Martin Wild, failed soldier, failed policeman, finds success as a security consultant. Following the murder of his lover, policewoman Eileen Padget, he steps into the world of nightclubs and illegal drugs to trace the killers. Skills learnt in his former military and police lives are put to use and the evidence provided ensures the arrest of those responsible. Subsequent errors by the police and the CPS in preparing the case result in the gang being freed and Wild now becomes a target himself. Driven by grief and anger he adopts the maxim ‘an eye for an eye’, setting out on a second mission, but this time with deadly intent. His trail of vengeance shatters the quiet of a Scottish isle, the peace of a Dorset bay and the civilised routines of a French Department.
The author's training in Scene of Crime investigations at New Scotland Yard followed by years combating drug misuse in the nightclub world ensure that events and dialogue enjoy a realism not always encountered in crime novels.

About the Author
Following military service, the author spent some years as a police officer with experience in the CID, Scene of Crime, Crime Prevention. This was followed by a move to the commercial security world, where he set up a security consultancy whose services were used by a number of UK/international companies and high profile entrepreneurs. These included Porsche Cars, NM Rothschild, Fisons, Pirelli General, Peter de Savary etc. One of the successful specialisations provided was countering industrial espionage by de-bugging premises and telephone systems. After some years as an independent, he joined previous clients Mecca Leisure and Rank Leisure, to act as their Security Advisor, dealing with problems posed in nightclubs and multi-leisure centres across the country. By necessity this period concentrated on drug and drink misuse and related violence. Published work includes a chapter on industrial espionage for the Crime Writers Handbook, commissioned by the Crime Writers Association, an in-house Operational Security Manual for Rank Leisure and sundry minor articles for magazines.
