Meet Andy Griffee
‘I write crime thrillers set on various parts of the UK’s network of canals and waterways. Inspired by true stories, they follow the fortunes of divorced journalist Jack Johnson and the (as yet) unrequited love of his life, a young war widow called Nina Wilde. They are joined on their adventures by a border terrier called Eddie who lives with Jack on his 64 ft long narrowboat, Jumping Jack Flash. I hope the books will be enjoyed by anyone who loves reading Dick Francis, John Buchan or Kate Atkinson’s Jackson Brodie series.’
