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.

Undercurrent

Undercurrent – 442 pages (when paperback)

 

When Ryme Lady, a freighter, disappears with all hands and a sixty million cargo, American hard man Art Lemman and English ex-lawyer Gavin Blair investigate for the International Maritime Bureau.

The ship’s owners are fighting insolvency and are fearful of a predatory attack on the stock of their company by Carl Klodinsky, an American shipping tycoon. But has Ryme Lady sunk at all? Or is it an insurance scam, an attack by pirates or an act of international terrorism? On whose side is Claudine, Klodinsky’s chic French-American assistant who exposes Gavin’s vulnerability.

Through Paris, Singapore, New York, London and West Africa, an air of menace and death threaten the investigation and only when Cerne View, a huge cargo vessel is attacked and arrested in West Africa, do Art and Gavin realise that something far more sinister is involved … nothing less than an international outrage involving The White House and 10 Downing Street. Despite their uneasy relationship, the investigators have to work together against the most deadly of enemies … time!
