Hello, and welcome to the web pages of E.S. Thomson.

I am a writer of historical fiction and historical crime fiction. My new book, THE BLOOD is published by Constable on 5th April, 2018. It’s a dark and gothic tale of murder and ambition set on a decayed and ancient floating hospital ship, and amongst the seedy docklands of 1840s London. THE BLOOD is the third adventure for cross-dressing apothecary Jem Flockhart. Book one, BELOVED POISON was shortlisted for the Scottish Crime Book of the Year Award, and Book two, DARK ASYLUM long-listed for the CWA Historical Dagger Award.
