Keith Nixon is the best-selling author of nineteen novels and well over one million words in print, including the Margate based Solomon Gray series of over 350,000 copies in circulation and reached no.1 on Amazon in the UK, US, Canada and Australia and the unique Jonah Pennance series.
Keith lived near the gritty seaside town of Margate, where many of his novels are based, for 17 years before relocating to the edge of the Peak District with his family where he lives today. Keith once worked in a senior sales role within a high-tech industry, regularly travelling all over the globe, but now writes (almost) full-time.
His novels are published by Gladius Press and Bastei Lubbe (in German).

'The plot is deftly woven and subtly seeded with little clues to help you along the way but I was still taken aback by the final reveal and felt like kicking myself. Which is just the way it should be.'
Crime Fiction Lover
'The twist at the end is one of the most jaw-dropping moments I have had reading crime thrillers. For hours afterwards I was going back over everything in the book and the clues are all there, but I did not see it coming at all. I cannot recommend this book highly enough.'
'It is well written, with fast-paced descriptions, a hard-hitting plot, great characters and unexpected twists and turns.'
'What a great character Keith Nixon has created here. Promises to be one heck of a ride.'
