Adrian Magson is the author of 20 crime and spy thrillers, including the Harry Tate series, the Lucas Rocco series and the Marc Portman series. His latest books are ‘The Locker’ (Midnight Ink - Feb 2016) the first in a new thriller series, and ‘Hard Cover’ (Severn House - March 2016), the third of his Marc Portman novels.
Sheila Quigley has successfully moved away from her Seahills Estate series, yet in this the second of her new D.I. Mike Yorke thriller series, set on Holy Island, she brings her many readers the same degree of tension and thrills as she has in the past.
A close sequel to Thorn in My Side, this one finds D.I. Yorke’s Auntie May in a coma, Smiler, the irrepressible former street kid, seriously traumatised and fearful that he is going to be torn away from the few people he has come to trust, and Yorke himself on a hit list from assassins sent by The Leader, head of the organisation which, among other things, was responsible for so much evil and death on Holy Island. Now, though, they are gearing up for something much worse, and it promises to stretch further than the small island.
Sheila Quigley has harnessed a loyal following for her novels, with lots of pace, gritty imagery and characters constantly fighting to prevail against all the odds. This outing will not disappoint them.
