This is the page where I outline the influences which have impelled me to write Crime Fiction. 

In The Blood
My greatgrandfather, grandfather,father and sister all served in the Metropolitan police, and one of my cousins was a senior forensic scientist at New Scotland Yard. You might say I broke the mould. But I was weaned on Moriarty's Police Law, and the mould never quite left me.

As a short arms expert in the Met. Grandad found himself covering the Home Secretary during the notorious 'Battle of London'. He went on from the Thames Water Police, to the Flying Squad which he led at one point. An amnesty was declared for the duration of his funeral. The Police Band led the cortege, police officers and criminals in procession to and from the Brompton Oratory, after which they all drank a toast to his memory. The Amnesty ended, and the criminals dispersed. He would have loved it!
I've now received a copy of the two books my Canadian cousin - Brendan - has had printed containing loads of press cuttings from Grandad's career - including ones I remember avidly devouring as a six year old in the basement front parlour of his house in Sidney Street [the Chelsea one, not the East End one] - and a smaller book containing his diaries.  Fascinating.

My liaison role between the Education Department and Greater Manchester Police, during which I helped to set up the Police Schools Liaison included initiatives to raise drug awareness, reduce muggings - on and by - pupils and students, reduce the carrying of knives by pupils, and pilot community initiatives to improve reporting of racist incidents, and diverting pupils at risk of becoming snared in youth gangs.  Don't  be surprised if some of this appears as a sub text to Tom Caton's burgeoning workload.

Literary Influences.
I have read for as long as I can remember, and devour as many classical and mainstream books as I do crime novels. But If you're wondering what genre the Tom Caton novels belong to - these are some of the crime and thriller writers I most admire:
Ted Albeury, John Le Carre, Gerald Seymour, John Grisham, Graham Green, John Le Carre, PD James, Peter Robinson, Ian Rankin, Patricia Cornwell, Kathy Reichs,Tess Geritson, Ed McBain, Michael Connelly, Andrea Camilleri, John Harvey, Harlan Coben, Karin Slaughter, Ian McKewan, Val McDermid, Susan Hill, Henning Mankell, Donna Leon, Stieg Larsson, ...and many, many more.  Make of that what you will!
