TWO NEW BOOKS HAVE ARRIVED
The first two books in THE OUTER REACHES crime series are now out. More info on BODY HARVEST and LETHAL OUTBREAK to follow soon...
Prepare yourselves for some new and gruesome murders in THE OUTER REACHES. In this series of four books, two different human species live side-by-side in the world: majors and outers. It’s as if Neanderthals had survived and evolved alongside us (majors) and become outers. The two races look similar, but they have different talents and different genetics. Outers do not have fingerprints and they are more advanced than majors but fewer in number. They drink alcohol because it doesn’t make them drunk and they eat lots of insects. They also meditate rather than sleep.
The detective duo is Troy Goodhart (a major boy) and Lexi Iona Four (an outer girl). Both are sixteen. Troy is good with people, Lexi is good with forensic science. Together they tackle some bizarre crimes, starting with BODY HARVEST.
For all fans of my TRACES crime series, there are now seven ebooks in the series. All available through a major online bookstore! You can find them all by clicking on BOOKS. Jordan Stryker is a bionic boy who uses his enhanced body to investigate unsolved crimes, terrorism and bad guys who are beyond the reach of normal policing. Catch up with him in JORDAN STRYKER: BIONIC AGENT and JORDAN STRYKER: CYBER TERROR.
SHADES is a series of short books that are strong on drama, pace and style. The SHADES books are ideal for readers who prefer their stories to be a snack rather than a big feast. FOUR DEGREES MORE is an environmental thriller that opens with a boy called Leyton watching his bedroom fall into the sea. It’s all about coastal erosion and global warming. So what does Leyton decide to do about it? He gets caught up in a green campaign that turns out to be rather more sinister than he had bargained for. ANIMAL LAB has the theme of animal rights – and animal wrongs. It’s all about a controversial part of science and medicine: animal experiments. My third book for SHADES is ASTEROID. For years, I have put individual characters under threat in thrillers and crime stories. In ASTEROID, I decided to threaten the whole of humanity with extinction through an asteroid strike on Earth. Nature is far more powerful than us humans and this novel shows it!
