Before turning his hand to fiction, Neil Broadfoot worked as a journalist for 15 years - an experience that greatly influenced his high-octane thrillers Falling Fast and The Storm, both of which feature crime reporter Doug McGregor. Falling Fast was an instant success, shortlisted for the prestigious Deanston Scottish Crime Book of the Year Award and the Dundee International Book Prize. Its follow-up, The Storm, has garnered praise from critics, crime fiction authors and readers alike, and has established Neil as one of the heavyweight writers on the (in)famous Tartan Noir scene.
