Most of the Thomas Berrington Historical Mysteries are also available as audio-books. I commission the audio version of each book on release of the eBook and paperback, and in general they will appear around 3-4 months later. You can view the available titles below and click through to hear a sample without any cost.


A killer who can’t be stopped. A request that can’t be refused.
Moorish Spain, 1482. Englishman and physician Thomas Berrington is an unwilling friend to the Sultan of Granada, the most powerful man in the kingdom of al-Andalus. When bodies start to turn up in the palace, each showing marks of a savage attack, Thomas is asked to investigate.

At first reluctant, Thomas is drawn deeper into the investigation when one of the Sultan’s wives is brutally murdered. The physician must team up with the eunuch Jorge to find the killer before they become his next victims. As they investigate, they find that nothing is as it seems and no-one can be trusted.

Al-Hamra, the red hill, and its inhabitants hold their secrets close. As Thomas begins to lay them bare his discoveries culminate in a battle not only for his own life, but for the lives of those he loves.

The Red Hill is the first book in the Thomas Berrington saga, a series of historical thrillers set in the final years of Moorish Spain. If you like breakneck pacing, medieval murder mysteries, and complex characters, then you’ll love David Penny’s political and cultural thriller.
