“Real page turner… keeps up the tension throughout” LESLEY RIDDOCH
My new conspiracy thriller, Deadly Secrecy, is out and available to buy online and in bookshops.
It’s the first of a three-part series featuring Edinburgh freelance journalist Willie Morton. This time, investigating the mystery death of an anti-nuclear activist, he runs up against the worst of British spooks and has to flee for his life. Chased by Daniel McGinley and the British Nuclear Installations Protection Squad all over the Highlands, Morton gets close to the truth – or as close as he can in a contemporary Britain that guards its secrets ever more fiercely.
Set against a backdrop of growing political tension between the two parliaments of Westminster and Holyrood, this contemporary thriller is persuasive, timely and politically-charged.
Available in ebook format (£1:99) and paperback (rrp £8:99) in bookshops and online.
