Author Profile

Nick Elliott

Country: United Kingdom


"Nick Elliott delivers in spades when it comes to fast-paced, intelligent, international thrillers. You feel, smell and touch every authentically crafted location; you’re expertly drawn into a maze of shadows and sinister organizations and characters where nothing is what it seems. This really is thriller writing of the highest calibre.”

Craig Russell, award-winning author of the bestselling and critically acclaimed Jan Fabel and Lennox crime thrillers.

Nick Elliott was born in Oxfordshire. He has worked in international shipping all his adult life and handled dozens of claims, casualties and other assorted maritime mishaps throughout the Far East, East Med and Black Sea. Many of these cases provide inspiration for his series of Angus McKinnon thrillers.

He worked in Hong Kong and Tokyo for twenty years and Piraeus for a further eight. During the course of an interesting career he has been sent to the Pacific island of Nauru amidst fears of a typhoid epidemic; hid in a storm drain during an inter-gang shootout in Guam; in Georgia investigated the theft of a cargo of ethyl alcohol tracing both cargo and the armed gang to North Ossetia; and overseen the welfare, disembarkation and migration from Hong Kong to the UK of 1,002 Vietnamese boat people rescued by a British ship in the South China Sea.

He is a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers.

Nick’s first book, Sea of Gold, is available from Amazon in e-book and paperback formats:

Dark Ocean, his second thriller in the Angus McKinnon series, is due to be published on Amazon in August 2017.
