Top-selling thriller writer Steven Dunne was discovered when he self-published his first novel, The Reaper, and received rave reviews on the book-rating site authonomy.com. He was one of the very first authors to be signed up by mainstream publisher Harper Collins in this way.
Based in Derby, Steven has gone on to write five novels, building a loyal and growing following.
The Sun newspaper described his work as: ‘Fast paced and thrilling, crime writing at its best.’
His latest novel, A Killing Moon, is due to be published on May 7th, 2015.
Each of his books is based around the lead character, Detective Inspector Damen Brook, a former high-flying Met Police officer who is haunted by his failure to catch a brutal serial killer.
Book reviewer Pam Norfolk said DI Brook has evolved into one of the best and most memorable fictional detectives in a crowded market. ‘He has the intellectual prowess of Morse, the fearless combative manner of Rebus, the humanity of Wallander and the moral probity of Phillip Marlowe,’ she said.
