Crime Novels

Murder Most Foul (see News)
1st DI Jack Kirby novel
Due: 2020/2021
An extremely wealthy and successful business woman is found murdered in a run down hotel. Robbery is not the motive, but what is? Who did it? Why? Was it someone from her past, or present life? Detective Inspector Jack Kirby and his team need all the resources available at their disposal to solve this intriguing case.
Read James McCreet’s forensic criticism to the beginning of:
Murder Most Foul (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.’
James McCreet
Under The Microscope, Writing Magazine, February 2019

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.
