A dangerous time and place in which to find yourself.
Especially if - like Femi - you're a young chimpanzee on a quest.

Unfortunately, Femi couldn't have chosen a worse time for
his quest. Because the Big-Walkers are at war.

Daniel was just looking to lay low and escape the hell his life had become. What Daniel found was Lost Angels.
Here, criminal Houses vied for the public vote. Downtrodden and depressed citizens... More > faced lethal, on-the-spot punishment for the smallest indiscretion. Feuding Houses, more interested in fighting each other than actually helping the people who voted for them, made collateral damage of their constituents on a daily basis.
And yet no-one ever, ever left the town.
Deciding, inexplicably, to 'save' the town's inhabitants from the violent political bodies, Daniel goes on a twenty-year odyssey, rising up through the ranks of the criminal Houses in an attempt to rid the town of its destructive rulers once and for all.
But Daniel doesn't count on the fact that power is much more seductive to those who wish to do good. He must realise why the town is called 'Lost Angels'. Or else be reminded exactly where the road paved with good intentions leads...< Less

'The Assassin's Wedding' tells the tale of the week leading up to Michael Shepard's wedding. He's nervous? You bet. Why? Well, mainly due to the small thing of secretly being an assassin. It's not... More > the kind of thing you tell your prospective wife. Or her snobbish family. But it is the kind of thing that makes you wonder if, just maybe, you made a slight mistake in falling in love and proposing.
Nevertheless, Michael - a nice guy (y'know, apart from the killing for money thing) - does indeed love his intended and plans on making it all work. Somehow.
Things don't get any easier when a simple job (there to take Mike's mind off the impending wedding) turns sour due to (among other things);
- a missing person
- another assassin
- ghosts from his past
- a slightly drunk private eye and (worst of all)
- wedding shopping...
This pacy, darkly humourous thriller scrambles its way back and forth across the globe and leaves our hero wondering; can assassins really have a happily ever after?< Less
