Bio

Keith Nixon has been writing since he was a child. In fact some of his friends (& his wife) say he's never really grown up. Keith is currently gainfully employed in a senior sales role for a UK based high-tech company meaning he gets to use his one skill, talking too much.

Keith writes crime and historical fiction novels.

His crime novels are published by UK based indie house Caffeine Nights. Keith's highly regarded black comedy crime debut, The Fix, garnered much critical acclaim and was followed up in November 2014 Russian Roulette where the enigmatic, ex-KGB tramp, Konstantin Boryakov got his own platform to cause trouble and mayhem again. Konstantin 3 - I'm Dead Again - was published May 2015. A fourth novel is under construction.

Keith has also a highly successful historical fiction novel to his name - The Eagle's Shadow, where one man resists the might of Rome. Based on historical fact The Eagle's Shadow has sold over ten thousands of copies and ridden high in the UK kindle chart since its publication. The second in the series, The Eagle's Blood, is available now.

As well as writing Keith reads far too much and is a reviewer for the respected Crime Fiction Lover and Big Al's Books & Pals.

The Fix

Murder. Theft. Sociopaths. And Margate. Just another day in banking then...
It’s pre-crash 2007 and financial investment banker Josh Dedman’s life is unravelling fast. He’s fired after £20 million goes missing from the bank. His long-time girlfriend cheats on him, then dumps him. His only friends are a Russian tramp who claims to be ex-KGB and a really irritating bloke he’s just met on the train. His waking hours are a nightmare and his dreams are haunted by a mystery blonde. And to cap it all, he lives in Margate.

Just when Josh thinks things can’t get any worse his sociopathic boss — Hershey Valentine — winds up murdered and he finds himself the number one suspect. As the net closes in Josh discovers that no one is quite what they seem, including him, and that sometimes help comes from the most unlikely sources...

Part fiction, part lies (well, it is about banking) and excruciatingly funny, THE FIX pulls no punches when revealing the naked truth of a man living a life he loathes. This is a crime fiction novel with a difference...

Russian Roulette

Meet Konstantin Boryakov, the enigmatic ex-KGB agent and tramp from the best-selling debut novel, The Fix. He’s a man with a dark history and darker future.

Trouble has a habit of seeking out Konstantin, whether he wants it or not. Starting with small time drug dealer Dave the Rave from the moment he arrives in the seedy seaside town of Margate where he’s supposed to hide, to Nikos the loan shark and Fat Gary, all round idiot.
Then there’s the so-called good guys, the councilors and lawyers who are worse than the criminals.

But Konstantin isn’t alone, despite his wishes. Fidelity Brown, aka Plastic Fantastic, dildo wielding dominatrix who has her own mélange of secrets and lies, and nightclub owner Ken who’s connected to all the
wrong people, help the Russian with the heap of problems delivered to his doorstep.

Cue deception, murder, mayhem as Konstantin settles into his new life. Margate will never be the same again.
