Jason Dalgliesh was born on the south coast of England and grew up in Hampshire, UK. He has worked in the power transmission industry, the retail sector, call centres and as a night-owl in a bakery. He has a degree in history.
Following on from the worldwide bestselling Dark Yorkshire crime series, he has introduced us to DI Tom Janssen in the Hidden Norfolk books. Rapidly becoming bestsellers in their own right, the first in the series, One Lost Soul, hit #3 in the Amazon Kindle store and the fifth book, Hear No Evil, was shortlisted for Amazon’s prestigious Kindle Storyteller Award in 2020. Jason has seen multiple books top the charts in the USA, Canada and Australia.
The two series are set in England, Yorkshire and Norfolk respectively. The medieval City of York is DI Caslin’s home town and the wind swept coast of north Norfolk is home to DI Janssen and his team. The plot lines take in some of the UK’s most rugged and beautiful landscapes.
Penned in the style of crime thrillers with a touch of Scandinavian noir, readers who enjoy dark atmospheric mysteries will find both series a must read.
Having spent time abroad, Jason has lived and worked in various parts of England as well as the Scottish Highlands. He currently lives in Norfolk with his wife and two young children.
