About Chris Lofts
Hello, I'm Chris Lofts, the author of Helix Genesis and Helix Nexus, the first two instalments in the Nathan Helix thriller series and Life Untenable (my first standalone novel) and the newly released Restitution.
Previously, I worked as an IT Project Manager and I started writing when commuting and "living" in hotels while away with my job. I came relatively late to writing but always felt I had a book or two in me. I love action, psychological and thrillers so it seemed natural to me to write in the same genres. Now, having hung up my project plan, I spend most of my days writing and marketing my work which is a labour of love.
I live in Herne Bay which is the county of Kent in the United Kingdom. Together with my wife Corinne we are the human slaves to our two cats (Monty and Moss) and a family of chickens. In between writing, I love to walk, read, listen to podcasts and audiobooks, cook and get out on my Triumph Bonneville.

Titles By Chris Lofts
When technology expert Mo Archer's father Roland goes missing he is unwittingly dragged into a Nazi art swindle 80 years in the making.
Mo tracks the last known location of the retired art lecturer's phone to a place that makes no sense. When an old family friend calls, equally desperate to find his father, Mo is drawn in deeper. Emilia Carducci unfolds a decades-old family feud linked to a rediscovered masterpiece that has set the London art world and media abuzz.
Mo refuses to see the link between Roland's disappearance and the painting until he uncovers what his father left behind. Fuelled by fear and armed with his discovery he turns to the only other person he can trust, his assistant Sapph. Ex-military, retired MMA champion and with an unhealthy interest in the dark web, Sapph gets to work.
A high-stakes race against time ensues to find Roland while picking through and peeling back the layers of treachery to right a historical wrong.
Major Nathan Helix has survived twenty years of service to his country at the cost of one brother and almost the second. Doctor Gabrielle Stepper, wife of the Chancellor and venerated scientist credited with defeating the virus, craves normality and anonymity. Her dream is shattered along with her reputation when she is accused of murdering of her lover.
Helix is assigned to investigate. Stepper’s revelations about a genetically engineered pathogen point to a spurned former colleague with a score to settle. Confronted by his own demons, Helix fights for his and Stepper’s survival in the shadow of a government conspiracy, a lust for revenge and the threat of another global catastrophe.
