Editorial Reviews

Review

'A dangerous rip-roaring thriller with a wonderful witty flair!' 
"There is a well-integrated flow to the story. I found myself captivated by the detailed descriptions of people, places and countryside ...There are some tough, heartless characters involved in torture, animal cruelty and corruption. Yet they have more than met their match in Crombie, Wren and the other Celtic cousin, Rhyllann"  Doreen "Dody" Cox 
'More Please!'
"Vibrant and unusual plot themes abound in what can only be described as the wackiest police story ever told." Daniel
'Explosive from start to finish'
"The writing is suspenseful during moments of tension and gritty when action is involved, so the pace of the book is absolutely spot on. ...Phrases such as 'the PC Brigade' at the police seminar and 'the dog's personal hygiene' when describing a camera strapped to a dog's head provided real laugh out loud moments." Terry Lander, West Country poet, author and publisher. 

From the Author

Detective Crombie takes centre stage in this, the third Celtic Cousin Adventure  - elephants and alligators also feature. 
My grandmother's grandfather was a fire eater and a sword swallower. When the circus rolled onto Shepherd's Bush Green, in West London, he would walk elephants through Latimer Road and onto the scrubby acres of common known as Wormword Scrubs. Since the age of about four, the image of elephants strolling through Notting Hill has intrigued. Who wouldn't want an elephant in their back yard? Everyone loves elephants. Alligators - well - they haven't got such a good press - but still, these ancient reptiles from the dinosaur age hold their own fascination, and I couldn't resist adding Alfie to the fun. 
With such a diverse mix of characters, An Explosive Time became an author's dream - the story that writes itself. I had a blast putting poor Crombie through hell, I hope you enjoy reading as much as I enjoyed writing.
