Now finally on offer FREE in the UK: The Second Amendment #1 (it was price-matched at free with competitors a week ago in the USA.
If you've ever felt anxious travelling to the States because of the proliferation of guns there, or wondered why they don't (or are unable to) adopt the same strict gun laws as here in the UK - this book at the very least will intrigue you.
But my main aim has been to EXCITE - so this is a hard-hitting thriller from beginning to end as America's far right find themselves in a pitched battle against the FBI and key politicians for the hearts and minds of America over this thorny issue. Hope you enjoy it.
Also available: The Second Amendment #2

One simple thesis.
But it threatens the very
roots of the Constitution.
There's too much at stake.
20,000 gun deaths a year, schoolyard massacres, and now a wave of militia bombings... America is under siege.
At the heart of the storm is Josette Horvath, the FBI counter-terrorist agent whose world is torn apart when her young son, Daniel, falls victim to a militia bomb. Her brother Bernard's latest political studies thesis meanwhile focuses on the thorny issue suddenly foremost with the President and an outraged America: stricter gun control.
But Bernard doesn't appreciate just how momentous and far-reaching his thesis is destined to become. And as Josette, torn between tracking the bombers and coping with her son's fate, discovers the extent to which the far right have infiltrated the FBI and the White House - she realizes this is one final battle she can't possibly win.
An explosive, uncompromising thriller which confronts head-on one of the most fiery issues of the past two decades: gun control.
If Vince Flynn and John Grisham got together to tackle probably the most controversial issue of the past two decades - Gun Control - this is what they might come up with. Hair-trigger suspense all the way. Electrifying.
The FBI and Capitol Hill go head-on against the far-right and self-appointed militias in this no-holds-barred thriller. Amongst all the bullets and mayhem, the thorny issue of gun control is also handled sensitively - but don't expect much time to draw breath between the two. A 'loaded' issue in more ways than one.
A novelist of real accomplishment.
