Hailed by the Daily Mail as ‘a classic crime star in the making’, Adrian Magson’s latest book is Rocco and the Nightingale, the fifth novel in a popular French series featuring Inspector Lucas Rocco.
"Magson takes the suburban thriller overseas and gives it a good twist. Readers ……will happily get lost in the nightmare presented here" (Booklist Reviews).
Adrian had written eighteen crime and spy thriller series built around Harry Tate, ex-soldier and MI5 officer: "fast-paced, with more twists and turns than a high-octane roller coaster" (New York Journal of Books); Inspector Lucas Rocco (set in 1960s’ Picardie in France): "Deserves to be ranked with the best" - (Daily Mail); "captures perfectly the rural atmosphere of France…. a brilliant debut…" (Books Monthly): and Gavin & Palmer (investigative reporter Riley Gavin & ex- Military Policeman Frank Palmer) "Gritty and fast-paced detecting of the traditional kind, with a welcome injection of realism" (The Guardian).
Adrian also has countless short stories and articles in national and international magazines to his name plus a non-fiction work: Write On! – the Writer’s Help Book (Accent Press).
Adrian lives in the Forest of Dean, and rumours that he is building a nuclear bunker are unfounded. It is in fact, a bird table.
