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. (Amazon US) (Amazon UK) (Smashwords)



New novel: Delivering Caliban

The sequel to Ratcatcher is now out as an ebook, for Amazon Kindle and in all other formats via Smashwords. John Purkiss, the scourge of rogue agents in the British intelligence services, is back, facing an opponent who’s systematically murdering CIA operatives across Europe and the US. Delivering Caliban is darker, meaner and bloodier than its predecessor, and adds what I hope is an interesting psychological angle to the Purkiss story.
