James P. Sumner writes a series of action thrillers about a former soldier-turned-hitman named Adrian Hell.
He's worked in every type of office environment you can think of – insurance, banking, mobile phones, telesales … you name it, he's done it.
In July 2013, he began work on his first novel and eventually self-published his debut thriller, True Conviction, on Amazon, where it has now been downloaded over 300,000 times.
He is a member of the Crime Writers Association, and saw his fifth novel, A Necessary Kill, selected as a winner in the 2015 Kindle Scout Program, winning him a publishing contract with one of Amazon's imprints.
Episode 75, release date Monday 7th August, 2017
