Also available at The Book Warehouse, Coffs Harbour.

‘Tales of Murder Mayhem and Mischief’ is an eclectic collection of thirty four short stories. Some are short enough to read over coffee. Others are longer and more involved. All are full of wit and dark humour, some biting satire reminiscent of George Orwell’s ‘Animal Farm’.

John’s first novel ‘The Watson Conundrum’ now available is a fast paced crime thriller that draws on John’s previous life as a lawyer in the UK. The plot weaves a complex puzzle to be solved by the joint efforts of some very clever lawyers who keep getting the answer wrong and a pair of hard working honest coppers who stumble on the solution with a little help from a very unlikely friend.

The story has everything; Stuffy English barristers’ chambers with characters from the last century. Scenes in the beautiful Mafia controlled hills of Calabria. Mercenary gangsters and crooked lawyers. Honest coppers with a conscience, the beautiful generous Mandy and lots more.

‘The Watson Conundrum’ and ‘A Calabrian Folly’ are very visual page turners bound to find their way to the small screen.

In the sequel to ‘The Watson Conundrum’. The plot moves from London to Mafia country of Southern Italy where some of the characters you have already met find themselves on a dangerous mission in unfamiliar territory. If you haven’t yet read Watson, now is the time to do so.

‘A Touch of Sulphur’ is a short novel or novella written from an unusual viewpoint. The narrator is an anti-hero, a devil incarnated to carry out a mission. Things don’t go quite to plan and the devil must face the consequences. As devils go this one does some ‘good’ work, some he is proud of and is happy to share with the reader.
