Thomas Mogford is the author of a series of crime novels about a lawyer from Gibraltar named Spike Sanguinetti. The first in the series, Shadow of the Rock, was one of the Spectator‘s ‘Books of the Year’, and was shortlisted for the Crime Writers’ Association ‘Dagger’ award for best debut novel. Both the sequel, Sign of the Cross, and follow-up, Hollow Mountain, were shortlisted for Crimefest’s ‘eDunnit’ award, while the fourth book, Sleeping Dogs, was selected as one of the Guardian‘s ‘Best Holiday Reads’. The latest Spike Sanguinetti novel, A Thousand Cuts — published in 2017 and due out in paperback in February 2018 — was described by The Sunday Times as ‘a traditional and thoroughly satisfying crime novel’.
