Charles den Tex is a highly acclaimed author, whose work has been compared to that of John Grisham, Michael Crichton and Michael Ridpath. He lived in London and Paris before returning to the Netherlands, where he worked as a copy writer and communications and management advisor. Charles den Tex is a three-time winner of the Golden Noose, the Dutch annual prize for the best thriller. His novel CEL was longlisted for the prestigious Libris Literature Prize 2009. Mr. Miller was broadcasted as a TV series on Dutch television. Filmrights have been sold to 20th Century Fox Studios.
Longlisted for the John Creasey (New Blood) Dagger Award 2016. An Amsterdam-set thriller by a Dutch author hitherto unknown in the UK, this has pace and intrigue to spare. Michael Bellicher, a business consultant accidentally stumbles across matters mysterious and finds himself under the scrutiny of the sinister Mr Miller and the unsettling tech organisation he fronts, a stranger who knows things about him he just hould not. The disturbing cloud of technology gone rampant through the seditious power of the Internet taking on a disturbing aura of menace is a familiar trope but the novel's rhythm and sheer readibility, which landed it on the bestseller list back home, conquers all in its rapid wake. An old-fashioned thriller as we once used to like them, albeit with a modern theme. ~ Maxim Jakubowski
