Blue Lantern


Set in Hong Kong at the time of the Cultural Revolution riots in 1967, Blue Lantern is a story of sex and police corruption.

Mike Brodie a young police inspector from Glasgow is caught between two women. Helen is a talented and virtuous doctor, whom he can't match. Vanessa is a sordid temptress whom he finds it hard to resist. He needs more money than he earns to maintain his lifestyle, and finds himself drawn into a world of corruption and bribery.

A man without a past, and a woman without a future. This is a novel about the friendship between a young musician, David, who has lost his memory in a car accident, and an older woman, Cathy, who is dying from Hiuntington's disease. It is a light-hearted look at the effect of degenerative diseases on those who care.

Gil Hogg has drawn on his experience as a corporate lawyer to write two thrillers, A Smell of Fraud and The Predators. His work for a national drug dependency charity for several years brought him into close touch with the culture of dependency, and led to his non-fiction book about how to handle stress, Teaching Yourself Tranquillity. Caring for Cathy is based on his family's experience of caring for a loved one with the degenerative disease, Huntington's.
