PI Harry Kenmare loves gorgeous women, fine wine, and Irish whiskey. And he loves to see justice done. He’s old school: results matter, methods don’t, and political correctness can go to hell, along with the corrupt Establishment.

The seven stories collected here have Harry doing what he does best and telling it to you himself, as he goes hard, very hard, at work and at play.

In these PI cases, Harry gets down and dirty across Sydney society, from the supposedly respectable to the openly seedy. He mixes it up with an obscenely colourful cast of characters: bikies, druggies, sensational strippers, corrupt cops, triads, and even a paedophilic politician, to name a few. Harry takes on the city, dishing out his loving, his hatred, and a truckload of brutal karma.

Dark, debauched, and disturbing, Harry Kenmare’s world is a high-octane thrill ride for hard-core crime fiction addicts. But you’ll need to buckle up and bite down. Only readers with cast-iron fortitude need apply!

Harry’s World

PI Harry Kenmare is a prehistoric private detective in an unfriendly and infinitely unjust modern world.

His life revolves around drinking, fine food, smoking, and fast women, preferably the ones he has to pay for, in cash. So what better CV for trawling through Sydney’s corrupt social and political elites, who cravenly chase power and wealth behind veneers of respectability.

In this collection of seedy episodes, Harry is a dinosaur on a mission of justice, looking to shatter the hypocritical façades. And the rules don’t always apply.

Join Harry in the jungle of 21st century Port Jackson, where little is as it seems and none of it is pretty. Except, of course, those gorgeous by the hour girls.

When a trail of magical murders follow a stolen statue, Lieutenant Danny Pak and FBI Agent Buddy Redhorn have to get it back, before its dire curse falls on the city.

New York Police Lieutenant Danny Pak has a problem. When one of his officers calls him out to an unusual crime scene, Danny realizes that it’s terrifyingly similar to something the department thought was dead and buried. Now he has to find a madman before the story hits the papers and the city explodes into chaos.

Across town, Agent William “Buddy” Redhorn of the FBI has two problems. He’s been assigned a potentially career-ending case with magical ties, and his sorceress boss is out of town. The case involves a stolen statue that belongs to the government of Brunei, but the more he chases the thieves, the more bodies begin to drop. Bodies affected by a strange, unknown magic.

Resolving to work together, Danny and Redhorn have to catch a cold-blooded killer, recover a stolen artifact, all while keeping everything out of the press. If they don’t, it will be more than their careers that will die when the curse of the Jade Phoenix descends on New York.

When Captain Kyle Mercer of the Army’s elite Delta Force disappeared from his post in Afghanistan, a video released by his Taliban captors made international headlines.

Then a second video sent to Mercer’s Army commanders leaves no doubt: the trained assassin and keeper of classified Army intelligence has willfully disappeared.

When Mercer is spotted a year later in Caracas, Venezuela, by an old Army buddy, top military brass task Scott Brodie and Maggie Taylor of the Criminal Investigation Division to fly to Venezuela and bring Mercer back to America—preferably alive. Brodie knows this is a difficult mission, made more difficult by his new partner’s inexperience, by their undeniable chemistry, and by Brodie’s suspicion that Maggie Taylor is reporting to the CIA.
