Luca Veste is a writer of Italian and Liverpudlian heritage, married with two young daughters, and one of nine children. He studied psychology and criminology at university in Liverpool. He is the author of the Murphy and Rossi series, which includes DEAD GONE, THE DYING PLACE, BLOODSTREAM, and THEN SHE WAS GONE.

Part psychological thriller, part police procedural, his books follow the detective pairing of DI David Murphy and DS Laura Rossi. The novels are set in Liverpool, bringing the city to life in a dark and terrifying manner...with just a splash of Scouse humour.

"Astringent and artfully constructed." The Financial Times

"A darkly impressive novel... disturbing and intelligent." The Times

"Page-turner." Sunday Times

"A chilling début from a writer to watch..." Mark Billingham

"Gripping, unpredictable, genuinely shocking and impossible to put down, Dead Gone is a remarkable début." Steve Mosby

"A twisty, psychological crime debut in a gritty setting: a new favourite for police procedural lovers" Clare Mackintosh

"Tense and darkly playful." Chris Ewan

"A major new talent on the crime scene." Eva Dolan

"Fresh...original." Mel Sherratt

"Original and terrifying." Stav Sherez

He is also the editor of the Spinetingler Award nominated charity anthology 'Off The Record', and co-editor of 'True Brit Grit', also an anthology of short stories for charity.

He is a former civil servant, actor, singer and guitarist (although he still picks it up now and again), and now a full-time writer.

He can be found at www.lucaveste.com and on twitter @LucaVeste
