Dr David Jackson
A lecturer in the Department of Computer Science has published a crime novel.
Written by Dr David Jackson and published by Macmillan, Pariah is set in New York and follows detective, Callum Doyle, as he battles against the unknown forces who are trying to isolate him from society by killing anyone he goes near.
David said: “The initial reception of the novel has been excellent and the translation rights were bought by Germany even before it hit the shelves in the UK, with the acquiring editor saying that it was the best debut novel she had read in many months.”
The book will appear under the title Ausgestossen in Germany in August this year.
The debut novel received Highly Commended in the Crime Writers’ Association Debut Dagger Awards .
