A political and personal history

Who is JebGet it on Amazon!

Jeb Bush, the good son???he could sing the good song, if only he had the soul. Jeb the moderate, the sensible conservative, competent governor, business builder, self-deemed wonk, establishment darling. How has this mirage been rigged? What well-oiled machinations have orchestrated such delusions? Just drill a little deeper, uncap the well, expose the pent-up secrets and witness a ground-shaking blowout.

With hindsight, we can now see that even a modicum of due diligence into his brother???s DNA would have allowed a picture of what was destined to transpire during that presidency???for It was written. The answers lie in the family???s long-standing nefarious histories.

If Jeb disappears prematurely from our radar, vital truths may remain buried for yet another generation. Understand who Jeb is; then one can actually understand virtually every misstep America has taken since the 1950s, leading remorselessly to War, the birth of radicalism, polarization and the Stupidparty, all the way to 2016, with its abysmal collection of Stupidparty presidential candidates???none of whom have any interest in salvaging American democracy, or learning from such histories.

Jeb???s heart does not beat in tune with the needs of the American people; it beats to a different drum. To find its source, to understand its rhythm, we must venture into shadowy secret castles to reconnect with echoes of the past, in order to avoid an inglorious future.

A captivating historical novel!

Slave to FortuneGet it on Amazon!

Tom Cheke???s world is turned upside-down when he is kidnapped from his home by Barbary corsairs during an audacious night raid.

Sold into slavery in seventeenth-century Algiers, Tom carves out a new and promising life only to have it shattered once more when another twist of fate throws him into the hands of a Scottish knight of the Order of St John and into a turbulent world of ciphers, spies and assassinations.

Tom???s memoir is a remarkable account of how a young man comes of age, grasping life from the setbacks of fortune. It is a tale of friendship and reconciliation, of intrigue and deceit, in which trust is betrayed and deep-rooted beliefs and values are cast into doubt.

In Slave to Fortune, DJ Munro skilfully captures a bygone era of galleons and gunpowder. Corsairs and secret agents cross swords with crusading knights as the plot twists from the alleyways of Algiers, through the splendour of Malta and the canals of Venice, to maritime Portsmouth and the rustic charms of the Isle of Wight.

With echoes of Robert Louis Stevenson???s Kidnapped and J. Meade Falkner???s Moonfleet, Slave to Fortune is an uplifting, intelligent adventure that will spark curiosity and keep readers enthralled.

Suitable for readers of all ages from teens upwards, Slave to Fortune was the #1 bestseller for YA Historical Fiction on Amazon.co.uk on numerous dates throughout April and May 2017.

UnleashedFREE on Amazon!

John Chase has just arrived in Atlanta on a routine business trip. Before leaving the airport for his hotel, he notices that things are not normal. There is a large presence of Police and Federal Agents, on high alert and much more focused than is normal, even in the post 9/11 world.

When he wakes the next morning, John is shocked to learn that America has been savagely attacked with both nuclear and biochemical weapons. He is immediately thrown into an apocalyptic horror, rescuing a young woman from a group of men who are in a violent rage as a result of the release of a devastating neurotoxin.

His path is clear. Survive and fight his way across the continent to reunite with his wife as society disintegrates into savagery and millions of people become raging infected, roaming unchecked in their pursuit of the dwindling number of survivors. But survival will be the hardest task he has ever undertaken.

So begins Unleashed, the first installment of the thrilling V Plague series. The novels are set against the backdrop of a shattered, post apocalyptic America and tell the stories of a steadily growing cast of complex characters and their battles to survive. There are numerous sub-plots of greed, brutality, betrayal, treason, heartbreak and even a serial killer woven throughout the progression of the main storyline, chronicling the best and the worst of humanity as the world crumbles.

With a main character that is the Jack Reacher of the apocalypse, this is a series that has been hailed by readers and critics alike:

???A richly textured, post apocalyptic world has been created that draws you in, grabs you by the throat and shakes you like a rag doll. Wow! I???ve read so many series that peak by the second or third book, giving up on them when the author starts recycling events and story lines. But not here! I???ve read all the books and am impatiently waiting for the next, and it just keeps getting better! New characters, new sub-plots, new dangers, new victories, new settings. Each book is fresh, continuing the best story I???ve read in years. I hope the series never ends!???

???I wasn???t, and I???m still not a zombie fan, but this series blew me away! You want zombies, you???ve got the infected. But these are all too real and possible. No mumbo-jumbo ridiculous explanation (or lack thereof) for re-animated corpses walking around to be found here. Bravo, Mr. Patton! You scare the hell out of me and keep me flipping through the pages because I can???t put your books down.???
