About David Gee

I've worked in telecomms and journalism in London and the Persian Gulf, but have now settled back onto my native Sussex South Downs to a life of writing and rustic pursuits (pub-lunches and dog-walking!) You can read Extracts from some of my yet-to-be-published novels at www.abctales.com, including my 'romantic thriller' LILLIAN AND THE ITALIANS - written to show my mother that there would be life after 50. Paradise Press in LOndon will publish THE BEXHILL MISSILE CRISIS in 2014 as a paperback and ebook.

Review by: Jack Scott on Oct. 21, 2012 :
Decadent western mores slap stifling medieval manners around the face and lose. Nothing could have prepared Cass and Eddy, the chief protagonists, for what was to come when they dumped their unwanted pasts at check-in and headed for the oasis. Follow them as they struggle to keep their heads above water (and on their shoulders). An (almost) bloodless coup upsets the expat apple cart of decadent days and raunchy nights, forcing the lotus eaters to hitch up their skirts and scramble for the border. A delicious, laugh-out-loud, randy romp through the myopic and bawdy world of Gulf expatriate life set against the chilling winds of change.

Review by: J Morg on Sep. 08, 2011 :
I got this book expecting a good story; but I was blown away with the speed and flow of this story.I laughed so hard so many times. I had to reread some parts to see if I had Imagined what I had just read. The author took me by my hand and lead me through so many turns and down so many different roads That I was totally engrossed by his wit and his writing skills.

Review by: Allen Makepeace on July 15, 2011 :
Absolutely outrageous. This story with its surfeit of sexual activity, its blatant carnality, would never be allowed in some countries. They would ban it, refusing to accept such excessive exploration of those personal areas which are regarded as private and sacred. Of course, it has not been banned here and thank God for that for I laughed long and loud. By the way, I’ve another story about air hostesses which David Gee might have fitted in but…..

Review by: Ros Glancey on June 19, 2011 :
I have not read any erotica before so I am not quite sure how to rate this aspect of Shaikhdown. It made my hair stand on end frequently. On the other hand, I laughed out loud more often and the plot was a real page turner. And the author's take on life in an arab country was an eye opener. Can it really be as chaotic and bizarre?
