About Stephen Puleston

I write mysteries and thrillers.

I have published the first three novels in a series featuring Inspector Drake based in North Wales and also the first in a series with Inspector John Marco based in Cardiff. The first Drake mystery is called BRASS IN POCKET and the second WORSE THAN DEAD. The third, AGAINST THE TIDE was published at the end of 2014.

My second detective is Inspector Marco who comes from an Italian/Welsh background and he lives in Cardiff, the capital city of Wales. The first Inspector Marco novel is called SPEECHLESS and the second and third in the series will be published in 2015.

You can read about my writing and about Wales, one of the most beautiful countries in the world, on my website -

I was brought up on the Isle of Anglesey, off the North Wales coast and went to school in Holyhead. After a degree in Theology from London University I decided to train as a lawyer and returned to work in the practice run by my father on Anglesey. For many years I worked as a lawyer in a small practice representing clients in the criminal courts and doing divorce work all of which has given me valuable raw material for my novels.

I still live and work in North Wales where the Inspector Drake novels are set.

Review by: Christine Pointer on Sep. 26, 2013 :
I really enjoyed this book. Especially as I know North Wales well having lived there for 16 years. The writing is very good and you don't guess the end until very near the end which is how a good mystery should be.
