Exclusive offer to UK and NZ residents



Drawing on his own lauded police career as a detective and covert specialist, Ian crafts gripping crime novels with unfettered authenticity.


Who is Ian Austin?

Ex police officer, detective, covert specialist and private investigator, Ian Austin, knows more about crime than most. His own police career almost came to a confronting end in Southampton on Christmas Eve, 1991, when a deadly beating left him with a life-limiting brain injury. Recovering through diagnosis of his terminal injury, depression and eventual breakdown, Ian began writing crime fiction in 2010.

"If you’ve ever thought about making a sea change, you’ll be fascinated by the story and ways of working of Ian Austin – ex-cop turned full-time novelist. His first self-published book ‘The Ideas Man’ has now been followed up by 'The Agency.'


If you love writers like John Grisham, watch this man!"

 Robyn Pearce, WebTalkRadio


"Excellent New Zealand crime fiction. His ability to communicate with his audience and allow them to see, hear, feel touch and taste what is happening on the page is as uncommon as it is satisfying."

Graham Beattie. Beattie's Book Blog 

"I could add it to the 'trophy shelf' along with the few other titles I think are utterly remarkable."
