David Hewson

David Hewson's novels have been translated into a wide range of languages, from Italian to Japanese, and his debut work, Semana Santa, set in Holy Week Spain, was filmed with Mira Sorvino. Dante's Numbers is his thirteenth published novel. David was born in Yorkshire in 1953 and left school at the age of seventeen to work as a cub reporter on one of the smallest evening newspapers in the country in Scarborough. Eight years later he was a staff reporter on The Times in London, covering news, business and latterly working as arts correspondent. He worked on the launch of the Independent and was a weekly columnist for the Sunday Times for a decade before giving up journalism entirely in 2005 to focus on writing fiction. Semana Santa won the WH Smith Fresh Talent award for one of the best debut novels of the year in 1996 and was later made into a movie starring Mira Sorvino and Olivier Martinez. Four standalone works followed before A Season for the Dead, the first in a series set in Italy. There are now nine Costa titles published in numerous languages around the world including Chinese and Japanese... and Italian. David followed these books with three acclaimed adaptations of the award-winning Copenhagen TV crime series The Killing. In 2014 he debuted a new series set in Amsterdam with The House of Dolls. With A.J. Hartley he has also authored two popular adaptations of Shakespeare's Macbeth and Hamlet, originally for audio now out in ebook. In 2018 he won the prized Audie for best original audio work for Romeo and Juliet: A Novel, narrated by Richard Armitage, an Audible exclusive. In 2018 he published a much-anticipated tenth book in the Nic Costa series, The Savage Shore. In 2019 he released Devil's Fjord, a standalone mystery set in the Faroe Islands. 2020 sees the release of Shooter in the Shadows, a standalone thriller set on a remote private island in Venice.
