Who doesn’t love a cracking crime story, full of twists?
I’m British crime thriller writer A.A. Abbott – known to friends as Helen – and I believe a good read is one of life’s greatest pleasures.
I write fast-paced suspense thrillers set in the British cities of London and Birmingham. Birmingham, Britain's buzzy second city, won't be so well-known to international readers as the capital. In reading my books, I hope you learn to love it as much as I do.
My latest books, the Trail series, follow the fortunes of two families running a vodka business - and what happens when they fall out with a London crime boss. The Bride's Trail leads from London to the secret tunnels (which really exist!) below Birmingham's historic Jewellery Quarter. The trail continues with a kidnap in the former Soviet Union in The Vodka Trail, an ill-starred venture with a marijuana farmer in The Grass Trail and a killer on the loose in The Revenge Trail.
Like 10% of us, many of my family are dyslexic. While I'm not, I want my books to be enjoyed by readers with dyslexia and visual impairment too. That's why I publish my thrillers in a LARGE PRINT dyslexia-friendly edition as well as the standard paperback and Kindle versions. Don't forget, you can also adjust the font on your Kindle to suit your needs.
