Meet Lucas Gedge, ex-soldier and spy.
The first novel in the Lucas Gedge Thriller series. In 1890 London, a former soldier and spy returns home, intent on settling down to a quiet life. But he is soon drawn into a world of abduction and murder. When his daughter is placed in deadly danger, he must use his special skills to save her and bring the criminals to justice.
A mystery involving a cult worshipping the gods of ancient Egypt leads Gedge into a deadly struggle. To find out who murdered his friend, he must contend with the cult and the local mob, while a ghost from the past threatens his friend Polly. Again Gedge must draw in his strength and wits to stay ahead of his enemies.
When the third novel opens, Lucas Gedge is at his lowest ebb. His former commanding officer and a nemesis from his days on the Afghan frontier are both drawn into the story, as Gedge is forced to leave London and head for the moors of Scotland in a quest to confront his demons and avert an international incident.
