David McCaddon was born in North Wales and now lives in Cheshire. He is a retired IT systems consultant and has worked in computing for over 46 years, specialising in Law Enforcement Systems Development across police and prisons worldwide.
David is also an award-winning playwright, having had a number of his plays performed over the past 14 years.
His first books in the trilogy Following Digital Footprints and In Digital Pursuit are fictional crime thrillers set in the north-west of England and North Wales.
The Final Footprint is the last book in the crime trilogy.
Cybercriminal Tim Ridgway is on the run, having made a daring escape from HMP Dinas Bay in North Wales. Now with a new stolen identity and thousands of miles away, has he finally escaped from Midshire Police?
Digital Pursuit continues the story of criminal Tim Ridgway, first encountered in Following Digital Footprints. Tim has now been sentenced to ten years for his credit card and identity theft crimes and is taken to HMP Dinas Bay in Wales to serve his sentence.
Following digital footprints is a detective story with a difference. Different sections of a police force are investigating cases of hire car theft, credit card fraud and identity theft using traditional methods supported by ever more sophisticated IT systems. The technical details are described with a light touch and this adds to the enjoyment of the novel. A satisfying read.
