About this author

Mark Capell is a former documentary television director. He made shows for the BBC, ITV and satellite. He got to meet all sorts of weird and wonderful people, including a gangster who offered, for 'cost price', to kill anybody who upset him. Needless to say, he never took up the offer.

Instead, he decided to take his storytelling skills to the world of fiction.

His debut novel, 'Run, Run, Run', became a number one bestselling crime thriller on Amazon.

He followed it up with a series of novellas about a failed actor who becomes a successful undercover cop because of his inordinate ability to lie - The Myles Morgan Mysteries.

'Vows to Kill' was his second full length novel and is about a detective who receives a death threat: I will kill you on

“There was a ringing in his ears, like a dead phone line that he couldn’t hang up on.”
Mark Capell, Run, Run, Run

“Last summer, in London at least, the hoodie was transformed from a benign piece of leisurewear into a uniform for the disaffected, the angry, the malevolent. So much so that ‘hoodie’ was no longer a piece of clothing. It was a whole person. A hoodie was somebody likely to steal, plunder and do you unimaginable harm.

People were crossing the street when a hoodie crossed their path - even if it was a 70-year-old gentleman walking his dog. That’s how quickly the fear had permeated the collective consciousness. And lifting the hood was tantamount to cocking a gun.”
Mark Capell, RIOT MURDER - Myles Morgan Undercover #2

“In the main café area next door, Delilah is coming to the end of Moonlight Sonata. The final notes are deep, sad — placed in a way only Beethoven knows how to place notes. They drill a hole in my stomach and place a lead weight there. If death has ever been portrayed in music, it’s in those final bars. And yet, at the same time, they’re so beautiful.”
Mark Capell, Cafe Insomniac

“Dell had left the army and taken the discipline home with him. I’d left the theatre world and taken the whisky sodas home with me.”

“I settle for a radio station that’s currently playing a Tom Waits track. That man has so much gravel in his voice that, if he coughed, you could build a road with the contents of his phlegm.”
Mark Capell, Cafe Insomniac

“What would be the point of safety measures? What’s the point of a man balancing on a wire if there’s no risk of his life coming to a premature end? Where’s the danger in that? Where’s the spectacle?”
