The victim was just a kid, sixteen years old. And the exact age the detective’s son was, the son Gray has not seen since he went missing at a funfair ten years ago. Each case involving children haunts Gray with the reminder that his son may still be out there – or worse, dead. The seemingly open and shut case of suicide twists into a darker discovery. Buckingham and Gray have never met, so why is Gray’s number on the dead teenager’s mobile phone?

Gray begins to unravel a murky world of abuse, lies, and corruption. And when the body of Reverend David Hill is found shot to death in the vestry of Gray’s old church, Gray wonders how far the depravity stretches and who might be next. Nothing seems connected, and yet there is one common thread: Detective Sergeant Solomon Gray, himself. As the bodies pile up, Gray must face his own demons.

Crippled by loss Gray takes the first step on the long road of redemption. But is the killer closer to home than he realised?

Set in the once grand town of Margate in the south of England, the now broken and depressed seaside resort becomes its own character in this dark detective thriller, perfect for fans of Ian Rankin, Stuart MacBride, and Peter James.

READER REVIEWS

“Masterful Suspense! Superbly crafted, and I love the structure of going back and forth between present tense and flashbacks, stretching time, even making time stand still. Genius! I know it’s a cliche to say “couldn’t put it down”, but it was true in this case, causing me to miss my bus stop (in Buenos Aires now as it so happens) because I was so hooked!

“Great read. Fast paced Suspense. Thoroughly enjoyed the suspense of all the twists and turns – its journey through many lives and situations. Each page left a feeling of uncertainty about what was coming next. Couldn’t put it down and it read all in one go.

“I love the way this story unfolds. The author knows how to stretch 3 seconds to tell the most awesome story! For those of us who love to travel and know what the world can be like, but still love it and all of the people out there. Great story!

“True Story. You know sometimes you watch movies or books and they say these events are all based on true stories, but then you find out later that, that isn’t the case. Yeah, this story isn’t one of those. From the beginning, we jump into a world full of youthful adventure and mishap, of a young man looking to find himself and maybe looking for love. We follow him as he travels the world trying to make ends meet living his dream and then through the papers of this book you’ll go on a joyride with him through his ups and downs. A great book. A great read. A memorable story.

“Fascinating and humorous way of writing. A book from a traveller about his own experiences, but not as you expect. From the first page on it is fascinating because you don’t know what happens in those three seconds when the authors life is at a risk. He goes back in time to different places of the world he travelled and sketches the people with so much love and humour. Also you see an author capable of writing about himself with a good portion of humour. Sometimes I laughed out loud. And you believe him, every word. A must-read!

 What would you do if you found a suitcase in the woods? 

What would you do when someone came looking for it?

Out of prison, but still on parole, Max just wants to keep his head down, go to work and maybe grab a cold beer at the end of his shift. He doesn’t even care that the program stuck him in Essex – a nice, but nowhere small town. With his head already full of bloody and painful memories, he’d like it just fine if his past and future stayed nice and quiet.

Too bad the present just got really messy.

A body in a tree. A missing briefcase. A Russian hit man. A DEA agent bent on revenge. Not to mention a sheriff with dangerous ambition and some pissed off bikers. Things are suddenly very interesting in sleepy Essex county. Bodies are turning up. Secrets are coming out. Questions are being asked.

It’s not good being the new guy in a small town.

A modern killer thriller that flips the genre on its head, the Truth Files is binge reading at its best.

‘The most horribly entertaining villain I’ve ever encountered.’ Simon Vesker, Buzzfeed.

‘Written vividly and utterly compelling.’ Darick Robertson, co-creator Transmetropolitan & The BOYS. 

‘Justin Truth makes me look like the good guy.’ Jonny Fairplay, Survivor.  

‘… like crack cocaine in the written form, highly addictive.’ Nick Worthington, Creative Chairman ColensoBBDO.

Corporate Truth: A corporation is a psychopath in the purest form. It will prey upon the weak, exploit the intelligent, and corrupt the virtuous—solely to maximize profits. Within this hostile world, sociopaths and narcissistic personalities are highly valued, in fact, they thrive. 

From inside his high-rise office, ruthless sociopath Justin Truth surveys his panoramic view of New York City. 

This is his city. His country. His America. 

Justin is on a mission to conquer the corporate giant, Soda-Cola. He will threaten, backstab, manipulate, blackmail, sabotage, and cut the throat of anyone who gets in his way. 

And it’s all going to his cold, calculating plan—or is it?

As his thirst for power within Soda-Cola grows, his darker side grows even darker, thrusting Justin high into the ranks of America’s most dangerous and prolific serial killers.

One detective stumbles onto the truth, however. Detective Ross Smith finds Justin’s trail of murders—murders painstakingly disguised as accidental deaths. But can an aging detective more consumed with doing what’s right than playing internal politics bring down a high-functioning, murderous, corporate sociopath?

As Ross gets closer to the truth, he’s faced with a choice: put his badge, family, and life on the line, or further his career by following orders. 

Will the truth come out before it’s too late—for everyone?
