INSPECTOR CARLYLE My books are about Inspector John Carlyle, he's a policeman, working out of the Charing Cross police station in Central London.

The first Carlyle novel, London Calling was published in 2011 and there are now 4 books in the series with No.5 due in August 2013.

The original idea for the core storyline of London Calling came after reading A Florentine Death, by Michele Giuttari, who is a former head of the Florence Police Force. The protagonist perhaps owes most to Donna Leon’s iconoclastic Venetian detective Guido Brunetti but there is also more than a nod to Andrea Camilleri’s sicilian gumshoe Salvo Montalbano.

Overall, I would describe the novels as 'European crime fiction', full of shades of grey, moral ambiguities & unfinished business.
