Mike Watson, an investigative reporter has problems. He's lost his job and his wife has walked out on him. But before he has time to feel sorry for himself he's dragged into a search for a former colleague's bride who mysteriously disappeared while having coffee in a busy Paris café. Watson's search takes him across Europe and exposes a massive insurance fraud and a chain of crooked nursing homes. It also brings him into contact with a former girlfriend he hasn't seen for a long time. Watson is accustomed to dealing with deadlines but the one he faces this time is different, The chase is gripping, the stakes are high and the opposition deadly. The cover photograph (taken by Vernon Coleman) is of a clock sculpture which used to stand outside the Gare St Lazare in Paris.
What readers said about the hardback and paperback versions:
The chase is gripping, the stakes are high and the opposition deadly.
I really enjoyed your book Deadline. It was so exciting I could not put it down. The best fiction I have ever read.
I am not one for reading novels but Deadline is brilliant. It should be made into a film. It is better than James Bond.
