In over twenty years as an author, Mark Timlin has written some thirty novels under many different names, including best selling books as Lee Martin, innumerable short stories, an anthology and numerous articles on diverse subjects for various newspapers and magazines.
He has made a few friends, many enemies, of whom he is most proud, and drank a good few bars dry. His serial hero, Nick Sharman, who appears in Stay Another Day, has featured in a Carlton TV series, starring Clive Owen, before he went on to become a Hollywood superstar.
Mark lives in a Docklands penthouse with a panoramic view across the River Thames of his beloved south London. He drives a massive Lincoln Town car, collects old vinyl, crime novels, music magazines, while watching far too much daytime TV and DVD box sets.
Like Martina Cole; read Mark Timlin. The effervescent Martina Cole has established a new genre of empowered, strong female-led crime books that has taken her to the top of the bestseller liosts, but she is also one of the best chroniclers of modern London and its suburbs and much of the reason for her success is the way the places she writes about are familiar to her readers. Timlin effortlessly pulls off the same trick with his fast-paced tales of South London gangsters and families, and also happens to be a friend of Martina’s!Recommended:Martina Cole - HARD GIRLS. A retired policewoman returns to the fray to assist a younger colleague, following the discovery of a young woman’s mutilated body. The challenges that face the duo prove tough and uncompromising. Realistic, gritty and believable.Mark Timlin - GUNS OF BRIXTON. Best known for his Nick Sharman capers, this is Timlin’s major stand-alone novel, a tough saga of South London families, of cops and villains and loves lost and violence and lives broken. Never less than gripping and a veritable page-turner.
Poor old Nick Sharman may be dead and gone, but there's still life left in the old dog yet - as Mark Timlin shows in this collection of stories about his memorable detective. Follow Sharman as he rocks through the underworld of 90s London and beyond with more than a helping hand from his old mate Detective Inspector Robber, both men still sharp as a pair of tacks. There's murder, mayhem and maybe a few laughs on the way - plus an interesting soundtrack...
Ex-doper and former-cop Nick Sharman is nobody's favourite person. After a stray bullet in the foot gets him chucked out of the Met (and saves him from a missing evidence case) he decides to set up shop as a PI in his south London patch. Expecting divorces and debt-collecting, he lands himself with a missing person case. Patsy Bright is young, pretty and missing, and her father wants her back. She's a good girl, a model, and only a little bit into drugs. With Sharman's connections it should be a piece of cake
