Hi All!

Today I am on the Blog Tour for Fatal Deceit by Tim Bacon and I am here with an extract for you all.

Before I share that though, here’s some information on the book.

Summary: Born into an international gang, Shelley has a reputation for being ruthless.

A martial arts expert and trained, notorious assassin. All she wants is to meet someone, have a family and lead a normal life which seems on track when she met and fell in love with Jack.

Then her brother is nearly killed in a bar brawl, and gang members are murdered. One last hit proves difficult with a young baby and hiding the truth from her new partner is near impossible.

At least her new family are safe. Or are they?

Saturday night, mid-June. Jack had finished work at midday for the premium rates overtime and had showered, watched Final Score and was ready to meet up with Pete. They met in a bar in the centre of Bristol and were preparing for a long night of drinking. It was 7 pm and the bars in the city centre were quiet with a few seasoned day-time drinkers, half-way through their last pints of cloudy cider before staggering home.

Jack had been working in the engineering workshop since he left school and had served his apprenticeship there. He was a regular at the gym but was not a body builder, he just liked to keep his fitness level up. He was no good at football or rugby, although he enjoyed watching sport. He recently split with a girl his own age, 22, following a turbulent and manipulative relationship. He was not bitter or saddened by the split, more relieved it was over.

Pete was a carpenter and was athletically built but had bad acne when he was a teenager, and the scars were prominent. They had been friends for a couple of years and went out every other week when both were available. Pete had never had a long-term relationship but had a good sense of humour and was never short of female attention. Jack was now single, so he was a regular at the pubs and clubs in town. He only went out on weekends and always had the company of work mates or other friends. He was enjoying single life and the benefits of freedom, although back living with his Mum had brought its limitations. Pete had his own
apartment, and it was a short taxi ride from the town centre, as was Jack’s Mum’s house.

So, where shall we go then?’ asked Jack and downed the final third of his lager in one take.

‘King Street? There is always plenty to look at down there, my mate Craig pulled in there last night. He’s a scaffolder I work with occasionally.’

They made their way through the old part of the town, along the river where a floating restaurant was preparing for a busy night and turned right into King Street. They entered the first pub and ordered a couple of pints and some vodka chasers. They lent with their elbows resting on the bar and commented on women of all shapes and sizes passing by. Then faced the bar, counted to three and both downed their chasers and slammed the glasses down almost simultaneously. They turned to each other, laughed, and carried on sipping their pints and admiring the view of a group of well-dressed attractive ladies who had just entered the bar loudly.

About the Author

I was born in 1969 in Bristol and raised in a suburban council estate called Patchway. I followed my dad into carpentry and then as a construction manager. I then moved into health and safety management and now run a consultancy with various construction clients throughout the UK.

I have always kept reasonably fit and martial arts have been a big part of my life since my mid- twenties. I hold a second-degree black belt in karate, and I still live by the principles although I am unable to train in the art any longer. I am a family man, married with three grown up children, still living in a suburb of Bristol, although still travel the UK with my work. I also play gigs as a rock singer occasionally, sometimes with a band and sometimes solo. 

Writing Fatal Deceit allowed me to be creative with characters and use my imagination with the storyline, all coming together at the end, which was for me, a fulfilling creative journey.
