SEVEN DAY FOOL
*** PRE-ORDER NOW!! ***
Modernist Beat Poet JASON DISLEY’s thrilling homage to pulp-fiction noir thrillers of the ’40’s and ’50’s set in the Mod clubs of mid-sixties Manchester.
Being a Private Eye is sometimes a thankless and mundane job. The year is 1965 and Jake Brody Private Eye, is in desperate need of clients.
When, an attractive woman enters his office and hires him, little does he realise that his week ahead is going to be one that has to be lived to be believed. Seven Day Fool takes Jake on a thrilling chase through the shadowy underworld of Manchester nightlife. From its hip cafe bars, such as The Cona, to the shady nightclubs where the Northern Mods liked to frequent, like The Twisted Wheel. He is tasked with finding a missing Polish girl, but has just one week to do so, and no longer. The clock is ticking, ever faster, as fresh dangers come into play.
The consequences of not finding her could, in turn, create a scandal for a ruling class still reeling from the Profumo affair. Gangsters, kidnapping, and murder are just a few of the hurdles he has to face. Will he manage to do what he needs to – or, will he end up the fool for just trying to do the right thing?

*** OUT NOW!! ***
A modern day odyssey by acclaimed author PETE McKENNA
When Bob Bishop, a Football Scout in Belfast, saw a young lad play he knew he had discovered something special and immediately sent a telegram to the Manchester United manager Matt Busby. The telegram simply read; “I think I’ve found you a genius”
Hundreds of thousands of fans, from across the globe bore testament to the discovery of the genius that is George Best. The brightness of his rising star was matched only by the glare of the media spotlight and so those very same fans that witnessed his ascendancy also saw his very public decline on a scale like no footballing superstar has before or since. His sad self-penned epitaph, which perhaps fittingly, made universal front-page news; read simply DO NOT DIE LIKE ME!
No one who’d ever witnessed that sheer God-given talent could ever forget his greatness and hundreds of thousands attended his funeral, including the author, to pay their heartfelt respects. Maradona Good, Pele Better, GEORGE BEST is the story of a man who saw the ‘damage done’ twice over and his journey to simply say ‘thank-you’ to the best player to ever grace a football pitch.
