A Leopard in Liverpool

A LEOPARD IN LIVERPOOL is a killer-thriller replete with cliff-hangers and more twists and turns than bush fighters foray into the savannah in pursuit of the dusky devils.

Penned by the award-winning author Michael Walsh, the crime-busting bonanza keeps the reader awake as the white knuckle ride read spins out.

The storyline begins when, during a vacation in his home city, Fraser McLeod, the Liverpool-born soldier of fortune turned arms dealer, chances upon his ex-fiancé Charlotte Austin.

Having 16-years earlier forsaken his teenage sweetheart in favour of world travel, Charlotte, now a successful business executive is initially reluctant to renew the acquaintance.

When eventually, she does accept Fraser McLeod’s offer to call him, Charlotte has an ulterior motive. Sally, their daughter, born out of wedlock and of whom McLeod is unaware, has recently been lured into the city’s underworld.

With their daughter’s trail gone cold and the police disinterested in yet another teenage runaway, Charlotte realises that her ex-boyfriend, Sally’s errant father is the only sleuth who has the ability and the resolve to rescue their stray daughter.

The snaring of Sally is an epic fail on the part of the sex traffickers. Fraser McLeod, after being drawn into the 1960s Congo crisis and Simba Rebellion has since morphed into a lethal humanoid. Further years spent fighting in the anti-insurgency wars in Rhodesia’s savannah and bush has turned the dog-of-war into a cunning and resourceful predator.

Camouflaged by the inner-city’s itinerant jetsam his daughter’s trail has gone cold. The action heats up when the merciless MacLeod fades into the maritime city’s social sewers. The legendary predator will not return without his daughter Sally. McLeod’s crosshairs are equally focused on the city’s villains whose aim is to profit from their innocent daughter’s physical assets in the sex trade.

Those, whose trade is debt and death, flesh and illegal substances know how to discourage the inquisitive. However, the city’s racketeers are no match for a prowling marauder for whom death is no more to be feared than is birth.

The soldier-of-fortune turned arms dealer has a single lead and an unquenchable thirst for a vengeful nemesis. This page-turning novel draws heavily on the real-life experiences of the respected author.

Readers maybe reminded of the Brian Garfield novel, Death Wish. The movie of the same name tells the story of Paul Kersey, a Manhattan architect, who became famous, or infamous, for pedestrian vigilantism.

Parallels will also be drawn on the 1978 blockbuster thriller Daniel Carney’s The Wild Geese. When the movie was made of the same name it became an iconic movie that allows us a peek into the comradely but often sinister shadowy ways and means of the dogs of war mercenaries.

Mike, it saddens me the big companies don’t promote your work, but take pride in what you do. Your talent is substantial. I just put your book in the hands of a home school mom who said it was interesting, and she agreed to borrow it later. ~ Mark
