Nick Louth is a bestselling writer of thriller novels, investment commentator, and an award-winning financial journalist, hailing from Lincolnshire, United Kingdom. He is famous for writing humor, comedy, thriller, mystery, and nonfiction stories. Louth is particularly well known for writing the Bernard Jones diaries series, the DCI Craig Gillard series, several standalone novels, and one widely popular nonfiction book. He is known to have sold more than half a million copies of his books. Louth’s books have appeared on top of the Kindle charts in the UK multiples times and have been translated into as many as 6 different languages. Before making his debut in the field of writing fiction in 2007, he worked as a foreign correspondent for the news agency Reuters. He was also a frequent contributor to MSN, Financial Times, and many other financial magazines on a freelance basis.

Author Louth graduated from the London School of Economics in 1979. After working as a freelancer for a few years, he joined Reuters in 1987. While catering to his duty in foreign correspondence, Louth came across an experience at a 1992 Amsterdam medical conference that inspired him to write his first fiction novel. It was eventually published in 2007 under the title of Bite and reached the top spot of the UK Kindle bestseller in 2014. The book remained on the number one spot for several weeks and sold nearly 500 thousand copies. In the area of financial journalism, Louth has been working freelance since 1998. He has contributed to Investors Chronicle, Money Observer, Financial Times, etc., and has published 7 books based on finance. Author Louth is happily married and currently resides in Lincolnshire. He spends most of his time writing thriller novels and manages some time off from his writing projects to be with his family.

Louth says that he caused too much frustration to his publishers by wandering between the thriller world’s many sub-genres, such as terrorism, medical, psychological, and zombie. He has also tried to involve the issues normally seen in women’s fiction in his commercial novels. Louth did this deliberately as he believes that such novels have the pace necessary for luring male readers. He developed the plot of Bite based on the belief that the diseases that most people succumbed to during the late 1990s were the ones in which the drug companies invested the least citing the poor background of the customers.

In his book Heartbreaker, Louth wanted to depict the dilemmas faced by Western journalists who are involved in covering terrible events on a routine basis. Set in one of Lebanon’s refugee camps, the novel also focusses on the price paid the translators, fixers, and the drivers who work for those journalists. A key part of the novel is based on radicalization and how it affects women. With his other book titled Mirror Mirror, Louth tried to dive into the world of women’s self-image and identity in the age of branding and celebrity. His hopes with raising such issues are to make the readers look at the important questions posed in the story and take away what he really wants them to have.

The DCI Craig Gillard series written by author Nick Louth began in 2017. This book features the chief protagonist in the role of Detective Chief Inspector Craig Gillard. Other essential characters mentioned in the books by Louth include Martin Knight, Liz Knight, Peter Young, and several others. Louth has set the plots of this series in Lincolnshire. The debut book of this thriller series is entitled ‘The Body in the Marsh’. It was released in 2017 by the Canelo publication. Initially, it is depicted that a woman disappears mysteriously and when the case comes to the notice of DCI Craig Gillard, he becomes too desperate to find out what happened to that woman. Martin Knight is introduced as a criminologist, who keeps making things difficult for the police because of his activities that prove their inefficiency in keeping the city safe from criminals. Later, his wife, Liz Knight, goes missing and there is no one to explain what happened to her, not even Martin Knight.

The case becomes a personal one for Craig Gillard because Liz is his former girlfriend. After the initial investigation, Craig suspects that it is not just a case of a missing person, but something more. He thinks that the disappearance of his wife is related to the latest case that Martin Knight was working on. As the story proceeds further, Craig Gillard goes on to unravel darker truths that no one ever imagined. This book describes a gripping story filled with shocking twists. Many critics have labeled it as a must-read for the fans of Patricia Gibney, Carole Wyer, and Robert Bryndza.

The second volume of this series is called ‘The Body on the Shore’. It was also released by the Canelo publication in 2018. This book is based on a case involved in a brutal killer targeting victims in the safe commuter belt of Lincolnshire. Initially, it is shown that a promising architect named Peter Young is killed by a gunshot in his office. Craig Gillard reaches the crime scene quickly to find that the murder was a professional and brutal one. The killer had fired two bullets and both hit Peter Young at the killer’s intended spot, killing him instantly. Craig Gillard begins the case’s investigation by trying to find the answer to the most important question that why would anybody want to kill Peter Young.

A couple of weeks later, he is informed that a dead body has been found on a beach on the coast of Lincolnshire. The victim is not identifiable, but carries a burned brand around his neck. The mystery continues to deepen as Craig Gillard is not able to find any answers about any of the two cases. He finds himself facing the dark forces who intend to deal only in blood. Craig Gillard races against time to save the lives of innocent children and his own while striving to hunt down a cunning killer. This book also contains jaw-dropping twists & turns that keep the readers engaged until the very end. Louth has filled this novel with a lot of suspense and thrill, thereby making it an interesting read.
