Philip Cox lives in Hertfordshire, England with his wife and two daughters. He had a long career in banking until 2009, when he took a break from financial services to be a stay-at-home father. Between changing diapers/nappies he wrote 'After the Rain', which was published in 2011. 'Dark Eyes of London' was published early the following year, and 'She's Not Coming Home', set in Boston, MA and New York, late in 2012. 'Something To Die For', which introduced the maverick LAPD Detective Sam Leroy, followed in 2013, and the sequel, 'Wrong Time To Die', in 2015.
In between these two excursions to Los Angeles, Philip wrote the London-based thriller, 'Don't Go Out in the Dark'.
Philip returned to New York City for his next latest thriller, 'Should Have Looked Away', and early 2017 saw the release of the third Sam Leroy book, 'No Place to Die'.
He is now busy working on his ninth book, slated for release late 2017/early 2018.
