His friends told him it would be easy money. Now he's been shot and ruthless terrorists are pursuing them.
They were honest men; what made Miles and Alec decide to steal millions from a foreign diplomat they were body guarding? Why did they want Luke Adams, their lifelong friend, to be a party to such madness? Moreover, how would they persuade Luke, a naturally cautious man, to consider such insanity? Miles and Alec both worked in the Middle East, they were tough and battle worn, perfect bodyguards. Luke had worked with the boys in the past and was familiar with their business.
After hearing the plan, Luke refused to have anything to do with it. Then he changed his mind, yet his character has not changed. He is still cautious; could it be fear for the safety of his friends, or is he learning things about himself he never knew before? Perhaps a reunion with Louise, his friends' sister, has made him think again. Louise, it transpired was to be at the French villa rented by the brothers; Karen and Laura would accompany her, the brothers had reasoned, it would be more natural if they were driving through Europe with female companions.
They were escorting the diplomat, and his gold, from his embassy in London to Marseilles. The robbery was a success. The three friends were delighted. Rich and delighted. All that remained of the plan was the road trip to Spain, to sell the gold.
The diplomat met his good friends, Hamadeh, and Hussein, in Marseilles. This charming, evil duo were the spearhead of a vicious terrorist organisation. The diplomat introduced them to his bodyguards; after all, they were never going to cross paths again!
Then the wheels came off.
Terrorists follow Miles and Alec to Spain forcing them to participate in a violent, personal, running war against their pursuers.
I feel like I am there in the middle of all the thrilling action, it is so vivid.
"Fantastic thrilling read, could not put it down." JG.
National security forces enter the fray as the terrorists close in on the brothers, during their overland chase from France to Spain.
"The main characters are interesting and likeable and the twists and turns of the story make the book difficult to put down. A great action story, highly recommended!" JR
A story for lovers of explosive, relentless action and intrigue. It will keep you guessing to the end and you will still be surprised.
"If you want a good action story this is the book for you." SW.

Hi, I’m Luke Adams; I’d like to tell you a little about the adventure I undertook in ‘Two Wrongs’ with my friends Miles and Alec Fletcher.
The Fletcher twins and I had been best friends since we were all five years old, they were real tearaways, and I love those two. In fairness, I have to say we were all tearaways and, as I was the biggest and oldest, I led them into any and every dangerous, mischievous or illegal adventure I could think of.
They run a successful bodyguarding business now, Romulus Security, working mainly in the Middle East. Every time they come home, we get together and have a great time. As for me, I am a business consultant; I am also quite successful and I have a lot of time to myself, as I have two associates who deal with most of the day-to-day work.
In summer 2011, they came home while delivering a Saudi diplomat and his colleagues to their embassy in London and later to a Saudi-owned business in France. When we got together, the twins dropped a bombshell in my lap. We were going to rob the diplomat of millions of pounds in gold bars! Naturally, I thought it was a joke but they laid out a plan before me, and I realised it was for real.
I told them to forget it, it was ridiculous, it was impossible and I wanted nothing to do with it.
Two days later, I had another discussion with the twins and gave them a real volley for implicating their sister Louise in their ridiculous plan. She and her friends were going to be with us solely to give the impression of a group of couples holidaying together.
They pointed out this would be particularly useful when we all drove to Barcelona to trade the gold. They had explained the plan in more detail and I now thought it was fool proof; when you check out the book, you’ll see why.
The starting point was the Saudi Embassy in Mayfair, where we would pick up the diplomat and his aides. We were also using another of the twins’ Romulus guys, an old buddy of ours called Tom Ramsay. He knew nothing about the plan but we were all glad to have him with us.
The twins’ planning was meticulous; the robbery was smooth as silk, we had one hundred, 1kg bars of gold before we reached the private Saudi jet at Heathrow. We had it made in the shade ...
Like a kick in the chicklets. You’ll

This is a thriller set in the north of England, where fear begets crime; and crime begets killing. The violent extinction of a ruthless crime family unleashes bloody vendetta against a city’s police force.
For too long the city of Manchester seethed in the grip of vicious criminal gangs, they propagated a subculture of barbarism equal to anything catalogued from the Middle Ages. The Greater Manchester Police set their sights on the most vicious of these gangs, led by the Brewster family.
The GMP assembled a task force of gangbusters whose leader, DI Stuart Corcoran declared a ‘zero tolerance’ policy on Brewster’s Fairfield Mob.
On a rainy, sticky night in 1999, Corcoran led his team into battle. It transpired to be the last stand for the brutal Brewsters. Trapped in the Fairfield Arches, in the shadow of Manchester’s Piccadilly Station, they met their bloody end. The GMP success at the Arches greatly subdued the other gangs and the citizens of Manchester now felt safe. Corcoran and his colleagues, DS Peter Enright and DC Kevin Jennings were the ‘Heroes of the Arches’.
Eleven years passed and without warning, a vicious murder shocked the city. Detectives found a bone-chilling note at the scene promising more deaths. The note made mention of revenge against the police and the GMP worked on that. They decided the note was from a surviving Brewster. They had believed that the Brewsters were all dead, shortly after the battle at the Arches.
A new task force headed by Corcoran’s protégé, DCI Beverley Holland, must find the killer before any further revenge killings occur. The note is the only clue the police have.
In a dark, unsettling atmosphere of hatred and determination, bodies begin piling up. The killer seems to know everything the police know, impossible, as that may seem. Enright travelled to the birthplace of the Brewsters in Ireland and discovered something devastatingly crucial to the case.
A recurring phenomenon in the stygian gloom was the young man in the black suit, who seemed to be haunting the city streets. An evil aura dripped from him, like filthy water from a broken sewer pipe.
Bev Holland and her team work tirelessly to solve the case, and every time they score a breakthrough, another victim is murdered. The GMP team is determined not to lose this battle and they are prepared to go to any lengths.
