People who love heart-pumping, page turning thrillers, will love this series.Q. Why did you write the Last Line?A. I got to know the characters really well before I wrote this series. In the end Jenny Royal had to be written. She is probably the baddest, toughest female heroine out of all my books. Her character comes from a pure need for revenge. But she's a real kind of woman. She has emotions, romantic leanings, and a ten tons of responsibility on her shoulders. Q. Sounds great! Solomon, you've written five Last Line adventures. Have you got plans for any more?A. The Last Line was inspired by international events unfolding around the world during the writing process. There is always 'bad stuff' happening in the world. That sounds stupidly simplistic, but it's true. The stories of the Last Line are about last resort solutions to nightmare scenario problems in a very dangerous world. Those problems could happen. There is actually plenty of inspiration out there right now. I think we could all do with Jenna and The Company getting to work right away!Q. How would you categorise this series?A. With my librarian's hat on? I'd have to say The Last Line is an action thriller series, it has a female protagonist, in fact it has two female lead characters, with at least two strong male characters alongside them. It's a conspiracy thriller series, it's a mystery thriller series, it's an International crime thriller series. Oh, and did I mention action and adventure? It's got all that and more. Q. That's a pretty comprehensive answer!A. I always aim to please.The Last Line boxed set. Join the adventure today.Grab your copy now!

The Shadow Priest

"This is a great beach read." –USA TODAY Network.In the remote Four Corners region of Colorado, Special Agent Nathaniel Arkin, a disgraced former intelligence officer, investigates the killing of a bigoted, vitriolic preacher who was about to be elected to the U.S. House of Representatives. In processing the murder scene, Arkin thinks he recognizes the modus operandi of a shadowy group he pursued and was on the verge of exposing years earlier, just before his abrupt fall from grace and exile from Washington, D.C. Rumored to be run by a self-righteous, lapsed Jesuit priest, it was a group Arkin long suspected of orchestrating an international assassination campaign targeting charismatic, fledgling fanatics—future Hitlers and bin Ladens—just as they emerged from obscurity, before they were capable of instigating mass murder. Reluctant, but aching for redemption, Arkin resumes the chase, setting in motion a chain of events that could lead to his salvation—or his doom. Along the way, he confronts a question that has troubled him for many years: What creates murderous fundamentalists and fanatics like Hitler and bin Laden in the first place?This is the first of a two-book series.

Where There's Smoke: Judge Charlie Walden's First Case (Walden of Bermondsey)

Meet Judge Charlie Walden in the first case of six from the novel, Walden of BermondseyIf you like Rumpole of the Bailey, you'll love Walden of BermondseyWhen Charlie Walden took on the job of Resident Judge of the Bermondsey Crown Court, he was hoping for a quiet life. But he soon finds himself struggling to keep the peace between three feisty fellow judges who have very different views about how to do their job, and about how Charlie should do his.And as if that’s not enough, there’s the endless battle against the ‘Grey Smoothies’, the humourless grey-suited civil servants who seem determined to drown Charlie in paperwork and strip the court of its last vestiges of civilisation.No hope of a quiet life then for Charlie, and there are times when his real job – trying the challenging criminal cases that come before him – actually seems like light relief.Praise for Walden of Bermondsey'No one writes with more wit, warmth and insight about the law and its practitioners than Peter Murphy. He has no equal since the great John 'Rumpole' Mortimer' - David Ambrose'Though his exasperation is sometimes palpable, what triumphs over everything is his sense of humour. And it is the humour that makes Walden of Bermondsey such a delightful read. Think of him as what Rumpole would be like if he ever became a judge, and you get some idea of his self-deprecating wit and indomitable stoicism. Add a dash of Henry Cecil for his situation and AP Herbert for the fun he has with the law, and you get a sense of Peter's literary precedents' - Paul Magrath

Will he say nothing and sell his company to DHS’s prime contractor before scandal breaks, or will Zorn step up to expose the abuses and risk bringing the full wrath of America’s national security establishment down on his head?
