Anthony J. Quinn was born in Northern Ireland's County Tyrone and studied English at Queen's University, Belfast. He works as a journalist and author. His first novel, Disappeared, was published by Head of Zeus in 2014.
'Carefully wrought, often lyrical prose, always rich with foreboding' Booklist. 'Quinn is a superb writer and probably one of the best crime novelists around at the moment. Trespass is a wonderful book by any standards' William Ryan's Summer Reading Pick, Sunday Independent. 'Beautiful lyrical language worthy of a major literary work rather than a crime story ... A superb novel, like its predecessors, this may be, but it holds more than its share of truth and is worth the study and understanding of any student of modern history' Crime Review. 'The prose is of a high quality' Irish Examiner. 'Quinn's literary descriptions of the bleak Northern Irish landscape are wonderfully evocative ... if you enjoy a gritty police procedural written with a literary twist, this one is for you' Sunday Independent. 'An outstanding, deeply satisfying and beautifully written police procedural' Irish Independent Top Crime and Thrillers of 2016. 'Quinn's prose has a quality of bleak poetry ... Trespass is a bracing tale of a society ravaged by violence' Irish Times. 'Beautiful writing about ugly events with a plot that's pleasingly serpentine' Sunday Times Crime Club.
