About A P Bateman
A P Bateman is a bestselling action-thriller novelist who has reached the number one spots on Amazon UK, Canada and Australia. He has written fourteen novels - three in the Rob Stone series, nine in the Alex King series and his standalone Cornish crime thrillers Hell's Mouth and Unforgotten. He has also written numerous short stories and novellas and recently been commissioned to write a play for the BBC. It has often been said that there is a high degree of realism to his books, something aided by his love of adventure sports, shooting and his earlier work as a bodyguard and private investigator.
When a disgraced Metropolitan detective is thrown a lifeline with a posting to Cornwall, he expects his life of dangerous undercover work will be replaced by monotony and a backlog of cases more suited to a junior detective. However, after a young girl goes missing and a local man is accused, DI Jackson is thrown into a world of deception, murder and confusion.
How can social outcast Thomas Jago be accused of such terrible crimes and yet always have an alibi?
Jackson is surprised when his teenage daughter turns up, breaking the custody order imposed after his divorce. Time is of the essence with a missing girl to find, but Jackson can’t neglect his own daughter, and finds his world thrown into further chaos when he discovers a former enemy has placed a price on his head, with an assassin who won’t quit.
