Local Author’s Debut Novel

Looking for a different Christmas present for someone who’s difficult to buy for, or someone who simply loves a good book?


‘Bang Bang, You’re Dead’ is the debut novel by Evan (aka John) Baldock, an ex-Metropolitan police officer. A fast paced and thrilling crime novel laced with dark humour, this is the first novel written in the UK about a vigilante Granny. Despite her actions, reviewers seem to love Granny Gloria!

John is a member of the Judd Staff yoga group and has named some of the characters after his fellow attendees. The novel’s editor is Gail Williams, a retired Judd English teacher - so it is very much a Judd affair!

John is offering Judd fair-goers a first edition, signed copy with a personalised message for £8.99, with £1.50 from each book sale donated to the JPA.


To buy this book please pay £8.99 to

"Really enjoyed this story, would make a great film. Everyone needs a Glo in their lives..."

"Loved every minute of this book!
It’s truly gripping whilst not being too serious or dark. I can’t wait to see what Evan comes up with next."

"Absolutely fantastic book. I like to think there’s a little bit of Gloria Jones out there waiting to avenge the wrongs of the human race."
