A woman is pulled from the boot of a car on a Spanish clifftop. She's lost teeth and is a bloody mess. Masked gunmen are hell-bent on killing her. Miraculously surviving a shoot-out and a breakneck car chase, resulting in many deaths, the woman is revealed to be British Secret Intelligence Officer Daisy Scarlett.
Daisy knows her guns as she does her fine wines. In fact, she loves a drink, which is mainly due to her strained relationship with her alcoholic father, her boss - the head of MI6. Her mother is a whistle-blowing conspiracy theorist, so it's of no wonder Daisy is torn between finding out the truth on behalf of the people or pleasing her father and the State.

About the Author
Born in 1975, in Royal Greenwich, Trebilcook knew from a very young age he wanted to work in the film industry. First seeking a special effects career, he soon decided against it, after awkwardly entangling a model's beautiful long hair in a ceiling-suspended vacuum cleaner during a shampoo commercial. Trebilcook, whose elder brothers followed their father into a police profession, found writing was less hazardous. He did, however, idolise his father, who had been machine-gunned by armed robbers, stabbed and even blown up by the IRA. When the Bruce Willis movie 'Die Hard' was released in 1988, he thought it could actually be based on his own reluctant-hero dad. He focused on the action genre, with his ultimate goal to write a 'Die Hard' movie for Bruce Willis. Having begun a career in producing and writing for the screen, penning a previous draft of 'Mission: Impossible 3' and an acclaimed 'Die Hard 6' spec, (Old Habits Die Hard), Trebilcook was sought by a friend to work to work within the education service, where he later became a qualified mentor and seclusion officer, managing the behaviour of permanently excluded teens. With every one of his disaffected students extremely challenging, there was a period of time when the majority were gang members and refugees from war-torn countries, including Afghanistan, Angola and Somalia. His debut novel 'My name is not Jacob Ramsay' is centred around his teaching experiences.
His second novel, 'Old Habits', formed the basis of his speculative screenplay 'Old Habits Die Hard', a potential sixth and final 'Die Hard' story, with Willis' character, John McClane. The story centred on McClane being invited to Tokyo by the Nakatomi Corporation to be commended for bravery in saving 36 lives from the original movie.
He heads the judging panel for the Rob Knox Film Festival, attempting to make people more aware of knife-crime and encouraging the creativity of young people. Ben Trebilcook can be followed on Twitter by the handle @BenTrebilcook
