Deep Secrets is an action packed detective story for younger readers. It features mysterious sea-faring and folk-lore elements... and a crime to be an exciting new adventure tale.
A submarine full of gold disappears. Do horrific creatures inhabit unholy depths where the Celtic Sea and the Atlantic Ocean meet the English Channel? These are mysterious deeps where legends persist and where animated sea kelp glows fluorescent in the dark. When the horribly mutilated dead body of a young monk is discovered washed up on the mainland in Devon, Scotland Yard becomes involved. Its two ace detectives, Inspector Luke and Sergeant Jacob, are sent to solve the mystery of a mutilated dead body from Mossy Island monastery. Thus begins the thrilling action-packed adventure story Deep Secrets, which features two ingenious detectives who are making a name for themselves in Scotland Yard by employing their superior deductive talents against dark unknown forces in the strangest of circumstances.
Assisted by the trusted Miss Aimee and Rosie May, they set off to investigate the curious activities of a strange new order of monks on the barren wind-swept island after the savage killing of Brother Tony by an unknown agent... or creature? The monks are led by the sinister Brother Marcus and the wily Brother Gasket. Along the way they encounter the crafty rogue, Captain Barney Bishop, and his rascally brothers, Jan and Jethro. What secrets are they keeping from good-natured, local Police-Constable, Tubby Wattle?.. and why? Can Inspector Luke and Sergeant Jacob get to the bottom of the bizarre occurrences? With plenty of thrills and perilous action, Deep Secrets is certain to capture the imagination of young reader's ages eight years upwards who are discovering the joy and the thrill of adventure storytelling. Deep Secrets is a compelling heart-pumping seafaring tale full of excitement, suspense and mystery, that is sure to delight younger and older readers alike.

About the Author

I'm an old sailor and author who wants to pass on to my grandchildren the same joy I discovered reading adventure stories as a youngster. Louisa May Alcott, Mark Twain, Charles Dickens, Robert Louis Stevenson... these were the authors that first inspired my life-long love of reading and writing. The first good story read by a child opens up an enduring love of books that lasts a lifetime and will surely lead them to the wonderful world of literature.
