Rob Parker

aka Robert Parker

Robert Parker is a married father of three, who lives in a village near Manchester, UK. The author of the Ben Bracken books A Wanted Man and Morte Point, and the standalone post-Brexit country-noir Crook’s Hollow, he enjoys a rural life on an old pig farm (now minus pigs), writing horrible things between school runs.

He writes full time, as well as organising and attending various author events across the UK - while boxing regularly for charity. Passionate about inspiring a love of the written word in young people, he spends a lot of time in schools across the North West, encouraging literacy, story-telling, creative-writing and how good old fashioned hard work tends to help good things happen.

Rob Parker recommends
The Man on the Street (2019)
(Jimmy Mullen, book 1)
Trevor Wood
"Superb and going to make serious waves. Love it."
A Wash of Black (2020)
(DI Erika Piper, book 1)
Chris McDonald
"Like a hammer in the dark, A Wash of Black is a debut that hits you with full force and leaves you breathless and stunned. DI Erika Piper is a compelling, hard-as-nails creation, trawling every dark Mancunian corner for the murderer of a movie-star – and as the tension and stakes rack up, so do the bodies and surprises. A superb tale deftly told with a human touch and a real eye for detail, with a true ‘just one more chapter’ moreishness, A Wash of Black announces Chris McDonald as a superb new voice not just in the Northern literary scene, but across the national crime landscape. Highly recommended."
The Secret Voices (2022)
(Coral Lael Mystery, book 1)
MJ White
"Touchingly compassionate, desperately exciting and achingly well-written...a superlative crime novel."
