Meet the Author

Nick Wastnage is a crime writer, an optimist, and lover of things wild and wonderful. This eclectic mix makes his books different from other crime novels. His life hasn’t been dull, and he’s used his rich life-experiences to write books with unique, compelling plots that twist and turn, where the characters are multi-layered and life-like. He’s written ten books and short stories. At present, he’s in the middle of writing a trilogy, The Harry Fingle Collection, about a crusading journalist, Harry Fingle, dedicated to publishing the truth, regardless of threats to his life. Playing Harry, the first in the trilogy, is available now.Nick was born in a small, seaside town in Essex, England. After school, he joined The Royal Marines as a Lieutenant, and led a troop of marines in a military operation in Borneo, where he was shot and airlifted from the jungle to a nearby hospital. During his time in the marines, he learnt about leadership, dealing with stress, and dedication to achieving a goal. His most cherished moments were leading and working with his team to achieve their mission.He spent five years in the marines, and then went into business, where he was able to blend his understanding of human nature, experience of stress, and goal-setting logic –all learnt from the military – with business expectations, and bring about some success.Over the years, he’s experienced a few death-defying moments, business success and failure, near bankruptcy, and some sporting achievements. He’s enjoyed much personal happiness, and been touched by tragedy. He thrives on adversity – thinking, Where one door closes, another opens.He’s sanguine about life, and doesn’t see his past as special, just stuff he’s been through. He works hard to use his life experiences and understanding of people to make his books realistic, compelling, and as good as he can get them. Most of all, he wants the reader to enjoy them.

    Nick Wastnage is at his best orchestrating tales of cat and mouse thrillers.  Playing Harry is Wastnage at his zenith as he lays out the tale of journalist Harry Fingle.  A story that builds like a snowball gathering steam as it rolls downhill, this seemingly simple story of justice gets larger and more complicated with each flip of the page.  Before we even know what hits us we are embroiled in an international scandal lined thick with layers of love, intrigue, and corporate power, all of which is laced with unrelenting action.  

    I have now read several novels by Wastnage and this one tops what has already become a fairly impressive collection by one of the UK’s best storytellers.

    Review: "Playing Harrying" by Nick Wastnage was inde


    Review:

    "Playing Harrying" by Nick Wastnage was indeed at good mystery read. I was kept seating on the edge of my seat...quickly turning the ages until I was finished with this wonderful read. Be ready for a action packed read that will have you waiting for the next twist and turn because there will be many for "Playing Harry." Being a senior journalist working for 'The Morning Times was what Harry loved. However, problems came.... and he had been found not guilty of a trumped- up charge...and that is how this story starts. The author was able to keep the reader very interested in what was going on....the death of his brother...sister-in-law... all comes together in a violent international conspiracy that will only leave you saying WoW!

    The characters were simply off the chart....good.....here are a few...Harry Fingle, Philip Stacey, Amie Lue, Richard Morecombe, Kate Fisher, Gary Lester, Jimmy, Ed James, Alex Goad, Clair & Joe Fingle, John Edwards, Dave, Jackie, Boris, Natasha, Scott Reynolds, Paul Thompson, Jill Fellows, Sheila Robinson, Mirman Rodriquez and I am sure I have left out someone. All of these characters had their certain amount of flavor(even the bad) that truly added a plus to this excellent read to find out how. Now to find out more you will simply have to pick up "Playing Harry" to find out.

    If you are in for a good mystery with corruption, conspiracy, drugs, lost love, grief and more.... you are at the right place for "Playing Harry" and I would recommend this novel as a excellent read for you.
