Since Tony McFadden left Canada two decades ago he and his wife and two children have lived in the US Virgin Islands, various American cities (LA, Ft. Lauderdale, Atlanta, Fairfax), Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan and now, finally (and for good), Australia.
All of those places and people have provided a wealth of characters and settings for his books, all filled with thrills, suspense and adventure. More about him can be found at http://www.TonyMcFadden.net

Have a read of this. It's free and it won't take long. It gives an idea of Eamonn Shute (pronounced "aim 'n shoot" - which other characters give him a ribbing about!) and his life style. I love the character and the environment Tony (the author) has set up for this guy. A 6'6'', poor man's Irish James Bond, that has won the lottery, and moved permanently to Sunny Florida, leaving his Irish compatriots to whine about the cold without him.
So this guy probably has the life most of us want. He lives in luxury, in a perfect location, with a lovely Florida-born girl friend, and to keep himself interested in life, he pokes his nose into Police matters here and there - and outdoes them at their own game. This story was great fun and is probably great intro to the author's humour and style.
