Cynan Jones

Writer of short novels

Everything I Found on the Beach

In the aching cold where night bumps into day, Hold hears noises that indicate he isn’t alone. Out at the edge of his nets a rudderless dinghy is thumping against the rocks, prey to the ebbing tide.

What he finds there changes everything.

Everything I Found on the Beach


“A gripping thriller…” John Barnie, Planet

“ …achieves the rare feat of combining a poignant and lyrical picture of everyday lives with elements of a thriller…a richly-imagined and constantly engaging novel.” Linda Ruhemann, New Welsh Review

 “Jones writes with an acute observation of human nature and the world he inhabits.” Steve Dubé, Western Mail



“Is Jones as good a writer as they say he is? Without a doubt. Edgy, elegant prose combined with masterful characterisation and plot. This novel is everything I had hoped for, and more. Read it, then read it again.” R.J. Ellory
