What kind of readers do you think like the Last Line series?A. I think fans of Russell Blake's Jet series, people who enjoy LT Ryan, Mark Dawson and Alan McDermott will love Jenna Royal and The Company. The Last Line is big-canvas, epic thriller series. It's locked and fully loaded.Q. How else would you describe the story? A. It's a high-speed roller coaster ride with action, twists and turns all the way to the end. People who love heart-pumping, page turning thrillers, will love this series.Q. Why did you write the Last Line?A. I got to know the characters really well before I wrote this series. In the end Jenny Royal had to be written. She is probably the baddest, toughest female heroine out of all my books. Her character comes from a pure need for revenge. But she's a real kind of woman. She has emotions, romantic leanings, and a ten tons of responsibility on her shoulders. Q. Sounds great! Solomon, you've written five Last Line adventures. Have you got plans for any more?A. The Last Line was inspired by international events unfolding around the world during the writing process. There is always 'bad stuff' happening in the world. That sounds stupidly simplistic, but it's true. The stories of the Last Line are about last resort solutions to nightmare scenario problems in a very dangerous world. Those problems could happen. There is actually plenty of inspiration out there right now. I think we could all do with Jenna and The Company getting to work right away!Q. How would you categorise this series?A. With my librarian's hat on? I'd have to say The Last Line is an action thriller series, it has a female protagonist, in fact it has two female lead characters, with at least two strong male characters alongside them. It's a conspiracy thriller series, it's a mystery thriller series, it's an International crime thriller series. Oh, and did I mention action and adventure? It's got all that and more. Q. That's a pretty comprehensive answer!A. I always aim to please.The Last Line boxed set. Join the adventure today.Grab your copy now!

Eve’s War is a series of twelve novellas. Each book contains approximately 20,000 words and a complete story. Kindly note that the price throughout the series will be set at the minimum level and that Eve’s story arc will be concluded at the end of the series.Marseille, December 1942“We’re in a fix,” Vincent said. “The Gestapo have captured a British agent, code name Zigzag. They picked him up through his false identity papers, only the thing is they haven’t discovered his true identity, yet. But they will. And he will talk. They all do in the end. And when he talks he will reveal secrets that will destroy the local resistance networks, including our own. But there’s a way out, through a guard. He’s open to bribes. We’d like you to meet the guard, bribe him, spring Zigzag from the Gestapo prison then escort him over the mountain pass into Spain.”“Why me?” I asked.“Because you helped to establish the escape network. And you know the mountain trails like the back of your hand. Furthermore, as the wife of respected industrialist Michel Beringar you are above suspicion.”I glanced at Michel. From the stern look on his face, I could tell that he wasn’t pleased. Was this one risk too many? And as for me being above suspicion...the Gestapo were following me and they were tapping my phone.As a child, I’d run away from home. As a teenager, I’d travelled the world, living on my wits. As a journalist, I’d witnessed atrocities inflicted in the name of fascism. As a member of the Resistance, I’d eyeballed fear and stared it down. For the past thirty years I’d lived a full life. I could do this. However, even as I voiced my agreement I knew that my life in Marseille, my life with Michel, would never be the same.The books in series order:Operation Zigzag Operation Locksmith Operation Broadsword Operation Treasure Operation SherlockOperation CameoOperation RoseOperation Watchmaker Operation OverlordOperation Jedburgh Operation Butterfly Operation Liberty

Failure to do so could change irrevocably thebalance of power around the world.This gripping thriller of international espionage races fromNew York to London, to Moscow, the Crimea and Beijing. If you enjoy the likesof Jack Reacher, you’ll love Tom Wilder. Meet him today – “a great new hero onthe block” as one prominent book reviewer has labelled him. Local radio station interview with the AuthorQ. – Listeners sometimes ask what starts people writing? A. – In my case, some forty years ago, when I was briefly between jobs, I had time on my hands. I read quite a lot and became fascinated by the intricate plotting of the likes of a John Grisham thriller and I thought I’d try my hand at it.Q. – And how did that go? A. – Though I later went on to collaborate with a professional screenplay writer to turn my book into a thriller for television, the book itself might have gone better if I hadn’t got a new job at exactly the same time as I got an Agent – and I don’t think she was best pleased when I gave my new job higher priority than my writing.Q. – So you didn’t pursue writing as a career then, what about now? A. – I’ve been very lucky in life; I was badgered by one of my twenty-something year old grandchildren a little while back to write my autobiography. As I was born before World War II, I’d seen the huge changes the war itself brought, then post-war rationing, the difficulties of the fifties, the excitement of the sixties and so on. As I said, I’ve been so lucky in life that I titled the book ‘Lucky, Lucky Me’. But at seventy-nine years of age now, I’m a bit late for yet another career and I write for the pleasures of it.Q. – And what are those pleasures? A. – The challenge and fun of plotting a thriller, especially if one wants it to be pacy, to include lots of action, to provide readers with a few hours of enjoyable escape during the daily commute to or from work or while lazing on holiday. It’s fun to be able to throw in unusual characters, maybe also assassinations, kidnapping and so on.Q, - Although “Whatever it Takes” is fiction, are your books based on reality? A. – Very much so. Although one of the next great technological leaps forward will be in quantum computers, it’s still in its infancy as I write. I’ve just speeded up its development. In time, I’m sure it will have some of the extraordinary and frightening powers that I’ve given Gemini. Though I wouldn’t dare claim to be some kind of H.G.Wells – foretelling the future – I’m sure something like Gemini will come along.Q. – Why did you decide to publish on Amazon and other eBook channels? A. – I believe that even the immensely successful J.K.Rowling had her first Harry Potter book turned down by something like a dozen publishing houses. I’m too old to afford the time going the traditional publishing route. Although one still has to write the very best book one can, publishing it through the likes of Amazon and Apple, Kobo, Barnes & Noble and is so easy, if one has a story to tell they get it out to readers where it night not via the traditional route.
