Book 3 Pleasures

Nail-biting suspense, combined with a ‘coming of age’ thriller…


Book 3 – Pleasures

Perry Hampton is a man who is used to the finer pleasures of life: wealth, power, a beautiful wife and mistress and two magnificent properties. His life should be perfect but it is not: a few miles away, lives his most deadly nemesis. Her name is Eleanor and she possesses a file, which he truly believes could destroy him.

Eleanor is driven by her quest to prove Perry’s evil: she has pledged to do everything she can, to protect and avenge those she loves. So when a trail of clues draws her towards uncovering Perry’s most covert secrets, she cannot resist following them – aware, his spies are watching her every move.

Perry will not rest until he can overpower her community – a ruthless campaign whereby he enlists the help of old faces, including a senior planning officer and a former London gangster. Perry knows how he can unhinge them – even if it means encouraging his only son, to immerse himself into the dark labyrinths of the criminal underground, thereby granting him a dangerous advantage.

Eleanor’s son Elijah is finally drawn into their secrets; the younger generation are growing up fast. It is a notion which inspires them to inaugurate their own fight. Yet, this is the catalyst which sparks a war – one which will bear deadly consequences and where there can only be one winner.


Some of the locations in Pleasures are real places – Pimlico in London, Kronenburg Park, Nijmegan and the Old Bailey (Criminal Court) in London.
