The chase is on…
I was born and brought up in Glasgow, Scotland. I studied biochemistry, and I’ve worked in several Scottish universities where I did research on enzymes, and taught biochemistry. After thirty years of teaching and research I retired my academic pen, and took of a mightier fiction pen.
I live in central Scotland with my wife and we enjoy reading, writing, and walking in the hills.
The Lambeth Group books follow the secret government investigations of agent Zoe Tampsin. A strong female protagonist with courage, determination, and guile. She is assisted by specialist consultant, Gavin Shawlens.
This was a pacy, engaging thriller with a science-y edge. As the Lambeth Group go undercover at a university to find out who is producing potentially lethal performance enhancing drugs they open a whole can of worms. As enemies and supposed allies start to descend, it’s a race against time.
Even though I haven’t read the preceding book it was easy to get into the plot and connect with the characters. Zoe and Gavin are an engaging pair of protagonists and the plot wasn’t too complicated, especially as I’m no scientist!
