More About the Author
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.

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.
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!

A great read, although I do prefer Martin O'Brien's series of books about Jacquot. This one was quite different and set in America as opposed to France.Published 5 days ago by Amazon Customer
Nicely drawn characters and interesting story line but as with some of the excellent Jacquot books, the ending somehow anticlimacticPublished 5 months ago by Woj
Not as good as Jacqout series. Cully Mortimer, the narrator, occasionally has American speech patterns that I found grated a little. also less of a coherent plot, more episodic.Published 10 months ago by Julia from Shaftesbury
I would not recommend this book to anyone, It really was not worth reading and that is all I will say about itPublished on 16 Jan. 2014 by F. Whitham
