Alex Breck lives on a wee island off the west coast of Scotland.
No wonder he’s sent young Ridge Walker, the hero of his international adventure thriller series, out into the world to have his adventures a long way from home, though I must admit that Ian Rankin, Stuart MacBride and Val McDermid have managed to find enough criminal activity in Scotland to keep me up at night.
Alex has also penned The Devil You Know, set in Scotland, which sounds like a dark thriller for those who like to chew their fingernails down hoping the dreadful thing won’t happen.
I’ve elected to start my exploration with He Who Pays the Piper, the first book in the Ridge Walker series, to discover what that hedonistic young Scot gets himself mixed up in.
