Jersey’s Secret Assassin – an Action, Adventure & Suspense Novel by Eddie Kirkup

A story that starts in Jersey in the Channel Islands and is concluded in Cyprus, another island, but this time in the Mediterranean, a little nearer the maelstrom that is the Middle East. One connection between them is that two brothers each live on one of the islands. The story begins when Richard, living in Jersey, seems to have been the victim of a tragic domestic accident that results in his death. Frank, his brother, knows differently, not only had he been speaking to him shortly before he died but he also knew there was no way his brother would have died under the circumstances described. He may have been two thousand miles away but he knew his brother had been murdered. What he didn’t know: who was the secret assassin that killed him?

Secret Assassin

The Secret AssassinFrank does what only a brother must do, he travels to Jersey to find out for himself the truth of what has happened to his kid brother. One thing for sure is that whoever did this is going to be sorry. Richard may have been a reporter and used to getting his nose where it wasn’t wanted, but Frank was a different character entirely, he had no fear of physical conflict and was very capable of taking care of himself.  Something he was able to demonstrate very soon after his arrival in Jersey; much more effectively than the so called hard-cases of the criminal fraternity expected.

It doesn’t take long for Frank to make a few friends and a lot of enemies. He also realises that there are sinister undertones around his brother’ death and a connection with another, seemingly unrelated, death. He also discovers police corruption at the highest level, criminal activities and a secret plan to disrupt world peace. Problem is, who can he trust, who are the good guys and who are the assassins, criminals and murderers.

The Secret AssassinUnfortunately he finds out who some of the good guys are when they meet their demise trying to help him out. He manages to get out of Jersey before the same can be done to him and takes his story to Interpol. He gets short shrift from the CIA when he offers to help them find the killers. They make it clear that they place him as a rank amateur and advise him in the strongest terms that he should return to Cyprus and keep a low profile, while they and Interpol  deal with what are becoming serious criminal and political threats.

Trouble is Frank doesn’t know the meaning of ‘low profile’, especially when there are still assassins and criminals running around, one of which secretly murdered his brother.
