I've really enjoyed writing my third novel with a geo-political & espionage theme that spans Europe and Africa.
The tense and dramatic scenes take place in Moscow, London, Tuscany, Menorca, Mali, and the Sahel region of Africa and the greater Sahara. Sean and the gang suddenly find themselves slightly out of their comfort zone!

‘Sometimes you have to enter the death zone to save the innocent ’

A top-secret clique of former spies meet for dinner to hatch a plan to murder a competitor, not knowing that they are under surveillance from a covert arm of British Intelligence.


Hours later, with bodies strewn across a terrace, a piece of secret intelligence reveals an international plot of colossal magnitude.

For disgraced agent Sean Richardson, this is the beginning of a deniable mission to infiltrate and disrupt a group of Russian mercenaries who are working clandestinely to take over a nation state.

Acting covertly as an illicit arms trafficker, Sean is dropped into a deadly cauldron of terrorism and high-tech weaponry that will take a nation down. As the bullets fly and the chaos rains in, can Sean take down the merchants of death…..or has he finally met his match?

"This is an absolute cracker of a read and I have to say I feel for Sean as the author really does put him through his paces. It's such an excellent read, fast, action-packed, intense thriller. For me, this book just has it all and I would highly recommend it." Me and My Books.

"With its richly described locations, The Moscow Whisper has an abundance of fiendish plotting and counter-plotting, glamorous deadly women bearing bitter grudges and some nail-biting, visceral scenes which again emphasise why Sean has become such a troubled figure." Hair Past a Freckle
