My Bad…

Things have been pretty busy around here of late and I’ve not had the chance to write anything for the blog but… now I have!

I’ve also been drafting up my fifth book and when I get my head down, I tend to miss what’s going on in the world. I keeping hearing something about a ‘Brexit’. What’s that, then?

Book #4 has FINALLY been released and is now available to purchase here.

The delay in its release came about through a few things: self-editing, editor-editing, me editing the edits that needed editing, cover design and a whole lot more stuff that goes into getting  a book published. Who knew??

Still, it’s here and can be yours if you desire it. It can be read as a stand-alone but it also follows on from the Burning Men so without trying to get you to part with even more cash, it might be helpful if you bought that one too. Just trying to enhance your story experience.

Anyhoo… here it is in all its blue glory.



Whoops! And Good News!

Right, this isn’t good. I’ve just looked at my posts and realised I haven’t posted anything for six months. SIX MONTHS. I swear I don’t know what happened there. The only thing I can offer as some form of apology is that I was tucked up editing Book #4 and have been drafting Book #5. Between them, they’ve taken up most of my free time. But SIX Months! Jesus! Life goes by so damn quickly. Even more so as you get older.

But, the good news is Book # 4 in the bestselling Paterson & Clocks series is out soon, so, I’m very pleased about that. It’s called ‘YOU CAN’T HIDE’  and is due for release on the 2nd of July for the princely sum of 99p. Bargain (Six months of blood, sweat and tears in that and I’ve had to live with Johnny Clocks in my head too.)

But seriously, 99p. What does that buy you these days? A cup of tea? No. Bloody £1.60 is the cheapest where I live. A tea bag, a drop of hot water and a splash of milk. Madness.

A frickin’ Mars bar costs 85p and that’s gone in a minute or two. So, a book for less than one English poooond isn’t bad money, eh? Cheap entertainment there.

Anyway, enough banging on. Here’s the cover so you know what to look for on Amazon if you want to spend your slightly-less-than- one-pound.


Book 3 Release Date

I bring you news!

The official release date for Book #3 in the Paterson and Clocks series is the 7th of December. It’ll only be available in the Kindle format at time of release. The paperback will follow shortly.

I’ve gone a little bit old school on this one in terms of its content but believe me when I tell you that one of the villains is seriously…different!

If you haven’t already read them, the first two books in the series can be found here and will help you get to know the characters and backstory a bit better.

Here’s the blurb:

On the streets of London, a simmering gang war is about to erupt.

It’s first casualty, tied to a stake and burned alive, is Davey Caine, the only son and heir to the criminal empire created by his father, William ‘Billy’ Caine. Billy is a notorious and violent gangster with total control of south-east London. But he’s not the man he used to be and the sharks smell blood in the water.

Albert Tanner, A one-eyed psychopath with delusions of grandeur and a flair for the theatrical, rules the east end of London with a rod of iron and kills without conscience in a very particular and brutal way.

Both men have seen the future and they know that the Albanian Mafia, with control over the north and west, will soon look to expand into their territories. A take-over is coming but are the Albanians really the threat they’re made out to be, or is it someone closer to home?

As the streets explode into violence and the body count starts, men are shot and burned alive in a tit-for-tat game of power. Caught in the middle, Detectives Ray Paterson and Johnny Clocks find themselves trying to control men of extreme violence. Men who have no fear of the law and its consequences and unafraid to kill anyone who stands in their way – including them.

Under pressure and desperate to stop the killings, Paterson is stunned when he’s suddenly offered the chance to stop it dead in its tracks.  If he ignores it, the killings continue. If he takes it, there’s a price to pay. What he doesn’t know is that the price will come with hidden and devastating consequences.

In the end, power is everything and when this war is over, the only winner will be the one with nothing to lose.

And, here’s the cover.


Book 3 – Teeny Tiny Teaser

During my research for Book 3, I started digging around into naughty villains from across the sea and their effect on crime here in Britain. I always knew things were bad but I didn’t quite grasp the scale of it.

I found an article on Albanian gangs and people trafficking.  Not going to give too much away but, my next book involves Albanians, but not people trafficking. That’s it. That’s yer lot. Oh, and to give you an idea what these chaps are like, have a little read of this.
