Crime fighter turned crime writer

‘I can’t tell you the truth, but I can tell you a story…’ ™

With twenty years’ policing experience, specialising in counter-terror operations and organised crime, David was a lead Scotland Yard detective on the 7/7 London bombings investigation. His debut thriller, The Theseus Paradox is based on the real events of that time. Its secrets were probed by the UK’s leading investigative journalist, Andrew Gilligan, and featured in The Sunday Telegraph, the Daily Mirror, The Sun, and on Sky and ITV News.

David’s follow-up thriller, The Detriment, explores the mystery behind the blazing Jeep attack on Glasgow Airport. A third book in the DI Jake Flannagan series, based on real events, is to follow.

David is a regular commentator on crime, terrorism and policing for the BBC, national newspapers and other media outlets. His television credits include The Bill, Crimewatch, Burgled and The Attack. Besides writing, he also consults on security matters for high-net-worth individuals.
