Try peeping into "The Long Dark Ride" at 800 plus pages and the sagas that follow.."Cold Hard Train Ridin' Cash" and " L'Affaires Non Fini "....

I don't know if this will what you're looking for, but some of your comments make me suspect you might like my new book, Cosa Nosferatu. It's a crime/action/horror book that features Capone, Ness, and the Undead, in a unique combination. You might want to consider it.

Homecoming Blues-Coming home from war can be hell.

All Jimmy Dalton wanted after fighting for his country was a quiet life. But a notorious gangster has other ideas and Jimmy finds himself in a war of a different kind. Set on a path of revenge that may turn the streets of London red with blood, a path that may not only destroy those he cares about but also his sanity and his very soul.

Reader Reviews
Your work stands out as a fast-paced blood-and-guts action story in the British underworld made more sinister by the presence of the Russian mafia. Everything pans out like a well-choreographed dance routine with Jimmy in the lead, surrounded by a colourful cast of characters. I can envision this story digitalized for the silver screen, the fast-paced action, the dialogue laced with gangster slang, all there. Thank you so much for a rollicking good read.

Homecoming Blues is a cracking read for sure! The narrative is superb and sucks you into the story through the eyes of the protagonist Jimmy Dalton, a likeable fellow from a rough neighborhood. I normally find that books written in first person tend to annoy me...I'm much more a third-person kind of guy but the characters in this story sound and feel so real that I didn't mind a bit! Thumbs up for Andrew Scorah!

Hi Andrew; after reading your first two chapters my overriding impression of your book was gritty, and unashamedly so. The language used by the characters is streetwise and tough. Not many of the books that I have read so far on the site can compare to the darker images you portray.

Andy, Homecoming Blues has made a great start. The three-way conflict keeps us on our toes. The slang even I, an American, can follow. six stars. Keep it coming! jack hudson

The Blood King Conspiracy ((Matt Drake 2)) by David Leadbeater looks like a good read. I also heard that The Cut (Spero Lucas) by George Pelecanos is good.

Here are a couple you may like to try:
Stamp Out Murder and The Secret in Grandma's Trunk. Let me know if you do get one of them and if you enjoy it.

Try Stamp Out Murder or The Secret in Grandma's Trunk. Both are getting rave reviews and are selling really well.

This is a book about an unlikely hero set in an unlikely place. It is not a bloody whodunnit but the tension keeps you turning the page to see where the story leads. Crooked lawmen and people who feel entitled seem to have the upper hand. It's a great summer read.

I forgot to say that the name of the unlikely hero book is Deep Secrets in Tall Pines. Give it a try.

A decent historical thriller which is kind of steam-punky is Thomas Edison: RESURRECTOR by John Silver.

I read that book too! Really good. If you want a good summer read set in Miami check out Sabrina Simon's latest, "In The Stars". Let me know.

Finding your soulmates in surprising ways (Soulmates and Trials of life)

I don't know if this is a book that you would be looking for but had to try. Good luck

Start with "The Long Dark Ride". It starts out as a historical action adventure read, but half way through, the story line jumps ahead a century and reveals a realistic protagonist that would compell Jason Bourne to kneel in submission....
