Detective Inspector Jack Kirby and his team need all the resources available at their disposal to solve this intriguing case.


‘That was a good read, a classic whodunnit and I really enjoyed it. I really like the pace of the novel, it shows it’s been well planned.’
Mark Leggatt (Author), February 2021

Read James McCreet’s forensic criticism to the beginning of:
(originally Only A Weekend)
‘This is not a bad start to a crime novel. The style style suits the content and there’s immediately a mystery for the reader. The premise and structure are good……… There’s the foundation of something good here.’

Home At Last – a short war story.
A battleship fights against the storms and gales on its journey home after sinking the pride of the enemy’s navy. The tremendous battle she faces against the struggle with elements of nature prove to be just as daunting a task, if not more so, than her previous conflict with the mighty surface raider.
