Meet the Author

Born in the Northeast of England, I graduated from Newcastle University in Chemistry. My entire career has been in the manufacturing industry, first in research, then general management. After a number of years as the chief executive of a UK division of an American multinational corporation, I set up my own company, and in less than five years I was able to retire and turn to a boyhood yearning to write science fiction stories. This has gradually expanded to other genres such as alternate history and crime fiction.

    S's instead of Z's.

    It is commom to do that in England.
    Too bad there is no excuse for the rest of the poor editing.

    230 pages

    This 230 page book is set in England. It bounces back and forth between 1945 and 1990. This book was published in 1990. It is very convoluted, has a lot of characters and is not very well edited. There are a lot of words which are spelled with an s, when a z should be used. This book is not a fast read, it is written like a true crime novel. There are not any adult themes, cursing or detailed violence. There is an accidental burning which made me cringe. This book has a very undetailed murder and is espionage/ police in genre. It starts with a POW camp in WWII. There is no romance. I did not like it very much. It was choppy and rather boring. The characters were under developed. This book is more for men then women. ( but my husband did not like it either, he did not even get past the third chapter) I hope the next reader enjoys this book and leaves a better review.
