It wasn't without problems. It was demanding and dangerous. Denver Stone and his team knew it, but did it anyway. Someone had to take the streets back from the drug runners, and his unsanctioned team of law enforcement officers stepped up. A story of action, intrigue, humor and romance. "Credible Justice."

I would like to share with you, an extract from my first book. Credible Justice: Fighting Back. Also as a reminder, any profits from the book will be given to The Police Dependants Trust and research into Chiari Malformation.
Tomorrow I will be Interviewed by ITV Border, which is a regional television company in the U.K. I am feeling pretty nervous right now! However I realise, that in order to push my book out there, that such experiences are necessary. Who knows where it will all end up. I had to smile when I saw that my book was on sale in places such as Moscow and Abu Dhabi? Its all go.
You can purchase the book via the following outlets. More are added all the time.
Credible Justice :Fighting back, is the pilot book in a series, following an unofficial team of law enforcement officers. The team, originating from the U.S. and U.K, fight against the odds, to make our streets safer. Challenged by dangerous adversaries, love interests and politics; they find the strength to fight for the victims. This book outlines their bonding as a team, and the vital start they make to secure a hopeful future for those forgotten by governments, who are throwing their weight and finances toward terrorism. The streets need to be taken back.
The second book in the series, "The Devil May Laugh," continues where the first story ended. Now well into the operation aspect of the job, the team continues their fight against injustice and against moral dilemmas.

“They will see our faces,” Cross said.
“Doesn’t matter, as long as we can do the job out of sight of others, and if we can’t, we back off to fight another day.”
“So if they exit the highway, we follow?”
“Yes, I’ve more faith in your driving ability than you have, Ty.”
“I’ve plenty of faith, don’t worry about that.”
“Great, let’s rattle their cages,” Stone said.
Cross felt an urge of expectation within him. His senses were more acute now, than they had been the entire journey.
“Ty, they’re moving across.”
“I see them,” Cross replied.
“Exit 28 coming up soon.”
“They are pushing across but not indicating...”
“I think they might be...” Stone was cut short.
“I’m on them.” Cross clenched the wheel and pushed his head forward.
“Maria, keep us on your system. I will update you!” Stone shouted.
“I’m locked into everything now. Judy and Steve are about a hour behind you,” Lozano said.
“Shit!” Cross turned the wheel sharp to the right,narrowly avoiding a car ahead. He pulled further down with his right hand and put his foot to the metal.
“We’re moving off now!” Cross shouted.
“Exit 28 to Ledgewood!” Stone shouted into his comms. The acceleration and maneuvering by Cross got them to the exit. The target vehicle wobbled and shifted dirt near to the verge.
“He’s not a skilled driver,” Cross said.
“No, he’s not. Keep on him,” Stone ordered. “Grainger’s looking behind now.”
“They are on to us now, stay the course,” Stone said. Cross was hyper vigilant. His training kicked into pursuit mode.
“Yeah, rest area coming up on the right; he might be... no, it’s a bluff.”
Cross closed the gap. The BM was more responsive to the road than the Ford. Stone’s heart was beating faster, as more and more houses came into view.
“631 Roxbury Maria,” Stone noted.
“Yes, Den, still on tracking system,” Lozano said. Cross eased off, aware of houses lined up on the left side. To the right was grassland.
“If I was driving that Ford, I would be on the grass at the earliest time,” Cross said.
“I think Mason might do that now. No, he hasn’t,” Stone relayed.
Cross was relieved. His confidence grew in his ability to out drive and out run Mason. It was all single carriageways now, but they were catching up with other vehicles already ahead of them. Cross controlled his distance, not leaving a suitable gap for an overtaking vehicle to get between him and the target. There was a high tree line both sides of the carriageway with no available gaps for the target to escape. Cross maintained his concentration, releasing his grip on the wheel to stop cramping. He closed a gap in front as a Harley bike was closing in from behind them. Staring in the rear view mirror and the side view, he could see the biker sweep past him and move on ahead toward the Ford. Cross closed the gap even more, forcing the Harley rider and accelerate past the target. Cross allowed distance once more.
“Damn! More of a built up area now, Ty,” Stone said.
“It isn’t a problem. I’ve got a handle on it, buddy.” Cross looked to his right across the front of his friend.
“Yeah, I know, mate,” Stone said.
Thank you for all your kind words and support.
