The gripping story of a lost a daughter and a ring of depravity, blackmail and murder.
Murders of Misfortune tells the story of a troubled girl, from a wealthy family, who becomes estranged from her parents and goes to live in 1960’s London. She is soon caught up with a wild set of celebrity party-goers in the drug-driven, anything goes atmosphere that was the swinging sixties.
Up and coming young stars of music, film, theatre and fashion, together with the off-springs of millionaires, politicians and royalty, create a high-octane, free-wheeling setting for this story of misadventure and murder.
Two up and coming young investigative journalists, Emily and Steve Moon, set out to find what has happened to the lost girl and find themselves caught up in a conspiracy of lies, blackmail and deception. They are also under the spell of the atmosphere in London at that time but are determined to find out what has happened to the missing girl.
They follow a trail from London to Paris and then on to St Tropez.

After a lifetime of working in PR and Market Communications, I reached retirement and came to the inevitable question, ‘What to do next?’ I had spent my working life writing articles for business publications, copy for advertisements, brochures, video scripts. My wife, Sheilah, and I are both avid readers and during my younger years I also wrote short stories for magazines. With time on my hands I thought of writing a novel, and with encouragement from my family, I have now completed and published Murders of Consequence and Murders of Necessity.
My third Book, Murders of Mistfortune is set in the swinging 60’s and travels from Northamptonshire to London and on to Paris and St Tropez.
I also love music, particularly jazz. When I was young I played sax in a rock/blues band and, more recently, Sheilah and I formed a Jazz duo to raise money for charity. We both enjoy travel and have driven to many places in Europe including Paris, Rome, Berlin, Munich, and Amsterdam. I enjoy watching cricket and football. Our son Ben and I have been season ticket holders at Watford FC for many years.
I have lived all my life in and around Peterborough, which is in Cambridgeshire, UK. I love the fenlands of Eastern England and North Norfolk coast, so inevitably it is where my first two books were set.
