A Fatal Drug

England. 1971. 

Reporter Simon Jardine is on the hunt for the story that will kick start his career and when a tortured, mutilated body turns up on his patch he can’t help thinking his luck is finally in. 

At first glance the provincial town of Derby is about as far away from the sex, drugs and rock-n-roll of London and California as it’s possible to imagine but as Jardine begins to scratch below the surface he finds that all is not well in England’s green and pleasant land.

Along with fellow reporter Dave Green and local DJ Tom Freeman, Jardine is soon drawn into a spiral of gangland drug dealing and violence that stretches from the north of England to the south of Spain..

Vinyl Junkie

England, 1974.

Reporter Simon Jardine and DJ and part-time private investigator Tom Freeman, attend a homecoming gig for a megastar band. After the show, Jardine and Freeman see a record company manager roughed up and threatened, later that night they hear a man was murdered yards from the gig.

These events mark the beginning of a thrilling chain of events that leaves even the hard-bitten Jardine breathless and in fear for his life.

As the stakes rise Jardine and Freeman are bounced between dishonest record companies, corrupt cops in the pocket of violent criminal gangs, and IRA terrorists who control the drug trade. 

The plot pushes relentlessly forward and climaxes when a shipment of drugs sails into a remote Scottish loch, where the forces of good and evil face each other down in a violent, fatal and bloody finale.


“Simon Jardine is a first-rate protagonist. Dogged, witty, hard-working and obstinate. Vinyl Junkie is tense and absorbing. Plenty of action, racy dialogue and a neat twist in the tail.” - M P Wright, long-listed for the Crime Writers' Association, Ian Fleming Sterling Dagger Award.
