Brell Sturlach, in her early forties, is a disgraced former Police Corps senior officer, ex-convict and now cargo pilot. When her friend’s daughter, Spinney, is reported missing, Brell investigates the circumstances.
After initial enquiries stall, Spinney appears as a contestant on Cirkus Disturbanze, a bizarre fight to the death media show, run by a decadent crime boss. Brell vows to find Spinney, whatever the personal cost.
With little information available, and after Police Corps failures, she employs a criminal gang after lying to gain their release from prison. With her own liberty at stake, and accompanied by an android assistant, Brell must manage not only her new team but her own difficulties. In what she considers a suicide mission, she must find and stop the Cirkus show before Spinney’s final fight.
A science fiction action-adventure series. Intriguing storylines. Interesting characters. Humour. No romance.
Brell Sturlach, late thirties, former senior Police Corps officer, convict, and cargo pilot, is never far from trouble… but is determined to rebuild her life despite past regrets.
In Deep Yellow, she is in prison, after a career destroying incident, when she is selected to take part in Convict Challenge where she must solve clues, remain sober, and fight her way through a series of alien holographic ‘worlds’. Her challengers include ex-soldiers, a nun, and a man from her past, whom she previously tried to kill.
The first challenge takes place in the Rome world. At the beginning of The Search for Locardum, Brell is piloting her cargo freighter when Police Corps demand she find a large, hidden stash of Locardum - a rare ore used in creating deadly laser weapons. If she fails, she will return to prison.
Accompanied by an undercover officer and an unusual android, she is immediately in difficulty. The person who may provide vital information is likely to die in the latest version of Convict Challenge and a psychotic criminal is also seeking the Locardum.
The Fight for Locardum starts with Brell attempting to liberate a previous enemy of hers, who is due to be executed. Together with her android assistant and unauthorised Police Corps support, they must transport the Locardum to safety before it falls into criminal hands. As usual, nothing goes smoothly. Cue shootouts, raids, fights, explosions, and Brell’s pursuance of the man who murdered her partner.
The three books, previously published separately, have been refreshed, re-edited and released in this new version series.
Non sci-fi. Billie, a loner security guard, convinces herself that a reclusive author can provide vital information on the whereabouts of her missing brother. The brother she swore to protect after a family tragedy ten years ago.
She must overcome her aloofness and engage with strangers in order to progress her investigation. Things take a turn when two bumbling criminals kidnap the author. As their paths cross, events soon spiral downwards, propelling Billie into a desperate fight for her own survival.
Along the way, she interacts with a vicious crime boss, a dismissive female cop, and a drug cartel. Can she keep her promise to protect her brother?
