Alex Grecian is the national bestselling author of the “Scotland Yard Murder Squad” novels, including The Yard, The Black Country, and the forthcoming The Devil’s Workshop.


After leaving a career in advertising, working on accounts that included Harley-Davidson and The Great American Smokeout, Alex returned to his first love: writing fiction.

He co-created the long-running and critically acclaimed graphic novel series Proof, which NPR named one of the best books of 2009. One of the Proof storylines is set in the 1800’s and inspired Alex’s debut novel The Yard. He has also written an original “Murder Squad” e-book, The Blue Girl, and an original graphic novel, Seven Sons, as well as a multitude of short stories, both comics and prose, for various anthologies. He lives in the Midwest with his wife and son. He is working on the sixth novel of Scotland Yard’s Murder Squad.


In the Press

Grecian brings his graphic and dramatic skills to bear in a harrowing psychological drama, narrated with a visual accuracy that is the stuff of nightmares.

- Booklist

With his artistry of painting a sense of place and time, Grecian delivers a compelling, twisty story driven by fascinating characters. The Saint of Wolves and Butchers makes breathless, gripping, up-all-night reading.

- Nora Roberts

#1 Bestselling Author

A new master of historical mysteries. Grecian builds suspense like a master architect designing a skyscraper, leaving no detail out. One of our favorites of the year so far.
