About J M S Macfarlane

Thank you for your interest in my books. I hope you find them, not only entertaining but also informative or even educational. I hope you discover something new and interesting in them. I write from experience and what I observe around me. Everything I describe is fiction but if you visit London or south-east England, many of the places I refer to are there to explore. I write about people or things which interact with 'the law’. Law enforcement can be quite different from what students imagine or what everyone sees on television or at the cinema. The reality is far less glamorous and often absurd. It can test what you're made of, how good you think you are, how much you can endure, what you can achieve of true worth. My style of fiction is new and different - about a world which is mostly hidden from public view but which exists around us. Criminals, courts, police, lawyers, judges, directors and companies can be difficult, stressful and at times, wrenching. But they are part of the world which you and I inhabit, each day, as we go about our normal business – confronting disappointments, betrayals, deceit, distrust, disloyalty, jealousy, spite and greed, just as the Roman emperor, Marcus Aurelius did almost two thousand years ago.

Review by: Dai Alanye on Dec. 18, 2016 :
Unbelievable! Not only due to the twists of law but because I'd never have expected to be intrigued by insurance fraud.

This is mainly about an inside attempt to take down a prominent insurance underwriting firm whose primary business is reinsurance in the maritime field—ships, cargoes, oil platforms… The reader gets quite an education on the subject, and a few thrills from danger of arrest, courtroom surprises and threats to life. After all, when hundreds of millions are involved it isn't surprising if the game gets rough.

Supposedly based on an actual occurrence, the book is well written if a bit wordy due to a slight tendency toward repetition. Five stars are well-earned none the less.
