Glasgow, 1975. How do you cope when your boyfriend kills himself because of you?

When Bobbie Sinclair’s boyfriend commits suicide and blames her, she vows never to love again. Instead she chooses to lead a double existence, kind-hearted by day and promiscuous by night. She struggles to maintain the balance between light and dark and is sucked into the world of a controlling and ruthless Glasgow crime lord.

Set against a vibrant 1970s urban backdrop, this Scottish noir plots Bobbie’s desperate plight. Constantly afraid of her past catching up with her, she battles danger, adversity and drug addiction on a long and perilous road back to love.

Love’s Long Road is a dark, gritty thriller about guilt and the fear of retribution; it captures to perfection what it was like to be young, female and single in the 1970s.

A Friend in Deed [2]

London, a few years from now. The Russian government has set up and secretly controls the new populist political party that governs Britain

Duncan Jones, freelance political journalist and blogger, loses his weekly column at a national newspaper and turns to investigative reporting. As he visits Moscow and Ukraine to discover more about the politicians who now govern Britain, scandal follows intrigue, dark forces attempt to silence him by whatever means possible and he turns to an unlikely ally for help.

A Friend in Deed is a slick and intelligent psychological thriller set in an all-too-believable near future. It is also a story about how one man confronts the traumas in his past and works out how to resolve them.

Silent Money [3]

He achieved what he wanted – but he didn’t want what he achieved.

Glasgow, 1972. Michael Mitchell is ambitious, talented and determined to succeed. But he learns the hard way that he will never achieve his goals in life – unless he plays by a different set of rules.

He partners with a small-time crook to help the Glasgow underworld launder the proceeds of their crimes. As the operation grows, Michael is forced to become more and more ruthless to protect what he has built up. Shocked by what he has become, he decides to leave the criminal world behind him and start a new life, respectable and honest. But the past has a way of catching up. Finally, he gambles everything on one last, desperate attempt to break free.

Silent Money is about how one person's morality becomes corrupted when society treats them unfairly, and how it then becomes impossible to keep from sliding into further depravity. It questions what we mean by good and evil, and shows the wickedness to which a person can stoop in order to realise their dreams.
