The Man on the Street

‘I can safely say it will be huge … an excellent read’ PATRICIA GIBNEY, author of the DI Lottie Parker serieS

‘Intricate, expertly paced with a shocking conclusion … Jimmy is a character you root for from page one’ M. W. CRAVEN, author of THE PUPPET SHOW

When homeless veteran Jimmy thinks he witnesses a murder in Newcastle, the police refuse to believe him. He’s not quite sure he believes his own eyes. Then he sees missing persons posters matching the description of the man he saw killed, and he realises he wasn’t mistaken. But how do you catch a killer when nobody believes a murder has been committed?

Together Jimmy and the dead man’s daughter decide to take matters into their own hands and hunt down the murderer themselves. They soon realise it will be a far more dangerous task than they could ever imagine.

But Jimmy has one big advantage: when you’ve got nothing, you’ve got nothing to lose.

I can safely say it will be huge ... flying through it. An excellent read
Patricia Gibney
What more do you want from a debut than a unique protagonist and a cracking plotline? A smart, thought-provoking crime read with bags of heart and humanity
Mari Hannah
The story races along at a cracking pace, lots of tension in the twists and turns, and Jimmy is hugely engaging and complex. It's a rare skill to develop a sympathetic character with such a chequered history for whom one so wants a happy ending. A deeply satisfying read
Harriet Tyce, author of Blood Orange
Intricate, expertly paced with a shocking conclusion. The dialogue is on-point, the narrative is flawless and Jimmy is a character you root for from page one. Believe me when I say this, Trevor Wood has a bright future in the world of crime fiction. Simply superb
M W Craven, author of The Puppet Show
A superbly written trip through the shadows of my hometown with a unique protagonist as a tour guide
Robert Scragg
Superb and going to make serious waves. Love it
Rob Parker
Brings a fresh voice and a totally original perspective to the 'detective as outsider'. A homeless man, traumatised and violent, makes an unusual hero, but a hero with wit and courage who will win readers' hearts
