I have received a lovely review from a Danny Lancaster fan who has read all four of my crime thrillers in paperback. She doesn’t “do” internet so she sent me a letter which I think I will frame. Here’s what she said:

"Bill Todd writes with style and intelligence. The story moves to its climax at a cracking pace that leaves scorch marks on the page and the reader gagging for more.
"The writing is clever and witty, rattling good tales that keeps up the tension and excitement right through to the brilliant ending. Fast, funny and hot!
Danny Lancaster is an inspired creation. He is the thinking woman’s action-man. Every man would want to have him as a best mate.
"The background detail is thorough and so well researched. This gives the stories their authenticity and believable quality, yet Bill Todd never lets the detail hold up the action which carries the reader along at breath-taking speed. This is story-telling at its very finest.
"Brilliant stuff, deftly told with a mischievous sense of humour. As each book ends the reader is left longing for more. The characters, main and minor, stay in the memory and you care what happens to them. All of them..."

I have just had the adrenalin tsunami of my first TV interview. Major stage fright beforehand, giddy, panting, feet numb.
Can’t remember much of what I said although I’m told I talked about Danny Lancaster, Rock Hard, Gibraltar, travel writing and a few other bits and bobs.
I don’t recall smiling at any stage and I certainly failed to wave my hands around like they do on the BBC.
I tried trimming the beard earlier. Usually a No2 does the job but I think the ratchet on my shaver is slipping. I looked like a badly-plucked chicken.
When the cameras stopped and the lights died, one thing I took immediately from the experience was a huge respect for actors.
If I can melt into a tunnel-visioned wreck talking about my crime thrillers, imagine the skill and mental strength required to present Hamlet to an audience of hundreds.
It’s only a five-minute interview so, hopefully, brevity will be the soul of wit. Perhaps I protest too much but that’s the job, words, words, words, rough-hew them how we will.
In hindsight I think I probably have the perfect face for radio.
Exeunt omnes in pursuit of a beer.

When the giant cargo ship Margherita sheds her cargo in a Channel storm Danny Lancaster and his friends go beachcombing. But among the mangled containers they find more than they bargained for. The discovery draws Danny to a network of gangsters and dodgy politicians. Girlfriend Emma is tormented by an urgent secret. Exotic dancer Minty is in danger. Her sister Claire has her own agenda. Skidmarks’s business is about to go bust. Wanda worries if Bob is strong enough for the task he has set himself. And Big Eddie Archer wants a word. Then Danny remembers one bloody day in Afghanistan and calls in a debt to track down a secret factory. The fuse is lit for a bonfire night confrontation. That’s when the real storm breaks.
“A dark, sexy and intelligent novel”

It’s not easy being a private investigator.
You work when things go wrong. You’re the fire brigade for people’s car crash lives.
It can be tough. It can be ugly. Someone else’s bad luck pays your bills.
But you don’t live in a bubble. You’re not immune.
You know how clients feel when tragedy strikes because you lost your wife to a horrible disease, leaving too few memories and two young kids.
Dating a woman who can’t decide to leave her loser husband has taught you how private lives can get complicated.
And you know death and pain from your time as a soldier. Remember the day the career you loved ended suddenly, violently.
You enjoy your life.
It’s complicated but you smile and carry on.
There’s nothing else you can do.
