Tony Kent is a criminal barrister, founder director of Chiltern Kills festival, and bestselling author of the Dempsey / Devlin series. First published in 2018 with Killer Intent – a Zoe Ball Book Club pick for ITV – Tony has since published a further four books in the series, including the Richard and Judy Book Club legal thriller Marked For Death. Tony’s novels call upon his experiences as one of the most in-demand criminal defence barristers in the country, with a particular specialisation in allegations of organised crime. This role has brought him into frequent and close professional contact with Scotland Yard, the National Crime Agency, MI5, Interpol and even the FBI, all of which allows him to bring a striking level of authenticity to his work.
