It is all very well to be able to write books, but can you wiggle your ears?
I’m working on a short pitch for my new story. Short pitches sound easy until you try to write one. Honest to God. Impossible. Anyway, if you saw this on the back of a book, or in a proposal, would you be tempted to dive in?
A vast sky. An empty desert. And nothing for miles except a woman lying in the middle of a lonely road. When Charlie Lockhart stops to help, he finds himself drawn into a dark conspiracy and a dangerous chase where nothing is quite what it seems.
Lockhart is a rolling stone trying to stay one step ahead of his own troubles, but when an innocent girl is kidnapped and her deadly secret is revealed, he knows that walking away is not going to be an option.
When a US drone goes missing and bodies start to stack up Lockhart gets to work, uncovering the scale of the conspiracy and the psychotic mastermind at its heart.
With no one to trust and with time running out, Charlie Lockhart heads out into the desert alone, unarmed, and dangerous.
