After a very busy few weeks, I’ve made it back to my website!

I’ve just finished editing the latest novel by John Carson, the soon to be published The October Project – written by a Scot in New York state, set in America, and edited by a Brit whilst in India!

Another fast-paced thriller featuring Max Doyle.

Final Steps – John Carson

A jailed U.S. Army Ranger…

A disgraced Royal Marines Commando…

And a female assassin who will bring their worlds crashing together…

Max Doyle was found guilty of killing his superior officer in Afghanistan. He was given a life sentence and put in Leavenworth military prison.

Nathan Kane was imprisoned for executing a contractor in the hills of Afghanistan. Stripped of his rank and given a dishonorable discharge, he was sentenced to ten years in an English prison.

Kane is approached by an official from the British government with a job offer. Broke, divorced and with no prospects, he considers the offer: find an elusive British assassin known as Rose Arcana.
It should be a simple job, Kane thinks. But nothing in life is simple…

On the other side of the world, Max Doyle has been told that his wife and daughter were murdered in their home. He is escorted out of prison to attend their funerals. After landing at the air base, he is approached by a woman he has never seen before.
She talks to him and he notices that his MP detail have gone.
She makes him a job offer. He’ll be released on license in exchange for him coming to work for a covert department called the Phoenix Group. The first job he will be employed to do is hunt down a British assassin, a female known as Rose Arcana.

Joining forces with Kane, Doyle begins the hunt, but there is more to the job offer than either man was told. It appears Rose is working with a team of assassins who will stop at nothing to keep their secret safe.

Something is wrong, and they quickly discover that things aren’t as they first seemed. And somebody wants to make sure that neither man survives the conflict. But Doyle and Kane survived the worst in the killing fields of Afghanistan and they’re more than ready to take on an enemy on American soil…
