Angels’ Cut 1st book in explosive and unforgettable Series
Angels’ Cut intro
Eilidh’s explosive dossier exposes cynical corruption and criminality feeding in dark corners of the UK Establishment. Large chunks of money evaporate like the whisky maker’s Angels’ Share.
Fearful of exposure and losing their ill-gotten gains, Bizz decides something must be done. Taken with callous efficiency, she is in lethal danger. The hospital scene is a tough and poignant sample from the Angels’ Cut excerpt.
Expecting a happy catch-up with his wee sister, Sam Duncan comes to London. She’s missing. Danger closes as fast as his express train. Any thoughts of a pleasant visit evaporate. Someone wants him dead, and a hair-raising quest begins. Sam’s investigative skills, honed as a tier-one operator working, alongside the police, are needed. Things get vicious and tough, and that’s only the beginning.
A little chumocracy goes a long way
Chumocracy, cronyism and kleptocracy–call them what you like. They involve corruption and criminality. Corrupt politicians, officials, bankers, business people, police officers and gangsters line their pockets with public money, lots and lots of it. Soon, the danger is stratospheric, and people are in serious danger.
Target the family
Both Sam and Eilidh plummet into confused and malicious webs of betrayal, murder, cover-up and stunning violence. Eilidh is lost. Can Sam find her? Will they survive? As if that isn’t enough, gangsters target his family. With his trusted warrior colleague, Tonka, facts emerge and, close behind, mayhem.
Criminality and cover-ups
People say – ‘It’s a cover-up’ … ’ It’s one law for them and another for us’ … ‘We bale out the banks, and they get the bonuses’ … etc. Just for once, wouldn’t it be nice if someone flushed the criminals out? Well, here you go. You have come to the right place.
Greed, cosy corruption–follow the money
The greedy fear exposure. Money is all. What will bad people do to protect a criminal investment? For instance, how much do criminal insiders steal? Is the £190 billion ($265 billion) reported by Experian in November 2017 fake news?
Scare her off or kill her?
Will her first success, as an investigative journalist be her last? Will she survive? Will she die? The Angels’ Cut excerpt shares a sense of this.
“I could immediately identify with his main characters, even those shady, dangerous individuals in the upper echelons of society. In this respect the story is also a measure of how eroded has become our trust in our leaders, the high and mighty of our land. His action scenes are particularly well handled – the opening scene in South Armagh is shockingly realistic. In fact there’s a gritty realism throughout this book which will linger long in the memory. All in all this is an impressive piece of work by a talented writer.” Abrach, UK
“Not your common or garden thriller, not by a long shot. A thriller it undoubtedly is, but with characters who are far better developed and fleshed out than many others of this ilk, characters who live, breathe and about whom the reader ends up caring deeply. The fact that the storyline is brilliantly crafted and the level of detail is enough (and accurate enough, too) to keep the most dedicated hardware anorak on side is just icing on the cake.” D Gixxer, UK
“As this book opens, it seems an exciting, and very readable, action thriller. Then as the characters are developed one is drawn in by the witty dialogue, by the fierce and touching family loyalties, and by the noble defense of the vulnerable against those who would abuse them to their own ends. Initially repelled by the violence in this novel, I felt, as in Stieg Larsson’s novels, the visceral satisfaction of seeing justice meted out to the abusers of women.” Maryann N, WA USA
