Home page:

John was born in Hampshire and retired from the Special Investigation Branch of the Royal Military Police in 1988, after a full and successful career which took him to many exciting locations including, West Berlin and West Germany during the Cold War, Northern Ireland during the ‘Troubles`, Cyprus and Belize. Although he has investigated the complete range of criminal offences from theft to Murder, he specialized in surveillance. On his retirement from government service, he not only established a sailing school in Tenerife, but set up a successful Private Investigation Agency.
His novel, ‘A Wolf in Berlin: Operation Red Comet’, is a historical-political thriller, which is set in West Berlin during the cold war. John uses his experience as an Investigator to tell a story which accurately portrays the working practices of Military Police at a time when Investigators pitted their wits against the criminal fraternity without the aid of DNA testing, mobile phones and computers.
