Here are a few of the rave reviews:


Prism Magazine: ‘Brilliant’


East & West Magazine: ‘A riproaring tale of internet skulduggery’.

Peter Pilot:
 ‘History, politics, travel, intrigue, downright crookery and romance! What more can you ask for?’

Juan Miguel Fiol Guiscafré: (Professor of Philology at the University of the Balearic Islands):  ‘A real page-turner…..I have been touched by the author’s familiarity with Mallorcan geography, history and customs.’

John Andrew:  ‘This story keeps you guessing…… Picturesque and exotic settings and picaresque and glamorous characters add much colour.’

Astrid Kinlow:
‘I found the premise of the story, based on the origins of navigation in Mallorca, absolutely fascinating, and a unique idea.’


‘Navegator’ is an action novel with a difference.  At its centre is a twenty-first century Mallorcan family. The story follows a brilliant scientist, Vasco Valseca, who is furious when a hacker steals from his bank account.  With the help of intuition inherited from his forebear, a legendary Mallorcan navigator, he creates a unique computer program to pinpoint the culprit’s location.  Sinister forces learn of his discovery and will stop at nothing to get hold of his priceless program for sale to a government or terrorist group.  And so the evil schemes begin.  The fast moving plot takes the reader to many other countries too, in a tangle of love, loyalty and misunderstanding - all leading up to a nail-biting conclusion.
