Alice Bidebecker is the best Senior Counter Intelligence Analyst the NSA has ever had but she is feeling under-appreciated and disillusioned in the male dominated work environment. When she is approached by a mysterious man with an offer to work for him, massive wealth and a new life in Europe seems to lie ahead of her. She accepts the offer but her resulting disappearance sparks a major crisis in the US intelligence services, as they desperately try to find her and seek explanations for her apparent betrayal.  

As the initial investigations get underway, a link is made to a missing Professor and his assistant from the University of Minnesota, and their secret work on infectious diseases. In an ultra-secure European hideaway Alice also begins to realise that not everything is at is seems and her world spirals into crisis. Thrust together with the Professor and his assistant, Alice has to rely on the help of one of the guards, her cyber geek friends in the virtual world and ultimately her old team to tackle the crisis head on. 

Greed, betrayal, conspiracy, murder. Can she survive?

My first novel - The Lost Years - was published on the 17th September 2019. It is available from all the usual on-line retailers and most of the fantastic independent bookshops in Oxfordshire.

My second novel - Plutus - is currently in the production process and should be available in summer 2020.

I am currently writing my third book, with a working title of Deadly Connections.

I live in Oxford with my wife and two teenage children. An avid reader myself, I also enjoy playing golf and holidays with the family. I started writing in 2016 after moving to part time working, giving me the time to realise my ambition of getting a book written and published.
