Still alive


Just wanted to let anyone who’s still out there know that I haven’t been taken out by a sniper’s bullet, but am a firm believer in the dictum that if you haven’t got anything worth saying, you might consider saying nothing at all. (In which case, why was this blog ever started in the first place? I hear the unkind among you mutter.)

A bit of news: the third John Purkiss novel, Annihilation Myths, will be out in all ebook formats at the end of May. The second Martin Calvary novel, following on from Severance Kill and with a title yet to be confirmed, will appear in September.

And I’ll get round to releasing Delivering Caliban and Severance Kill in paperback some time this year.

Severance Kill


Ahead of schedule, and having dropped the definite article from its title, my new thriller Severance Kill is now out as an ebook for the Kindle and via Smashwords for all other ereaders. This is something of a departure as although it’s an action/espionage thriller, it doesn’t feature John Purkiss, the protagonist of Ratcatcher and Delivering Caliban.

Martin Calvary is a former soldier and Afghanistan veteran who’s been working as a professional assassin for the last four years, taking out enemies of the British state who are beyond the reach of the law. The job isn’t one that a normal person could sustain for long, and Calvary wants out. The trouble is that his employers, known as The Chapel, aren’t ready to discharge him from his contract yet, and want him to carry out one last hit in Prague. If he does so, he’ll be let loose. If he doesn’t, evidence of the illegal assassinations he’s carried out so far will be given to the police and the press, and he’ll become a wanted criminal facing life imprisonment.

If you like fiction with action, adventure, suspense, twists, Cold War spies, modern spies, exotic Eastern European locations, and the most heartless mobsters this side of The Sopranos.. you’ll find all of this here, and more.

Enjoy.
