I have changed direction somewhat and have written an historical novel.
A River of Retribution by Clive Ridgway
Note the name change!
Set in Georgian London, 1741, we meet Richard Hopgood, Gentleman and thief-taker.
A body has been found washed up on the mudflats of the Thames and Hopgood is summoned to solve the crime. We follow our man as he travels through London, unravelling the threads of the crime along the way. A Rosary and a Jacobite connection may mean there is more to this than just plain murder!
Available at Amazon in both ebook and paperback.

Coming soon, a new Gornstock short story!
Ever wondered how Gornstock was founded? Who discovered the Universal Collider? Well, your wait will shortly be over.
I’ll be giving you details on how to get your hands on this very desirable item soon.
This is an entertaining fast-paced detective story with interestingly flawed main characters. Sullivan ends up on the Rock of Gibraltar, via a secondment, having run foul of her superiors in the Met, while Broderick moved from London a few years previously through adverse personal circumstances.
Murder comes to the Rock and it’s down to world-weary Chief Inspector Broderick and D/S Sullivan to sort out the truth from the half-truth.
The main characters both have an interesting back-story and this is drip-fed into the narrative so that you can feel the angst and injustices they have suffered. The prose has much to commend, it is well written and descriptive with flashes of humour interspersed throughout. Though the book is on the short side, it is one that is well worth a read.
Congrats to the author on producing a debut novel that is both enthralling and entertaining. I will definitely read more of Sullivan and Broderick’s detective adventures.

I’ve decided to freshen up my books by giving them shiny new covers. Although I loved the old ones, I thought it was now time for a change. The cartoon characters are taking a well earned rest and are probably at this moment raising a glass in the Stoat and drinking to their success.
I hope you like the new ones, and here they are
Good, aren’t they!
