Richard Hoskins - the Story so far


I am the bestselling author of The Boy in the River (PanMacmillan 2012) which was Gold Winner at the prestigious Crime Writers' Association Dagger Awards 2013. The book tells the story of my involvement as ritual expert in some of Britain's highest profile criminal cases. Interwoven with those is my personal journey starting in Africa as a young man, through to recent cases. The two strands collide in a terrifying ordeal, but I will leave you to read about that in the book!


I also write feature pieces for national newspapers and I am a regular commentator on television and radio.

I am currently working on another book. Watch this space :)
