  • By Tom Bryson
    "THIS COP HAS 'LEGS' - ONE TO WATCH OUT FOR" Crime writer NICK OLDHAM (author of the Det. Henry Christie novels) SAYS: TOO SMART TO DIE (Matt Proctor novels): 'Welcome to the world of DCI Matt Proctor in Tom Bryson's first thriller, TOO SMART TO DIE. An under pressure Proctor has to deal not only with murder, but also police corruption - a discovery that leads to his ignominious suspension from the police. However, this opens new avenues for Proctor as he stumbles upon a deadly cyberworld cult that threatens Proctor and his family. Set in the real world - a superbly described West Midlands, the Black Country - very appropriate - Bryson has created a flawed and very real character in Matt Proctor whose life is a mess professionally and personally. This is a great debut from Bryson, who is one to watch out for as is, I hope, Matt Proctor, a character who I think has the legs to front a whole series of novels.' PEGGY PATERSON, former drama editor Faber and Faber SAYS:... More > '...reminded me of a Raymond Chandler novel (maybe Farewell my Lovely) with its descriptions of the surrounding area. I very much liked your main character, Matt Proctor, completely believable. The deaths were suitably horrible but I was relieved to read them without getting nightmares... I loved the portrayal of the girls, going out and getting wasted, unsuitable men & etc. We've all been there when younger. ...Hall, too is a completely believable nasty piece of work... ..your work is nuch more character based and we have the realisation that the Nightwatchmen are not just a bunch of geeky, pathetic boys but serious about killing. And the (computer) gaming together with the brain sucking works well so that you make something incredible, credible. I look forward to the next one!' TOO SMART TO DIE (Matt Proctor novels)< Less
