The NEW James Pace thriller has arrived!
SKELETON GOLD: Scorpion
Recently returned from the Amazon, James Pace is looking forward to a rest when a century-old mystery turns his life upside down again. When an old seaman's diary, clutched in the skeletal fingers of a dessicated corpse, is discovered in the Namibian desert, the McEntire Corporation becomes immediately involved. A long-forgotten WW1 submarine, code name K-45, lost without trace in 1916 is suddenly thrust back into the limelight. On a covert mission for the British Admiralty, carrying tons of illicit gold bullion to fund the Top Secret 'Scorpion' project, the British Government is suddenly desperate to find it.
Pace and his team must track down the submarine, retrieve the gold and, more importantly, recover all traces of Scorpion...whatever it is. But they are not the only players in this deadly game, as Pace will soon discover. Murder, treasure, treason and a lethal new enemy await him as he tries to discover why Scorpion is so important, 100 years after it was lost!
Someone is determined to open Pandora's Box and threaten the world with annihalation...Pace must keep the lid firmly closed!
Book 1 - RACE AMAZON: False Dawn Book 2 - RACE AMAZON: Maelstrom
James Pace, ex-RAF helicopter pilot and amateur cameraman, is still wondering what to do with his life when a child's bullet nearly kills him. Dragged unwillingly into the limelight, he is quickly recruited as a video diarist for a charity race, set deep within the remote Amazon basin.
Drawn into a deadly political game, he soon finds himself cut off from help and fighting to survive against terrifying odds. Forced to take the battle to his enemy, he must risk everything to find a way out of the jungle alive and discover a terrifying truth.
Contract killing, kidnap, ruthless ambition, and a roller coaster adventure that he never signed up for!
The bullet was on target. Unbelievable pain exploded across his chest in time to the gun’s thunderous point-blank discharge and he was flung onto his back. A scream echoed the gunshot as his mind reeled and he struggled hard for breath. Each gasp ripped at his insides.
Unlike every good book the man had ever read, a comforting darkness did not wash over him, nor did the pain fade into numb oblivion. Instead it kept right on stabbing him between his lungs. There were more screams, this time further in the distance, or were they close by? Were they his own screams even?
5 stars Impeccable. Non-stop suspense & exciting page-turner
A seriously exciting read with a riveting storyline. Action, murder, assassinations, double-crosses, suspense and more. An exceptionally well written and cleverly plotted book which culminates in a roller coaster of a resolution. A real page-turner by an extremely talented and creative author.......
A MUST read , but be warned once you pick it up you will not be able to put it down . There are so many twists and turns to the plot you just cannot predict the ending.......
Baker's Dozen...the first batch (Poetry)
No final words, for what is there to say?
A life filled with promise and one cast away.
Priestly mumblings silence, my doom now arrives,
I tremble and quail, my flesh still alive!
A black hood for my eyes, no more light shall I see,
As my mind shrieks with terror, I cannot break free!
I open my mouth, to repent and to pray,
But no time do I have as the floor drops away.
5 stars Some great poems
I enjoy reading poetry and some of these poems, although personal to the poet, were reflective & thought provoking. A good selection.
I have to admit that poetry is not really my cup of tea and I was a little unsure how much I would enjoy this read. Topics range from war, life, crime, dementia and birth. My favourites include Damned, Zombie and Hope - with Zombie being a really hard hitting theme which will have affected many readers.......
