"I grew up in the creative cauldron of nineties Manchester when Madchester rocked the charts and the Hacienda ruled clubland. The city has shaped me as a writer. My name's Phil Martin and I'm a proud Mancunian. I write thrillers and crime stories based on the fine folk of Manchester and Salford and sell them online as ebooks. The Little Girl Lost trilogy is an international thriller taking in Manchester, London, Morocco, Barcelona, Monza, Zurich, Lake Como, Moscow, Chechnya, Buenos Aires, Georgia... and Milton Keynes."
