Black Violet is the gripping American-based crime debut by screenwriter Alex Hyland.

On the surface, Michael Violet is a legitimate San Francisco car dealer. But appearances can be deceiving. In reality, he's a talented pickpocket, lifting the keys to the city's most luxurious cars.

He's kept his criminal life secret from his journalist brother, Jon, who's made a career out of exposing corruption. But when Jon is killed, Michael uses his talents to track down his brother's killer.

Driven by guilt and revenge, Michael finds himself being forced into the role of the hero, whether he likes it or not.

But turning from thief to hero isn't going to be as easy as he'd hoped...

About Alex Hyland

Born in London, Alex pursued a writing career that took him to Los Angeles where he created shows for Disney, Universal and NBC.

After five years in LA, and the constant request for him to come up with a vampire show that was `kind of like The Office', Alex decided to write something purely for his own pleasure.

The result is his first novel `Black Violet'. He is currently writing the second novel in the series.
