Brian McGilloway is author of the critically acclaimed Inspector Benedict Devlin Mysteries and Lucy Black series and the standalone novel The Last Crossing. He was born in Derry, Northern Ireland. After studying English at Queen’s University, Belfast, he took up a teaching position in St Columb’s College in Derry, where he became Head of English.

His first novel, Borderlands, published by Macmillan New Writing, was shortlisted for the CWA New Blood Dagger 2007 and was hailed by The Times as ‘one of (2007’s) most impressive debuts.’  He has gone on to write five further Inspector Devlin Mysteries, and four novels in the Lucy Black series.  The first of these, LITTLE GIRL LOST, was a New York Times Bestseller and UK No. 1 Bestseller.  His novels have been shortlisted for a number of other awards, including the Irish Book Awards and the Theakston’s Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year.
