Nightmares crowded my sleep and I woke in a sweat, some twelve hours later, gasping for air and thought that Julie’s death was just a nightmare, a figment of my imagination. But I knew it wasn’t.

I needed air and crawled to the door leading out onto the patio that overlooked the beach and the Sea of Cortez. It felt similar to Gozo, but it was subtly different; the smell of dry sage tinged the slight breeze and somewhere close by, lingering smoke from a mesquite barbecue blew lazily across the beach. Bile rose in my mouth and I dry retched onto the sand as the image of Julie, bloodied and broken in the helicopter, blasted into my mind.

The moment passed and I sat at the water’s edge as small wavelets ran up the beach and sank into the sand.

Julie’s death killed something in me. Something I thought I had recovered from after my last tour in Afghanistan. She gave my life a soul that had been destroyed, and now with her death, my soul was as dark as it had ever been.

De Costas would pay for her death.

All that was left in me was the instinct for survival and revenge; the only emotion, pure hatred for the man that had caused all this. It was this that had kept me alive when I should have been dead. It was this that created the desire to fight back to full health.


An hour later I hobbled slowly back to the bedroom, lay down and fell into a dreamless sleep.

  1. Really appreciate you featuring my book, writing a series that keeps reader's on the edge of their seats while making each book unique and different and not written to the same formula is a challenge but a really exciting and uplifting one.

    And thanks for readers of this blog for stopping by - if you have any questions I'd be only too happy to answer them. As I am in Australia there is a large time difference between me and readers in the USA, UK or Europe, so bear with me before I can check back in again. Cheers and happy reading!
