About the Author

Roy and Garry Robson are, unsurprisingly, brothers from the Elephant and Castle, south east London.  

Their father (variously a pig farmer, cab driver, haulage contractor and general ducker and diver) and mother (homemaker, cook and doctor’s receptionist with a well-timed left hook) raised them and their siblings with some old fashioned south London working class values. These included hard work, respect for their elders and a willingness to duck and dive when required.

They have endeavoured, with varying degrees of success, to maintain the values their parents tried to instill in them. One day, whilst enjoying a beer or two, they decided to write a Crime Thriller Series. The gritty, pulsating and stylish London Large series is the result. 

Roy lives in Bromley and works as a Service Delivery Manager for an International IT Consultancy. Garry lives in Krakow and is now, of all things, a sociology professor. Both career choices served as a source of confusion and humour to their parents, who were born and raised in the days before computers and sociology professors existed.

Although Harry ‘H’ Hawkins, the protagonist of the London Large novels, shares some of their old-fashioned values, he is not based upon Garry or Roy, neither of whom would survive the first chapter of a Harry Hawkins novel.

This book is a good page turner right out of the gates! It starts with a bloody crime scene right outside the Queen's residence in London, and as the story unfolds, Detective Hawkins and his partner Amisha, uncover corruption of some of the most influential people in London's population. In order to save his partner's life, Detective Hawkins has to race against the clock to reach her before she becomes one of the many people that lose their life to cover up the crimes of the rich and powerful. This is a fast paced mystery story right from the first page, and as the story progresses, the level of corruption gets deeper and deeper.
