Tony Black - Author


Tony Black is the author of twelve previous novels, including Artefacts of the Dead and His Father's Son. An award-winning journalist, he was born in Australia and grew up in Scotland and Ireland.

Tony was shortlisted for The Guardian's Not the Booker Prize in 2014 and has been nominated for the Crime Writers Association Dagger six times.

Maxim Jakubowski's view on Tony Black...

Tony Black's third novel LOSS is another bleak investigation for his poignant Edinburgh washed up journalist turned involuntary private investigator Gus Dury. Black writes about urban blight and the curse of alcohol like no other, but his down at heel tales are also full of everyday humour. Harrowing but indispensable.

If you like Tony Black you might also like to read books by Quintin Jardine, Mark Sennen and Craig Robertson.
