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.

It’s available here: (Amazon US) (Amazon UK) (Smashwords)


Feedback is, as ever, always welcome.


Out of the mire

All right, all right. I’ll slow down with the posts. Just stop flooding me with emails, okay?

Thanks to everybody who’s visited and followed this blog. It’ll get more interesting, I promise.

At the moment, I’m doing three things.

One: formatting all my Kindle books (novel, novella, novelette, short stories, and collections) for Smashwords, so that they’ll be available in all downloadable formats. Ratcatcher is already up on Kobo and Smashwords and being distributed to Barnes & Noble, Apple and the rest.

Two: getting ready a paperback version of Ratcatcher. I should get the proof copy next week, and if all’s well, it’ll be available as a real live paper book soon afterwards.

Three: I’m finishing off not one but two new novels. The first is the sequel to Ratcatcher, Delivering Caliban, which sees the return of John Purkiss. The second, which may or may not be set in Purkiss’s world, is The Severance Kill, a thriller about a British assassin who finds that resigning from his job comes with a heavy price. Delivering Caliban will be out in mid-November as an ebook, and as a paperback some time before Christmas. The Severance Kill should appear in all formats by the end of the year.

Feedback, criticism, stalking, death threats and offers of film contracts are, as always, most welcome. Well, some of them are.
