Colin Wade

I live in Oxford with my wife and two children. An avid reader myself, I also enjoy playing golf and holidays with the family. I started writing in 2016 after moving to part time working, giving me the time to realise my ambition of getting a book written and published. I have published three books, The Lost Years (Matador) in 2019, Plutus (Matador) in 2020 and Deadly Connections (The Book Guild) in 2021. My fourth book The Sins of the Father will be out in September 2022. I am in the process of writing my fifth book with the working title The Devil's Code, which should be out in 2023.

I previously worked as a full-time programme manager with Thames Valley Police for thirteen years and use some of this knowledge gained in my writing. I am currently working in admin at Oxford High School.

Deadly Connections

Sept. 28, 2021

Sarah Braintree is the best Chief of Police that Jersey has ever had but the day after her success is celebrated by the government, someone starts killing people.

Cryptic notes left on the victims’ pique Sarah’s interest in the case, and she breaks all protocols by deciding to lead the investigation herself.

As the crime spree intensifies, Sarah’s previous credibility is slowly eroded, and her ineffectual team seems powerless to stop the perpetrator terrorising the island.

Will Sarah ever catch this killer and find out why they are doing it?

Are you ready to play the game of Deadly Connections?

The Sins of the Father

Sept. 28, 2022

Halle Jacobs has just landed her dream job as an investigative reporter for an up-and-coming TV production company. She is immediately thrust into an investigation about an unusually high number of childhood cancer cases on an East London housing estate.

Ably assisted by her researcher Todd, she is confronted by a community that, rather than pulling together under these distressing circumstances, is torn apart by intolerance and racism.

Halle progresses the investigation, identifying two family firms that were involved in the construction of the housing estate back in the 80s. Both firms are run by strong patriarchal figureheads. As she delves deeper into the two families, Halle comes across a mother in prison for murder, a set of ruthless business men, a suspicious money trail and a daughter determined to find out what is going on between the two firms.

Will Halle crack this case and expose The Sins of the Father?
