Book bargain: free this week!

First Contract, the hard-hitting five-star quick thriller by Frank Westworth is available FREE on ebook for a few days only. This is your opportunity to meet JJ Stoner, who one reviewer nicknamed ‘the drinking man’s Jack Reacher’, in an early outing — one of the prequel short stories which are set roughly a decade ahead of the shattering events in the Killing Sisters trilogy of full-length noir novels.


Meet JJ Stoner. Musician. Motorcyclist. Murderer.

JJ Stoner was a soldier. He killed people for a living and made no bones about it. On a scorching day in the Iraqi desert, when British blood stained the sand, he over-stepped the mark. Men died in compromising circumstances; too many men for an easy explanation. Faced with a dishonourable discharge and accusations of murder, Stoner accepted an offer from a stranger who represented an intelligence agency. Suddenly, Stoner found himself half a world away and about to execute his first private contract…

‘Wildly witty and effortlessly accomplished. Stoner is a virtuoso with both his hands and with silenced firearms.’

‘This book surely packs a punch. The writing is bold and blunt, with horrific things said in a matter of fact way. It sends a shiver down your spine.’

‘Gritty story-telling at its best, with a plot that fires from the hip.’
