Description

PI Lucy Clewes stumbles into a secret war raging in the back streets and shadows of London. To buy time she hires a former soldier, Miles, as personal security. But soon a chilling prediction becomes a visceral reality: they will all be dead before the London Olympic Games opening ceremony, three short weeks away. The discovery of a dead British agent in the wardrobe of an apartment she recently visited leads to a precarious game of cat-and-mouse with the police and a brutal adversary who is always one step ahead. As old friends are lost and new alliances formed, no one can be trusted. The chase gathers pace as money, spies and bullets fly from all sides. Lucy must confront her ghosts or perish and Miles must grasp a chance for revenge to find his own redemption before they both become the latest fatalities of Britain’s most secret war.

Phone Call Alert! 

(Please read, thanks.) 

Old Timey Switchboard Operator Cartoon

 

Due to the COVID-19 onslaught, we currently cannot take incoming phone calls.  

 

A notification about phone calls:  due to the COVID-19 plague, we've significantly increased our incoming inquiries--nearly double our usual volume--and the number of incoming inquiries by phone has been literally overwhelming.  Although most writers will say that their call "will only take 15 minutes," the truth is, that after 10 years of doing this, most author inquiry calls take an hour.  45 minutes at best. I'm currently receiving 7-10 calls/day, and due to that, I've had to stop accepting incoming phone calls, which my voicemail will tell you. You can leave a message--I can't call you back without one--and if a call is needed, I will of course call you.  But we have very complete and extensive email replies, handouts and our website is very informative. Almost all the questions that I receive during a call are actually already answered on our site, or are, in fact, publishing questions, not questions about our services, what we do, what we offer, or the like.  I already handle between 90-130 emails/day, as it is. I can't handle that many emails and take 7-10 hours of calls each day. I can't. So, in order to be able to answer this huge email volume, to help the greatest number of people, with my time, I've had to stop accepting calls.  I'm sorry, but that's just how it is. I'm in the process of setting up a call-appointment function, for free 15-minute calls to answer questions from new prospective customers and longer paid sessions for folks who generally want consulting on "publishing," generally (and for prospective kids' book publishers, as a special category of paid consulting).  But that functionality isn't yet set up. I hope to get that working the 3rd week of July, sometime.  

Thank you for your understanding.
