Why I wrote this book

I wrote Maloney's Law as I am gripped by the power and effects both death and a split family can have. My protagonist, Paul Maloney, is haunted by his past and an obsession he can't let go, and his slow journey to redemption is, in part, a journey I think we all have to take.


If you enjoy Patricia Duncker, Maria McCann and Joseph Hansen you will enjoy my book.


Paul Maloney, a small-time private investigator from London, reluctantly accepts a case from his married ex-lover, Dominic Allen. Before he knows it, Paul finds himself embroiled in the dark dealings of big business and the sordid world of international crime. The deeper he pushes, the closer he comes to losing everything he holds dear. Can he solve the mystery and protect those he loves before it's too late?

This book grabbed me from the first page and held me until the very last, when I closed it, sniffling and crying. Readers, this is good stuff. But a romance it’s not, though it’s about love in all its forms, painful and beautiful. It’s a hell of a trip. Click here to read the full review.
