I'm based in Hitchin in Hertfordshire in the UK, although I'm originally from the north east. When I'm not writing the series (which largely involves lots of late nights and candles) I run a hosiery retail company and - when opportunity permits - indulge in a bit of screen acting.

This book hooked me after the second or third page and couldn't put it down. I look forward to reading all of your work with enthusiasm. Brilliant and thank you.
Without doubt the best book I have read for a long time. Over the past couple of years I have read around 80 novels, you could say I am an avid reader. This book is well written, well constructed, the characters stand out from the page, there is nothing more I can add. I look forward to reading the full series. To other devotees of thriller fiction, all I can say is READ THIS BOOK.
The first novel I have read by David Bradwell and I am hooked. I loved the two leads and especially the witty and humorous edge to the character of Anna. I am sure she will carve her own niche in the tradition of famed amateur sleuths such as Miss Marple and will help to establish David as one of Britain's best loved authors.
A super read. Could not put the story down. I read the story over two days while on holiday. The event s were so believable it was frightening to believe such things could happen. Well written, well done.
One of the best I've read. Great story line, twisting plot, the end definitely a suprise (was not expecting that). Well worth the read you won't be disappointed. Can't wait to get the sequels.
Fast and furious with lots of twists and turns. Well written and extremely tense in more ways than one. Brilliant.
Loved the twists and turns in this story which kept me guessing all the time. Well written, fast paced and also quite funny, it was a great read that was hard to put down.
I don't normally leave reviews, but felt this book deserved it. Twists, turns and an easy but hard to put down read. The next book is a must for me.
... and hundreds more!
