'Immensely suspenseful and intelligent. Dean ratchets up the tension with a lean muscularity that will appeal to Lee Child fans.' Stav Sharez - Author of 'A Dark Redemption' and 'Eleven Days.'

'Slickly written, cleverly plotted and hugely action-packed thriller.' Chris Ewan - Author of 'Safe House' and 'Dead Line.'.



Sometimes a man must take a step back to move forwards...

In a small, sleepy Pennsylvania town, the staff of a loan store find themselves at the mercy of a gunman who demands they hand over the store's entire cash reserves. But when the sound of

customer hostage in order to make his escape.

Former Marine James Bishop is no stranger to being on the wrong side of the law. Finally a free man,
he has the chance to get his life back on track. But as he flees the scene of the hold-up with his
terrified hostage, he once again finds himself a wanted man...

Prison can change some people. But has it changed Bishop?

Find out in Backtrack, the exciting follow-up to The Wrong Man. Available in hardback, paperback and Kindle at Amazon and Waterstones.



Nine hundred and seventy three days. Thinking. Planning. Waiting for the perfect moment.

Former Marine James Bishop will only have one opportunity to make his prison break. And one
chance to prove that he isn't responsible for the murders that put him inside.

Three years ago Bishop was the leader of an elite close protection team hired to protect a millionaire and his daughter. After a brutal attack by a well-armed assault team, Bishop regained consciousness to find seven bodies strewn throughout the millionaire's Long Island mansion - including those of his two charges - and a mountain of evidence guaranteed to send him down for murder.

But to find out who set him up and why, Bishop needs to be free. And now the time has come to
make his move.

Short Stories


She's already escaped her captors once. Surely twice would be impossible.

Kidnapped and left for dead, Sylvia Caplan knows she's got one chance to get her life back. Wearing a few stolen clothes and totally exhausted after running all night, she stumbles into a dingy bar, hoping
for salvation. But its not long before two menacing figures catch up with her.

Unnoticed, former Marine, James Bishop, witnesses the woman's struggle and steps in before he
knows what he's done. Now Sylvia is on the run again, but this time she's not alone. Can Bishop help
her stay one step ahead or will he come to regret risking his life for a stranger?

ONE GOOD TURN can be downloaded for FREE at Amazon. Also includes extracts from the
first three James Bishop novels.



Twenty years ago Eric Stepanovich saved a man's life. Now it's time to return the favour.

Struggling for traction in the recession, Stepanovich and his poker buddies hit on the idea of raiding a drug-den and taking a stash of unmarked cash from the drug dealers inside. After all why should the criminals get richer if those who operate within the law can't? The raid goes to plan but two months later, two of the four men are dead.

Fortunately Stepanovich saved the right man - fellow ex-Marine James Bishop. Used to operating on
both sides of the law, Bishop is convinced there's a link between the money and the deaths, despite a
lack of evidence and Stepanovich's refusal to believe he's in danger. But will Bishop discover the truth
in time to keep his friend alive - or is Stepanovich about to pay the highest price of all?

This exclusive James Bishop digital short story is now available for download at Amazon.



James Bishop isn't looking for trouble, but trouble has a knack of finding him anyway.

Dropping off a friend at Chicago's busy Union Station, Bishop spots a woman on the concourse acting suspiciously. She's clearly in distress, yet when he tries to talk to her she eludes him and vanishes. But he spots her again as she's boarding a train, and with nothing but gut instinct to go on he decides to follow, and soon finds himself embroiled in a cat and mouse game in which nothing is as it seems.

Why is this woman on the train, and why is she is so paranoid about somebody touching her bag?
Does she really need help, or is she involved in something far more sinister? Only Bishop can find the right way to deal with this problem. And he's prepared to do whatever it takes to fix it.
