Product Description

Product Description

Falkland’s War veteran Glen Savage came out of the army with two skills. He knew how to kill and he knew how to survive. Fortunately, he also had a special gift that’s provided him with a living ever since. Savage is a psychic, the cops’ last resort when all the other last resorts have struck out: the man they turn to when they have a murder, but no body.

But not everybody believes in the Savage myth, and just lately the gift is looking more like a curse. Glen is forced to take any job that comes along just to make ends meet.

An Asian girl vanishes. Has she been kidnapped, as her father claims, or is she running away from an arranged marriage? A Pakistani boy is snatched from a Glasgow street and turns up dead in the ruins of a Borders castle. As he tries to track down Gurya Ali, Glen gradually realises the two events are linked, and when the body count begins to rise he knows he’s involved in a desperate race against time to save her life.

It quickly becomes clear the killer knows more about Glen Savage, than Savage does about the killer, and as he's drawn into a web of intrigue dating back centuries, Glen has is increasingly certain his opponent is playing games with him. War Games.

More About the Author

Douglas Jackson is the author of the successful historical novels Caligula and Claudius and my next book Hero of Rome, the first of a new trilogy, will be published in July 2010. I was born in Jedburgh in the Scottish Borders in the summer of 1956. Educated at Parkside Primary School and Jedburgh Grammar School, I left three weeks before my 16th birthday with six O levels and no idea what I was going to do with the rest of my life. Luckily, a friend worked in the local employment office and got me a place on a Youth Opportunities Scheme. It turned out to be restoring a Roman marching camp at Pennymuir in the Cheviot Hills and I had a wonderful summer turning turf and dreaming of Romans. Later I joined my local paper and for the next 36 years worked in local and national newspapers in Scotland, including the Daily Record and the Scotsman. I left the Scotsman after nine years as assistant editor in the summer of 2009 to become a full-time writer.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Gem that needs a little more polish 17 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When a author moves to another genre I try to read it as if I have not read the author before and judge it as a first timer. I was not sure if I was completely happy about a psychic Sam Spade but that soon disappeared as Glen Savage had me totally involved in the hunt for the missing daughter of a Asian business man and the murder of three others. There is a nice mix of crime and historical ,as the pace hots up in the chase to find the missing girl, add in a tour of Scotland's Borders, with it history and Majestic Abbey's and you have the beginning 's of a very good crime series. War Games for me ticks most of the boxes that I look for in a first time author, 1. I like the main character 2. The support character's added to the story 3. Great research and feeling for the genre 4. I want more of Glen Savage and will buy the next outing as I feel there is a lot more to come from our new gumshoe.

This is what you would expect from Douglas Jackson and James Douglas combined. A history lesson, a geography lesson and a modern day crime to solve. A very well written story by a master story teller.

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant read 5 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I had the privilege of getting an advance copy of this book by email whilst struck down with malaria in Ghana at Christmas time. I started reading it as soon as it arrived and couldn't put it down! An added bonus (for me) is that some of the story is set in and around my native Jedburgh and it was weird being able to picture where everything was happening. I would thoroughly recommend this book and all Doug's other books whether his Roman ones or the Jamie Saintclair series by his other name, James Douglas

4.0 out of 5 stars Scottish scenery 30 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoy his Roman fiction so I thought I would give it a try. I read it through quite quickly and looked forward to my daily returns to it, about an hour or two a day life or wife permitting. Value for money certainly. Makes you almost interested in visiting the lowlands of Scotland in a touristy sort of way. As to the story, not too formulaic and eventually you seem to care for the main characters. I would be interested in reading further adventures of the psychic investigator who overcomes all odds but not easily ( no Serpentius to assist here).
