TRINITY BLUE IS AN ASSASSIN HUNTED BY HER OWN KIND.
SHE WANTS TO LIVE A NORMAL LIFE.
BUT SOMEBODY HAS TO DIE FIRST.

Following a string of failed missions, Trinity—beautiful, deadly—has spent three years running from hit-men hell-bent on collecting the $10 million bounty on her head. The Russian—a vile, ruthless butcher—wants her dead. Forced to raid her dwindling caches of forged passports, money and weapons, hidden in cities all over the world, she turns to a former colleague and a past lover—now a mercenary—for help. Leaving carnage in their wake, they fight drug-fuelled killers and members of Soviet-era mafia until the streets of Buenos Aires run red with blood, the white Arabian sands of Abu Dhabi ignite, and the dark, mysterious Bulgarian capital—Sofia—is reduced to a bloody battleground.

 

ONE BULLET AT A TIME, the thrilling sequel to SHOT THROUGH THE HEART, is inspired by my emotions, my friends, my travels, my job, my mistakes, my successes and my imagination.

Tomorrow Ends Today

Book CoverTRINITY CAN RUN LIKE HELL.

BUT SHE CAN’T RUN FROM IT.

Following a lifetime of killing, Trinity—a beautiful, troubled assassin—grinds out a lonely and aberrant existence in the darkened alleys of Tokyo.

She bides her time, knowing the day will soon come when she must seek retribution for the death of her friend, Angel, mercilessly killed by her nemesis, Borisa.

In a moment of weakness she breaks her own code and forms a connection with a vulnerable target of the local Yakuza. Unable to suppress her primal instincts to shed blood, Trinity’s entanglement with the ruthless gang of killers descends into carnage, triggering a warpath across two continents and into Europe.

Meanwhile, Gabriel, a former FBI agent who still carries a torch for Trinity, is waiting in Athens. Conflicted about his feelings for her, he maps out her movements from afar.

When at last their paths cross, Trinity and Gabriel haunt the cobblestoned streets of Athens in search of Borisa. The Bulgarian crime queen is the final roadblock between Trinity and a new life, and Trinity will stop at nothing until Borisa is dead.

‘TOMORROW ENDS TODAY, the final instalment of The Trinity Trilogy, is inspired by my emotions, my friends, my travels, my job, my mistakes, my successes and my imagination.’

Fortress Bulgaria

WHEN ALL ELSE HAS FAILED

BEFORE IT’S ALL GONE

THE OMEGA UNIT IS HUMANITY’S LAST CHANCE.

Near-future Earth grapples with war, disease and rising uncertainty.

Fearing the worst, international military forces come together to create an experimental and secretive last line of defence―RAFAEL: the Ready Action Force Apocalyptic End-of-Life program.

Led by their Australian Captain, Halo, the Blood Patrol—hand-picked soldiers attached to RAFAEL’s Omega Unit―are cryogenically frozen in pods designed to orbit the Earth, only to be awoken in the event of imminent global annihilation.

When Earth suffers a series of cataclysmic events much sooner than expected, a worldwide pandemic spreads and transforms into something far worse than imagined.

Blood Patrol is deployed prematurely and suffers a botched landing.

Halo must regroup his soldiers and quickly adapt to an altered world. They encounter mystical caves, abandoned monuments to an ideology long gone, and an enemy unlike anything they’ve fought before.

In order to complete his mission and lead the Blood Patrol to defeat the frightening, zombie-like talasum now roaming the Earth, Halo—with the help of the alluring, green-eyed siren, Gemini—must first win the battle inside his head. If he can do that, and they make it to Gemini’s hidden fortress, they might just stand a chance.

FORTRESS BULGARIA will be planet Earth’s last stand.
