HAND OVER FIST (Out of Hand Series Book 1)
Martin Russell is a good man living in a bad
Once a successful businessman, he is at rock bottom
when, with barely enough motivation to face the future, he spends his last coin on a
bus ride out of the city. Then a chance incident near his home triggers a sequence of
positive opportunities, and an old friend, Hannah, elbows her way back into his life
and gives him back his self-belief.
His life, unexpectedly, could not be better as he
rebuilds his world. Old friends rally around him and his future is full of positivity.
That is until the phone call informing him that Hannah has disappeared and people’s
lives change forever. He needs friends more than ever; non-more so than John
Staples, known as Pin-up, the billionaire businessman with a network of connections,
who enlists disgraced ex policeman Bobby Tanner to help find Hannah.
They are all thrust into a world of half-truths where the
roots of evil run deeper than can be imagined; where all roads lead to the door of The
Chemist’s underworld empire of corruption. Bobby Tanner and Pin-up must uncover
the truth, and fast. Lives depend on it.

About The Author
It was a strange and twisting road that led to the
publishing of my second novel.
Born and raised in Bristol, England. I spent my adult
life in business, the majority of that time marketing cars. I eventually owned the
largest Saab specialist in the world, before a divorce put an end to that part of my
This led me to leave Bristol to live halfway up a
mountain in the Welsh valleys, start a part time six year English Literature course at
Bristol University, and attend creative writing classes in Cardiff.
My interest in English literature flourished and I have
won several prizes for my short stories. My first book, ‘Twenty Short Stories –
Settling a score,” reached No 6 in the Short Stories Best Sellers and is still
available. My second novel, a romantic thriller entitled Hand Over Fist
was released earlier this year
Chasing What’s Already Gone evolved
from a short story Carpe Diem in my second anthology Twenty
One Short Stories. I could not get the two main characters out of my head and I
had to find out what happened to them after the end of the short story.
I now live very happily halfway up that mountain in the
Welsh Valleys with my wonderful partner, Mari, and our rescue dog, Wolfie.
