THE
ORANGE MOON
AFFAIR
by  AFN Clarke


Thomas Gunn (ex-Special Forces) and his partner Julie are running for their lives. Who are they running from? And why? It all starts when Thomas decides to investigate the mysterious murder of his billionaire industrialist father. He’s shocked when his every move is blocked, especially by top levels of the UK government. But when his attempts to track down an elusive American business partner of his father’s turn lethal, he and Julie become moving targets, racing to outwit those who clearly want them dead. The danger rapidly escalates when Thomas is reluctantly compelled back into working for British Military Intelligence, exposing an international conspiracy that puts the freedom of the western world at grave risk.


But who are these ruthless conspirators that wield such unimaginable power? How are they connected to his father? And what dark secrets from the past will Thomas uncover in his relentless quest for the truth? This action-packed thriller spans the UK, USA and Europe and keeps you guessing to the very last page!


“The Orange Moon Affair” and “The Jonas Trust Deception”, the second in the series, have been hailed by the San Francisco Book Review as “fast-paced books you won't want to put down and you won't want them to finish." Available from Amazon (ebook and paperback).



Excerpt

“There’s only one way. Jump.”

“You come up here and do it.”

“Mother of Mary, just jump and stop whining.”

“Whose side are you on?”

“Listen to me. It’s deep where the water crashes into the pool. If you can jump clear then you’ll hit the pool just right. It’s either that or be caught, because no way can you get down that rock face.”

What a choice. Kill myself in the fall or be shot by the guys who were now fast on my trail. I looked back again. The buggy had reached the river’s edge and was less than two hundred metres away.

Still, I hesitated.

My mind was made up for me as a searchlight beam swept over me. The first round cracked past my ear as I launched myself into space.

The drop sent my guts up into my mouth as I tumbled in the air for an eternity, then hit the water with a stunning impact that knocked the breath out of me.

Somewhere a part of my brain was functioning as a rational logical machine. It took over and told my frozen, aching body that I had to swim away from the fall of water before I could surface. I was only under for about twenty seconds, but to me it seemed like an eternity before I felt someone grab my arms.

Everything went black as I passed out.


When I came to, I was lying on the bank wrapped in an emergency space blanket and Danny had his hand over my mouth. I could see a shaft of light playing on the surface of the pool from above and caught the intermittent sound of voices through the crash of the waterfall.

    1. My pleasure Sir!

      What! We have to wait! Awe man. lol

      I have a question for you...with 4 kidlets running around, how in heavens name did you have time do all the other stuff?

    2. I have to admit to being an "old guy", I'm nearly 66 ..... my 4 daughters are 25, 38, 42 and 45 .... can you believe it? I can't ... and I have 5 grandchildren ..... I mean, I remember my mother saying when she was 77, "I am 18 in my mind until I look in the mirror" and I am much the same these days. So I don't look in the mirror - ha! ha!

      But I've been writing since I was in my late twenties, both books and screenplays, often with an infant on my lap, in between feeds and diaper changing. I just got used to it and have always been good at not being too distracted by noise or anything else, just focusing really intently when I need to.

      Because of my background, my motto is a bit like Nike's - "just do it". Life is too short to not participate and get your hands dirty. I nearly lost my life in my twenties, so everyday now is a gift and I am not going to waste it :)

    3. Wow! Good for you!
      I wish I was able to tune noise out. Now, my husband is exceptionally good it and he's military too. I've asked time and again if you fella's are trained in 'tuning out'. He won't confirm or deny. lol

      Thanks for taking to time to answer questions. :-)
