I'm a bestselling crime and historical novelist, and the winner of the Diamond Dagger of the Crime Writers Association, the Gold Crown of the Historical Writers Association and many other awards. I've written nearly fifty books, listed here, three of which have been televised.

Royal Secret HB reduced

My latest novel is The Royal Secret, the fifth novel in the Marwood and Lovett Restoration series. It's a Sunday Times Top Twenty bestseller.

'Always riveting… With all his customary deftness and skill, Taylor weaves a colourful, complicated plot involving royal secrets, foreign spies in London and a mangy lion…' Nick Rennison, Sunday Times

'One rereads a Taylor sentence not because his meaning’s unclear but simply to enjoy it afresh. As one can do with his story as a whole... a pleasure from start to finish' Andrew Rosenheim, Spectator

'His characters feel like living people who face real problems in a strange yet instantly recognisable vanished world. Historical crime doesn't get better than this' Mark Sanderson, The Times Crime Club Star Pick.

In the UK, signed copies are available from Waterstones (a special edition with bonus material), Goldsboro Books, and Rossiter Books. It can also be found at other good bookshops, as well as on Amazon.

And now I am at work on the next novel in the series.
