Frank Blake's life changes by his discovery of great wealth. Irish Republicans and the CIA show unwelcome attention. Under deadly threat, Frank fights back and his enemies begin to die.
I was born in the County of Surrey, England on September 20th 1939. My parents were poor as most of my friend's parents were in those days; even so they gave me a wonderful childhood for which I will be forever grateful. Leaving school at fifteen with very few qualifications I began a five year apprenticeship at the end of which I was called up for my National Service and served the statutory two years in the RAF which was great fund. I married in 1963 and am blessed with a son and daughter who both have families of their own now and who made me a grandfather several times over. I progressed from engineering into sales and at the age of thirty-five started my own business in 1974. I have started two businesses and built them into saleable situations the last of which I sold in 2004. Having served my fifty years and although now theoretically retired I recently started another company which involves boats, purely for fun of course. My recreational sports have consisted of playing village football and cricket in my teens and early twenties, squash, violently, in my thirties, and offshore powerboat racing in my forties and early fifties during which time I grew to love and respect the sea. Today I have slowed down a little and find pleasure in walking, reading, the Cinema, eating out in local 'pubs, gardening and the occasional game of golf. I am trying to find the time to write action/adventure novels, and am well into my second with a story line for a third. I live in deepest Sussex, England, fairly close to the sea.
