My new novel The Forbidden Zone will be published on Amazon in paperback and Kindle format on 13 November 2020.
Managing the world’s richest diamond mine in former German South West Africa, Harvey Tremayne clashes with a colonial resistance group, intent on restoring their homeland. They smuggle diamonds destined for the Nazi military rearmament programme. Tremayne got in their way. They killed his wife. Driven by revenge, he’s now hunting for them.
His search takes him to places even more dangerous than the terror-filled trenches of his WW1 service. In the process, he is drawn into the shadowy world of British Secret Intelligence. They are hunting the same enemy but for a different reason.
Amid sizzling tensions, days before World War 2 is declared, the web of intrigue and murder he uncovers stretches from Tangier to the diamond-rich Forbidden Zone in the blistering Namib Desert. This land is merciless and treats the hunter and the hunted with equal contempt.
Brought alive by a vibrant backdrop and warts-and-all characters, this fast-paced action thriller delivers from the start until its startling and dramatic finale.
My first military history book, Mud, Blood and Bayonet was released on 1 Jan 2018. It is a history of the 6th Dorsetshire Regiment in 1918, day by day, for them the bloodiest year of the war.
