couldn’t have ourselves
We met up in the beautiful city of Porto for research on our next Harry Preece book – a sequel to The Phoenix Code.
Our new novel is now on sale!
An ancient Nazi secret… a race against time.
The legend is true… Before his suicide, Adolf Hitler left one final message for his followers – a secret code hidden in each of his most treasured artworks. It reveals an evil so horrifying, its discovery will force humanity to succumb to the Nazis once again – seventy-five years after the Führer’s death.
Art historians Harry Preece and Elena Sivori are dragged into a terrifying chase – from Buenos Aires to London, Madrid to Venice – desperate to stay one step ahead of a ruthless arms dealer, a daring thief, and a billionaire with a deadly secret.
Can Harry and Elena track down the lost paintings and discover the shocking truth about Hitler’s legacy? The only way they can save the world… is by cracking the Phoenix Code.
Available in eBook and paperback… NOW!
Harry Preece is a world-weary academic whose greatest pleasure is to explore the shelves of the world’s oldest record shop – Spillers Records in Cardiff.
Harry would never have believed, though, that one visit to the 125-year-old store would set into motion a terrifying adventure – a race against Russian oligarchs, North Korean agents, and a mysterious billionaire… all desperate to crack The Phoenix Code.

The SECOND COLLECTION of stories in our series Sherlock Holmes: The Centurion Papers is out now in audiobook on Amazon, Audible, and iTunes.
Stephen Doyle brings THREE stories to life:
The Missing Parrot
When Lady McMillan’s beloved pet parrot, Rodney, goes missing along with the scullery maid, she enlists the help of Holmes and Watson to track down the kidnapper and bring Rodney home. The mystery, however, is far murkier than it first appears, and the stakes are ever so much greater than the safe return of a stolen bird…
The Montmartre Murders
Presumed dead, Sherlock Holmes is on the run from Moriarty’s acolytes… Lying low in Paris, an incognito Holmes finds himself in a city at the cusp of a cultural revolution. When a series of gruesome crucifixions sweeps the arts district of Montmartre, only one man can solve a mystery that will shake the famous City of Lights to its foundations. Even undercover, you can’t keep a great detective down…
The Curse of the Baskervilles
At last, the sequel to The Hound of the Baskervilles!… Watson is presented with a note from a mysterious stranger. Upon it is written one word: BASKERVILLE… Almost a decade after Holmes and Watson faced down the legendary beast on the moors, the duo is pulled into a chilling new mystery when tragedy plagues that cursed family once again. Ghostly voices from the dead, victims savaged on the hills, and a giant hound that is very real indeed… Can Sherlock Holmes defeat his most villainous foe yet?
Stephen Doyle brilliantly captures the atmosphere, the terror, and the wit that we wish to convey in these new cases… that have been kept hidden for a hundred years!
