Lawrence Lander is an operator with Bureau 7, a newly formed and secretive organisation specialising in black ops and deniable operations in the murky world of international espionage.
Only a matter of months after being recruited by the enigmatic Mr Skardon, Lander is selected for an assignment involving the theft of secret intelligence from Britain’s GCHQ intelligence-gathering organisation.
ISIS hold hostages in the Syrian desert and their whereabouts and schedule of movements are included within the stolen data. The access key is held by British-born ISIS commander Ali Ahmadi – known as “Animal Ali” – and he isn’t about to give it up without a fight.
The heart-stopping action takes place during the culmination of the operation to obtain the password allowing access to this vital information. The question is, can Lander secure the password and initiate a rescue mission before the hapless captives are savagely murdered?
The must-win finale of Operation Minx takes place against the backdrop of the worst storm England has seen for many years, and Lander is pitched against a seasoned, ambitious and desperate fanatic who will stop at nothing to prevail.
Bureau 7’s newest recruit – already struggling to come to terms with PTSD and the pressures of working with his beautiful and ambitious Israeli partner, Rivka Levine – must take on his baptism of fire and win at all costs.

Who am I? I’ve often pondered that difficult question! The truth is I’m one of those cliches. You know the one: the youngster who, from the age of about six or seven, spent hours in the public library – long before Google and the current plethora of online click-of-the-mouse resources – trawling the long aisles of books. Sometimes I’d just look at the covers, enjoying the design and typography. ‘Geeksville’ or what!
Then real life took over and I joined the Army at barely sixteen before becoming a police officer in my mid-twenties. After that, I spent a lengthy period in the health & safety industry looking after of all kinds of vehicle fleets. That took me to the oil & gas sector in the Middle East where I’ve been been for almost eight years. I’m not yet a full-time writer. To be so, has always been my ambition.
I created Lawrence Lander, the hero of Storm Bringer, with the intention of writing a series of novels and novellas about his work with Bureau 7. My intention is to develop Lander’s story and inject as many thrills along the way as I can. I think my readers will also be held by the development of his relationship with Rivka Levine.
I have a lot of experience of international travel, so be assured that Lander’s work will take him on journeys to many varied and interesting parts of the world. The way the twenty-first century is developing geopolitically means that Bureau 7 and its operators will not be short of work in exotic locations.
This novella is my debut. I’ve been a published writer of short fiction for magazines and a columnist in a newspaper, but this is my first effort at a book. I intend to write a series of Bureau 7 novels and novellas and am obviously hoping that people will enjoy them. In common with many of you, I’m sure, I consider it great to make money from writing, but it’s even better in many ways simply to know that people might read and appreciate what I do. At least I hope they will!
