Nowhere to hide…

What should have been a relaxing vacation in Paris turns into another unwinnable situation for expert criminology consultant Leopold Blake. Caught in the cross hairs of a ruthless assassin and on the run from the police for a murder he didn't commit, Blake and his team must fight to clear his name before it's too late.

As enemies close in from all sides, Blake is about to learn who he can trust – and who is determined to destroy him – as The City of Light becomes a new hunting ground. Wanted is another exhilarating instalment in the Leopold Blake series of thrillers, which can be read and enjoyed in any order.

Interview with the Author

Q – So, what makes the Leopold Blake series special?

A – It's a mix of things, really. When I set out to write these books, I wanted to create something that mirrored exactly the kind of books I like to read. My top picks are usually private detective novels, any of the thousands of thrillers and mysteries best sellers, and, of course, books featuring your classic pulp heroes. Basically, anything with a kick-butt attitude and fast-paced style gets my vote.

The Leopold Blake books are a great mix of these genres. You'll find the series focuses on the mystery and thriller / private detective genre overall, with a couple of financial thrillers thrown in for good measure, some political thrillers, and a serial killer novel or two to keep things interesting!

Overall, the Leopold Blake series is designed to keep you turning the pages – and I've made sure there's never a dull moment.

Q – What order should I read the books in?

A – I’ve written the series so you can read the books in any order, and all the story threads will tie up nicely by the time you're finished. If you do want to read them in order, I'd suggest the following sequence:

– Paydown (prequel)

– Wanted

– Panic

– Departed

– Ratio

– Fallen (coming soon)

Q – So, why should readers give these books a try?

A – Because the Leopold Blake series is a fast, fun, thrill-ride that takes no prisoners! Each of the books has hit the top ten bestsellers list on Kindle for Crime Thrillers, and each have been featured on Amazon's Thrillers 100 Must Reads list – which is no mean feat.

Ultimately, readers who enjoy lightning-fast pacing with a plot that twists and turns all the way to the end will get a kick out of this series.

Q – Can readers get the whole series in one go?

A – Sure. I've put together a few bundles if people want to save a little moolah and grab all the books in one swoop. Check out my author page here at Amazon for more details, and a full list of my available titles.

And thanks for reading!

A Solid Thriller

This time, Leo and Mary are getting chased all over the city of Paris as they investigate an art theft at the Louvre and a murderous sniper. Our heroes are in and out of the crosshairs through much of the story, pursued by villains and the police.

Echoes of The Da Vinci Code, with a twist

Wanted is a fast-paced thriller, packed with technical details that will please readers interested in arcane knowledge of Renaissance painting and nano technology.

Really like the series. The story was interesting and their was a twist that surprised me. My only compliant was that the author kept switching between consultant and Blake when describing Leopold, and assassin and the assassin’s name in the same chapter. It only happened in part of the book, but it was confusing.

A fast-paced thrill ride

Leopold Blake shows up at the Louvre to investigate a stolen painting and winds up becoming the target of a German sniper. A good, quick, fast-paced thriller that kinda puts in mind Robert Langdon meets James Bond.

Twist and turns

This story is the ultimate version of international intrigue with a little personal business included. Makes me want to stay in the good ole USA. Can’t wait to read the next one.

On the edge of being unbelievable but still pretty good, storyline is plausible, but life and death is too easy. Can kill off people and walk away this easy

I have read all 6 books in the Leopold Blake series. I have thoroughly enjoyed the character development of Leopold Blake, and the relationship between Blake and Sgt Jordan. I am anxiously awaiting the release of the next book. I highly recommend this series.
