Who writes like...? Choosing a crime author

Libraries are a great place for dipping your toe in the water, or rather for letting your fingers do the choosing and there is also a handy little book that can help with that.  I came across this when I was appearing at Chichester Library with fellow crime authors Peter Lovesey and Simon Brett and it's called Who Else Writes Like?

I opened the book and found my entry right under J. K Rowling, author of the Harry Potter series, who is also a crime author under the name Robert Galbraith.  What  a good place to appear!

Reviewers have also compared the DI Andy Horton novels to American writers, Ed McBain and Joseph Wambaugh and their British counterparts John Harvey and Peter Robinson both of the latter mentioned in the directory, Who Else Writes Like?

In addition if you like Colin Dexter, Ann Cleeves, Robert Barnard, Graham Hurley, Dorothy Simpson and Neil White then you might like the DI Andy Horton marine mystery crime series, my crime thrillers and my new crime series to be launched in 2015 featuring former Marine Commando, Special Boat Services Officer, Art Marvik in Silent Running..

There is also a good website called Fantastic Fiction where it is suggested that if you like Peter James and Stephen Booth, amongst other crime authors, you might like the DI Horton series.

If you're new to my crime novels then you can get a flavour of them on my website.
