About Max China
Max moved from London to the seaside town of Leigh on Sea, Essex, while still a boy. Grammar school educated, he has worked in shipping, stonemasonry, sales and construction. In 2009, he started work on a novel, fulfilling a lifelong ambition.
Published 21 November 2013, The Sister charted in the UK best sellers for Kindle top 100 of all books in January 2014. This led to a listing in the Top 50 Crime Writers to Watch in the same year and received a Gold Medal award from HarperCollins site Authonomy.
Buoyed by its success, Max has completed further novels blending crime, mystery, suspense, horror and the supernatural in his unique style.
His second book, The Life and Times of William Boule, is a non-stop action, adventure and crime thriller, following the lives of several characters introduced in The Sister. The story is complete in its own right - you don't have to have read the earlier book to enjoy it. Released late summer of 2014, it was well-received, gaining excellent reviews.
The third novel, The Night of The Mosquito, is an exciting blend of crime, mystery and psychological thriller. Set against an apocalyptic backdrop, it's a roller-coaster ride of a story!
The fourth book is an expansion of his short story, Don't Turn on The Light.
Other works in the pipeline include another three Miller stories, The Man in Brown, Finding Her, and The Resurrectionists.
He can't write quickly enough, but at the same time, he recognises the need to develop great characters, produce good, solid storylines, and quality writing. He hopes those of you who've enjoyed his books so far will continue to do so.

What readers say about The Sister:
UK Kindle Reviewer. “There are so many different words I could use to describe this book, unique, compelling, addictive, poignant, eerie, moving, and I could still go on. But if I had to pick just one word to do this book justice, the choice would be simple. Outstanding.”

Following the major players through time, their interactions on more than just the obvious levels, creates an entrancing and wondrous tale of loss and finding. Enjoy!”
