Alastair Brown is a Scottish thriller writer who authors the no-holds-barred, all-action book series featuring Joe Beck - the unlicensed outlaw private eye who drifts around America righting wrongs and reaping riches whilst serving up his own brand of vigilante justice.

With a character very much based on himself, Alastair finds inspiration from reading crime reports, watching true crime documentaries, and consuming other works of crime fiction. Everything he writes is designed to captivate and entertain, and finds no better compliment than seeing his readers comment that once they've started reading his books, they just can't put them down.

When he’s not writing, he's usually pushing himself to his limits at the gym or reading the occasional crime report while drinking copious amounts of coffee as he plots the next Joe Beck thriller and conjures up the horrors he'll be thrown up against. He also likes to listen to classic rock music and he appreciates some down time, preferably spent kicking back with a beer while basking under the burning rays of the scorching sun.
