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.

Homecoming Blues I would classify more as an action than a crime novel. The intensity of the action and the speed of events really gripped me and I read the book into two sittings. Scorah delivers everything you would expect from a good action novel: Violence, two sets of bad guys, a girl and of course the comedy sidekick. There were cockney wisecracks galore.
This kind of novel will never win plaudits for emotional depth but for sheer escapism action packed fun it was a top notch read. Fans of Matt Hilton and Lee Child will love it.
Homecoming Blues tells the story of a battered soldier who comes back to London from the war in Afghanistan and straight into another war between the local crime lord and the Russian mafia. Forced into a rescue mission we soon see Jimmy Dalton unleash hell on the kidnappers and anyone else who gets in his way.
This short novel is the literary equivalent of dynamite as the protagonist blasts his way through gangsters, gorillas and goons. For some the local London slang may be confusing but the author thoughtfully includes a glossary of terms used which allows the reader to follow the novel without getting too confused.
This story is essential reading for the explosive scenes of destruction and compelling narrative. Once you start reading Homecoming Blues you cannot stop. I would strongly recommend this book for fans of Andy McNab or anyone who likes the action genre. Enjoy.
This is a book that is full of action and suspense. I love how he gets right to the point. No playing around. This is a thrill ride filled with adventure and wit galore. This was a great escape.
“Two of the scariest noises in the world are the click-clack of double hammers on a shotgun at close range. The scariest thing to see is the twin barrels of said shotgun not a foot away from your face. This is the sight that greeted me on opening my eyes. Above the barrels hovered the face of Frankie Shenton. I might have known he would be the first to try for the reward.”
I loved the way he described his characters, for example: "He was a large confident looking man, with a face like a kicked~in lunch tin and a huge mars~bar across his forehead, giving him a permanent frown".
The main character (Jimmy Dalton) despite being a bit of a thug, was a friendly one and has great respect for his father and it really showed in the novel how much they loved one another...
This paragraph really made me laugh: "The lightening flashed and I was about to run again when I saw a figure descend the flight of steps leading down to the lawn. He was wearing a yellow rain slicker, the kind you see on a killer in a bad American flick. I tried not to smile at the irony of it". This made me laugh because my young son has one of those coats and it too made me remember "those" movies!!
"All the pain and anguish which had built up inside me, boiled out in an explosive energy. I picked up one of the baseball bats, when I had finished, his head looked like a shattered alien fruit from the blows of the bat". I had images flashing through my mind after reading this paragraph and could really picture all the action and brutal violence which occurred to a lot of the characters in the book.
A fabulous debut and I think it would make a great movie. I cannot wait for the sequel ~ it is bound to be a brilliant follow on to "Homecoming Blues".
Brilliant, Well Done Andrew :-)
Jimmy Dalton returns from his tour of duty carrying hell on his shoulders. He has no time to relax with his father, chill with some beers, not for Jimmy. He is thrust back into the action and uses his considerable skills to search and rescue the daughter of a local gangland crime boss. But all is not as it seems, betrayal is one step ahead of Jimmy all the way.
If you like fierce action, martial arts and gun play then this book is right up your street. Never mess with Jimmy Dalton.
FIVE STARS or this action thriller and highly recommended.
