Read full description of the books Accidental Justice:Fraser and Harris are lonely obsessive men.
Fraser is a major in the British Army, he’s on sick leave and he’s obsessed about getting his knee to work again. He refuses to believe that he’s not going back. And anyway what else could he do?
Harris has lost his wife and his parents, he’s thrown the towel in. Harris is a thoroughly decent man but underneath all that decency he’s angry. He’s angry with his dead alcoholic father, he’s angry with his dead mother for loving his father and he’s angry with the world because nobody cares about anyone else. Harris gets drawn into doing something about that. He’s on a mission to make things better and bad men are dying.
Fraser fails his medical, the British Army can manage without him. In the back of a chauffeur driven limo Fraser is offered the chance to lead a unit investigating cross border crime. His attention to detail, his meticulous organisation and the fact that he trusts no-one will all combine to make Fraser’s team successful. When one of Fraser’s targets dies Fraser has to send his lieutenant, the beautiful and deadly Kathy Bennett out into the world to verify the cause of death.
Harris is a quick learner and he’s become very good at this tailor-made killing stuff but he doesn’t realise that Bennett’s out there trying to convince herself that he exists. Life with all its mess and complications could come crashing in to threaten the carefully constructed worlds of Fraser and Harris.
Read information about the authorCHRIS PAGE JONES - BIO
I was brought up in a small town in Mid-Wales where everyone knew everyone else. Then it was the sort of town where once you had received confirmation of your A Levels a small armed posse took you to the edge of town and sent you away. I knew that once equipped with a degree, in something or other, there was no way back! The number of graduate jobs was limited, and they were all taken!
From my earliest years I was an avid reader. On wet days in the holidays (not that rare in Mid-Wales) I used to borrow books from the local library in the morning and, if the weather didn’t lift, I would return in the late afternoon to change them. My early writing consisted of not much more than scrawling my full name and address - ending Llandrindod Wells, Radnorshire, Wales, The United Kingdom, The Earth, The Solar System, The Universe! … As a teenager I was a keen tennis player and moved on to writing reports on my local tennis club’s fixtures for the local regional papers. This sounds more impressive than it was as there were always far more sheep and cattle than people in Brecon & Radnor.
After being ridden out of town I gained a degree in Physics. My working life has not been as varied as I would have liked. I spent a while after university as a transplant surgeon operating on fruit machines before going into education. Then you were allowed to educate kids without someone dictating to you the rigid requirements of an excellent or outstanding lesson. (This was before the word satisfactory came to mean unsatisfactory). I very much enjoyed teaching Nuffield Physics – where the kids discovered their physics through conducting their own experiments.
I’ve spent my life watching people interact. I’ve heard and seen how the strong manipulate the weak and how the weak sometimes get their own back. I bring this and my love of stories and life to my writing.
I now live in South-West France where for the last five years I have written almost every morning. ACCIDENTAL JUSTICE is not the first novel I have written but it is the first one I’ve dared let anyone see. I spent almost two years rewriting, editing and re-editing this story which is about a once decent man driven to do extraordinary things because no-one else would. On his journey he rebuilds his mind, his body and his life. We watch him learn to live again but as the story unfolds we don’t know if he will be able to escape from the consequences of what he has done.
Readers have described Accidental Justice as a mystery or a thriller and asked if there is a sequel. There will be a sequel but not yet!
I have just finished the second draft of a shorter novel for adults based on an experience I had at Airport Security at John Lennon Airport earlier this year – THE TIC-TAC TERRORIST, a black comedy. In one week the life of the main character falls apart in a hilarious way, but the week ends with a totally unexpected twist.
POTS, CLOCKS and CLUES, the first book in the Diamond Detective Agency Series, is almost ready for publication. This is a story for eight to twelve year-olds and everyone else who can believe that a detective agency can be staffed by a human, a cat and a dog. I hope you will be able to read this from August 2013.
I also have the first draft of a murder mystery set in Mid-Wales and Cognac country in which a grand-daughter attempts to find out why her extraordinary grandmother is the subject of a contract killing. I hope to have this published by Christmas 2013 which will allow me to start writing Accidental Justice part II in 2014.
