Editorial Reviews


"A superb adventure-comedy... Lifting the Lid will grab you and pull you along for a fun and wild ride...
The story was fast-paced, and the light-hearted style keeps you smiling. The characters are lively and intriguing.
They leave you wanting to read more about them and their zany lives... I can't wait for the sequel!"
- Jennifer Reinoehl for Readers' Favorite

"It's brilliant!... You go from one hilarious, life threatening scene to the next and you'll never know where it's going.
You'll laugh so hard, you'll have to make a couple trips to the restroom... The writing is fast paced, funny and downright thrilling."
- Samantha Coville for

"The story is just so much FUN! It is entertaining, well-written, cleverly planned and expertly timed...
Johnson gives his reader variety in mood, pace, setting and dialogue, never giving them a chance to become
bored or to be able to predict where the story is heading."
- Joanne Armstrong for Ingrid Hall Reviews

"The twists and turns kept me on the edge of my seat, laughing all the time.
The story is intriguing, but the best part is just enjoying the frolic from one adventure
to the next...Lovers of comedic thrillers are sure to enjoy Lifting the Lid."
- San Francisco Review of Books

About the Author

Some readers have asked me if my comedy thrillers 'Lifting the Lid' and 'Heads You Lose' are partly autobiographical. Am I anything like the main character, Trevor Hawkins? The answer, quite simply, is: 'No, I'm not.' Okay, so I do own an elderly VW Transporter camper van (currently off the road), I do have a dog (five rescue dogs actually), I do have a low pain threshold, and I can occasionally be accused of 'anally retentive faffing'. But there the similarity ends.

Unlike Trevor, I live in Greece with my wife, Penny, two cats and the aforementioned rescue dogs. As far as I'm aware, Trevor has never written anything longer than a shopping list in his life, whereas I'm working on a new novel and two screenplays.

I hope you enjoy reading my books, and if you'd like any more information, please...
