It was dark but not too dark. As a reader, I enjoyed every twist and turn. The setting is made authentic not only by the author’s Glasgow upbringing but his ability to visualize the grey, gloomy Scottish November that is a perfect setting for this whodunit- The characters were great. The reason for the murder was believable. I can see it happening in real life

This psychological thriller is a crime story with a difference, following one man’s obsession with power and control. He uses five separate personae to independently control the different divisions of his life.After this he collaborated with Elly Grant to produce ‘Twists and Turns’ a book of short stories ranging from flash fiction to a novella, all having mystery, some horror and some more amusing.Zach’s second novel, ‘Made a Killing’, is the first book in the Alex Warren series. It follows the investigation after the killing of a much hated criminal where an elephant tusk was used as the murder weapon. This was followed by ‘A Measure of Trouble’ where Alex’s team seek the murderer of a CEO killed within the cask room of his whisky distillery. The third, ‘Written to Death,’ deals with a mysterious death during a writers’ group meeting. – These are fast moving, gripping, murder mystery novels set in the tough crime-ridden streets of Glasgow.Zach’s quirky thriller, ‘Source; A Fast-Paced Financial Crime Thriller ‘ has three investigative journalists travelling across the UK, Spain and France as they research corruption and sabotage in the banking sector while trying to cope with their own fraught personal lives.All of Zach’s books can be purchased from Amazon as ebooks and paperbacks.

Married with two children, he plays no instruments but has an eclectic taste in music, although not as obsessive as Benjamin. Unlike Benjamin, he does not maintain mistresses, write pornography and (sadly) he does not have ownership of such a company. He is not a sociopath (at least by his own reckoning) and all versions of his life are aware of and freely communicate with each other.More in keeping with ‘Alex Warren’, Zach was raised in Glasgow and has spent many years working in Central Scotland.
