Twisted Wire
By Ray Stone

Series Description:

Enda Osin, correspondent for the Herald, loves political intrigue. After receiving a strange telephone message he thinks is for someone else, he is quickly embroiled in murder, industrial espionage, and a race against time to prevent the world’s first hyper-speed aircraft from crashing. The head of a Russian spy cell knows enough about Enda to manipulate him into unknowingly deliver secret plans into Moscow’s hands. Involved in an unbelievably complex and clever plot, Enda and his wife, beautiful Jessica Du Ross and right-hand man, ‘Fish,’ find themselves on the run from the police and a ruthless Russian agent, Voss, who has orders to kill. In desperation, Enda looks to MI6 for help but is hampered in his quest to expose a mole within the British secret service. MI5 and MI6 are playing politics with each other and with Moscow in a power game to use the mole for their own purposes. In a final double twist, an agent returns to Moscow, Enda sends a gift to the Americans and ‘Fish’ reveals a shocking secret.

Author Bio For Ray Stone:

Ray Stone is an accomplished author with a variety of published works to his name. Born just outside London in 1946, he grew up in post war Britain during a period of depression and ration books, bombed out housing and BBC radio. At school he won a writing competition at the age of eleven and later in his teens went on to widen his interest in the arts.

At the age of eighteen he began writing poetry and lyrics whilst studying at college. Two years later Ray worked in theatre as a technician with many orchestras’ and artists including the London Philharmonic, London Symphony, Mantovani, The original Doyle Carte Opera Company, Harlequin Ballet, Joan Baez, Jimmy Hendrix, Oscar Peterson and worked on local shows such as My Fair Lady, Camelot and West Side Story.

His poetry won him first place in 1998 in an international internet poetry competition with ‘Angry Silence.’ Moving to Colchester in the same year he wrote a full page article about the historical significance of the locale and was published with a by-line in the local press. Whilst writing his first novel Ray returned to writing lyrics and teamed up with a local composer. Together they produced and recorded five blues numbers.

A book of poetry and lyrics, Life over a cup of Tea, was published in 2011. Ray’s first novel, ‘THE TROJAN TOWERS,’ was published in 2005. A second political thriller, the first of the Enda Osin Mysteries, ‘ISIA’S SECRET,’ was published in September  2013.  The next in the series, ‘TWISTED WIRE,‘ was published in September 2014. In 2015 Ray published a follow on to The Trojan Towers, a chase thriller entitled  ‘CRATE OF LIES.’ All of his works are available in E version and print. He is currently working on a collection of Sci Fi stories.

Ray’s favourite authors are Charles Dickens, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Neville Shute, Alistair Maclean, C.S.Forrester, Len Deighton, Daniel Silva, Ernest Hemingway – and the list goes on.

Ray Stone has lived in and around London’s colourful EastEnd and the café sets of Westminster and Kensington. Rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous-and infamous he has acquired a unique insight into the lives of both criminal and upper classes that give his works a believable realism. Ray moved to the USA in 2003 and married. He has since retired from a successful landscape design business and now lives on Cyprus with his wife and fellow author, Mrellan Harahan.

For Irene Kimmel, CEO of Archetype Marketing, who designed my wonderful cover and published my work. Thanks too for her creation of my supurb web site.

For Jennifer Jansen who proofread my work and the invaluable advice and encouragement she shared.

For Kimber Coleman who read and helped fire the imagination and creative side of me when things got tough.

For all readers who enjoy this book. Thank you for your support.

Notes:

There is a Hyper Craft fact sheet at the end of the book. At the time of the original publishing, the facts given were up to date but since then the technology and the American and British programs in the field of hyper-speed have advanced. None-the-less, it is widely accepted that within 10 years we will see hyper-speed craft carrying military weapons and, hopefully medical aid to any part of the world within one hour.

These notes are the opinion of Ray Stone, author, and are not of anyone else, either official or otherwise.
