In a future where a biochemical weapon has removed the skins of the population, the rulers hunt for the beautiful ones, those men and women who still have skins. They offer these humans four different genders of robots with which to have relationships. But the androids have human DNA and they have other ideas beyond the political programme.
When ex-Commando, Jack, leaves the Royal Marines, he becomes a hitman for the Sicilian Mafia and a highly sought after International assassin.

Comprising a fascinating and versatile range of stories previously published in great and ground-breaking cutting-edge paper and online magazines, this collection sums up the author’s take on noir. From urban decay to Gothic explosion, at once revolutionary, iconoclastic, erotic and dark as that cellar next door.
When the adult children of two wealthy families are kidnapped, private detective Earl Blake enters a labyrinth of lies and evasions as he attempts to rescue them. The kidnapper wants money the families can’t come up with, and Earl finds himself in a race against time to find Michael and Abby before it is too late.
Dangerous gigolo, Paris Tongue, takes women out of their lives, resurrects their sexual identity like an erotic priest. They are haunted by him, irredeemably changed. And when he seduces the wife of a Mafia boss, he finds himself in danger, hunted across Europe, facing change.
A crime novel about distorted love. A Western. A lyrical slice of the prairie, a frontier narrative. A noir novel about obsession and revenge, desire and predation. A look at one man’s grip on insanity and a story about female beauty and showmanship.
Surveillance and abductions, a novel about the age of digital publishing and what it means. A novel about physicality. When a publisher believes we are being turned into code he finds out he may not be wrong. Then he is arrested for a terrorist plot against London.
