Author Patrick Brigham - Mystery Novelist
...as a journalist I witnessed the changes in this once hard core Communist Country...
Patrick Brigham has now written six original mystery novels, including three thrillers, three literary fiction stories and a play.
The thrillers, all set at the very end of Communism and the Cold War, feature jazz loving and classic car enthusiast, DI Michael Lambert. Initially working for Thames Valley Police and latterly for Europol in the Hague, he faces not only political intrigue – as Eastern Europe conjoins with the EU - but the contempt of old Communist Party members and establishment figures, as they too experience change in the Balkans.
The three literary fiction novels are various. But they all have the whiff of undiscovered crimes, and treachery about them, with the occasional appearance of MI6 and five, in order to liven things up. The subject of gun running, money laundering, child abduction, ISIS and people trafficking, all find their way into Patrick Brighams thoughtful stories, bringing a refreshing new slant to modern popular fiction.
