Welcome to the website of the author and thriller writer Mark Leggatt.
I’m the author of Names Of The Dead, The London Cage, and The Silk Road, a series of international thrillers which weave fact and fiction across the globe.
Praise for The Silk Road; “As usual, Leggatt hits the ground running and doesn’t stop for breath until the page after the final one. The writing is sharp, the approach no nonsense and the author is far too well informed on international skulduggery for comfort.”
Bestselling author Douglas Skelton
Praise for The London Cage; “Ticks along with the precision of a fine Swiss watch. A worthy follow-up to Names Of The Dead with all the slick dialogue, action and intrigue we’ve come to expect from Leggatt. A cracking read.”
International award winning author Neil Broadfoot
Praise for Names Of The Dead : “Mark Leggatt is an exciting new voice, and in ‘Names Of The Dead’ he delivers an intense, page-turning, fast-paced thriller that is blistering with action and frighteningly real. The story is told with slick, snappy dialog against a backdrop of international landscapes, and in CIA technician Connor Montrose, we have a tough, crusading hero to root for, in an entertaining blend of Bourne, Bond and Indiana Jones.”
Bestselling author Ava McCarthy
