Storey: A Crime Novel
"I enjoy Lee Child, Robert Crais, Tess Gerritson. So I think Keith Dixon is up there with the greats." - Amazon Reviewer
"Quite the most readable writer working in the genre today." - Amazon Reviewer
When Paul Storey comes home from London he’s escaping an event that ruined his professional life. Now he’s slowly making contact with people again … but the people he winds up meeting are lowlifes, thieves and conmen.
Exactly the kind of people he was trying to escape.
Worse, one of them is a con-woman who, for some reason, he can’t get out of his mind and who has a habit of manipulating men ...
When he gets involved in a scam to sell smuggled antiquities from Syria he realises he can’t escape being a professional either—and one with a specialised skill that makes him even more desirable to his new colleagues.
Finding a purpose in life while keeping his head connected to his shoulders keeps him busy, until a Syrian who wants the return of one of the stolen antiquities shows up ... and he's not inclined to take prisoners.
