Undercurrent – 442 pages (when paperback)

Now Available

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!

“So hard to put down that one awaits his next with high expectations.”
