J D Weston is an English Crime, Thriller and Mystery Author. He was born in London, England. His Writing style is fast-paced and action-packed. He is best known for his hugely successful Stone Cold Thriller series. Before becoming a full-time writer, he worked in construction, in IT, and as a photographer. He spent the last decade of his career living in Dubai before moving back to the UK, where he now lives with his wife in rural Lincolnshire.
Harvey Stone is also the central character of The Stone Cold Thriller series, a 12-book long tale of crime and revenge that spans continents and shapes compelling characters that keep readers turning the pages. Somewhere in the middle of writing the Harvey Stone sagas, he penned three books that feature ex-special forces operative Frankie Black. Dishonourably discharged from service for a crime he did not commit, the widower makes his way through life doing what the army taught him to do best – finding missing people.
His latest work, The Harvey Stone series, hit the top #100 in Amazon and is still going strong, with more books planned for release in 2021. The British detective crime series is, in his own words, his proudest work to date.
If you are looking for a great faced-paced read then Weston is right up your street. If you like to follow a series then the Stone Cold Series is the best place to start. Weston is great at no-nonsense writing and doesn't just write to fill a hole, every word builds into the story. He does very well at not letting a huge amount of personal opinions through and is generally politically neutral sometimes leaning to the right.
Overall a Great Novelist and worth the time and effort.
