About Dominic Adler


I write thrillers, with forays into sci-fi and speculative fiction. My 'Cal Winter' series is published by Lume Books.

My favourite authors include Len Deighton, Jack Higgins, Gerald Seymour, Tim Willocks, Philip Kerr, Mark Timlin, Michael Moorcock and Mark Lawrence.

In another life I was a policeman, serving in London's Met for 25 years; Special Branch, covert policing, anticorruption and criminal intelligence. I've helped investigate terrorists, spies and bent coppers; my beat was in places you don't read about in tour guides. I write a Substack on policing, which you can read here.

My other interests include tanks, beer, horology and movies.
