William Sutton was born in Scotland in 1970 and appeared in pantomime at the age of nine.

He learned blues harmonica from his Latin teacher, drove to California in a VW beetle and studied classics at Oxford. Besides writing radio plays and short stories, he has acted in the longest play in the world, tutored the Sugababes and played cricket for Brazil.

After living in Brazil and Italy, teaching English and singing in ice cream shops, he has returned to the UK where he teaches Latin and plays accordion.

Lawless and the Devil of Euston Square is a literary mystery set beneath the smoggy cobblestones of Victorian London. The Scotsman newspaper said:

William Sutton's first novel is a fine, extravagant and thoroughly enjoyable example of Victorian Crime fiction. It somewhat resembles Boris Akunin's Fand&ograve;rin international bestsellers, and there is no good reason why Sutton's shouldn't also do very well.

One of the joys of the novel is the language employed by Worm and his friends, part authentic Victorian slang, part thieves' cant, and part - I rather think - invented ... The action moves with dizzying speed from the highest quarters in the land to the vilest slums and low dives of the teeming city. … A tale of this sort requires fine villains, and Sutton obliges us with a couple … This is a world enveloped in smoke and fog. The fun is fast and furious.

We are told that William Sutton is now at work on another Campbell Lawless mystery. If he can maintain this standard of invention, this mastery of linguistic tone, he is on to a winner. (Allan Massie, The Scotsman)

The Morning Star called Lawless and the Flowers of Sin “a marvellous read – but harrowing, and the author shows his readers little mercy. Sutton doesn't tell his readers what to think - but he does tell them what to think about.”

Readers have loved the Euston Square urchins, the Oddbody Theatricals and their slang, a whole range of London patois of the day: parlare and backslang, costerslang and argot.

What's next? Performances from Victorious Festival to Portsmouth Bookfest. Programming Darkfest, a cross-media arts festival in Portsmouth, with a Day of the Dead night and Dark Songs.

Brilliant second effort from William Sutton! Strange, tangled, and researched to the hilt! You are THERE in London, 1863. Some argue it's good to have read the first Campbell Lawless novel: "The Devil of Euston Square," which is also most exceptional. Watch this author!
