SHE KILLS

WAS IT JUSTICE?  WAS IT REVENGE? OR WAS IT JUST FOR KICKS?

Longing to rejoin him and revive what to her was a ‘love affair’, she sets off on the road to his last known address in Andorra. Unbeknown to her, bad guys are afoot and converging on her from three different directions, with three different agendas. Only when she is faced with the ultimate penalty does Warner show up, from Russia with love, where he has just eliminated a Russian torturer. Now it’s a race against the clock as he tries to track Liza down and, against daunting odds, free her from captivity.

CONTRACT: IMPOSSIBLE

THERE WAS NO WAY TO BE SURE HE HADN'T KILLED THE WRONG MAN

When Warner encounters a beautiful woman in Spain, she seems to know too much about him for her own good – and his.  His suspicions are borne out when he is approached to undertake what he considers to be an impossible contract, and connects it with the mysterious woman. The contract is too lucrative to refuse and sends him off to Budapest in search of the victim who hasn’t been seen for eleven years.  His new friend Angela comes to join in the search, and they embark on an affair that turns out to be the first step on the road to his demise.

“Warner doing what he does best – eliminating the opposition. Terrific read.”

ROGUE FEMALE

SEXY, TOUGH, RELENTLESS – NOTHING GETS IN HER WAY

The Cote d’Azur.  Jewel of France.  A hundred miles of beach-bordered, palm-fringed coastline that includes those other jewels, Monte Carlo and Cannes, not forgetting Cap Ferrat with its billionaire homes overlooking the blue Mediterranean.  And of course Nice.

Nice represents the dark side: protection rackets, prostitution, drugs, illegal immigration, and lately kidnapping for ransom.  A series of high-profile abductions has the police floundering.  The latest victim is Steve van Houten, a vacationing American with a billionaire father.  His eighteen-year old companion, Charlotte MacNeal, is scooped up with him.  But Charlotte is no ordinary tourist.  She is there to visit her half-sister,  Brigitte Janneau, a former undercover officer with the Nice National Police, recently dismissed for the unlawful killing of a wanted hoodlum. Brigitte sets out to rescue the couple, pursuing her enquiries with scant respect for the laws she used to uphold.
