More About the Author

ANDREW SCORAH
(1965---) Born in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, and lives in the little village of Campsall. His writing has appeared in Action Pulse Pounding Tales vols 1 & 2 alongside best selling thriller authors Matt Hilton, Stephen Leather, Adrian Magson, Zoe Sharpe and Joe McCoubrey. Having been raised on a diet of seventies and eighties Pulp Fiction, and no he does not mean the film, books like The Destroyer series, Mac Bolan, et al,He intended his work to reflect those humble beginnings of his literary journey. His books are not the long drawn out War and Peace length tomes, and Andrew makes no apologies for this. He writes pure escapist fiction for the general entertainment of the mass audiences. Books that will take you out of the mundane everydayness of your life into a world of pulse pounding action and adventure, just like the old Pulp stories from back in the day. Yes there is violence,sometimes extreme, yes there is bad language, and slang, but the worlds his characters inhabit, this can be the norm. Some people will love them, some will not, it is the way the world revolves, different strokes for different folks. All you need to do is sit back buckle up and enjoy the wild roller-coaster ride, then at the end you can get off and rejoin your life. Don't read too much into them, they're just for fun.

The only thing for a writer
is to be himself
and take the consequences.

You can contact him via email a_scorah@live.co.uk You can also find him on Facebook here https://www.facebook.com/AndrewScorahAuthor?ref=hl where he is always up to talking to readers, answering your questions etc.

This story is not for the faint of heart. It is heavy on action. By that, read violence. Andy Scorah makes sure there's scarcely a bullet left unfired on the US/Mexican border by the time the book hustles to its close. The author's instincts are very sure: if you enjoy the dark side of human life this will not let you down. He has a strong plot to hand and powerful characters to aid him. Jimmy and Jaime, like the Avengers' Steed and Mrs. Peel, are a couple with that hands-off relationship that works best. Their background includes a killing spree, and a safe with £60 million that was quite useful, but got them international warrants for their arrest. Now, as they find themselves in the border area, they are duped by the cops and arrested for drug possession. Then, oddly, they find themselves picked by a government agent to do the Feds work for them. The couple will not face drug charges or the international warrants, providing they find and dispose of a major threat posed by a Mexican strong man. There's no need to look for any more of the story. If I told you, it would be a quick end for me. Enough to say that, so long as you can stand violence and cruelty, don't stop to analyze the details too much but just let the pages turn as fast as pages can--you are in for a well constructed, clearly told, breathtaking story that is going to make its author very successful.

If you ever wanted a pillow-thumping, sweat-generating read, then look no further than,'Border Town Blues.' Andrew Scorah's keyboard must have been on fire when he wrote this. With characters like 'Jimmy the Horse' at his local watering hole, to double dealing post-Escobar's Medellin Cartel, to villains with more top drawer connections than a string of popper beads...Jimmy Doyle (the main protagonist) and his cute sidekick, Jamie Lee, are in deep doo doo right from the off...Having been tricked into a seemingly impossible mission, with the only outcome certain death, Jimmy survives...Just...Or does he?...It has an authentic, well researched feel, and a dazzling dialogue, combined with a grease lightning pace. And with an opening set in the the Arizona desert, all I can say is, make sure the heating is off before reading.

I had been patiently waiting for Andrew Scorah to follow up his debut novella `Hometown Blues' with this second outing for Jimmy Dalton and girlfriend Jamie Duggan. Although `Bordertown Blues' whisks us away from the original atmospheric settings of London to the borders of Mexico the journey is every bit a thrill feast as the original. By his own admission Scorah likes to cut through the frills and get to the point - usually at the end of a gun - and he doesn't disappoint in a story about the hunt for suicide bombers that rattles along at a frantic pace and almost makes you want to pause for air from time to time. I like Scorah's honest, insightful style. He is on a winner with the Dalton/Duggan partnership - one that we can expect will deliver more adventures in the not too distant future. Bring them on, I say.

Border Town Blues is a swift read and easy to get into. The writing is incredibly sharp, as it cuts like a knife. I was reeled in and sucked in from beginning to bloody end. Enthralled and entertained by all the action pacted scenes and the suspenseful moments.

I enjoyed the fast pace of this gritty adventure that was sometimes gory but that the same time humorous. We all need a laugh, even if it's at others expense. This is quite a blast. Most literally.

"Inside I felt like ice, any minute now death could reach out with its slick hand and mark us all. We stepped out to a day overcast with clouds; the sky knew death was abroad. I saw the man standing in the middle of the huge car park in front of the building. Armed Marines stood off about thirty feet from the man, their weapons drawing down on him. What good that would do I had no idea, I hoped none of them got trigger happy. One of the Marines was screaming at him to drop his weapon."

I first came across the author Andrew Scorah in the impressive ebook compilation Action Pulse Pounding Tales Volume One. Since then I have become very impressed with his writing. In this book we find Jimmy Dalton once again forced into a mission against his will. While on the run in America after the events of Homecoming Blues, Jimmy and Jamie Duggan find themselves crossing the border and up against all manner of villains in Mexico. This time round we've got DEA, cops, drug cartels and even shadows from Jimmy's past - all rolled into one explosive fireball of action. I didn't think anything could surpass the supercharged Homecoming Blues but Andrew Scorah takes Jimmy Dalton into the desert heat and turns up the firepower to 11! He even finds time for some skateboarding while fighting the bad guys! Be warned these action tales are not for the faint hearted. Enjoy.

What to tell the author after others review it in so good terms! I was hooked from the beginning when starting the novel and I couldn't leave it before the end! At a moment it reminded me Cormac Mcarthy in his Border trilogy. The core of the story concerns the relations between those two human beings, Jimmy and his (girl)friend Jamie! The end displaying the fight between a former Brit Special Force and a Chief Taliban skilled in martial art is an excellent part. I really appreciated it! I'd like to know more about what happened before, because there are some unknown events about the Dalton's life in London! And what about his life when he was in Afghanistan! Border town blues is an excellent book, a novel I recommend to everybody!Could be an action movie!
