‘It’s brilliant!… You’ll laugh so hard, you’ll have to make a couple trips to the restroom.’
Samantha Coville for SammytheBookworm.com

‘The roller coaster ride is wonderful… The twists and turns kept me on the edge of my seat, laughing all the time.’
Long and Short Reviews

Lifting the Lid is available as an e-book and as a paperback from Amazon.

There are some things people see in toilets that they wish they hadn’t. What Trevor Hawkins sees might even cost him his life.

When Trevor hits the open road in his beat-up old camper van with his incorrigible dog, Milly, his quest for adventure soon spirals dangerously out of control. The simple act of flushing a hotel toilet transforms his life from redundant sales assistant to fugitive from a gang of psychopathic villains, the police and MI5.

Then there’s private detective Sandra Gray, who could cheerfully throttle him for turning a well paid, piece-of-cake job into a total nightmare. Or could she?

With more twists and turns than an Escher-designed bobsleigh run, Lifting the Lid is a comic thriller about how a single, split-second decision can change someone’s life forever.

    • Hi June.
      Many thanks for taking the trouble to leave a comment, and I’m delighted you enjoyed ‘Lifting the Lid’. I’d love to know which parts made you laugh out loud when you shouldn’t have – and where you were at the time! I hope you enjoy ‘Heads You Lose’ (the sequel) if you decide to take the plunge.
      Best wishes and many thanks again,


  2. I just finished the book CREMAINS and it was such a funny, entertaining book. I should have started it and gone to sleep but I started laughing and couldn’t put it down so I’m still awake. Thank goodness I’m retired!! It’s hard to find books this good so I’m thrilled to start my journey through more of your books. You are such a wonderful writer; thank goodness I’ve found you!!
