Pawns – New Peter Larner Novel in aid of Prostate Cancer UK
Upminster indie author Peter Larner will publish his thirteenth novel in October. His bestselling books Harpoon Force and Deathbed Confessions featured his Essex-based hero Jack Daly, but his latest book Pawns introduces two endearing characters in Josh Milton and Kellie Chadwick. The story opens on 31st October 2019.
Set after the fall of the caliphate and in the wake of an unprecedented terrorist attack near the Tower of London, the head of SO15 receives contact from an embedded agent long thought dead. It is Halloween, the night of a new moon. Is it a trick or a treat? Is Housemartin still active, or is it a hoax?
With resources stretched, SO15 are forced to place the two new recruits into the former home of the agent to await his possible return. Milton and Chadwick soon realise that they need to find the link between Housemartin and the mysterious murder of a man on the night of the bombing – and they need to do it before the bombers strike again.
Peter Larner has lived in Upminster for more than thirty years. Pawns is dedicated to the memory of former Upminster resident and Campion old boy David Allpress who died last year. All royalties from the book are being donated to Prostate Cancer UK.
