Russ Thomas Profile

Russ Thomas

Watch the launch of Russ’ novel Nighthawking here: a full length interview with Vic Watson, plus special guests popping in!

Russ Thomas was born in Essex, raised in Berkshire, and now lives in Sheffield. He grew up in the 80s reading a lot and largely avoiding the great outdoors.

After an inordinate number of “proper” jobs (among them: pot-washer, optician’s receptionist, supermarket warehouse operative, call-centre telephonist, and storage salesman) he discovered the joys of bookselling, where he could talk to people about books all day. 


Firewatching is the first in a brand new police procedural series following the exploits of  DS Adam Tyler and his Cold Case Review Unit.


The second in the series, Nighthawking will be published February 2021.
