More About the Author

Colin Knight was born in Manchester, England to working class parents - his father painted houses and drove delivery trucks; his mother worked in a retirement home. He and his four siblings shared a small three-bedroom house on an unremarkable city owned housing estate ten miles from the city center. From seven to sixteen years old, he held newspaper and milk delivery jobs, which he did, before school.
Educated to state standards, at an experimental public high school for boys, Colin graduated at sixteen with minimum credentials. At eighteen, he joined an American international company as a general office helper. By twenty-three Colin had developed an aptitude for product management and marketing. His career with the American company provided work assignments in Italy and Switzerland, as well as travel to many European countries.
In 1987, Colin immigrated to Canada to work for a distributor of the American company. In 1991, he took a chance and quit work to attend university. By 1997, Colin had obtained a BA Honors Degree in Political Science, and a MA Degree in International Relations.
In 1999, after a brief return to the private sector, Colin joined the Canadian Federal Government. During his fifteen-year government career, Colin worked for the Department of Foreign Affairs, the Canadian International Development Agency, the Public Safety Department, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, and most recently, he was a Senior Policy Analyst in the Federal Privy Council Office. Government work and assignments took Colin to Europe, Asia, Latin America and the US. Colin retired from the government in 2014 to focus on family, writing and life.
Colin lives in Ottawa, Canada with his wife, Barb, and their three children, Tessa, Duncan and James. In between housework, groceries, shuttling children and general family support, Colin is working on his next novel. Squash, soccer, learning to play the guitar, and quality beer relieve stress and writers block.

This is the tale of a lost soul who through cruel circumstances spirals downward in his life, doing more depraved things with each successive career move. Knight takes us on a journey of self-indulgence and high drama as our anti-hero struggles to survive. The tale wends its way around the globe with stunning details of locales and supporting characters that make you feel you are there and know the players. Though Alan, the main character, does despicable acts, you feel empathy for him and hope in the end he will redeem himself. But wait, even there – another twist. Enjoyed the ride, thank you Mr. Knight

Format: Paperback
Some People Deserve to Die is Colin’s Knight’s fast paced first novel that has us following a young man as he escapes from a life he can no longer tolerate and survives by any means possible. Mr Knight skilfully guided me through the emotional complexities of this damaged man helping me understand and even sympathize with what I would usually consider abhorrent behaviour. Mr Knight’s kept my attention throughout, his vivid descriptions of the underworld of illegal drugs and corruption, albeit disturbing, will not easily be forgotten.

What a wonderful surprise! The title grabbed my attention and the fast paced, globe-hopping story kept me reading. Mr Knight paints real worlds with few words and pulled me into a pretty dark side of life that, despite some of the sordid goings on, was full of people (good and bad) that felt real. The title warns the reader - and a warning it is - that this isn't a slick story of white-hatted heroes and black hatted villains but a story where even the sunniest paradise glows with shades of grey. I hope there's a more to come!

People Deserve to Die is a great read and you will not want to put this book down. It is loaded with twists and turns and has a nail biting storyline. I started reading this novel on the commute bus ride to and from work and I couldn’t put the book down. Wait until you get to the shocker ending. This book is definitely worth the read. Looking forward to a sequel.

Two thumbs up!!!
