From the Author:

First of all, I have to thank Joe Konrath and Barry Eisler for the inspiration to put my past books on Amazon through Kindle. I have had enormous support and encouragement from readers in the USA over the years that books such as Past Imperfect and Ascension Day should be more widely available to a US audience.

Past Imperfect became something of a landmark bestseller in Europe, selling over 500,000 copies and in 2004 was included in a list of top ten all-time best legal thrillers in The Times (London). Notably, it was one of only two books by British authors in that list - the rest were all American. Stylistically, think in terms of John Grisham meets Stephen King - IOW, a legal/crime thriller with a difference.

I have also taken Joe Konrath's advice in pricing competitively with all my books - so this gives US readers the opportunity of reading quality crime thrillers with a rich pedigree at a fraction of the normal retail price. It also gives British readers the opportunity of reading the same works on Kindle for the first time. Enjoy.
