In The Sweet Taste of Death, Tom Pierce has produced an intriguing and absorbing tale which is more than just an account of a retired police superintendent's holiday in the South of France. Matthew and his wife, Beth, become accidentally involved in a dramatic attempt to smuggle priceless historical artefacts out of France. Blundering into the middle of these events Matthew is forced to re-examine his priorities and his commitment to his wife, after a life spent fighting crime, often to the exclusion of all else. The beautiful but savage scenery and extraordinary story of medieval sacrifice provide a stunning theatre for this satisfying read, which is highly recommended as an absorbing book which successfully combines the suspense, history, travel and detective genres.
After Art College and a career in graphics, Tom Pierce changed course, entering the police service. He attended many high profile murder cases as cameraman and artist, but the images he witnessed left him troubled. He took to writing, a cathartic process that led to a creative urge to write full-time, using his experiences as a valuable resource.
