About the Author

Rob is married to Karen with two grown up daughters. He is originally from South Wales and after moving around with work settled in North Lincolnshire where he’s spent the last twenty-two years.

Like all good welsh valley boys Rob worked for the National Coal Board after leaving school at sixteen and went to University at the tender age of twenty-three when the pit closures began to bite. Since then he’s worked in a variety of manufacturing and consulting roles both in the UK and abroad.

It took Rob twenty-four years to write his first book. He only became serious about writing it when his dad got cancer. It was an aggressive illness and Rob gave up work for three months to look after him and his mum. Writing Those That Remain became his coping mechanism. After he wrote the book his family encouraged him to continue, so not being one for half measures, Rob got himself made redundant, went self-employed so he could devote more time to writing and four years later the Mechanic Trilogy is the result.

When he is not writing, Rob is a frustrated chef with a liking for beer and prosecco, and is known for occasional outbreaks of dancing.

Rob is delighted that all three books in the Mechanic Trilogy will be published with Bloodhound Books in 2017.

Those That Remain  –  22 June

In Your Name            –  13 July

Pay The Penance     –  8 August

 Rob now writes full time and has recently completed his fourth novel titled Faceless.

My Review

When I had finished Those That Remain I was itching to get my hands on In Your Name the second in the Mechanic series. Was it worth the wait? Holy Hell Yeah!  Good Grief, once you begin reading this your stomach will be lurching from side to side until the end.

It begins with a funeral that Detective  Lucas is attending .. it is obvious from this that he will be in for a tough time even though the occupant of the grave is so far unknown.

Hell bent on catching the Mechanic after previous encounters with the killer it becomes the whole mission in his his life. The Mechanic is cold, calm and calculating but written in such a way that I am fascinated by their actions and full of admiration on the thought processes. Always one step ahead of Lucas it makes for a thrilling chase.

This is dark, disturbing, gruesome and absolutely wonderful for a crime fan! It’s difficult to rave about a book that requires a certain level of mystique to be retained.

If you are of a sensitive nature some of the bloody scenes may be vomit inducing but stick with it because it is SO brilliant. Rob Ashman has excelled himself, the first book had a lot to live up to but the deliciously sleazy undertones of Vegas make this an absolute belter. And that ending aaaaaaaargh .. I am counting the days until the next book which I am delighted to say I will be reviewing!

My thanks to Rob and Sarah at Bloodhound books for my copy which I read and reviewed voluntarily. If I could give more than five stars I would!
