About Steve Dockray

A former local authority accountant, property manager and puzzle compiler, Steve Dockray wrote three novels in the 1990s. Drawing on his experiences in the world of finance, the books were supposed to be serious, but the humour kept creeping in.
Despite some very favourable comments from publishers (“Enjoyed “The Borough”. If it was by Dick Francis they'd publish it tomorrow and not change a word”, one agent told him), he could not get the books into print.
The era of internet publishing and e-readers brings new possibilities.
Steve lives in South Devon with his wife.

Review by: Tony Spencer on March 9, 2012 :
A very good read, that I will keep on my iPad and reread, I'm sure. Didn't realise this had been written in the 1990s until I finished it and read the author's bio. I immediately reread it and was even more enjoyable. So many ebooks are sloppily written and littered with literals, in dire need of editing; this book was very professional, I can recall only a couple of typos, a pronoun instead of an adverb and a missing quotation mark. The writing was tight, descriptive, setting the cast and scenes beautifully, even the weather. The plot was excellent, the main characters engaging and natural, even humorous. The book was so good I bought Mr Dockway's 2 other books (have just read the Borough which is just as good). Very well worth reading, just bear in mind they are not quite contemporary. I hope the stupid publishers offered these books and turned them down at the time are ashamed of themselves.
