Lee is a native of Walkden, Manchester and currently has two novels on the market.

When Donald Mason, a notorious drunk, walks into a London police station claiming to have seen an actress long believed dead, it's only the beginning of Inspector Sladek's problems. Haunted by the suicide of a vulnerable young woman and only a few weeks from his retirement, Sladek is reluctant to listen to the rantings of the one time actor. But when two friends of Mason are butchered and it looks like he is responsible, the inspector has little choice but to investigate. It isn't long before Sladek realises that Mason is innocent and that powerful figures in government and beyond are going to great lengths to hinder his own investigation.

Are Mason's claims that Dorothy Kite is still alive, true? And if so, is it really connected to the SAS led Oman coup of the early seventies? From London to the finale of the Edinburgh Festival, Sladek is racing against time to save Mason from ruthless assassins and from his own demons.

Although Echo of Death is a contemporary thriller it is inspired by real events. On 23 July 1970, Said bin Taimur was deposed and replaced by his son, Qaboos bin Said. The British involvement in the coup is now well documented but at the time, Edward Heath, the then prime minister, said it was a story never to be told in his lifetime. Qaboos bin Said remains in power to this day. 

EOD also introduces Lenny Sladek, a second generation pole police inspector based in London.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read 3 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I enjoyed this book so much I tell everyone to read it! My hubby was rushed into hospital and whilst hanging around waiting for tests and results I was reading this. The looks I got for laughing out loud was priceless. I will even go as far to say that I will probably read it again soon.
The book is written well and the stories are incredible, to think they are all true!

I loved this book. It is a somewhat unusual format, well written funny, poignant or downright creepy short stories interspersed by an autobiographical account of Lee's life that brought him to writing & the incidents that gave a starting point for the stories. Lee has a real gift for setting the scene & creating an atmosphere. The stories border on that fine line where absurd meets could just be real & the account of his life will strike a chord with anyone who finds themselves looking back at the last forty years & wondering what the hell happened. It will certainly make you look twice at any regular drivers who deliver to your house & wonder if you come across as that odd...! I eagerly await his next book & I hope this one gets published in paperback as I certainly want to read it again & my partner got a bit cheesed off at constantly having to hand over his i-phone for three days.

5.0 out of 5 stars Confessions of a Deliveryman 29 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a humorous as well as an eye-opener for those who use delivery men. Have you ever wondered about the situations the man who delivers your groceries finds himself in? If so buy this book and chuckle at his experiences and embarrassing moments. A really enjoyable read. I highly recommend this book.
