'The Coffin Trail' - review by Chris High

Martin Edwards: Author

Life, at times, can be hectic for lawyer-by-day and author-by-night Martin Edwards, though he wouldn’t have it any other way. Martin’s Lake District Mysteries to date, The Coffin Trail and The Cipher Garden, have both been extremely well received, while his debut novel featuring Harry Devlin, All the Lonely People, was short-listed for the CWA John Creasey Memorial Dagger. Martin is also the author of the stand-alone psychological thriller, Take My Breath Away and completed the late Bill Knox’s last book, The Lazarus Widow.

Martin has edited 14 crime anthologies, his own collected stories appear in Where Do You Find Your Ideas? and, in 2002, he published a book about homicide investigation, Urge To Kill.

He is a partner in law firm Mace & Jones of Liverpool and Manchester and has published seven other non-fiction books and many articles and reviews.

Martin lives in Cheshire with his wife and children and his work is published by Alison & Busby.
