June 1981. A young girl is on the run after assaulting a teacher. An Italian 'businessman' and his bodyguards are killed in a violent shoot-out. Meanwhile DI Mick Fletcher is surprised to be invited to a society wedding only to find out it's a cover for Special Branch to send him to Barrow-in-Furness - the 'longest cul-de-sac in the world'. A new submarine is to be launched there on the 1st of July and undercover contacts have got wind that a terrorist attack is planned. Fletcher insists on taking newly promoted DS Irene Garner along for the ride - but neither of them is ready for the mayhem that spirals out of their control as the day of the launch approaches. Too many players in a never-ending game of blind man's bluff which reaches an unexpected and shocking conclusion. This suspense thriller was originally written for and performed by a teenage cast in 1998 at Parkview School in Barrow-in-Furness under the title 'A Frost of Cares'. The teenage characters and their stories are woven into this longer, murkier and less forgiving world of adult secrets and lies.

His involvement in outdoor education, taking city kids into the wilds of Snowdonia, the Lake District and the mountains and islands of Scotland, have provided the backdrop for his London cop's adventures. He moved to France in 2006 to enjoy retirement - although serious bouts of DIY and gardening have kept him busy! He began writing the Mick Fletcher suspense thrillers two years ago and has not been able to stop since!
