A young, gritty and sometimes edgy writer




After the grisly discovery of a mutilated body, the small community of Greenville is held in the terrifying grip of a serial killer.  Author Jason Denton immediately falls under suspicion, and while Sergeant Underwood is determined to prove his guilt, no matter what how he has to do it, the relatives of those being killed aren’t so keen to wait for justice. Caught in the middle is Donna Harp, a young constable partnered with the sergeant. She isn’t convinced the author is guilty, and is determined to catch the killer, whoever he may be, but is she being swayed by Denton’s charm?




Rival gangsters, a smuggled package, and what seems like an entire sector of space wanting to hit him.
If Step Velkin had known what awaited him he would never have answered his brother’s latest plea for help. Now he’s stuck with an inheritance people would fight to avoid, not claim, and no way out of the mess his brother has left him.  All he can do is hope his naval training is enough to keep him alive, and his ship flying, as he pays off A Brother’s Debt.

Another young, talented thriller writer




The police have Internal Affairs departments. British Intelligence has John Purkiss, the Ratcatcher. 


Purkiss’s job is straightforward. Track down agents of the intelligence services who are taking kickbacks, committing crimes, or otherwise abusing their positions. And bring them to justice.  Straightforward doesn’t mean easy… After a renegade British former spymaster, Fallon, is sighted in the Baltic city of Tallinn on the eve of a historic summit meeting between the Russian and Estonian presidents, Purkiss is despatched to investigate, and uncovers a conspiracy that threatens to tear Europe, and the world, apart. But Purkiss has personal reasons for going after Fallon. Four years ago, Fallon was sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder of Purkiss’s fiancée, a murder Purkiss himself witnessed. Now, in an atmosphere of treachery and sudden violence, as the countdown begins to a potentially catastrophic conflict between Russia and the West, Purkiss must keep his desire for revenge under control for the sake of the world’s – and his own – survival.
