Author has written 3 stories for James Bond, and Sherlock Holmes.

'The Ghost of a Chance' and 'Love No-one You Cannot Destroy' are contemporary Bond-movie-style yarns written, hopefully, in an acceptably Fleming-esque manner (I don't pretend to be clever enough to match him). For those who've read the books, it's similar to Christopher Wood's 'The Spy Who Loved Me' novelisation.

'The Twenty-Nine Minute Adventure' is a period Holmes story told in the tightest of spaces which hopefully brings a new slant on the fictional detective.

I also have some original (mainly King horror/'Tales of the Unexpected') stuff over on FictionPress.

If you like either - or even if you don't! - please consider giving to one of the following charities:-

CancerResearch /AlexanderTurnbull

BiPolarUK /AlexanderTurnbull2

We're smart enough to beat both horrible illnesses.

I think I am obliged to say I don't own any copyrights of any of the stock characters nor the 007 'formula'. Hopefully this is obvious, but just in case, there it is. So don't go selling this for huge wodges of cash or making it into a film. Well, not without telling me first anyway.

Please leave comments good or bad under 'Reviews'. Thanks for your time,

Sandy Turnbull.

Sherlock Holmes and the Twenty-Nine Minute Adventure reviews
18th October 1897: cornered on the 8:23 to Paddington, Holmes has but 29 minutes to avert disaster. A mysterious adversary, a singular puzzle and potentially an even bigger revelation. The game is most definitely afoot!

What links a series of horrific terror attacks to a German assassin and a 'celebrity' Russian Billionaire? From Goodwood to the Tyrol and onto the Web for a gut-wrenching climax James Bond must force the odds in his favour. Contemporary Bond novel.
