My second WW2 action thriller is due to be released in October. It introduces Cornish mining engineer Harvey Tremayne.
He is driven by revenge. Managing the world’s richest diamond mine in former German South West Africa, he clashes with a colonial resistance group, intent on restoring their homeland. They smuggle diamonds for the Nazi military rearmament programme. Tremayne got in their way. They killed his wife. Now he’s hunting for them.
In this fast paced action thriller, 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 the British Secret Service. They are hunting the same enemy but for a different reason.
Days before WW2 is declared, he tracks his nemesis to the unforgiving, blistering desert that is the diamond rich Forbidden Zone. The land is merciless in protecting its ancient, glittering treasures. And offshore, the icy sea guards the land with its own deadly secrets.
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.
