AUTHOR

J.B. Turner

J.B. Turner - a former journalist - is now an Amazon #1 bestselling author. His books have sold over one million copies. He is best known for the Jon Reznick® series of action thrillers. His next book, HARD HIT, the 6th Jon Reznick thriller, is out on 25 April 2019.

His influences and favorite authors include: James Ellroy, Richard Stark, Hunter S. Thompson, Lee Child, James Lee Burke, George Orwell, Jack Kerouac, Henry James, Harlan Coben, Thomas H. Cook, John Grisham, James Patterson, John Buchan, and Michael Connelly.

His latest book, REQUIEM (Thomas & Mercer), was the third in the American Ghost® series of action thrillers. The series features protagonist Nathan Stone, a former CIA covert operative who had been critically wounded, and everyone thought was dead. But behind closed doors, he was rehabilitated by a highly secretive government organization known as the Commission, given a new identity and appearance, and remoulded into a lethal assassin. His brief: to execute kill orders drawn up by the Commission, all in the name of national security. The Commission owns him, but Stone knows one wrong move could turn him from loyal asset to hunted man.

He also wrote the Jon Reznick novella, Gone Bad (No Way Back Press), and the Deborah Jones™ crime thrillers, Miami Requiem (No Way Back Press) and Dark Waters (No Way Back Press).

His books have conspiratorial elements and themes throughout them. His work can often be described as thrillers; his books cover sub-genre categories including assassination thriller, suspense thriller, political thriller, crime fiction, military thriller, and, in the case of the Deborah Jones books, mysteries.

He has a keen interest in geo-politics.

He loves music. He occasionally blogs. He listens to everything from Beethoven to The Beatles, The Cure to Bach. And everything in between. Occasionally writes. Loves films. Well, good ones. One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Heat, The Godfather, The Offence, The French Connection, Payback, It's a Wonderful Life, Manhattan, Annie Hall, Hell or High Water, Sideways, The Fighter, Ladybird, As Good As It Gets, Wonder Boys, The Deer Hunter, All the President's Men, Babette's Feast, and a personal fave, Animal House (what's not to like?).

He was born in Edinburgh, Scotland. He is married with two children.

He is represented by Mitch Hoffman of The Aaron M. Priest Literary Agency, New York.
