When the decapitated heads of an adult male and a young female are discovered in Glasgow, Detectives McBruce and Cartle are mystified. Until YouTube footage of both victims beheaded live on video are brought to their attention.
As they investigate, horrific consequences come to light, not only around the two murders in question, but of past events steeped in tragedy and cruelty, and how the abusive happenings over the years in a Childrens Home can lead to a fractured sense of morality.
Is all evil bad, may be a question for the fields of religion and psychology. One man though has answered that question himself, and regards the evil he does, not as cruel and murderous, but justice.

There is a CIA Agent, undercover in Scotland, A disturbed individual, who regards the Agent as an alien. A few Cybernats, A couple of CID police officers, and the novel takes place over a short period of time during the current political situation in Scotland, in the run up to the referendum for independence.
The book opens with Dave Stuart, an undercover CIA Agent in Scotland, sent to investigate Cybernats; who they are, and what bearing they may have regarding US interests, especially if Scotland becomes an independent country. Simon Parker is a disturbed young man who has started off by murdering a young female student, and as the novel progresses, his madness becomes more apparent. He sees the poet Tennyson in periods of stress, and interprets pieces of verse as instructions. He is also convinced Dave Stuart is an alien on earth. He commits more murders as the book progresses.
It is not all horror and political intrigue; there is some humour in there also!
Rab and Tam are two Jack the Lads who like fun, women, and drink, in whatever order they appear. Unfortunately, they are unready yet to face the challenges and responsibilities that confront them in adult life.
Each has their own major situation to contend with, and how they each cope and come to terms with these challenges dictates the kind of people they will eventually become…
Fractured In This Killing Scene takes us on a journey through a society where violence, death, bullying, and a lack of opportunities, leads to indifference and apathy. However dark life becomes though, there is always a spark of light and humour that ignites anew a faith in humanity and the world.
Stories of Joe, Snapshots of a Life. Follow Joe, at various episodes in his life, from childhood to teenager, to adult. Joe’s world isn’t perfect, and neither are the people around him, but as he grows he finds that compromise and acceptance can be both a good and a bad thing. Trouble at school, with his friends, and his parents, especially his father, all come alive in these snapshots of time. How Joe reacts, and overcomes, shapes the person that he comes to be.
These tales will both delight and enthral, and at times, perhaps even bring a tear to your eye, but there’s nothing more here than what many in life contend with, and deal with, and come out the other side, all the better for the experience.
