         Race Amazon         

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?

Race Amazon Reviews

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.......

5 stars A must read
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.

Baker's Dozen...the first batch Reviews

 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.

5 stars  Pleasantly surprised            
 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....... 

Race Amazon & Baker's Dozen are completed works that can be purchased today.

Skeleton Gold: Scorpion (James Pace 2) is being released on 31st January 2015.

my new science fiction thriller is due for release in February 2015.
