Canal Boat - - News -

When mil­i­tary vet­eran Ed­die Sto­vas gets a call for help from old girl­friend Yvonne, he might have hes­i­tated, but when he hears that his old army mate Mike has been at­tacked, he re­alises that his nar­row­boat, Bellerephon, could make an ideal hide­away. A gang of drug-deal­ing Afghanistan ter­ror­ists have left Mike in a bad way and killed an­other man. Over the next eight days, keep­ing one step ahead of the en­emy, Ed­die, Yvonne, and their newly re­cruited squad of helpers dodge around Eng­land’s south­ern canals and rivers in tra­di­tional canal boats and also a less-tra­di­tional RIB and he­li­copter. Lasers and ma­chine guns are pro­cured and put to good use. Amer­i­can and Bri­tish author­i­ties are both brought in to help foil the bad guys, but it is clear our hero is fol­low­ing his own agenda. “Why did you go to all this trou­ble, Ed­die?” he is asked. That ques­tion may be an­swered as the au­thor de­vel­ops this se­ries of e-book thrillers.
