Fog on the Tyne is a trilogy, covering three murder cases which were investigated by D.C.I. Jack Renton, a dysfunctional old-school detective.
Resident Fear is set in a context of political intrigue, social unrest and organised crime. There is also a backdrop of high technology being bridled by ethics protesters, and government cover-ups.
Frankenstein involves a serial killer who uses the internet to embarrass the police, by posting relevant information for public consumption. Such a cat and mouse scenario annoys Renton intensely, as it is effectively a window for the world into his department.
The Red Kite Killings is Renton’s last case. He has to return from a vacation to inspect a body which has been recovered from the River Tyne. He becomes obsessed with an old case because of the almost identical M.O. His team shows concern about such delusional behaviour, until a second corpse is reported. He begins to suspect a copycat killer, but why?

About 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.
