Synonymous with plot-twisting page turners, Peter has garnered an army of loyal fans throughout his storytelling career. He has won more than 40 awards for his work, including the WH Smith Best Crime Author of All Time Award, Crime Writers’ Association Diamond Dagger and a BAFTA nomination for The Merchant of Venice starring Al Pacino and Jeremy Irons (for which he was an executive producer.)

Peter was asked to write this novel by Sussex Police to raise awareness of romance fraud due to its alarming prevalence in the UK. He lives locally and uses Sussex as the setting for much of his work
