Major Robin Loxley returns from the Middle East to attend his father’s funeral and take on his duties as Duke of Loxley. Estranged from the old Duke for many years, this is Robin’s first return to Sherwood since the death of his mother.

Robin learns that the old Duke has mortgaged Loxley Hall to fund a lifestyle of drink, drugs, gambling and women. With the death of the Duke, the holder of his debt calls in the mortgage. This pits Robin and his Special Forces team against Nottingham’s shadowy drug lord known as the Tax Collector.

Vowing never to use guns on the streets of their city, Robin’s Outlaws use historic weapons to tear down the Tax Collector’s empire.

The Tricycle Spy

A biographical novel, based on my father's lifetime fight against communism.

Gordon Hallam first worked with Special Branch as a young soldier in the Malayan Emergency. On leaving the Army, Gordon joined the police, serving in Traffic and CID, before again working with Special Branch in England.

A crippling stroke ended Gordon's police career, but it did not end his involvement with Special Branch. Now disabled and riding a tricycle, Gordon's former collegues put him back to work as an undercover agent. This time Gordon was spying on left wing subversives, trying to make a toe hold for communism in Britain.

Between Stone and a Hard Place

Saving an outlaw biker's life in prison opened a new life as a paparazzi on the Algarve.

Accidentally killing a child trafficker threatens to cost Stone his new life in the surfer's paradise.

The search takes Stone and the bikers to Morocco and back, fighting the remnants of Portuguese and Bulgarian secret services. 

Stone, Paper, Bomb

Nev Stone & the Watchers 

This features most of the same characters as my first novel, but can be read as a stand alone story.

A fanatical sect plans to detonate an improvised nuclear device in the United States, blaming Islamic terrorists.

The action moves between England, Portugal, Cuba and New Orleans as the bikers track the players and the nuclear components. Time is against them as they race to prevent a bigger catastrophe than 9/11. 

Breath Becomes Stone

Nev Stone & the Watchers 

Disgraced ex cop, Nev Stone now works with the Watchers MC and their global security business. Contracting for MI6, they are sent undercover to New Zealand, where smuggling of rare animals has caught the attention of Britain’s Royal Family.

The action moves through Hong Kong, China and New Zealand, as the Watchers fight environmental disaster. 

Rocking the Streets

Through researching the various two wheeled sub cultures, I saw that alongside most of them ran an accompaniment of contemporary music. 

The Rockers first had Rock and Roll and Rockabilly, moving later towards Heavy Rock. The Mods began with Modern Jazz, moving through Ska to eventually become Skinheads. The 1980’s saw some very weird and wonderful fashions in both dress and music. The Hillbilly looking Hipsters of the early 21st century are said to have drawn their inspiration from the early Beatnik culture, which in turn was part of the American music scene. 

The current street gang and drug dealing culture has its own accompaniment of Rap. This has changed greatly over the decades, from a peaceful, happy form of black music, to the violent, gangster focused Rap of today.

But the youth cultures went back even further than my biker research. In this book, I will lead you through what I learned of the Scuttlers of the 1800s and the Bright Young Things of the 1920s.
