About the Author

James D Mortain is a former British CID Detective turned crime fiction writer. He began writing in 2012, following a chance encounter in a Bath bar with SAS veteran, TV personality and author Chris Ryan.

James draws upon his extensive knowledge to create fast-paced, authentic crime thrillers and mysteries from over twenty years of experience in the criminal justice system, both on the front line and working within the courts.

His breakthrough series features the likeable yet hapless Bath-based Detective Andy Deans, a man hunted by his past and haunted by his future. His second series features the incomparable DI Robbie Chilcott, a boss with an attitude and a reputation almost as large as his ego.

James lives on the west coast of England in beautiful North Devon with his young family and still dreams one day of being able to stand on a surfboard.
