The Hurricane's Tail

Product Code: KP20

Price: £12.99

Son of ambitious immigrant parents, educated at a grammar school and Sussex University, as well as being an occasional County cricketer (and his footballer brother plays for Tottenham Hotspur and England), Detective Sergeant Harper Buchanan is one of a small number of modern ethnic cops gradually gaining more rapid promotion to the higher ranks of London’s police force, the Met, despite endless accusations of in-house racism. However, to his great annoyance, he is suddenly pulled off normal duties to act as bodyguard to Sir Walter Julien, Prime Minister of a leading Caribbean island, who is under a death threat. Sir Walter is due in London to undergo a complicated heart operation. What irks Harper, is to be assigned to a 24-hour role he considers boringly routine, undoubtedly because Scotland Yard and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office judge him to be a cop of the right colour.But it turns out to be more than just the “nanny” protection job that Harper thought it would be, as he is drawn into a wider, more sinister world, code-named “Operation Hurricane”. In the process of which, he meets up with an attractive French detective, cigar-smoking Charlotte Plennard, who provides him with even more surprises... What people have already been saying: “The author knows a thing or two about pace and tension, and paints an effortlessly true picture of how some Caribbean islands can be engulfed in political corruption... Superb thriller, utterly compelling.” – Sir Trevor McDonald “If you want a wise, human cop, this is your book. Simply the most interesting ’tec to appear in print for years.” – John Nettles “Captivating... a rousing read.” – Celia Imrie This book is available for Kindle from Amazon.
