It’s my pleasure to feature Brad Fleming on my blog today. Brad is the author of Role of Role of Dishonour, a fast paced thriller centered against the back drop of the violent and unsteady times of the “Troubles” in Ireland.
Brad’s novel is an intense look at the human condition, it spotlights the worst and the best of who we are and the great thing for all my blog readers is that for the next week the book is on sale for 99 cents.
To give you an idea of the flavor of the book I have picked two excerpts for you to enjoy:
“The reason you’re here is because each one of you has a certain talent, a particular expertise which, properly directed and, properly co-ordinated, could have a decisive effect on the situation existing in Ireland at the present time. I must also tell you that, while the prize is great, the risks to each one of us are considerable. I am speaking of physical risks gentlemen. Failure could result in imprisonment for all of us–or even death!”
He saw her then–sitting alone on a high stool at the left end of the bar counter. Quite simply, she was the most striking woman he’d seen in a long time. She appeared totally oblivious of his arrival and he found himself stopping involuntarily in order to study her more closely. Dexter was not normally so rude, or so easily impressed, but here was a woman well worthy of a second look.

What readers are saying about Role of Dishonour:
“I love a book that allows me to see the characters as well as feel their emotions.”
“Brad Fleming weaves a very real tale of dishonesty, betrayal, and enemies amongst friends, collateral damage, and the horrible stages that go along with a war within a war.”
“…an inside view to what was happening in Ireland of the height of their troubles. But it wasn’t that that grabbed me about this story. It was the undercurrent love affair, which had an almost Romeo and Juliet feel about it.”
“I was deeply emotionally involved with the characters.”
“I certainly recommend this story to anyone who enjoys a good thriller/mystery/suspense. Congratulations Mr. Fleming.”
Before becoming an author Brad Fleming was in journalism, broadcasting and public relations all of his working life. Born in the small fishing village of Kilkeel, Co Down, in the shadow of where the famous Mountains of Mourne sweep down to the sea, he worked in local newspapers before moving on to a national daily paper in Belfast. Later he broadcast on news and sport for the BBC. In his thirties he made a career switch to join the British Government Information Service, a job which took him to many corners of the world.
I enjoyed getting to know Brad and I would encourage you to give Role of Dishonour a try. You can’t go wrong at just 99 cents (the price may vary by countries). http://www.amazon.com/Role-of-Dishonour-ebook/dp/B009R8X2EC
