Thomas Mogford has worked as a journalist for 'Time Out' and a translator for the European Parliament. Whilst studying to be a lawyer, he looked into practising abroad. Instead, he decided to write a series of thrillers set in the Mediterranean. "Shadow of the Rock" introduces Spike Sanguinetti, a lawyer from Gibraltar willing to risk everything to protect his client. It was shortlisted for the 2013 CWA New Blood Dagger Award. Both the sequel, "Sign of the Cross", and follow-up, "Hollow Mountain", were shortlisted for Crimefest’s eDunnit award (in 2014 and 2015), while the fourth book, "Sleeping Dogs", was one of the Guardian‘s ‘Best Holiday Reads’. The fifth Spike Sanguinetti book, "A Thousand Cuts" (2017), was hailed by The Sunday Times as 'a traditional and thoroughly satisfying crime novel'. Thomas Mogford lives with his family in London.
