Hired by multimillionaire Jeremy Loudon, my task was simple – find his missing briefcase. Loudon claimed that his briefcase held ten thousand pounds, his winnings from a poker game. However, as the trail unravelled and led to Europe my suspicions deepened. What was in Loudon’s briefcase, beyond the money? Why was he being so evasive? Why did he insist on no police involvement?
My search for the missing briefcase took me to pimps, pornographers, radical feminists, gun runners and the Red Light District of Amsterdam.
Meanwhile, my investigation held a mirror to my own life. Loudon had everything – more money than he could spend, a successful business and a beautiful lover. My business was doing well and my marriage offered plenty of love and happiness. Yet, encounters with my Dutch colleagues raised the question – should I ask for more out of life?

The idea of setting the Sam Smith Mystery Series in my home city of Cardiff seemed a logical and natural one. Initially, I thought that most of my readers would come from Cardiff. However, two years later, I’ve discovered that they are in a minority because the Sam Smith Mystery Series is now being read in America, Australia, Canada, England, France, Germany, Italy, Ireland, the Netherlands, Scotland, Spain, Wales and the West Indies. Most of the stories will continue to be set in Cardiff, though following the example of book five, The Hermit of Hisarya, other books in the series will be set in Europe, with America and Australia as further possibilities.
