Rob has written police procedural, mystery, suspense, psychological thrillers, YA, occult, horror, and now he’s done history-mystery with Inspector Alastair Ransom in City for Ransom and its sequels – Shadows in White City and City of the Absent. City was named Poison Pen’s Pick for its category in January 2006. Otto Penzler’s Mysterious Bookshop News calls it “riveting historical mystery”, while Edgar winner David Ellis calls it “Crime Noir at its finest.” Shadows in the White City won the 2007 Lovey Award.
