Robert Parker is an exciting new voice in crime fiction. The 29-year-old father of three who lives near Manchester, England, is readying for national paperback publication of his book, “A Wanted Man” this month. The book has been downloaded over 10,000 times, prompting eBook publisher, Endeavor Press to publish the paperback version due out this month. —
“A Wanted Man” is the first book of an eight-part series. The main character, Ben Bracken is a Captain in Her Majesty's Royal Army and finds himself dishonorably discharged, disillusioned and downtrodden. He then escapes from a prison to settle old scores and finds himself in the middle of a world of organized crime in working class Manchester, which is, "the Chicago of England" adds Parker. Bracken investigates a notorious gang known as “The Berg,” who are exactly the type of hoodlums he swore to protect his country from.
Robert Parker has degrees in law and in film and media production, which gives him a unique perspective in storytelling. He currently writes full time, while also making time to encourage new young readers and authors through readings and workshops at local schools and bookstores.
The book has been gathering enough momentum that Linda Langton of Langtons International Agency, has hired veteran Hollywood agent Thomas Harmon to assist in the television and film rights.
"A page turner and stunning crime thriller set in the grittier parts of Manchester, so visually, ideal for television or film," said Langton.
