Robert Pobi is an internationally bestselling novelist whose work has been published in more than fifteen countries. He spends the summer months in a cabin in the mountains, and when he's not writing at a desk once owned by Robert Calvi, he fishes for everything that swims - from great white sharks off Montauk to the monstrous pike of northern Finland. He collects early twentieth century American art, listens to a little too much Motorhead, and doesn't do Twitter. He also really digs Rice Krispies treats.
Allan Prior wrote twenty novels and countless television and radio scripts. Best known as a founding writer of the BBC's seminal TV drama Z-Cars, he was twice awarded a Crime Writers' Association Dagger. He died at the age of 84 in June 2006.
