Meet the Author

David Robinson is a Yorkshireman living on the outskirts of Manchester, northwest England, with his wife and a crazy Jack Russell Terrier named Joe (because he looks like a Joe). David writes in several genres under different pseudonyms, but his mainstay is crime and mystery. Although he still self-publishes some work, most of his books are published by Crooked Cat. They put out all the Sanford 3rd Age Club Mysteries, and other, darker, edgier titles such as The Handshaker and Voices, works which are aimed exclusively at an adult audience. In a more light-hearted mood again, he uses the sledgehammer humour of his alter-ego Flatcap, to reflect on the absurdities of the world at large. Four Flatcap volumes are currently available for download and a fifth may be on the horizon As at April 2015, he is working on the 15th STAC Mystery, working title, STAC 15, and the of a new set of noir titles.

    Gritty, Compelling Tale

    Imagine a highly intelligent psychopath using hypnosis to stalk his victims? This rapist/murderer sends cryptic notes which baffle the police, leaving the fate of future targets in the hands of another hypnotist - drawing suspicion upon himself as he tries to help.
    Robinson writes realistic crime drama that pulls no punches, hits raw nerves, and leaves the reader turning pages well into the night. I highly recommend this gritty read.
