Broken Relationships, From Russia With Love and Pizzas to die for?

I bet that didn’t make you think of Zagreb, the capital city that even those who’ve made it to Croatia, rarely bother to visit... and yet...

London: The Weekend Off - a new travel thriller just published

Yes, it's official, I've just published my second novel:


a Rom-Com Travel Adventure Thriller - 

and I've already got a review for it...


 Tom Edwards has a new book out on Amazon. He describes it as a 'rom-com thriller'. It's that rare entity - a story told in the present tense that actually works. Funny and scary by turns, it tracks the path of a tour guide who gets mixed up in stuff that's none of his business - in between bedding beautiful women and falling over an array of fascinating characters - all in a rare weekend off. Check it out at the link below.


Satima Flavell

Leading hedonistic tours around Europe, Nick is used to the surreal. But he isn’t expecting it to follow him home to London - and that’s before he wakes up with his boss’ girlfriend. Then there is the missing £2million, the Turkish mafia, the drug squad, being dumped by his girlfriend and having his sister kidnapped. Will true love triumph by Monday? Or will his reluctant housebreaking and losing his trousers, all prove to be in vain? And what’s with the footballer?

It must be a sign

While not of the calibre St Peter experienced en-route to Damascus, I’ve seen some great signs on the road this year and they tell you much more than you first think, about the cultures they come from.

Something to ruminate on


SHAKEN 'and' STIRRED


Interesting to see, with the world under threat from Ebola, war in the middle East and a thousand other cares, that Australia's Woolworth supermarket chain felt it necessary to take out a advertisement in a major newspaper specifically to inform us of the fact that Green's Pancake Shake (Banana flavour) was no longer available. Be thankful for small mercies I say. Tonight, we may all sleep easy in our beds...

Monday Rides Again -Just Published

Hi Everyone, 


Just wanted you to know I have a new Novel out available through Smashwords or Amazon called Monday Rides Again.


And here is what I think it's about:

1985. Jack Monday had been a war correspondent, one of the best, until the wrong people died. 
He quit, got a reporters job in London, met an American girl, fell in love and tried to forget the past. Life was good.
But she had problems too...and secrets. She dumped him - long distance.
That was the day they blew up the oil refinery and his editor sent him to New York to interview the owner. He went, but only to win back his girl.
It should have been simple, but she'd disappeared and so had the refinery's owner. Then he met the movie star: pretty and hard-boiled. Did she want to kill him or love him? As for the Chinese Warlord: he clearly wanted him dead and suddenly New York was too dangerous for him to stick around.
So there he was, on a Thai film set with a movie star as a new side-kick. Was this love or confusion? It was just a pity her father was the enemy.
And what were his old war-buddies doing in Bangkok? And why were the CIA involved and what did they have to do with his girl being missing?
That’s when the shooting started in earnest and he found himself chasing kidnappers and smugglers from the docklands of Bangkok to the jungles of Burma – both hunter and hunted. 
After the last time, he’d vowed he’d never go to war again, he was no hero, but sometimes it was the only way and neither the ghosts of his past or the woman he loved could hold him back.
And he still had to save the girl. 
It was time for Monday to ride again

Or read the review:

Amazon.com: 5.0 out of 5 stars  1 review
5.0 out of 5 stars A very good Holiday read, will be a film if the right producer reads it! 3 July 2013
By Pop - Published on Amazon.com


First - its not a Western!

This book moves along at a good pace with something always around the next turn, as I read, i could not help putting actors forward for the principal parts, who would be Monday (Ben Affleck in my mind) and who would be the leading ladies?? I had Hayden Panettiere as Tara, Megan Fox as Nina, and Nikki Read as Kate. I even found a cameo for Ring Star as the ageing photo journalist. But who are 'the villain's? - read it and see!
At the end you are left with questions unanswered so we know 'Monday will ride again'

So read it before it's a film - But if Ben Affleck reads it, it will be a cracking film.
