boyle's law

BOYLE'S LAW is a twisting, crime thriller set in the heart of the Scottish Highlands. The plot revolves around a deadly trio - Stella Valentine, Frank Valentine, and Charlie Boyle.

Rippling with dark humour, BOYLE'S LAW is a page-turning read, but with lust, murder, and a diamond heist in the picture, be prepared for a view of the Scottish Highlands you won't get on any glossy calendar.

"Top-notch Tartan Noir - with genuinely heart-stopping moments and cool twists." ***** "With grisly humour and an absorbing plot this makes for an enthralling read."*****

each new morn

EACH NEW MORN is a guide to surviving in a hostile, post apocalyptic world. A rogue prion disease has wiped out most of the world's population.

A secondary disease infects some survivors. Aggressive and erratic, the infected become known as Screamers. They are not the only enemy. Each New Morn: a book about tomorrow for the world we live in today.

"Gripping story of survival, well written" ***** "Couldn't put it down" ***** "What a cracking read." ***** "An edge of your seat story right from the start." *****


In psychological thriller, EROSION, ten people are stranded on a remote Scottish island. From the start there are undercurrents of tension and unease.

Jealousy, lust and anger raise the temperature within the claustrophobic confines of the living quarters. The story twists and turns as the group disintegrates. Tension escalates and it's not long before ten become nine.

"A modern take on classic suspense" ***** The dynamics between the characters are totally compelling" **** "A compelling account of a nightmare scenario" *****
