First Response - The New Standalone Novel

Amazon has just discounted the hardback price of my new standalone novel First Response to just £8.  That makes it almost a couple of quid cheaper than the eBook. You can buy the hardback HERE



Hodder and Stoughton have set the pricing for the eBook at £9.99 which I actually think is pricey, especially now that the hardback is just £8.

Here's the blurb for the new book, which I think is one of my best:

London is under siege. 
Nine men in suicide vests primed to explode hold hostages in nine different locations around the city, and are ready to die for their cause.
Their mission: to force the government to release jihadist prisoners from Belmarsh Prison. Their deadline: 6 p.m. Today. 
But the bombers are cleanskins, terrorists with no obvious link to any group, and who do not appear on any anti-terror watch list. What has brought them together on this one day to act in this way? 
Mo Kamran is the Superintendent in charge of the Special Crime and Operations branch of the Met. As the disaster unfolds and the SAS, armed police, and other emergency services rush to the scenes, he is tasked with preventing the biggest terrorist outrage the capital has ever known.
But nothing is what it seems. And only Kamran has the big picture. Will anyone believe him?

The wonderful people at Lovereading made First Response their March book of the month and  gave it an awesome review HERE!

It may just be me, but this book does not seem to have had the same exposure as past books. It's not in-store at Asda or Tesco's nor does my, all be it small, WH Smiths stock it.

My library has only ordered 3 copies in comparison they ordered 31 copies of the latest Chris Ryan book.

I read another blog post that your going to self publish it in the USA as your publisher turned down the rights.

What's different with the publication of this book ?

Hi Stephen, this latest masterpiece kept me intrigued from start to finish. I wait in anticipation to see if future work from you will merge some of the characters from other books.

This is one of the best books I have read in a long time. As a Spider Shephard fan I was not sure what to expect. The plot in this book is fantastic and anyone would be hard pushed to work out the real picture before the end.
Highly recommend this, was a totally fantastic read, well done Stephen, a real gem.
