The Laurie Sterne Trilogy #1
LAURIE STERNE feels like he’s been cut adrift in space. His father has been shot dead, caught in the crossfire of a gangland war that has also claimed his boss’s life. Laurie is a refugee who lost his adoptive mum years before and doesn’t know where he was born, let alone who his birth parents were. But he’s not alone in the world: someone is trying to kill him.
This is London, 2050, a dumping ground for climate refugees and dissidents. Gangs rule, murder goes unpunished and the police make sure you can’t escape.
In his struggle to stay alive, he finds an ally: his former boss’s secret daughter.
But with the killer predicting his every move, is the man without a past being betrayed by the woman who seems to offer him a future?

About the author
Once upon a time, not so long ago, I was a journalist on national newspapers in London; now I’m a full-time novelist and my dystopian future thriller The Black Ditch was recently published on Amazon.
Writing is my passion but I also have a masters degree in displacement activity.
I used to be a private pilot before the cost of bringing up two children clipped my wings so I now design and build my own electronics gear – it’s cheaper, probably safer and I can use the results to play tottering piles of CDs and vinyl that threaten to shift the tectonic plates on the Sussex coast where I live.
To be a writer you must be a reader and my tastes encompass most things to be found between book covers and on Kindle, though I’d probably draw the line at legal text books.
I enjoy hanging around waiting for flights at airports – the only places I’m free of that feeling I could be using my time more wisely – and I’d probably enjoy Michelin-starred restaurants and five-star hotels if I could afford them.
But, most of all, I enjoy the strangeness and wonder of the human animal. In the words of the late Arthur Lee, people are the greatest fun.
