A valiant Crusader knight wearying of the long journey on foot home to England from the Holy Land after the Third Crusade decides to retire to a monastery in Greece. There he will write his eyewitness account of the heroic battles between Richard the Lionheart, King of England, and the mighty Salah al-Din. Centuries later an anonymous collector engages a French bookdealer to find that original rare manuscript and to smuggle it out of Greece. When the bookdealer is found dead in his flat in Bordeaux and the ruins of an ancient monastery in an isolated valley in Greece are mysteriousy disturbed, Commissaire Pierre Rousseau and Chief Inspector Antonia Antoniarchis begin their third investigation together in the endless quest to prevent precious ancient artefacts from being stolen away from Greece.

More About the Author

After publishing several French text books during my career in education I am now enjoying writing fiction. This is in part due to a challenge from my daughters who suggested I try fiction instead of 'all those boring text books'! My novels still reflect my love of languages and travelling and so have an international flavour, both in terms of the characters and locations. Another enthusiasm is photography and this has influenced the very visual way in which I describe places and people.

Joker in the Pack (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004KSQ1I8),

is a spy novel in which a former student radical in the 60s, David Raffo, now a Cabinet Minister decides to investigate the file MI5 kept on him in the past in an attempt to identify those who informed on him. Word quickly spreads and threatening emails appear on his pc. It becomes clear that someone high up in the secret services is desperate not to have his identity revealed. As David and his researcher, Anna, get closer to identifying all the informers it becomes clear that the final clues lie in Prague. David had gone there with a student delegation just days before the Russian invasion crushed the Prague Spring of 1968. Anna goes to Prague and is helped by an old girlfriend of David's, but their lives are put in danger by unexpected CIA involvement...

The Pierre Rousseau Mysteries series:

Achilles' Helmet, [http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004LGS4NO],

The Athenian Connection, [http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004LLIKME],

The Crusader's Chronicle, [http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004N636Z])

Return to the Parthenon [http://www.amazon.com/dp/B009NCZWFE]

features French and Greek detectives who are fighting to prevent the illegal export of stolen works of art.(This sort of theft is sometimes referred to as 'elginism'.)

Secret collectors commission thefts to order and a colourful gang of Italian tombaroli, tomb robbers, do the spade work. The settings are in France, Italy, Greece, England and Scotland with an international cast of detectives and villains.

There is treachery, murder, kidnap and romance. If you like 'foreign' detectives such as Aurelio Zen and Guido Brunetti then you will love Commissaire Pierre Rousseau and Chief Inspector Antonia Antoniarchis. The theme of each novel also involves some historical background and time switching betwen the present and the past.

First chapters are on my website: http://www.vidocqpress.com for you to sample. Do go to the site for more about me and the background to the books.

Commissaire Pierre Rousseau also writes his own blog on http://vidocqpress.blogspot.co.uk called Pierre Rousseau's Diary

All my novels are available on Kindle of course.

I have now returned to my roots too! As a result of my time as a lecturer at the Open University of the UK I researched into methods of learning languages and have now put on Kindle the fruits of this experience in the form of short books entitled:

How to improve your French when working on your own

How to improve your German when working on your own

How to get the best out of your French/English Dictionary

How to get the best out your German/English Dictionary

I agree! The titles are not very sexy but they do exactly what they say and I hope you will find them useful.
