Mark Dawson was born in Lowestoft and grew up in Manchester and Chicago. He has worked as a lawyer and currently works in the London film industry. His first books, "The Art of Falling Apart" and "Subpoena Colada" have been published in multiple languages.

He is currently writing two series. Soho Noir is set in the West End of London between 1940 and 1970. The first book in the series, "The Black Mile", deals with the (real life but little known) serial killer who operated in the area during the Blitz. "The Imposter" traces the journey of a criminal family (think The Sopranos in austerity London and you'd be on the right track).

The best laid plans...

My next three releases will be the books in the Blood & Roses trilogy. Those of you who have read Ghosts will remember Beatrix Rose, one of John Milton's predecessors as the primary agent of Group 15. I knew by the end of that book that she was a strong and compelling character. I wanted to write a little more about her and so I decided that I would take a very short break from the Milton series a Read more of this blog post »

Quotes by Mark Dawson  (?)

“Unfortunately for Peter McCluskey, the security services had discovered proof that corroborated the suspicion that he had not eschewed his old comrades-in-arms at all. Indeed, he had become even more virulent in his hatred of the British, had turned his back on Sinn Féin, and cast in his lot with the Real IRA, the off-shoot organisation that denounced the Good Friday Agreement and vowed to continue the war. McCluskey had continued to raise money so that they could buy their bullets and their bombs, and Maguire was here to collect that bounty.”
Mark Dawson, Salvation Row

“Alexander took the bottle and poured himself a third glass. Milton hoped that he or Izzy might take the bottle back to the kitchen, where he couldn’t see it, but he left it on the table. Alexander looked at Milton. “What did you say you were doing in town?” “I didn’t. Business.” “What business is that?”
Mark Dawson, Salvation Row

“He took a cocktail of drugs: gabapentin for his nerve damage and oxycodone for general pain relief.”
Mark Dawson, The Cleaner

Topics Mentioning This Author

“When a man's partner is killed he's supposed to do something about it. It doesn't make any difference what you thought of him. He was your partner and you're supposed to do something about it. Then it happens we were in the detective business. Well, when one of your organization gets killed it's bad business to let the killer get away with it. It's bad all around-bad for that one organization, bad for every detective everywhere.
Sam Spade”
Dashiell Hammett, The Maltese Falcon

“I think the act of reading imbues the reader with a sensitivity toward the outside world that people who don't read can sometimes lack. I know it seems like a contradiction in terms; after all reading is such a solitary, internalizing act that it appears to represent a disengagement from day-to-day life. But reading, and particularly the reading of fiction, encourages us to view the world in new and challenging ways...It allows us to inhabit the consciousness of another which is a precursor to empathy, and empathy is, for me, one of the marks of a decent human being.”
John Connolly, The Book of Lost Things

“The best way to find out if you can trust somebody is to trust them.”
Ernest Hemingway

How about a Q & A's for my group " A Good Thriller", as promised.

Would be great if we could read " In Cold Blood" then ask questions.

As you know I have loved these books, would be great to get my group to read your books.

regards

Sean
