SEVENTEEN TALES WITH A TWIST

By the author of the Amazon bestselling novels ‘The Delta Chain’ and ‘Disappear’

Like switchback trails with their unexpected twists and turns, these tales lead us through a maze of mystery, murder and psychological suspense, deceit, obsession, romantic intrigue and family secrets. Switchback Stories explores the mixed fortunes of fate that can surprise any one of us at any time:

In Washington DC a charismatic anti-drug lobbyist is targeted by a powerful crime cartel. With precise planning, the assassins close in on their prey – alone in his house – only to confront the one scenario they could not envision.

A Boston airline disaster and an extraordinary twist of fate have given a selfish man the chance to commit an undetectable killing. No-one will ever suspect a crime has taken place. Is it the perfect murder?

An ambitious actor has a foolproof way of advancing her career, at the expense of another. Nothing can go wrong. Sometimes, however, everything going right delivers the most unforeseeable result.

A famed South African diamond, unique for its light reflecting brilliance, is guarded by advanced technology. A dynamic cat burglar uses a variation on movie stunt trickery to plan a daring heist.

An aging drifter forms a bond with a young woman and her son in the Australian countryside – what is it about their small town he finds both familiar and unsettling?

In England’s north, the ‘Last of the Lighthouse Keepers’ uses his knowledge of treacherous waters for a desperate act – setting in motion a chain of events even he is powerless to stop.

A collection of seventeen tales with a twist, by the author of the bestselling novels ‘The Delta Chain,’ and ‘Disappear.’
