Nick Quantrill was born and raised in Hull, an isolated industrial city in East Yorkshire. His Private Investigator novels featuring Joe Geraghty are published by Fahrenheit Press. The fourth in the series, ‘Sound of the Sinners’ represents a new direction for both Joe and Nick and kick-starts a series of new cases. A prolific short story writer, Nick’s work has appeared in various volumes of ‘The Mammoth Book of Best British Crime’ alongside the genre’s most respected names.
“A gritty slice of northern life, The Late Greats is a superb sequel to his assured debut. Quantrill is a name to watch out for, an incredible storyteller, with a talent for evoking character and setting. He’s on his way to becoming one of the most talked about writers around.”
Sound of the Sinners (Joe Geraghty Book 4) - Launching September 2020
When his former business partner and mentor, Don Ridley, is found dead shortly after asking for his help, Private Investigator Joe Geraghty knows he has to return to Hull and a city he thought was in his past. Weighed down with guilt, Don’s death points to his days with the police and an off the books investigation into the unsolved ‘Car Boot Murder’ decades previously. With dangerous secrets and a conspiracy of silence, the city might have had a makeover during Joe’s absence, but some things don’t change in the northern sea port. With his own life on the line, Joe is unable to stop, a debt to be repaid, but powerful people with vested interests will always seek to ensure some stories stay covered in darkness.
