A former superintendent with Thames Valley Police, David Hodges is a prolific crime writer and author of eleven crime novels, plus an autobiography on his life in the police service. His debut crime novel received critical media acclaim and a welcome accolade from Inspector Morse’s creator, the late great Colin Dexter, and since then he has become the author of several successful stand-alone thrillers, including BLAST and TARGET (Endeavour Media). In particular, his Somerset Murder Series (Joffe Books), set on the mist-shrouded Somerset Levels in England and featuring the exploits of feisty detective, Kate Lewis (nee Hamblin), and her easy-going partner, Hayden, has gone from strength to strength, attracting keen interest in the USA as well as in Britain. Four of the first books in this series have now been republished by Joffe Books, with a fifth to be republished shortly, together with David’s latest thriller. David has two married daughters and four grandchildren and lives in the UK with his wife, Elizabeth, where he continues to indulge his passion for thriller writing and pursue his keen interest in the countryside. He is a member of the Crime Writers Association, The Crime Readers Association, The Society of Authors and International Thriller Writers Inc.

‘Great Read. It follows on from this author’s other books following Detective Sergeant Kate Lewis’s fight against crime. If you like a crime thriller that you can’t put down, try this one.’

‘Really good read. Perfect length for a thriller. Great blend of traditional and modern.’

‘I have read five of David Hodges’s crime thrillers and enjoyed them all. They are exciting and compulsive reading, the sort of crime novel that you find hard to put down once you pick it up. Can’t wait for his latest thriller to be published. Soon, I hope.’
