Nathan Sherlock is a world-renowned chef with a nose for great food . . . and murder.
Known by adoring foodie followers as "Nate The Nose," the cooking sensation's skills are enhanced by an unusual gift – a sense of smell far greater than a bloodhound. His olfactory powers propelled him to the apex of celebrity chefs and wine experts with TV shows, a massive social media presence and an eight-figure contract as pitch man for a giant food conglomerate.
Outside of his long-time confidante, Bonnie, the world doesn’t know the true extent of his abilities.
His nose allows him to pick a pear at the exact moment of ripeness. It directs him to shape menus that reignite the mojo in middle-aged couples.
And wherever he is and whatever he’s doing, if there's murder afoot, his nose detects foul play.
Nathan and Bonnie soon learn their well guarded secret isn’t so secret after all.
A Canada-US anti-terrorism agency conscripts the pair to sniff down an activist cell. The perpetrators have kidnapped a Canadian scientist and used his research into negative gravity to create a terrible weapon.
The anti-terrorism agents fear terrorists will drop icebergs the size of Manhattan on New York City or send armies spinning into the sky. One scientist predicts an amateur's blundering might accidentally launch everybody and everything into space.
By eliminating weight, negative gravity removes the need for fossil fuels, causing the world's oil markets to crash.
Terrorism, world oil markets, and the uneven distribution of wealth are the key ingredients in this dark and delicious thriller.
Here's what reviewers are saying:
"I was a little skeptical about how a super sense of smell can help a task force to capture a terrorist, but the way it was handled and written
was awe inspiring."
– Five stars, Rabia Tanveer for Readers' Favorite
"Gravity Games doesn't just involve; it immerses readers in the finer details of the story. Highly recommended for any mystery fan who also happens to cultivate an affection for food and special problem-solving abilities."
– Highly recommended, Diane Donovan for Midwest Book Review

About the Author
I'm being stalked by strange characters. One is a guy we suspect is a vampire but he's not quite out of the closet (Late Bite and Lycanthrope Rising). Another who denies he's the reincarnation of Sherlock Holmes is a world class chef and sommelier because he has the world's most sensitive sniffer. That gift also means he can smell murder. Okay, this is supposed to be about me but I'm a pretty dull read in comparison. For longer than I care to remember, I earned my keep as a daily newspaper journalist and persuaded Judy to marry me because I had a steady income. We raised two incredible daughters who have long since graduated from university and are smart, powerful women who make the world a better place.. All that time in newspapers I was definitely more Clark Kent than Superman other than the occasional flight of imagination. Now those practiced fingers are now tapping out thriller stories and, surprise! people seem to like them. I'm a fan of the Frederick Forsyth plot twist, an admirer of Lee Child's action scenes, and jealous of Seth Grahame-Smith's zany mashups – Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter. I hope my readers see elements of these writers in what I've written - pulse pounding action, gut wrenching plot twists, and whacky mashed up characters and genres. Judy and I live in Wortley Village, a quaint neighbourhood in London Ontario, far from vampires, shape-shifters and superheroes. Now that's personal.
