MUD by Gerald Neal: It’s 1992 and the height of the so called UK ‘Yuppie Recession’. One-time well off people are now desperate – but no one more so than Tim as he wades out into the thick black Thames mud to search a drowned corpse for drinking money. But unknown to him, this act will drag him down deeper than he ever thought possible… into the murky world of London crime at its most evil. He finds some money in the dead man’s wallet but to his astonishment also the phone number of his ex-lover. Available in paperback on Amazon.uk.

Bond may have a license to kill, but Maxim Gunn doesn’t need one. Why would he, and how would he get one when he’s left the service. Anyway, he has the P.M.’s blessing, and those back room men with no names who run Whitehall, whose mantra may well be, “No matter what, we have got Maxim Gunn, and they have not.” Gunn is the weapon of last resort. When they’ve run out of options, they call him back. No debates, no hand wringing, just get it done. And he does. Find Nicholas Boving’s story about him on Amazon.
