  • Black Mountain Affair on Feb. 28, 2013

    A great read, completely entertaining from start to finish. The perfect mix of humor,suspense and intrigue all glued together by the author with the reluctant hero, an ex-detective who is a magnet for trouble and extraordinarily hot damsels that need saving as he does from them more often than not. A great read as is the entire Ben Hood series. Nev.

    Ben inherits a property on the south coast NSW from an Aunt he has hardly spoken to in many year as he believed she disapproved of him and his police and VIP protection profile but things are not what they seem and it doesn't take long for things to turn nasty as an autopsy proves she was murdered and the neighbors are not all they seem. Which leaves Ben fighting for his life.
