Bestselling author Mark Bolt’s plans to sever his links with high society life in London are scuppered when a crooked financier fears his next book will expose a conspiracy at the top levels of the horse racing world in Europe.
Expat Life in Europe
In this fast-moving adventure Mark is pursued from London, England, to the South of France by three people: his ex-partner, a woman scorned, a psychotic ex-terrorist with murder in mind, and a philandering Irishman who can’t keep his mind on his work. Expat life in Europe can rarely have offered up such mind-blowing consequences for all concerned.
A Murder Mystery
As Mark sets about restoring a centuries-old property close to Carcassonne in South West France he is befriended by long-established expats who have little idea how much danger the newcomer is in. A mysterious death alerts the gendarmerie who are unaccustomed to dealing with such incidents in a hitherto tranquil setting. Old relationships falter and new ones beckon. But reality has an unusual way of dealing out the new hands!
A contemporary thriller and a superb escapist fiction story!
