Breaking News – December 2016

Following issues with my publishers, I have reached an amicable arrangement under which we have parted company and I have had the rights to all my books returned.

 

That is the good news!

 

On the downside, it means that for now, you cannot buy them through bookshops or outlets like Amazon and Kindle. However, I am involved in certain discussions and hope that before long, all the books will become available again.

 

Watch this space!

 

Additionally, in the pipeline is Dead Fix, the follow-up to Hard Place and I plan a proper launch of Tables Turned which never happened last July as planned. More details as things develop will appear on my Facebook page.

 

Insult to Injury

Palm-Beach-County-Courthouse-Florida

On 7th December 2000, Douglas and Bridget Stewart were in Florida with their daughter Lara then aged 3 months. While Bridget was putting Lara into their rented car, an elderly local woman drove into the back of it – causing Bridget what turned into a very serious spinal injury.

Insult to Injury is an exposé of the scandalous way in which the American litigation system operates. Outsiders see it as a bonanza for persons seeking compensation with jackpot-sized damages paid to the undeserving. This book shows the very different reality. It reveals the vicious war and the no-holds barred approach adopted by insurers such as Allstate who misled the jury and falsely castigated the Stewarts in resisting the claim.

Only after a second lawsuit was the full extent of the ruthless chicanery of Allstate and its attorney revealed. Insult to Injury covers the story of the first trial and the exciting chase for the truth during the second action commenced in West Palm Beach, Florida. Written by an experienced author and former London lawyer, this book is a revealing insight into modern day America where, in the greedy pursuit of profit, integrity has disappeared.
