Peter Sinclair is a reasonably intelligent, fairly sociable, retired business executive, a family man attempting to carry on leading a full life, travelling and seeking safe adventures as befits his... More > years. Family holidays should be pleasant, fun-filled times. Unfortunately, although he does not seek it, trouble seems to be attracted to Peter – not the what-a-pity sort of trouble you might expect of someone of his age and experience but serious trouble which might lead to his ultimate downfall. Crisis in Croatia sees him falling foul of a paramilitary group determined to achieve independence within Croatia; in Jewels of the Canaries he gets drawn into an attempt to smuggle stolen diamonds into Spain; in The Mysterious Case of the Disappearing Sea Salt he gets lost in a maze of smugglers’ caves on the North Yorkshire coast; and, in Old Man of Hoy, he stumbles across an illicit Orkney whisky distillery with consequences far beyond his, and perhaps the reader’s, expectations.< Less

In a play he is promoted by an Oil Terminal management from dreamer to visionary. Oh how I bet we all wish we could work for them. As a child the author became convinced that every journey other than those on foot took one via Scotch Corner. This came about as the family frequently travelled to Scotland via Scotch Corner. Does this make the author gullible or stupid. Well perhaps it makes him both. If you are both then go right ahead and buy this wonderful piece of beautifully written literature.< Less
