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!


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.

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.
