Praise for STORM LOG-0505 : 

“I started it and just had to finish it almost in one. It starts off like a lot of cops and robbers stories but what you don’t realise is that it’s sucking you in. Then BANG, we get the first of several really clever twists and you’re hooked!”  Richard Dee – Author

“Disney wouldn’t make a film of this, but Tarantino might TheVoiceFM

“It’s a crime thriller with a twist, and I feel it really adds something extra that many in this genre lack. One of my favourite authors is Michael Connelly and I can see DC Deans becoming as popular as Harry Bosch S G LAWTON – Goodreads

Definitely the sort of book you cannot put down once you’ve started. I read it in 1 day!” Anne-Marie Johnson – Goodreads

“Mortain knows his stuff, keeps it interesting and it moves the story along at a brilliant pace, culminating in a stunning ending.” Ruth – Goodreads
