Author website Hive Amazon

Gordon is an ex-techy in the Ministry of Defence and an ex-partner in one of the Big Four accountancy firms. Maybe that’s where he gets his interest in spies and crooks. He writes about the important things in life: conflicted heroes and headstrong women embroiled in tangled tales of life, love and death. He is the author of the No. 1 bestselling eBook The Hanging Shed and the new novel Bitter Water in the Brodie series as well as Truth Dare Kill and The Unquiet Heart in the Danny McRae series.

A master of tartan noir, the Danny McRae and Douglas Brodie series combine thrills, violence and a hefty dose of black humour. Strong plots and believable characters delivered with a fast pace make these books a cut above the average historical crime novel.
