Hard Place - The Prequel

Hard Place – The Prequel is just some twenty pages long. This short teaser introduces Det. Insp. Todd “Ratso” Holtom, a London detective. In The Prequel, Ratso is on the French Riviera in Monte Carlo and tracking a London drug baron who is aboard his superyacht for dirty business. Ratso’s groundwork leads into the dramatic action at the start of Hard Place, a full length mystery thriller which opens with immediate tense and dramatic action.
I hope The Prequel intrigues you to buy the superbly reviewed Hard Place and gets you hooked on this new series involving Ratso, this risk-taking London detective.
