The Rupert Brett Series
No Deal’s Done ’til It’s Done
In the 1980’s, London is the land of property deals that make or break careers. When Rupert Brett begins working as a surveyor, he’s ambitious but naive. He quickly discovers he’s entered a world where knowledge is the true currency.
Developer Paul Simions is at the heart of many unscrupulous real estate deals. With a group of hired thugs, he’s been manipulating markets and bribing officials. By the time Rupert realises what Paul’s doing, it’s too late – the developer frames him as the prime suspect in a murder investigation.
To clear his name, Rupert risks everything as a double agent. But can Rupert outwit the criminal mastermind or face the consequences if he doesn’t?
A Deal Too Far
Autumn, 1990. The Gulf War is just beginning. The IRA are suffering. And the British government is on red alert; rumours of a second invasion of the Falklands swirl; the UN has refused Argentina’s claim to oil rights on the islands and now the fate of the land and its black gold are at stake.
Back in London, the international property market is imploding as fund managers tussle with a world in deep recession. Property surveyor, Rupert Brett is fighting to stay on top but past deals come back to haunt him when the authorities require his specific skills once more. Tasked to open an international office in Buenos Aries by the British government, and partnered with an SAS operative named Chris Adams, Brett is thrust into a new deadly game. Time is running out and the sailing season in the South Atlantic is arriving.
A Deal with the Devil
Rupert Brett is back and it is 1995, with the property markets raging and the Sub-Prime madness just beginning.
The Irish Sea, a shipment of drugs is intercepted, the IRA lose the cocaine and their most feared enforcer, Tir Brennan, is captured.
Deauville, a wealthy French aristocrat has a terrible accident with far reaching consequences.
Bogota, the head of the old drug cartels is dead and Ballesteros is now running new routes to the US and beyond.
The events are all linked and somehow drugs are being smuggled with impunity across the globe. With a source originating in Palm Beach, US, Rupert Brett is again asked to go undercover, with SAS Sergeant Chris Adams as protection. They must find out how the drugs are being smuggled into the corporate world of property, polo and high finance. The answers run deeper than either could imagine and a dangerous former nemesis returns, throwing their lives into turmoil.
