Everything has a price - including living, breathing human flesh... Journalist Kate O'Sullivan investigates the murder of two young Brits on a paradise island - unaware The Hunter, a renegade CIA agent turned serial killer, is obsessed with her. While working with the local police chief she unwittingly crosses two billionaires - men who make a fortune enslaving women just like her... Can Kate survive the attentions of these predators? Another rapid-fire crime thriller from this author - a cracking page turner that will have you breathless by the time you reach the end! This thrilling second instalment in The Hack Trilogy can be read as a stand alone tale, but why not check out the riveting rapid-fire first volume, The Hack, as there are some spoilers?

Chief Lee, an incorruptible and relentless investigator with the Royal Thai Police, also plays a large part in both of the first two novels. Trigger warning: Frankly, if you need a trigger warning then it's probably best to look for a different novel. "Patching goes where other authors fear to tread." Contains 'hard-hitting realism' that some readers may find disturbing. From the back cover of the paperback edtion: When a young British couple are brutally murdered on a beach on a holiday island in Thailand, Kate O'Sullivan is sent to investigate for The Crusader newspaper. Two Burmese fishermen have been charged with the crime, but the victims' parents believe there has been a cover up, and Kate soon learns that all is not as it seems in paradise. Hunter, the renegade CIA agent Kate had a brief fling with, is obsessed with her. When he learns she's carrying his child, he follows her to the island, hoping to convince her that his serial killing ways are over and for her to give him a second chance. But dark forces are at play and evil men who make a fortune from trading in flesh are threatened by Kate's presence on their island. Soon after arriving, her life spins dangerously out of control as she unwittingly invites their attention - and becomes a potential sex slave herself... Inspired by actual events. This second novel in The Hack Trilogy of fast paced international crime adventures will take you on a rollercoaster journey deep into the dark heart of 'peak capitalism' and the vile trade in human flesh and blood.

Plenty of action in this adventure thriller on land, sea and in the air. The climax aboard a super yacht - one of the largest privately owned vessels in the world - will take your breath away.

A serial killer stalks post-WWII London in a gritty detective novel featuring Scotland Yard’s Inspector Troy. An old flame has returned to Troy’s life: Kitty Stilton, wife of an American presidential hopeful. Private eye Joey Rork has been hired to make sure Kitty’s amorous liaisons with a rat pack crooner don’t ruin her husband’s political career. But he also wants to know why Kitty has been spotted with Danny Ryan, whose twin brothers, in addition to owning one of London’s hottest jazz clubs, are said to have inherited the crime empire of a fallen mobster. Before Rork can find out, he meets a gruesome end. And he isn’t the only one: bodies have started turning up around London, dismembered in the same bizarre and horrifying way. Is it possible that the blood trail leads back to Troy’s own police force and into Troy’s own forgotten past? Flesh Wounds, a compulsively readable thriller, finds one of our most able storytellers at the height of his game. “There are characters based on (or at least inspired by) everyone from Frank Sinatra to Meyer Lansky, enough dismembered bodies to satisfy the most morbid imaginations and frequent flashes of sly wit and social conscience that illuminate a vanished world.” —Publishers Weekly
