His novels have also led to two successful TV series – Thorne by Sky One starring David Morrissey, and In the Dark by the BBC. A third is currently in development based on his 2020 novel Rabbit Hole which was named Crime Book of the Year by the Times.

The In Conversation with BroadstairsLit event will take place on Sunday, June 11 3pm at The Yarrow Hotel in Broadstairs and is being sponsored by Ramsgate based company Spurling Cannon Accountants
