Smart Moves Gar Arial Arial BalticFor international corporate troubleshooter Jake Foreman, losing his job, house and wife all in one day is the kind of problem he can’t solve. And when an impulsive move lands him in even deeper water – the kind that could lose him his life – he decides it’s time to make some smart decisions.

The trouble is, knowing the right moves and making them is a whole different game. And Jake, who has been happily rubbing along in a job he always suspected was just a shade away from being illegal, but never questioned, finds it too easy to go with the flow.

Now he’s got to start learning otherwise – and fast. If he doesn’t, he could end up dead. Dark humour, criminal activities, beautiful women and a flurry of sex: a potent mix for a man only a shade away from trouble. What more could anyone want?

SMART MOVES is available from Amazon and Amazon UK.


The difference between right and wrong: you can still end up dead.
