Daughters

He looks for crimes that fall through the cracks, criminals who do horrible things to those who can't defend themselves and get away with it. His ex-wife was murdered years ago, but until a mysterious young woman magically appears at his apartment, he had no reason to find out who did it or why. Soon the two of them are traveling up and down the length of California in order to bring a killer - and maybe a couple of others who deserve it - to justice.

This short story features an early version of the character who became Logan, the urban vigilante antihero of "Logan's Young Guns."

Sam Dyke Box Set: Three Crime Novels

Altered Life, The Private Lie and The Hard Swim are Sam Dyke's first three adventures and show how this tough, no-nonsense private investigator battles against personal demons and bad guys intent on putting him away.

Now you can buy all three books for less than the price of two!

So who is Sam Dyke?

He's a private investigator from a working-class background whose job forces him to mix with the wealthy and privileged of the posh Cheshire set--those whose morals and behaviour offend him and go against his own values, forged in a strong family environment. The mysteries he unravels become personal crusades against entitlement, wealth and the abuse of power. He doesn't preach but he gets angry when he sees people who lie, steal and murder to get their way. Like Philip Marlowe and Sam Spade he has a clear view of what the world is actually like and he wants evil-doers set straight: what's more, he'll do what's necessary to make that happen.

Altered Life (Book 1)

Making a killing in business is one thing - doing it for real is another.

Private Investigator Sam Dyke turns down a job that would require skills that he doesn't have - patience, computer-literacy, tact. Then he finds that the skills he does have - tenacity, aggression, street-smarts - are exactly the ones he needs for his next case - hunting down a cold-blooded murderer who seems to know what his every step will be.

To solve the case Sam must negotiate with his ex-wife, cement a relationship with a new love, unravel an office-based financial fraud and fight off an arrogant murderer armed only with a pen-knife.

The Private Lie (Book 2)

Sam is asked by his long-lost son to find his girlfriend, Kelly, who has disappeared. But when he starts his investigation he quickly comes across two Liverpudlian gangsters--the Ginger Twins--who provoke him with their arrogance and crude criminal behaviour that includes corruption and probably murder.

He also learns that the Twins are under surveillance from an undercover police operation. So he's squeezed from all sides as he gets to the bottom of the Twins' criminal empire.

In the end Sam and the Twins are set on a headlong confrontation that can only terminate in death or destruction.

Filled with fascinating characters, intriguing situations and exciting action, The Private Lie has topped Amazon's 'hard-boiled crime' charts in both the UK and the US.

The Hard Swim (Book 3)

Sam becomes involved in unravelling a mystery that dates back to the Second World War. While concluding another case, he rescues a woman who is on the point of being abducted and, for all he knows, murdered. He helps the woman, Chantal Bressette, escape, subsequently learning that she's carrying a document that has importance to a group of powerful people.

It's a coded diary written by a French Resistance fighter in WWII, but also contains information implicating the British Government in the sinking of a ship carrying over 700 Jewish refugees to Palestine. Now someone has let loose a team of ex-army killers to recover the information before it can be made public.

Sam Dyke is the only person who can stop them.

Excerpt

Agony. Pain. Terror.

A voice whispered through the blackness of her mind, so odd, so different it caught her attention. She strained to hear the words.

"Let go. It's time to let go."

Sam stared through the flames, stunned. Let go of what? She couldn't hear over the roaring fire and could barely see, but knowing that someone was there stirred her survival instinct, and she fought with the seatbelt buckle jammed at her side. She was saved. Just another minute and they'd open the door and pull her free. She'd be fine.

"Please hurry," she cried out.

"Let go. You don't need to be in there. Let it all go, and come with me."

She peered through the golden orange windshield to see a strange male face peering at her through the flames.

He smiled.

"Come with me."

"I want to, damn it. Can't you see I'm trapped?" she screamed, her vocals crisping in the heat.

"Release yourself. Come with me. Say yes."

The pain hit a crescendo. She twisted against it, hearing her spine splinter. The car seat melted into her skin. So much pain, she couldn't breathe. Blackness crowded into her mind, blessed quiet, soothing darkness. She reached for it.

"Let it go. You don't need to go through this. Hurry."

She started. Why wasn't he opening the door or getting others to help? He should be trying to save her. Shouldn't he? Sam, so confused and so tired, she could barely feel the pain overtaking her body. Where had he gone? She tried to concentrate. His face was now only a vague outline that rippled with the heat waves. A soft smile played at the corner of his mouth. The flames burned around him, weird as they centered him in the warm glow. She wanted to be with him. To live.

"Here, take my hand."

Dazed and on the brink of death, Sam focused on the hand reaching for her. She struggled to raise the charred piece of flesh that had been her arm and reached out to grasp his.

She was free.

Overwhelmed, she turned to hug her savior, her head just reaching his shoulder. He stood beside her, the same radiant beaming look on his face. His blond hair glowed, and he had the brightest teeth. She sighed. This beautiful man pointed to her right arm. Confused, Sam glanced down at her burned arm, realizing she could feel none of her injuries. Just like her other one, her broken arm had miraculously healed - whole, smooth and soft. Her skin hadn't looked this good in ten years.

She spun around to find a massive fireball below. What the hell? She had to be dead. But instead of the horror or shock, she expected to feel, she felt good. In fact, she felt great. She turned to the ever-smiling stranger.

"Let's go sweetheart."

Sam didn't know why he'd called her that, but, honestly, she was so damned grateful to be out of the car, she let him get away with it.

Holding hands, they floated higher into the cloudless blue sky. Then when the crash site below had become a tiny speck, Sam felt a hard flick on her arm and the words, "Thanks, but I can take

In Brooklyn's wealthiest zip code, a beat cop responds to a B&E in progress that she expects will be as straightforward as they come. A vacant townhouse. An obvious point of entry.
