A simple snatch and grab operation leaves a trail of dead bodies behind and sets a ruthless Saudi terrorist on the run.

Haunted by the ghosts of his past and blamed for the botched operation, deniable intelligence operator Craig Archer is thrown headlong into an adventure he could have lived without-and may not live through.

Drafted to the black ops unit of the SIS, known as The Division, he finds himself chasing shadows as he hunts the escaped Saudi moneyman, a former IRA bombmaker and a possible traitor in the Service. Accompanied by a beautiful agent from MI6 and constantly half a step behind the bad guys, Archer chases his targets across four countries in a relentless pursuit that leaves a path of destruction in its wake.

With the British, Americans and Saudis all working their own agendas, Archer must fight to stay alive and try to figure out who the good guys really are. As the bullets fly and blood is spilled, the only rule Archer can follow is to believe nothing and trust no one.

The Division is an action-packed spy thriller series that appeals to fans of Vince Flynn, Robert Ludlum, Tim Tignor and LT Ryan.

Pledged Assets: Crane forges a cautious alliance with the enigmatic and ruthless woman known as Swift and follows her to Venice, where the information he needs is sealed in the vaults of a centuries-old underworld bank. Undercover on an isolated island, surrounded by enemies who will kill him if his identity is revealed, and pursued by the seductive wife of his dangerous host, Crane must find a way into a seemingly impenetrable vault, and escape the island with his life.

The Dreadful Alchemist: A Thrilling Espionage Novel of Nuclear Terror (Techno Thriller, Mystery & Suspense Book 1)

A blood-chilling tale of international nuclear terrorThis action packed, fast moving international thriller, is a page turner from cover to virtual cover. It takes the reader from peaceful Scandinavia, to the offices of the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna and through a clandestine laboratory culminating in the turmoil of the Middle East where the Islamic State seeks to establish the New Islamic Caliphate. Ollie, a disgruntled young Swedish man, joins the Islamic State fanatics in Syria and is given a special mission that will promote a global nuclear war. Through subterfuge, manipulation and ruthlessness Ollie is determined to accomplish his goal. The disappearance of radioactive sources from hospitals all over Europe attracts the attention of the International Atomic Energy Agency. A plot to detonate a radioactive dispersion device is suspected, but David Avivi, a brilliant physicist who is a Mossad agent, believes something much worse is at hand. A continent wide chase begins to discover the whereabouts of the missing sources and a bizarre scientist who may be involved. David and the Israel Security Agency are just one step behind Ollie...

??? ISIS will stop at nothing to promote destruction and havoc on a global scale. Who can stop them?This exciting thriller combines two important, yet very demanding, political and scientific elements. The author skillfully leads us through the current political situation in the Western world by employing menacing ingredients such as fanatic Islam and atomic bomb threat. Though the basic scheme of this book comprises of classical components such as sex and the Middle East conflict, the reader is easily and quickly caught by the developing plot. The scientific core is (thank God) unfounded, yet it looks reasonable even for scientists that are not experts in nuclear physics.

This book is highly recommended for those who like thrillers with unexpected original plot.

Clarity Hunters

Hugh Brier is an average guy with above-average troubles. His construction skills, and his background he doesn't talk about much, attract the interest of a shadowy think tank called the Merit Group. They think he's clever and want to hire him, though the terms of his employment are worryingly vague.

Hugh manages to tell them 'no' in a way they understand. He thinks he's clear of all trouble when his day job almost kills him. The apartment building he's spearheading partially collapses while he and his people are inside.

When Hugh wakes, he's in the hospital, three of his employees are dead, and the police and prosecutors are eyeing Hugh hard.

Hugh's insistence on his innocence seems to make him look more guilty. Under the darkest kind of cloud, he begins piecing together the facts of this disaster. The true picture is a dangerous one: one of Portland's shadowy power centers, a builder and concrete supplier called Andrew Pallin, has orchestrated the sabotage of Hugh's building. He's also pulling strings to ensure Hugh's prosecution. It's the hard nose way of handling up-and-coming competition.

Hugh can't convince anyone in authority to believe him. What's left? Prison, no. He's already spent many months in a federal prison earlier in his life. He wants vindication.

Hugh turns to the people he met at the Merit Group and asks for their help. There's a cost, of course. Hugh has to commit to a year's contract working for them in exchange for a plan to bring about Andrew Pallin's fall.

Hugh knows how heavy his current troubles are and signs up. Once he steps into the shadowy world of think tanks and private spies, his real trouble begins.

Clarity Hunters is the first book featuring Hugh Brier.

The author is a former federal criminal investigator and intelligence officer and he uses his background knowledge to bring the characters to life. A poor shopkeeper and his wife in Shanghai are murdered, something these Triad killers have done many time before, but this time they made a mistake...the victims' young daughter was watching. Not finding the daughter was not just a mistake, it was a huge mistake. Many years later in Seattle, FBI Special Agent, Sean McNamara, is in a tai chi class and he finds himself attracted to a beautiful Chinese woman in the class. She seems to be just a PhD student at the University of Washington, but dead bodies seem to crop up when she is around, including a serial killer who is the subject of a police manhunt. A few months later, on the Caribbean island of Barbados, during a hunt for a killer, Special Agent McNamara and the Chinese woman encounter a conspiracy that reaches into the CIA and the halls of Congress and they become the hunted as assassins arrive on the island. This is the first novel in "The Chinese Woman" spy-suspense-thriller series. The second novel, "The Chinese Woman: Operation Lion Den" is currently available free at

A. To answer that, perhaps I should tell you what motivated me to write them in the first place. I love novels of this genre, and some include both talented writing and great story lines. What bothered me, however, is that most authors don't understand how law enforcement and intelligence agencies actually operate making good stories unrealistic. Most readers may not be bothered by this, or even realize it, but it bothered me so I decided to write novels that rectified that problem.


A. I have been very fortunate...for most of my career in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police I was assigned to the Major Crime Section, Commander of the Heroin Importing and Trafficking Unit, and an intelligence officer in the National Crime Intelligence Section (organized crime and terrorism). I got to learn about similar assignments in the US as I often worked with US police and the FBI. One of my best friends, in fact, was a CIA case officer.


A. After I retired from the RCMP and worked at a police college they wanted someone to go to China to study Chinese police training. I volunteered as my wife had recently passed away...I had to stop grieving and get on with my life. What an eye-opener that was...but that is a story for another time. I was treated like royalty at the police colleges and universities and made many friends among the police. I also made a few friends in the Ministry of State Security. Even though Americans and Canadians generally have a negative view of the Chinese, I was surprised to find that the Chinese actually like us; I never heard a single negative comment about Americans or Canadians.

Sorry if I am getting off topic. Since I have always wanted to be a writer, I thought, what a great advantage I have had. I am personally familiar with crime, law enforcement and intelligence work in North America, now I have a good understanding of the same in China. I could write an authentic novel in the mystery, suspense, thriller genre completely devoid of unrealistic nonsense.

The Phoenix Affair

Nearly 20 years after declining an invitation to join the CIA, Air Force Colonel Paul Cameron finds he's a part of the secret Phoenix program and takes on an innocent-sounding CIA mission to help an old friend in trouble. As al-Qaeda hunts the pair across Europe and the Middle East, Cameron must rely on his wits to survive relentless attacks designed to silence his Saudi friend and preserve a sweeping plan to attack the American homeland.

From the subways of Paris to the parched dunes of the Arabian Desert, The Phoenix Affair is a fast-paced and intricately-wrought thriller that skips across three continents. Cameron is a natural survivor, and his is a sweeping tale of technology, tradecraft, quick-thinking and hard fighting from the first pages to the final climactic conflict.

On a mission to stop the protests turning into a bloody invasion, Jenna, Eva and Dan must use every tactic in the book... and even then it may not be enough. Overwhelming odd, conspiracy and a burning desire for revenge work against them at every level. But if Jenna loses... so will everybody else.

If you enjoy high-octane, page-turning, adventures, this book is for you. If you love the Jet series, Konkoly, Dawson and Reacher, you'll love FREEDOM SQUARE. Freedom Square is a thrilling short read series with cliff-hangers and a memorably explosive ending.

Hawkwood's in America for this gripping, action-packed follow up to the bestselling Ratcatcher - for fans of Bernard Cornwell, Conn Igulden and Patrick O'Brian

1812: Matthew Hawkwood, soldier turned spy, is stranded behind enemy lines, in America, a country at war with Britain.

Heading for the safety of the Canadian border, Hawkwood's route takes him to Albany where the chance sighting of a former comrade-in-arms - Major Douglas Lawrence - within a consignment of British prisoners puts paid to his plans.

For as the two men make their escape they uncover an American plot to invade Canada. If it is successful, the entire continent will be lost. The British authorities must be warned.

Pursued by a relentless enemy, Hawkwood and Lawrence set off across the snow-bound Adirondack Mountains; the land the Iroquois call 'The Hunting Grounds'.

But they are not alone.

Buried deep in Hawkwood's past is an old alliance - one that could save both their lives and help turn the tide of war...

Eastern Shadows: Alex Thorne Book One (Alex Thorne Action Spy Adventures 1)

Despite being an excellent spy, Alexandria Thorne was fired from British Intelligence following traitorous allegations against her deceased father. When her former employers ask for her help, she is angry and reluctant to give it. But there's an arms dealer missing in Belarus, and the man holding the key is also the last man to see Alex's parents alive.

Thrown into the middle of a civil war, Alex must handle a team of doubtful allies, dangerous enemies, and an eastern shadow from her past...


Q - So, what makes the Alex Thorne series special?

A - The Alex Thorne series is focused on giving readers a high-thrill, page-turning rollercoaster of female-fronted spy action. There is a heady mixture of adventure, mystery and thriller elements in each instalment that takes the reader down a twisting path of shocking revelations and high adrenaline as Alex uncovers the secrets about both her adversaries and her own family.

Q - So, why should readers give these books a try?

A - At its heart, because the series is a thrilling ride of action adventure. Also however, there are very few action spy thrillers that focus upon a female protagonist; something that I believe is a travesty and that I hope to do my part to correct with the Alex Thorne series. I believe that it is possible for women to kick just as much butt as any suave male spy could, and I want to showcase this fact.

Q - Can readers get the second instalment for free?

A - They sure can! Simply go to the web link written in the first few pages of 'Eastern Shadows' and you can have the option of getting 'Patriot Traitors: Alex Thorne Book Two' for FREE if you sign up to the C.J. Somersby mailing list.

And thanks for reading!

1,000 Yards: A John Milton Short Story

From Amazon number-one best-selling author Mark Dawson, this novella is an introduction to John Milton, the most dangerous assassin in the pay of Her Majesty's government.

Meet John Milton. He considers himself an artisan. A craftsman. His trade is murder. Milton is the man the government sends after you when everything else has failed. Ruthless. Brilliant. Anonymous. Lethal. You wouldn't pick him out of a crowd, but you wouldn't want to be on his list.

But now, after ten years, he's had enough - there's blood on his hands, and he wants out. Trouble is this job is not one you can just walk away from. In this dip into his case files, Milton is sent into North Korea. With nothing but a sniper rifle, bad intentions, and a very particular target. Will Milton be able to take on the secret police of the most dangerous failed state on the planet?

Mark Dawson has worked as a lawyer and currently works in the London film industry. His first books, The Art of Falling Apart and Subpoena Colada, have been published in multiple languages.

Extracts From: An Italian Story

An Italian Story describes power games, economic and financial operations, and love intrigues in Milan, Rome, Tokyo and Seoul. It is a political-economic thriller with hints of romance. Everything happens in compliance with the values of Bushido, the samurai's code of honour, and the Kabuki theatre's style, characterised by unexpected twists and mysterious characters who play different roles.

The story takes place in Italy in recent days, which are reread and reinterpreted. It deals with organisations and people - which have always been part of the social and economic system of Italian government and society - obtaining power and joining forces to achieve their secret goals without acting in plain view. The plot creates a link between bewildering economic-criminal events, surfacing like tips of icebergs. Apparently, the events described are disconnected, but actually, they are determined by an old and rigorous plan.

John K. Whites is the pseudonym used by an American economic-political reporter and an Italian manager who have worked in Italy and Japan. They have witnessed the same events and, after several years, they have met accidentally and have realised that their version of the facts was quite different from the official one.
