Welcome to John Hardy Books

On this website are details of all the books so far published, including 5 free stories you can read: 6.10 from Darlington, The Othona Valediction, Double Jeopardy,The Helmet, Full Circle and The Wake.

Andalucían Mysteries and More Andalucían Mysteries were the first to be published, and are short stories of crime and mystery set in the Axarquía, the part of Spain where I have lived since 1994. They were republished in one volume, Malaga Mysteries, which I still sell directly, but is no longer available online. These 2 books have also been translated into German and Spanish.

The next book, Twisted Tales, had some stories set in Spain but also some set in other parts of the world. East Side Stories is set down the east side of the UK, from Hadrian’s Wall to the Thames.

Sedella was a very different book, being a history of the village where I live from prehistoric times to the present day, a mix of historical facts illustrated by fictional stories.

The Queen’s Agent was different again, being the first full length novel I have published, a spy story set in the time of Elizabeth I, set in London and Santiago de Compostela.

Death in the Sun and other stories returns to the short story genre, with 18 stories set once more in southern Spain.

Driven by Conflict, published in 2018, is a collection of stories about people caught up in conflicts of various kinds. Click here for more information.

Suffer the little Children, published in 2019, is another full length novel, set in Teesside in the winter of 1946/7 and is a story of crime, suspense, intrigue and romance. Click here for more information.

The pictures on this site are of myself and the locality where I live and work (and a few of where I have lived in the UK).

Wendy and I hope you enjoy the books.
