View full details

Synopsis

‘Whoever did this wanted to make very sure no one lived to tell the tale.’

Money, murder and love on the high seas

In the world of international shipping, the rules are blurred and the oceans lawless

When instinct tells maritime claims investigator Angus McKinnon that a wave of frauds must be connected, he thinks it’s just business as usual. Instead, he uncovers a ruthless conspiracy born of greed and the lust for power.

As he starts to unravel a trail leading from the post-Soviet drabness of a Black Sea port to a sweltering anchorage in the Gulf of Thailand, a devastating explosion in the Indian Ocean changes everything.

Facing down terrifying childhood memories, torn between two very different women and doubting old friends, McKinnon must navigate a precarious path between secretive government agencies, shady syndicates and avaricious crime lords towards an unpredictable endgame.

Gambling everything on his faith in one man, can McKinnon beat the odds and come out on top?

A gripping page-turner, Sea of Gold draws the reader into a world of extremes, the casual affluence of the super-rich contrasting with the dignified poverty of the desperate. Meanwhile, McKinnon’s two loves – the enigmatic Claire and his devoted, long-term lover, Eleni, vie for his attention.

This debut thriller from Nick Elliott is packed with intrigue – if you love your action spiced with suspense, make Sea of Gold your next read.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT SEA OF GOLD

"Elliott ticks all the boxes in this fast-paced yarn, with a keen eye for descriptive detail and solidly drawn characters. The first-person narrative, complete with ironic asides, is the perfect vehicle for a thoughtful and witty style that draws us swiftly into the shoes of its protagonist, a credible and consistent character."

"The sense of place is utterly authentic. We are taken to far-flung locations - some exotic, some seedy - by an author who has not just visited them but has lived and worked in these places. Nick Elliott has an effortless elegance in his writing, and an ability to create characters who feel real. The story zips along at a fine pace, and the result is a gripping and immersive thriller."

"Angus is good company as he unravels a very twisty plot and discovers an unexpected level of determination (stubbornness?) in getting to the bottom of the mystery and catching the villains, all the while trying to be loyal to his fiery Greek girlfriend while fighting his attraction to a woman from his past."

When a junior colleague is murdered, Amy’s fragile equilibrium is shattered. She suspects a client’s fraud links Ed to the killing, but is her paranoia working overtime?
As Ed tries to discredit her, Amy fears for her job, her sanity and her life. But she’s a tough professional, not a quitter, and somehow she must find a way to fight back...

Synopsis

Dead Secret: A Tony Gabriel paranormal mystery thriller

"It was obvious from the day he was born that the Gabriel boy took after his mother in every way. He would be a marked man from birth to death . . ."

Investigative journalist Tony Gabriel inherits a bizarre mystery when he is left the research papers and books of a long-dead Cambridge historian - and a human skull. With no clue to the meaning of this mysterious legacy, Tony puts his years as a reporter to use to investigate who he really is - and is stunned by what he uncovers.

"Suddenly, all the rules of his life seemed to have been broken at once."

Tony's investigations lead him to The Chadwick Foundation - a wealthy and secretive institution whose beliefs in the paranormal both repel and attract him. Are they just rich, powerful people playing an elaborate game, or have they truly gained paranormal powers to penetrate the mystery of the future?

Eve Canning is the keeper of The Foundation's secrets, a powerful and enigmatic woman whose regal beauty turns Tony’s search for the truth into a very personal quest - and his life and beliefs upside down.

And she seems to know more about Tony than he knows about himself. Is he from an ordinary suburban background, as he believes? Or is he descended from the Bourbon Kings and Queens of France - possessing royal blood in his veins and inherited psychic gifts?

"You see more than ordinary people. It's in your blood."

Tony is bewildered by the horrifying conspiracy he begins to unravel. Can human heads really be used to predict the future of entire nations? Why would the immensely wealthy Chadwick Foundation pay $7 million for the skull of Soviet President Leonid Brezhnev? Is the British government and its intelligence services involved? When Tony witnesses the Home Secretary die in an elaborate sex ritual at a Belgravia dinner party he knows he has gone too far to back away.

He also discovers that Eve's form of lovemaking is addictive - and has a price. She is a sadist who specialises in erotic asphyxiation. And she has revived a ritual form of sex from French revolutionary times that literally makes death an aphrodisiac.

"Are you afraid of me? She asked. Yes, he said. . “.

Tony has more to fear than just the Chadwick Foundation. Sinister French scientist César Casimir - expelled from the Pasteur Institute under a cloud - wants to make Tony the subject of an experiment to prove the existence of precognitive powers - but it is an experiment conceived in hell, where success means death.

“I am the keeper of a great secret. I have been looking for someone worth sharing it with.”

When Tony is initiated by Eve and her paranormal cult into the ultimate terrifying secret, he has a decision to make that can cost him his life: he can achieve a form of immortality but only by risking everything.

What Reviewers said about this paranormal mystery thriller

"This is a fascinating, and spine-chilling tale told by a Master of the craft of writing and is one of the few genuinely 'unputdownable' books I have read."

"Dead Secret is a story that has it all: a terrific plot that interweaves eternal youth with alchemy and conspiracy theories; money like you've never dreamed of, sex exactly as you've dreamed of, and death as it's never quite been portrayed before, and that portrayal is a nightmare."

"Dead Secret" contains several scenes of highly unusual and graphically-depicted sex. Don't try this at home - unless you're sure what you're doing.”

This novel is a delight from start to finish - covering everything from mediums, through telepathy, clairvoyance, apparitions, Jung and synchronicity, the I-Ching, numerology, physiognomy, out of body experiences - not forgetting a secret, dangerous sexual rite which leads to such intense pleasure that it can trip the mind into a higher state of consciousness - and even kill.”

Synopsis

"I thought I’d knocked him out, but in a flash he’d turned on to all fours and was crawling swiftly, spider-like, back towards us. He still held the knife, so I set fire to the handle. The wood flamed and he hissed in pain but didn’t let go. It was all turning rather awkward.”


With the swinging sixties staggering, shamefaced and flustered, into the slightly staider seventies, life for Stella, isn’t going as smoothly as she’d like. As an ordinary person, who happens to have some extraordinary abilities, it's frustrating to find that something as simple as holding down a job, throws up unexpected hurdles.

She'd be a darn sight better off if she could ditch the conviction she knows best which, together with a chronic inability to keep her mouth shut and her nose out of other people's business, has led her more than once off the straight and narrow into the dodgy and dangerous. Plans for a safer future, include setting herself up in business, squashing her over-active conscience and steering clear of risky and unpleasant. Unfortunately, the best laid plans can lead to the darkest places.

Recent review: 'Beautifully written, this book will grab readers on a visceral level. Stella is both heroine, victim and villain, and one of the most compelling characters I have encountered in some time. For the Love of Books.'

Book cover image for So What Do I Do?: A Crime Thriller from the High School (So What! Series Book 3)
View full details

Synopsis

This is a thriller of the “How&Why’d they do it?” category and the book stands alone with its intriguing trail of catch-up between the police and the criminals. It's in the "Columbo style" of a mystery where you see the crime committed then watch all of the recriminations unfold around it while detective Shantra pieces clues together and tracks down the felons.

A crime that goes badly wrong in its execution, and goes on to tragically affect the local school community, produces a trail of chaos. It’s a winding trail that the reader must try to follow and which two ex-pupils from the school, one a detective and the other his violent quarry, take around Britain only to end at its shocking conclusion.

In So What Do I Do?, the third novel in the So What! series, we see the return of a few of readers' favourite characters from the previous books. Constable Nigel Shantra returns as a detective, determined to bring to justice Kyle Crabbe, the psychotic adversary of his from the first So What! novel. And just what does a class of cheeky chimps, and a large black spider monkey, have to do with the traumatic events surrounding Hodgson's Hide - the legacy of retired Technology teacher Gil Hodgson?

Molly is back also, now as an experienced teacher and a new mum. She's trying to come to terms with the major changes planned for Birch Green High School, while she and Oliver have dramatic plans of their own that could seriously affect both their careers. Still anxious to save the natural environment and its wildlife, Molly is also troubled by the plight of the neglected children of the world and climate change. Is she ever going to settle down to a blissful life of domesticity with her family when so many problems insist on grabbing her attention?

When a conspiracy to defraud the local populace, devised by two apparently respectable but unscrupulous pillars of the community, goes disastrously wrong it results in an intriguing case for detective constable Shantra to solve. The traumatic events that ensue will prove to affect the haplessly incompetent pair of criminal perpetrators, hired by the swindling conspirators, as well as the teachers and pupils of Birch Green High School.

Recently promoted Molly discovers that the pressures of helping newly qualified teachers, like James Gibborn, to cope with unruly classes bear no comparison to the eventual strain that she and her colleagues experience when an ex-pupil of the school decides it’s time for payback. This bullying past enemy of Nigel Shantra and his brother, Adam, will prove to be far more ruthless and cruel than anyone could have imagined in order to achieve his criminal ambitions. But he is just as likely to turn his attention towards anyone who upsets his plans, with terrifying consequences for those who won’t comply with his wishes.

THE MIRACLES AND MILLIONS SAGA



Two minds, two bodies, two hearts, one soul.



On the day that Dorothy Lyle turns forty she is still single and living a boring, routine existence of a nine-to-five life. This has never been part of her great life plan, and is a niggling and constant source of frustration.

#HUMOUR #IRISH MAMMIES #CRAZY VISIONS

That all changes, along with her life, forever, when she unexpectedly wins a fortune on the lottery and is suddenly propelled into the realms of the super-rich elite. Everything that money can buy suddenly comes within reach for her.



And while Dorothy likes the idea of being rich beyond her wildest dreams, she soon finds that it will bring its own set of problems. A set of problems compounded by her unique and amazing ability.



In the old days when she had been just plain old Dorothy, it had been easy to hide her psychic powers. But now, rich beyond belief, it’s going to be so much harder. When her dreams and visions start to become more vivid and frightening than usual, she wonders if any amount of money can protect her from her own gifts.



Since the age of nineteen she has been aware that a shadowy presence travels with her. This being provides solace and protection whenever the going gets tough, yet seldom provides a straightforward answer to her questions. What do the dreams and visions mean, and why does one particular strange and dangerous man keep appearing to her? The universe is talking to Dorothy, but is she ready to listen?

Book 1 of the Miracles and Millions Saga. A story of hope.

“Marian and Charlie McClung are the best crime-fighting couple since Jennifer and Jonathan Hart. CRIMINAL KIND, the third in this wonderful series, is like taking a vacation. A vacation with murder.

Synopsis

After shooting and killing his nephew, a gunman runs wild in a London park. What drives Edward to commit such heinous acts? Who will survive yet another of his moments of madness? The action takes place in Jersey, Cornwall, Manchester, London and other places not of this world. Set in 2015, Random Bullets is a crime thriller with a paranormal twist.

If I tell you that I was disinherited by my crazy father, you might understand why I feel a degree of sympathy for Edward. I was interviewed in February 2016 by two BBC Radio 4 producers as part of their Analysis programme on the subject of Inheritance. They’d heard that my book, Random Bullets, deals with the subject of disinheritance and its aftermath.

"Action-packed, thought-provoking, a real ride. I couldn't put it down," "crime with a twist," "An insightful look behind the many faces we wear, and how burning resentments can take you into madness and murder," "Kinetic... really zips along at a pace, I was really drawn in" are just a few of the reader reviews that Random Bullets has received.

Random Bullets is available on Amazon in paperback, Kindle, and audiobook editions.

Reeling from a catalogue of disasters, flaky sleuth Amy travels to Prague to help an old man recover a Picasso painting last seen in 1939.

Will the New Messiah or the Anti-Christ be born?

In the year of Satan, 2066, the structure of the physical world is cracking, and inexplicable paranormal forces are interfering with humanity. The Trinity Investigation Organization, or TIO—a paranormal detective society—is the last protection against the demons, evil spirits, fanatical criminals, and sadists who are trying to destroy the world.

The 92-year-old Pope is pregnant. Although he hasn’t undergone any medical procedures, he carries a human fetus in his abdomen. Is this a case of self-cloning, or is it a mutation? Is this an immaculate conception, or is it Satan’s work?

Claire, Travis, and Prescott, the members of the Capuchin Trinity Team of TIO, are tasked with uncovering the truth about this unusual case and resolving the mystery of whether the Pope is carrying the new Messiah or the Antichrist, and who did it. Their job is to go beyond the physical world into the mind and the spiritual realm, discover a thousand-year-old connection, perform an exorcism, and fight the devil Zepar, while evading the villains who keep trying to assassinate them.

Synopsis

The Glass Harmonica: A Julia Franklin crime mystery

Julia Franklin is an international concert pianist who is losing her nerve. Thousands of adoring fans pack the concert halls on both sides of the Atlantic. But Julia can’t shake off her nightmares or the fear that her career may be over. What Julia doesn’t know is that stage fright is the least of her problems. She has no idea that she is heir to a 200-year-old bequest worth a billion dollars - enough to bankrupt America's oldest bank when the bequest it holds in trust matures.

Miles Bartholemew, son of the president of Bartholemew Equity and Trust, is trying to atone for his wild youth by working in the public defender’s office in Sacramento, California, helping kids get off crime charges. Miles is stunned to learn on TV news that his grandfather, Nathaniel Bartholemew, has blown his brains out at the age of 91. Miles hasn’t had any contact with the family for six years but now he receives a letter from his father in Boston. It contains a $1,000 dollar bill and a single line of shaky handwriting:

“I must talk to you urgently. Please come home.”

His father tells Miles that the family bank was subject to a financial experiment by U.S. Founding Father Benjamin Franklin. Over 200 years, the small account left by Franklin has amassed more than a billion dollars in interest - and the account is due to mature in two months’ time. It will wipe out the family bank - unless Miles can find the beneficiaries of the Franklin trust and deal with them - permanently - before time runs out.

“There is a way we can use this information if you've got the balls for it,” Charlie said. “We can use it to stack the deck in our favour.”

Miles finds himself in a remote town, engaging the services of an unsavoury ex-cop turned private eye to find all the Franklin heirs still living in the U.S. so that he can pay them a visit.

Julia receives disquieting news from her agent about a distant relative in the States - a warehouse manager who claimed descent from Franklin. He died as the victim of a bizarre “accident”. Other people are victims of equally mysterious “accidents” - a woman teacher drowns in a boating lake. An academic researcher has his neck broken by a falling window.

Julia is contacted by Emil Roland, head of a secretive society dedicated to the Glass Harmonica - a keyboard instrument invented by Benjamin Franklin, and reputed to have the power both to heal sick minds - and to drive listeners insane. Roland explains that his secret society is one of the Franklin heirs and offers his protection. Julia also seeks help from an exotic and dominating music therapist, Valentina Dresden.

Miles Bartholemew arrives anonymously in Britain and visits the east end to engage seedy private detective ‘Dixie’ Dixwell. The detective uncovers evidence of crime but before he can pass it on, he too falls victim to a mystery “accident”.

Miles contrives a meeting with Julia and flatters her. The charming young Bostonian invites her to meet him for a visit to a piano factory in the East End of London. But when she arrives Julia, too, is victim of a near fatal accident - almost falling into a vat of molten glass.

Julia tries to get the London police to act but the by-the-book inspector she talks to insists there is no evidence of foul play. Julia retreats to the safety of Valentina Dresden’s home and a super-exclusive country club for the super wealthy. Here Valentina inveigles her into a bizarre human hunt - before persuading Julia to stand up to the man who is threatening her by hunting him down.

She has no inkling that the secret society protecting her has been waiting and watching in the shadows for two centuries for its moment to fulfil an ancient destiny by arranging fatal ‘accidents’ for all the beneficiaries of the Franklin bequest and claim the prize.

Synopsis

Murder on the Sky Ride, Fiction/Mystery

This novel is full of action and good detective work. It also gives a picture of the diverse ethnic and cultural makeup of Texas. It gives a private view of two Texas families, one whose members range from dope smuggler to successful attorney-politician, and the other ranging from a hot-head Chicano activist to a Texas Ranger.

Some of the characters: Gar Garcia, Texas Ranger under special orders of the governor; Steve Pearce, 21, ex-convict, trying to stay out of trouble but not succeeding; Johnny Diaz, almost, but not quite, bad to the bone; Burke Masters, big man with big money; and Hawknose, career criminal.

The story is set in San Marcos, Texas, at an amusement park located where the San Marcos River, as a giant spring, wells up out of the ground cool and clear. San Marcos is a real city but events and characters portrayed there are fictional. Real people are mentioned, such as Lyndon B. Johnson and Jimmy Carter, but are not characters.

Historical notes about the Texas Rangers are accurate. The mammalian diving reflex described in the novel is accurate, as well as the homicide exclusion in insurance policies, and oil field technicalities, but events surrounding them are fictional.

The story takes place in 1978 when detectives had to work harder than now. They had two-way radios, telephone beepers, but no cell phones or personal computers. Most police departments had no computers at all. Police reports were laboriously typed out by hand over several carbon copies, the last of which were barely legible. Police work was real work. Go along with Texas Ranger Gar Garcia as he works through clues, diversions, and deception.

Synopsis

Conjuring for Beginners: A Rosa Daniels crime mystery

Rosa Daniels takes time off from her job as features editor of Woman Today and travels to Switzerland to bury her father, a charismatic confidence trickster. Ferdy Daniels died alone and penniless in a remote Swiss village, after a lifetime of high level swindles, newspaper headlines, and spells in jail.

Rosa attends his funeral but only from a sense of duty. Masked men burst in on the funeral service at gunpoint and open the coffin - the first of a series of incidents in which victims of Ferdy, including intelligence services, disrupt Rosa’s formerly cool well-ordered existence.

Rosa has inherited her father’s good looks. But to her this is merely a burden – every man she meets wants to add her to a conquest list - one more thing for which she blames Ferdy. In reaction to Ferdy’s wild ways, Rosa has become very careful – perhaps too careful.

An unreliable obituary of Ferdy appears in The Times, claiming that he was a spy, an international businessman and the author of a book manuscript entitled Conjuring for Beginners. Rosa discovers to her horror that she is the target of violent people from Ferdy’s past who are convinced that she has inherited the manuscript.

Rosa is mugged on the train and her flat is ransacked. Police and intelligence services are reluctant to help her as they, too, believe she is in league with her dead father. She is blackmailed by retired MI6 officer, Harold Stainley, into helping him by meeting the retired head of the KGB, Vladimir Malakov, codenamed Wolf, in Britain to contact her about Ferdy.

Rosa sets about unravelling the mystery of Ferdy’s biggest con. She traces three people from Ferdy’s past who seem to hold clues.

Part Two - Ferdy

After leaving the Army, Ferdy Daniels conceives a dangerous plan. He knows of the obsession of KGB General Malakov to find a cache of stolen Nazi gold. He sets up a sting. But Ferdy’s plan goes wrong in a way no one could have foreseen. He is arrested by the Stasi on orders from Moscow, to be used as a pawn in exchange for two Soviet spies.

These events lead to Ferdy's biggest and most audacious sting which he practises on Britain’s Secret Intelligence Service. When SIS wakes up to Ferdy’s sting, it is time for him to disappear for good.

With her father's enemies on her tail, Rosa must unravel Ferdy’s web of deceits and intrigues herself, to stay alive. But to understand her father’s actions, she must learn to become as quick-witted and cunning as Ferdy. She must learn the art of conjuring.

While dealing with the anxiety of leaving her home and facing the people of the town, Emily is terrified by what is waiting for her outside that takes the shape of shadowy figures resembling her deceased students and the ghostly kids that she refers to as “the pales” that get closer to her with every step she takes. With her sanity in question, Emily seeks help from a psychiatrist, Paul Cusick, as she tells her story of being an educator of children that seemed unteachable to that fateful day in October.

Synopsis

The goal of the book is to inspire change to preserve the future for the United States of America. U.S. political history following World War II has been and continues to be altered, covered up and obliterated. Controlling history is to influence elections to serve the rich and powerful. All three branches of the US government have changed to serve the upper 1% and disregard regulations for the environment and general public protection such as the CDC and FDA. Reductions and elimination of social services for the poor, disabled, veterans, elderly and especially children have been targeted. The gap in wealth between the upper 1% and middle and lower classes has become enormous. Violations of moral and ethical standards and even many legal violations are tolerated for the rich and powerful and when found guilty of crimes the sentences are minimal. The lower and middle classes are held to much tighter codes and punished much more severely. Republicans want to create more restrictions for the non-wealthy and provide tax breaks for the wealthy. The wealthy are continually gaining more political control. Russia interferes in our elections and the President and Republican Senators accept contributions from them block investigations. Political campaigns costs eliminate the probability of winning by the non-wealthy that not selected by the wealthy. Our government has fallen under the control of the super-wealthy. The Republican controlled government is interfering with our daily lives to a much greater extent since the 1970’s. Women’s right and health that were improving with technology are backsliding. Integration and acceptance of all races is hampered with bigotry masked as patriotism and national security. The US Immigration Service has mistreated children and toddlers to punish parents for entering the U.S. Our President sides with dictators over our own intelligence services. Our President alienates our allies and acquiesces to our enemies. The fundamentalist Christians align with a President that brags on sexual abuses. The President nominates and Senate quickly confirms Supreme Court Justices with minimal investigation into their character. Knowing and understand America’s political history is crucial to our future. This book is to present evidence of political coverups and deceptions that have led to Donald Trump becoming President and this state of America.

Synopsis

*The editing mistake noted in a previous review of this book - namely a chapter appearing twice - has now been corrected. My apologies to anyone who bought this edition of the book.* Cole Jensen is a hack who makes good money writing bad books about women - until another hack comes along and usurps him, and he finds himself bankrupt and homeless. He is taken in and given a job by Constance Morrell, an icily beautiful woman who feels she owes him a favour.



Now home is a pool house at the bottom of the garden of a mansion in the Hollywood hills. There are many perks to his new living situation, but there are also drawbacks, not the least of which is being expected to entertain the odd, sinister women Constance invites to her nightly soirees. Cole's disturbing encounters with these women give him the inspiration to begin work on the novel he's always wanted to write - a social satire on the nocturnal activities of the rich and bored - but with the party games getting darker and the guest list dropping by the day, Cole must decide whether artistic integrity is really worth dying for.

Synopsis

From USA Today Bestselling Author, Robert I. Katz, comes a gripping techno-thriller, part of a multi-author series tied together by an interlocking cast of characters, all centered around the fantastic new promise of high technology and the endless possibilities for crime that technology offers, in a world where getting away with murder can be not only plausible, but easy…if you just know how.

Michael Foreman is a neurosurgeon, hard-working, successful and highly respected. In his spare time, he plays the piano.

Ralph Guthrie is a gamer. He makes his living playing online games. He also plays the clarinet. Ralph Guthrie and Michael Foreman are old friends and play together in an amateur jazz band.

But when Ralph is invited to play and critique a new video game, Virtually Undead, and suffers a fatal heart attack, along with nine other players, it quickly becomes apparent that virtual reality has reached out of the virtual world and into the real.

Why has a gas explosion rocked the city? Why has the New York sewer system repeatedly expelled raw sewage into the city’s waterways? And why does a single traffic light downtown persistently malfunction, causing cars to repeatedly crash?

Are all these things tied together? If so, how and why?

When the NYPD and the FBI ask Michael Foreman to consult, he can’t resist the challenge, and finds himself quickly drawn into the escalating mayhem of a video game that’s becoming all too real.

View full details

Synopsis

In need of a change of scenery, Detective Inspector Ricardo Arriaga boards Stella Australis for a trip around Tierra del Fuego. Before the ship reaches Cape Horn, the officer alone on the bridge is shot dead while sailing the ship a short distance across a bay. When other officers come rushing to enter the bridge, they found all doors leading to it locked from the inside. With most passengers and crew ashore on an excursion to a glacier and the runaway ship headed for shipwreck on the rocky coast, the captain is faced with overwhelming challenges.
The detective inspector eventually deduces that the death of the officer must be murder. By meticulously going through the evidence and interrogating the crew and passengers still onboard, he narrows down the suspects to nine – but who among them is the killer? The American CIA agent on a secret mission or his talented wife? The Lebanese profiteer or his Turkish mistress? The ship’s hostess and its assistant engineer getting rid of her bothersome ex-lover? The aloof British photographer affected by too many wars? The disabled Frenchman suffering from food poisoning? The ship’s doctor about to retire after having spent half a lifetime in the Middle East? And then there’s the most confounding question of all: how was the murderer able to escape with the doors locked from the inside?
There comes a moment when the detective inspector finds himself challenged by the explanations for the murders that have taken place on not only one but three different bridges, and one of these concerns his two fathers – the one he has never met and the one he is litigating.

SEA OF GOLD
MONEY, MURDER AND LOVE ON THE HIGH SEAS. IN THE WORLD OF SHIPPING THE RULES ARE BLURRED AND THE OCEANS LAWLESS
When instinct tells maritime claims investigator Angus McKinnon that a wave of frauds must be connected, he thinks it’s just business as usual. Instead, he uncovers a ruthless conspiracy born of greed and the lust for power.
As he starts to unravel a trail leading from the post-Soviet drabness of a Black Sea port to a sweltering anchorage in the Gulf of Thailand, a devastating explosion in the Indian Ocean changes everything.

A gripping page-turner, Sea of Gold draws the reader into a world of extremes, the casual affluence of the super-rich contrasting with the dignified poverty of the desperate. Meanwhile, McKinnon’s two loves – the enigmatic Claire and his devoted long-term lover, Eleni, vie for his attention.

But their claim on a mysterious cargo lost during the War is not as simple as they say, and the cold case abruptly heats up when Angus’s old friend and mentor is violently murdered back in Greece.
Haunted, obstructed and plagued by self-doubt, Angus soon finds himself trapped in a web of international intrigue that draws him to the typhoon-lashed South China Sea and the shocking discovery of a plan to attack Hong Kong and hold Asia Pacific – and the world beyond – to ransom. But the trail doesn’t end there …
Amidst relentless danger, Angus’s resolve is once more tested down to the wire.

View full details

Synopsis

The first three novels in the romantic, suspense, supernatural series, entitled

THE MIRACLES AND MILLIONS SAGA



‘UNPUTDOWNABLE’ – Says one reviewer.



This omnibus edition includes the first THREE books in the Dorothy Lyle series, and contains close to 1,000 pages of weird visions, vast sums of cash, inner musings on the cosmos, broken-hearted girls, friends with attitude, thrifty parents, relentless spending, vivid dreams, chocolate, fire-bombs, a gun-loving tough guy, humour and stalkers. This highly addictive series has it all.



Who is Dorothy Lyle?

She’s a woman who appears super-normal at first glance. She resides in a modest house in a small Irish town, and commutes to a typical office. She’s a lone parent who misses her children now that they are at college. Yet Dorothy is so much more than the obvious. She is a powerful psychic who has been masquerading as normal for twenty years. She is also a woman who has been avoiding men since a nasty breakup and divorce left her reeling in shock while still in her twenties.



The winds of change begin to blow around Dorothy as she approaches her fortieth birthday. An unfortunate affair of the heart means that her daughter, Diane, has distanced herself from her former home and doting mother. Dorothy wonders if some extra cash might alleviate the immediate problem.



Enter the lottery and one hundred and eight-five million tax free dollars.



How easy do you think it is to hide your true self when you unexpectedly become the fortieth richest woman in your own small country? How feasible do you think it is to avoid all dating and romantic involvements when you are single, and literally rolling in cash? How practical do you think it is to stay safe when so many of those around you seem to resent your good fortune?



This box set contains the following three books:



DOROTHY LYLE IN AVARICE – BOOK 1. Join Dorothy on the first leg of her rollercoaster journey as she discovers what an emotionally charged and complicated experience dealing with unexpected wealth can be. Clairvoyance may in handy on occasion, but it doesn’t help you decide who gets what!



DOROTHY LYLE IN COLOUR – BOOK 2. Relax with Dorothy as she begins to truly enjoy her wealth and changes in fortune. Only for her new-found pleasure to be jeopardised by a tarot card reading of all things! Once again, change is afoot, although this time it’s of a sinister nature.



DOROTHY LYLE IN HELP – BOOK 3. Watch what happens when Dorothy concedes that she cannot protect herself alone, and sets out to hire professional help. Ever wondered what it would be like to come face to face with your other half? The half you weren’t fully aware was even missing. And if he happened to be in a bad mood at that momentous moment, do you think it might colour your judgement? Read on, folks, and find out the answers to these questions and about a hundred more.

Synopsis

The Ryder Quartet comprises four crime thrillers. Each of them is also separately available as an independent book. In this collection they form an overall cohesive narrative. Detective Jeremy Ryder and his colleagues pursue heinous criminals into the depths of the criminal underworld. The action takes place in Durban, South Africa, but the confrontation between the forces of law and justice on the one hand and criminal machinations on the other make these four stories relevant to any major city in the world. The author's field work involved detective-guided tours through forensic analysis, to the front line of drug dealing, and into the private pain of victims of crime. Readers of the individual volumes have hailed the work as action-packed thrillers steeped in authenticity and plausibility, reflecting the real world of police encounters with the dark world of crime.
