The Fallen Agent by Oliver Tidy @olivertidy @CarolineBookBit

It’s my pleasure to be taking part in the blog tour for the latest thriller from author Oliver Tidy, The Fallen Agent, the first book in the new Jess Albion series.

TFAThe Official Book Blurb

Jess Albion has recently started a new life on the other side of the world with a new identity. She used to be MI5. Then a job went bad, someone died and she was made an example of in the British courts. But MI5 look after their own. Or they did until rumours of a planned Al Qaeda biological terror attack on London started circulating. Now someone in the British security services is giving agents up in return for information. No price, it seems, is too high to save London from the ultimate threat.

When Jess’s fresh start is compromised she has a choice to make: run and hide and spend the rest of her life looking over her shoulder or go looking for the threat and snuff it out. On her own, she’d run, but she has Nick on her side.

The Fallen Agent is a story of love and hate, of loyalty and betrayal, of revenge and callous disregard for human life in the pursuit of satisfaction.

Operation Clean Up Day CoverThe Official Book Blurb

This is the story of two very imaginative little boys and their resistance to cleaning up their toys…

Two little boys are about to go out for the day to the swimming pool as a treat. But before they can go, they must tidy up all their toys – which are all over the house – as requested by their Mummy. The boys consider this a mission! The boys attempt to clean up their toys in various parts of the house while making all sorts of excuses to Mummy to leave the toys where they are. The boys are easily side-tracked when attempting to clean up each room, as they find themselves playing with their toys again, their imaginations taking over. They find themselves driving trains, defending castles from ogres, climbing high mountains, flying spaceships, catching sea serpents and meeting prehistoric dinosaurs. All while trying to clean up their toys!

Written by Jason Tucker and stunningly illustrated by Nick Roberts, Operation Clean Up Day is a fantastic journey through the imagination of two children, who can turn a simple set of toys into an entire fantasy world, whilst teaching children the valuable lesson of tidying up their toys after playtime!

There’s a search for a missing girl, and another for a serial killer: death holds all the cards . . .

Meanwhile in Minneapolis, homicide detectives Gino and Magozzi have a serial killer on their hands – two women murdered in cruelly similar fashion, with playing cards left on the bodies. But one card is an ace, the other is a four – it seems the killer is already two murders ahead.With both teams stumped, it slowly becomes clear the evidence is inexplicably entangled. And they have little time to unravel the threads: a twisted killer is intent on playing out the deck…

Review: ‘The Trial’ by John Mayer (The Parliament House Series)


Brogan McLane has been ‘Called’ to the Bar in the Scottish Supreme Court. Now a well established Advocate, he has ruffled more than a few feathers over the years. He is renowned for his passionate defence of his clients and his work in the field of International child abduction law. Despite his start on the wrong side of the tracks, his record within Parliament House and throughout his career is unblemished. Until now.

When High Court Judge Lord Aldounhill is found in his home, his carotid artery severed, it falls to Detective Chief Inspector Terry Imrie to investigate. Being a Judge, there are no end of suspects, people convicted in the Judge’s court, who could possibly bear a grudge against him. But enough to kill him? But when facts are presented, there is one man whose name stands out amongst them all. A man who has had a very public disagreement with the Judge which brought embarrassment upon the Judge. A man who has been alleged to have made threats against his life. Brogan McLane.
