He also has a completely standalone thriller out named THE BOADROOM.
But, rather than expecting you to instantly buy a book, it’s only fair that you can read a sample of Jack's work.
So, if you join the Jack Gatland Readers Group, you'll receive a free DI Walsh ebook – LIQUIDATE THE PROFITS – a full story and a prequel to LETTER FROM THE DEAD!
