Lost In Plain Sight:

What if Doctor Strange joined MI5?

Urban fantasy with “lashings of humour” .

“A magic adventure for grown ups” – Amazon 5 stars

Join Sam Franklin on – and under – the mean streets of Brighton…

This fur-raising adventure will show you dark corners of our world, where magic works and the monsters often wear nicely tailored suits.


I freaking loved this! Yes you heard right, if I could sum my review up in 4 simple words that would be exactly what I would write!

Refreshingly different, clever and hugely entertaining.

A magic adventure for grown ups.
