Swapping the grey skies of Croydon for the Costa Brava resort of Tossa de Mar, ex-funeral director William believes he has finally escaped his ultimate nightmare. At long last happiness is within his grasp. His seemingly perfect new life soon disintegrates when he falls in love with bestselling author, Sarah Barney. His desperate measures to draw a line under his own difficult past, prevent him from helping Sarah with her own demons. Each has a history they would rather forget that stalks their every move. With payback time for William drawing closer, his dilemma is whether to reveal the truth or add to the lies.

Authors Biography

My passion has always been writing and I am unable to imagine a day without putting the laptop through its paces. As a young boy I remember hiding in the wings of my father’s theatre in Harrogate, staring in awe at the actors rehearsing for a show that he had written. Irrefutably, a tiny slice of his magic, thankfully, rubbed off on me and became the catalyst for my storytelling.

Over the years I have gone on to produce over two hundred short stories, three novels and I am in the process of writing another one. Four of these stories were recorded in 1997 on the Shirley Ludford Show for broadcast on BBC Radio Wiltshire Sound. More recently I have become a regular contributor to a small Dorset magazine group. My interests include horology and being grandfather to four colourful characters who continually test my mind and bank account!


Story had me intrigued from the start! Enjoyed the plot and twists, could relate to the characters. Not my usual choice but love it!
