My stories are not ‘genre-specific’. Many very good authors write books that are linked in series, but as my plots arise out of my own experience, they are what they are, ‘stand alones’. That said, three of the four published so far may be described loosely as thrillers.
A pacey revenge thriller that twists and turns all the way through.
Never underestimate the simmering wrath of an intelligent man unjustly wronged. Geoff Summers is a brilliant designer of electronic controllers for anti-burglar systems. When his vindictive new boss prevents Geoff from fulfilling his wife’s dying wish, he is determined to get even.
Geoff secretly makes a device that will allow him to switch off remotely the controls of five systems in production. Then he quits his job and makes contact with a gang of burglars. Together they carry out five lucrative heists but the gang wants more.
No longer able to provide what they want and with his life under threat, how does Geoff get out of the mess?
