Purkiss is back


John Purkiss returns for a fourth outing in TUNDRA, a thriller set in the frozen wastes of Siberia. And it’s only a little over a month overdue. You have to admit, I’m getting better…

TUNDRA is available for purchase at the outlets listed below, with more to come as it filters through. And I’m pleased to say my publication schedule is picking up – my next novel, DELTA GHOST, the follow-up to OMEGA DOG, should be out this summer.

Anyway, here’s TUNDRA. Read, enjoy, and leave a review if you like…

Exclusive offer for mailing list subscribers

To thank everyone who’s joined my new-release mailing list, I’m offering a new 8,000-word John Purkiss short story, SPIKED, in mobi, epub and PDF format, downloadable upon sign-up. SPIKED sees Purkiss in Hong Kong a few days before Christmas, investigating the stabbing to death of a British intelligence agent. A second agent has been accused of the murder – but is the case as cut-and-dried as it seems? And can Purkiss escape the Triads in time to solve the crime?

SPIKED isn’t available anywhere else, so if you haven’t yet signed up to the list, you can do so here.


Thanks for all your support of my books in 2013, and happy New Year!


After a long gestation and difficult birth, the third John Purkiss novel is available, at least on Amazon. It’ll be published for Kobo, Nook and other ereaders in due course, once those sites get round to processing it.

Oh, and it’s on sale at a special introductory price for the next five days only.

Jokerman Cover MEDIUM

Excuse corner

Apologies to anyone who’s wondering why the new John Purkiss thriller, Jokerman, isn’t out yet, as I said it would be by now.


The book’s ready to go, but Amazon isn’t. I’m locked in a dispute with the company at the moment, and until it’s resolved, they won’t let me publish anything new with them.


I’m hoping this will all be sorted out by next week. Once it is, Jokerman will be up and running, and those of you who’ve signed up to the mailing list will be the first to hear about it.

The Jokerman Cometh

The new John Purkiss thriller, Jokerman, will be out at the end of August. If you’d like to receive advance notification of its release, as well as of the opportunity to get it at a special reduced introductory price, then please sign up to my mailing list, here.

As I’ve said before, this is purely a notification list for my new releases. You won’t get spammed, phished or harassed in any way as a result of signing up.

Still still alive

Slight change of plan. The next John Purkiss novel will now be titled Jokerman and will appear later in the summer, probably July or August. The next thriller featuring Martin Calvary, protagonist of Severance Kill, will be out in the autumn.

In other news, if you’d like to sign up for email updates when my new books are released, you can do so here. I’ll never email you about anything else or give your address out to anyone else, so no spam. And I won’t stalk you either.
