouses around the world ("A classic among travel books" - Auberon Waugh, Books & Bookmen), and freelanced as a travel and life-style writer for a number of international magazines.

When marriage and fatherhood put an end to his travelling days, Martin settled down to write the Daniel Jacquot detective series ("Rich, spicy, and served up with unmistakeable relish" - The Literary Review), and straight-to-paperback thrillers under the name Jack Drummond ("Big, high-pitched disaster novels don't come much more thrilling than this" - The Daily Mirror).

Martin's books have been translated into French, Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch, German, Russian, Turkish, and Hebrew. He also writes stand-alone e-books, the first of which, Lunching The Girls, is now available for download.

His latest book, Knife Gun Poison Bomb, is Jacquot's eighth outing, and a first-draft follow-up - Talking To The Sharks - is nearing completion.

After more than thirty years on the road, Martin lives in the Cotswolds with his wife, two daughters, and a spaniel.

I personally am a fan of Martin O'Brien's books having read all of the Jacquot detective series which are set in Provence.

In Lunching the Girls, we are transported to New York and testament to this writer's skills find, feel, and smell the city in as vivid and different detail as Marseilles for Inspector Jacquot.

Very very good read, very different but just as exciting with a plot that twists and turns and leaves you guessing (wrongly) who the murderer is until the last chapter. Good food, restaurants, characters and sex from a book that you can as easily read on the beach as in bed.

I have to say I approached Lunching The Girls in a rather negative frame of mind, but having read all the Jacquot books I was desperate for something, anything, more to read from the pen of Martin Obrien. In fact 'Lunching' is entirely different but superb. Highly original loads of atmosphere and well drawn characters.

And, just when I was starting to forgive OBrien for killing off Marie-Ange he gives us the captivating Roo. Just read what happens - you won't be disappointed!

Just when the beginning of this story was getting a little long the book completely took off like a rocket and I couldn't' put it down, I don't want to give anything away so just read it.... And have you read the Jacquot books by the same author?? if not you are in for another treat...

I love the Jacquot books and thought I'd try something different. O'Brien is a highly engaging writer, but this one failed to keep my attention this time round. Perhaps when I pick it up to try again I'll wonder why I didn't care for it the first time around.

A wee bit dated in attitude and writing style.
