Distinguished British diplomat Sir John Little seems to be living out his days quietly in retirement...until one evening he goes for a swim outside his beach house in the Bahamas and doesn't come back. Was it an unfortunate accident, suicide, or a well-planned murder? British Foreign Office employee Michael Burton and Bahamian detective Chester King are given the job of finding out. With little to go on, and still less volunteered by the diplomat's enigmatic wife and the unexpected heir who practices black magic, Burton and King discover that all is t what it appears.
When he is not in the office giving legal advice, or at home writing on a new book, Nick's favourite activities are flying light aircraft and scuba diving. He has a commercial pilot's licence and is an enthusiastic photographer. After living in the Netherlands for several years, Nick is now based in London. Death of a Diplomat is his first novel.
