I'm British born but grew up in Johannesburg, South Africa. Currently I live near London with my wife and daughters, where I work as a doctor in the National Health Service. Ratcatcher is my debut novel.

Ratcatcher by Tim  Stevens
"This one was a very pleasant find. The rat catcher is non stop action and suspense. I am always on the lookout for a good series and this is book 1 of 3. The main character Purkiss is well formed and thought out with a great back story. Great char..." Read more of this review »

Thin Rich Bitches by Janet Eve Josselyn

Well, I got this while looking for Skinny Bitches Diet books, sort of fits but was clearly a chic-lit novel. I figured it was a self publish because of the cover, but it looked fun so I got the kindle version.

As a forty-something male reader of thrillers, I'm not the obvious target audience for a book that fits into the broad category of 'romance'. But I found myself taken, indeed captivated, by this little collection of five short stories and three first ...more

“His world turned on its head for the second time at precisely ten eighteen p.m. He’d been taken into custody a little under ninety minutes earlier, but that had nothing to do with it. They did the job efficiently, boxing him in, two in front and two behind. Four men, swift and grim, clearly plainclothes law enforcement officers. One of the men in front of him stepped close, said something. He shook his head. ‘Non parlo Croato. Solo Italiano.’ The man nodded as if unsurprised, tipped his head: come with us. He followed the front pair to the unmarked saloon parked up on the kerb ahead. Before he got in the back he glimpsed the glitter of light off the restless water of the bay, the masts of the boats shifting in the embrace of the marina at the bottom of the hill. He glanced at his watch. Five past nine. Fifty-five minutes to go. * The room was a cliché: ivory linoleum curling at the edges, dusty fluorescent lighting strips with one bulb flickering like an eyelid with a tic, cheap wooden tabletop with metal legs bolted to the floor. The smell was of tobacco and sour sweat. He sat facing the door, alone. After seventeen minutes, at nine forty-four by the clock on the wall, the door opened. A woman came in, dark-haired, with glasses like an owl’s eyes. Two of the men who had picked him up followed her in. One seated himself in the chair. The other leaned against the wall, arms folded. She stood across the table from him, his passport grasped loosely between her fingertips like a soiled rag. Without introduction she said, her Italian accented but fluent, ‘Alberto Manta, of Lugano, Switzerland. Arrived in Zagreb on September second. Checked in at Hotel Neboder here in Rijeka the same day.”

“He viewed the male obsession with the motor vehicle, particularly here in the United States, as profoundly unhealthy. And possibly suggestive of an underlying sexual perversion. Now,”
