The seventh novel:

The Crete Connection

Kindle & paperback versions out NOW.

In rural Wiltshire, England, a six month-old baby disappears from a stroller while its mother is inside a store for just two minutes.


A young Englishman begins a summer of adventure on the Greek island of Crete.


By pure chance, the two events, although separated by over twenty years, are irrevocably linked by the taverna where the young Englishman ends up helping out.


The result is life-changing, both for the mother of the child that disappeared, and for the young Englishman. A chance visit to the same taverna by these two separate individuals brings on a crisis in both of their lives, but will it end well for either?

The action in 'The Crete Connection' is split evenly between a small village on the south coast of Crete, about 25 kilometres east of the town of Ierapetra, and the county of Wiltshire, England.

Amazon UK reviews:


"I really liked this book and particularly so as it was set in Crete where I live! I've also visited the village near Ierapetra where the Greek taverna is supposed to be. It was an exciting, fastpaced novel that I read until very late at night and was disappointed when I'd finished it.....and want a sequel please!!!"


"Fantastic storytelling as always by John. This was a fast paced back and forward tale that just kept springing surprises. Just when you think you've got it, you know what's happening next, it changes, and you think: darn, he's got me again. Would absolutely love a sequel to this."
