When Danny Shanklin woke up in a strange hotel, he never expected the rest of his day would be spent running for his life.

Today will be the worst day of his life—and maybe his last.

Framed and forced on the run, Danny sets out on a heart-pounding race against time to escape and track down the terrorists who set him up… and make them pay. But with 500,000 CCTV cameras, 33,000 cops, 9 intelligence agencies, and dozens of television news channels hot on his trail, how long can one innocent man survive?With only his tech support friend, the Kid, for backup, Danny sets out on a nail-biting odyssey though the panicked city streets, in a desperate bid to escape, protect the people he loves, and track down the terrorists who set him up – and make them pay.

But with 500,000 CCTV cameras, 33,000 cops, 9 intelligence agencies, and dozens of TV news channels all hot on his tail, just how long will THIS one innocent man be able to survive?

Interview part 4 of 4:


What does your Danny Shanklin think about you? 

Would Danny want to hang out with you, the author, his creator?

I know he’d enjoy a chili or two. But I like to wash mine down with a beer and Danny doesn’t drink anymore. We share the same taste in music too: Townes Van Zandt, Dylan & Shawn Mullins. But I think Danny would find my home life  – which I love -too restricting for him. He’s much more of a restless soul.


What was the hardest scene in Hunted to write, and what was the easiest?

The toughest was a scene where Danny realizes that he has failed to save someone very dear to him. Protecting those weaker than himself is right at the core of his character, so I needed to judge the impact of such a failure just right. The easiest part of Hunted to write was the sequence of scenes where Danny is being chased by hundreds of cops through central London in broad daylight. I basically ran him through all the streets I know best,  past places I used to work and hang out, so I very much felt that I was there with him every frenzied step of the way.


When can we expect the continuation of the Danny Shanklin series to be available in the US.  Can you give us any hints of what’s up for Shanklin.

I’ve just finished Wanted, the sequel to Hunted. It will be out in the US next year. All I’ll say is that life doesn’t get any easier for Danny. Maybe I should be kinder to him in the third book? Instead of having him on the run, I could just describe him having a really nice meal and watching TV?
