JAKE NEEDHAM has twice been a finalist for the Barry Award for Best Original Paperback Mystery of the Year and as well as a finalist for the International Thriller Writers' award for Best Ebook Thriller of the Year.
He is an American screen and television writer who started writing crime novels when he realized he really didn't like movies and television all that much. Since then, he has published twelve popular international crime novels in two different series: The Inspector Samuel Tay Novels, and The Jack Shepherd Novels.
"Jake Needham’s the real deal," says Brendan DuBois, New York Times #1 bestselling author with James Patterson of THE SUMMER HOUSE. "His characters are moral men and women struggling in an increasingly immoral world, his suspense and plotting are top-notch, and his writing is exquisitely fine. Highly, highly recommended.”
Jake and his wife have lived in Thailand for nearly thirty years. You can learn more about both Jake and his books at JakeNeedhamNovels.com.
