Tim was born in Zimbabwe in 1962. He spent his early years in Zimbabwe, the UK and then Hong Kong. At the age of eight he went off to boarding school in the UK, spending his holidays in Germany, where his father was stationed. He loved the country and its people and in planning to create a new detective series it seemed natural to choose 60s Berlin.

He has been writing for many years, including plays: Wilfrid's Sussex (1980), Word Over All (1987); and many short stories, including Girl Hunter (2019 Max Becker), The Helmet and The Heist (Max Becker), No Love - In Love, The Unusual Legacy of Ruth Bachmeyer, End of the Line, Dr Klein and Mr Banerjee, Alice Band to Myrtle Beach, Ballad of a Slave and released his first novel, Angel Avenger: A Ma

Correction

Hi,

apology to German speakers - I am learning German at the moment, part of trying to improve the context of my Max Becker stories - I noticed that I made a mistake with the gender of the compund noun Der Mädchenjäger - I had it as 'Das', which is correct for Mädchen but should have followed the 'Der' of Jäger, which is masculine.
I have corrected this and uploaded a new ebook. I also noted a Germa Read more of this blog post »

“As a fellow Wehrmacht soldier and war veteran, he feels great sympathy for this man. Postwar Germany had little time for its veterans, wanting to bury the shame in denial.”

“Bastian says, "see that's my weakness, I'm crap at politics. But be careful; don't make yourself look weak, not in the lion's den."
Otti smiles, saying, "I think you'll find, in the lion's world, it's the lioness does all the hunting and killing."
"True, but the lion always gets to eat first, doesn't he?”
