Meet A.B. Patterson
A.B. Patterson is an Australian writer who knows first-hand about corruption, power, crime and sex. He was a Detective Sergeant in the WA Police, working in pedophilia and vice, and later a Chief Investigator with the NSW Independent Commission Against Corruption. His multiple award-winning, debut novel, Harry’s World, introduced the jaded and flawed PI Harry Kenmare. Harry’s Quest was the sizzling, award-winning sequel in the PI Harry Kenmare series of novels. The third novel, Harry’s Grail, is in progress. The Harry Kenmare short stories, some previously published in the USA in Switchblade magazine, were collected together and published in 2020 as Harry Kenmare, PI – At Your Service. He has had other short stories, all crime related, published in other anthologies. In a non-fiction vein, he was a contributing editor to a volume dealing with the trauma for male survivors of English boarding schools published by Routledge, Men’s Accounts of Boarding Schools: Sent Away. For his fiction, his hard-boiled, gritty, and noir writing style has been likened to that of Raymond Chandler and Ken Bruen. He’s a massive fan of both of them. Credit: A.B. Patterson.
