Simon Tolkien was a successful Criminal Justice barrister in London specializing in serious crimes before moving to California with his wife and two children to take up writing full time. He has been acclaimed as a naturally gifted storyteller with a terrific command of language and a unique perception into the darker sides of human nature. The grandson of J.R.R. Tolkien, with whom he had a very special relationship, Simon Tolkien's writing is set firmly in this world.
`Tolkien's writing is quietly impressive; his atmosphere of the blitzed capital superb.' The Times `Jack Higgins fans will enjoy Tolkien's exciting third suspense novel featuring Det. Insp. William Trave. Heartfelt evocations of the horrors of war, in particular the effects of the bombing raids on Londoners, show Tolkien has upped his game.' Publishers Weekly REVIEWS FOR SIMON TOLKIEN: `Half Christie and half Grisham.' Los Angeles Times `A fine novel. A thinking person's Da Vinci Code.' Chicago Tribune `A very British thriller ... a page turner.' Daily Mail
