Hunted by a superior foe out for revenge, can Dreadnought survive?

Commodore Cohen wants to use his new fleet to cripple the Koschite Republic’s war effort, by destroying their enormous shipyard at U-235. But after Admiral Morgan lost two fleets to Deathless ambushes, the Royal Navy can’t risk another failed attack.

When Dreadnought is sent to investigate Deathless asteroid mining facilities, Admiral Tomsk recognises his chance to deal a crippling blow to the Royal Navy, and also take his revenge on the man he sees as his nemesis.

With a brand new flagship, Tomsk pursues Cohen, convinced that he will sink his battleship and have his vengeance.

Will Tomsk get his wish, or will Cohen find a way to overcome him once more? Can Captain Warden and the marines gather intelligence that will reveal the Deathless plans?

After a hasty refit, he takes Dreadnought on a rescue mission deep into enemy territory to retrieve an admiral taken hostage by the Deathless. If the interrogators break Admiral Morgan before Cohen can reach him, the Deathless will gain a wealth of classified intelligence and an unbeatable advantage in the war.

But the odds are against them. Will Dreadnought survive the voyage? Can Cohen find the Admiral before he talks? Will Captain Warden and his Marines be able to rescue the hostage?

Together with the colonists, Warden and Atticus mount a guerrilla war against the invaders, driving them back in an attempt to save the city and secure the colony.

Book 2

A colony is under invasion. It’s time to send in the Commandos.

When the Royal Marines are called to New Bristol, they’re expecting their mission will be just another insurgent hunt. What they face when they arrive is anything but a spot of local trouble though.

After a brutal firefight, Lieutenant Warden finds himself leading the remaining Commandos in defence of the colonists. Their enemy has superior numbers, weaponry and armour. They see the colony as a soft target, but they weren’t counting on facing the Royal Marine Space Commandos.

Warden must bring the fight to the enemy, and bring it with all the fire and fury he can summon. With only their basic weapon packages and equipment available, it’ll be a tough fight.

Can one young Lieutenant and a score of Marines bring an end to the invasion?

Thieftaker by Jon Evans

Why was the murder of a local merchant so vicious?

Mere days after he takes charge of the Old Gate Watch House, Captain Edrin Loft must solve a crime so shocking that even veteran Sergeant Aliria Gurnt finds it stomach turning. With no witnesses or apparent motive for the crime, finding the culprit seems an impossible task.

But Loft has new scientific methods to apply to crime fighting. His first successful investigation caused a political scandal that embarrassed the Watch. Promotion to his own command was the solution. Known as The Thieftakers, they are the dregs of the Kalider City Watch, destined to spend the rest of their careers hunting criminals in the worst neighbourhoods. After all, what fuss could he cause running down thieves and murderers in the slums?

Old Gate and this murder might be the perfect combination of place and crime to test his theories. The Thieftakers are the best Kalider has at tracking criminals, and Loft must teach them investigative skills to match.

Can he validate his theories and turn the Thieftakers into the first detectives in Kalider?

Book 2

Edrin Loft will return in the future!

I have every intention of continuing Edrin Lofts story, but it’s just not on the cards until we complete the RMSC series. At the moment we’re working on book seven of that series which will run to at least twelve books.

I’ve had a couple of bad years, but I’m trying hard to get back on top form, physically, mentally and in terms of productivity. As and when I do, I might be able to sustain writing in both series at once.

Book two of the Edrin Loft Mysteries series is a work in progress. It will follow the adventures of Captain Loft, Sergeant Gurnt and The Thieftakers as they investigate the underworld of Kalider. The Thieftakers are on the hunt, looking for a gang of smugglers.
