Overview

Malta - 1975. Sean Toothe, an emaciated kid, holds onto his dying mother's hand as she exhorts him to look after his five-year old brother after she's gone. The kid's fourteen-years old and with his mother gone, he's under the "care" of his brutal step-father. Making his colourful escape from the island, he turns his back on the life of hunger and beatings and with the arrogance of youth, easily forgets the promise he'd made.
Fast forward twenty years, when a visitor brings Sean devastating news of the brother he'd abandoned. The promise he'd made to his mother and the nagging conscience so desperately in need of salving, plunges him headlong into a whirlwind adventure which brings him into contact with an evil underworld inhabited by violent gangsters, drug barons and... the love of a beautiful woman.
By Conscience Bound is a heartbreaking story of love, adventure and bitter revenge. It sprints internationally and breathlessly through time and memory before inevitably hurtling to its spectacular and brutal climax.

Meet the Author

Vincent (Jack) Frost.
I was born in Stamford, Lincolnshire and grew up on the Mediterranean island of Malta, returning to Britain at the age of fourteen. In 1979 - after a period in a children's home and a tempestuous time as a grill chef (I walked out when the soup boiled over never to return!) I joined the British army where I served in the Royal Artillery in Germany, The Falkland Islands, Northern Ireland and as a United Nations soldier in Cyprus. Leaving as a senior NCO, I remained in Dortmund, Germany where I took on a variety of jobs, including building work and english language instruction.
Returning to Britain in 1997, my employment continued to be interesting with jobs such as vehicle test examiner and residential social work in a children's home.
By Conscience Bound is my first book, although I have written book reviews for a magazine. My second book - Dead Or Alive In Purgatory - is now also available and takes an irreverent and unbiblical look at my idea of the afterlife.
The Sunday Times of Malta has also published an article about my history on the islands. Favourite Channel (Malta) has aired a news item about my novel and Radju Hompesch (Zabbar Malta) were kind enough to air a 60 minute discussion programme about my history in relation to By Conscience Bound. Newly released is the true story and inspiration for my work titled The Boy In Wellington Boots which along with By Conscience Bound is now available in print.
Now available, cop thriller Front Stack - first in a series.
My varied life continues...
