The Crime Writers' Association

Simon Michael

Sub-genre: , , , , , , ,

Simon, a barrister for over 35 years, prosecuted and defended enough murderers, armed robbers, con artists and assorted villainy to provide a lifetime of true crime stories, but he turned instead to fiction with his Charles Holborne series of 1960s London gangster books, featuring his morally conflicted barrister hero.  The fourth book in the series, Corrupted, is due to be published by Urbane Publications in June 2018. Simon speaks regularly to groups such as Rotary, WI and libraries about his life at the Criminal Bar, how he uses real events and cases in his novels, and his own unusual family history.
