|Trained as a lethal killer, his luck ran out in the blast of an IED while on patrol in Helmand Province. With his shattered body healed but his Army career at an end, he returned to his home to start life afresh in the rural countryside of south west England.|
Little did he realise as he settled back into familiar surroundings and renewed old acquaintances that within a matter of weeks events would decree that his deadly skills would be called upon again.
Far from the searing heat of Afghanistan, this time he faced the enemy in his homeland on the Somerset Levels, through the quiet lanes of Cornwall and across the rolling hills of Exmoor.
Returning after a five year term in prison for a crime he didn't commit, to a town that sanctioned his conviction and to the cattle baron that murdered his father, Farin West was blinded by thoughts of revenge. He had become known as a dangerous man while he did his time at Yuma and even the thieves and killers of that hell hole avoided him.
Now he was going back to seek out those who had ruined his life and destroyed the world he had known. His only edge was that he no longer cared for money, comfort or even a decent life. His only thoughts were to make them pay and pay dearly.
But they knew he was coming and events would take him in many directions before he could finally confront those who had sent him away. His first rule was to trust no one, but he would learn that in order to stay alive long enough to see his plan through, he must come to rely on some old friends.
Out gunned, out numbered and out manoeuvred, he would play a deadly game of cat and mouse, right up to the final confrontation with the Kersey outfit.
|The Third Testicle|
The Third Testicle is the story of a journey. A journey through the past. A journey through Europe. A journey which touches on drugs, madness, the surreal, on criminal gangs, Police undercover work, busking and international espionage. But above all it is a spiritual journey of unique idiosyncrasy. Or maybe not. It is the story of one Gerald Brantano, a swashbuckling Englishman who sets off on a journey searching for something which will ultimately change his life forever. The end of the world has already been forecast to occur in 2012 by an ancient Andean prophecy and somehow Brantano finds himself in the very place which will supposedly offer shelter from the impending Armageddon.

|Julian’s Journeys is a collection of 34 travel stories. These stories are part memoir, part travelogue, and part revelation about the effect travel has on me. |
I write stories about the baggage man at Tehran airport who helped me through customs in double-quick time and all for one dollar. I tell the story of the nun at the bus stop in Catania, Sicily, who was incredibly knowledgeable about the local delicacy, mortadella. I describe how I became slowly inebriated in Bulgaria, when one of the locals offered me the opportunity to sample his homemade slivovitz in his garden – all the while we wrote down football results on a piece of paper. I report a conversation I had with a super-smooth carpet-seller in Istanbul, who was always encouraging me to visit his shop.
