    I m a fiction writer trying to break away from typecasting For a while I was focusing on disasters, books like Flood and Volcano London threatened by a storm surge, an eruption caused tsunami devastating the coast of Maine I could have gone on with the theme publishers always want of the same and Flood had made it into a movie bit I couldn t face it So I m back to straight thrillers with MUTE, out now on kindle It s about a little guy taking on the big ones Nothing earth shattering, just a simple story of a fellow who doesn t give up when threatened A bit about me I m a Brit who s spent most of his life elsewhere I was raised in North Africa and Kuwait and I ve lived in lots of countries since USA, France, Ireland, West Indies and the UK Hard to say which was the most fun I married a girl who likes travelling and she s usually planning where to go next Any suggestions welcome We love sailing and our son is a yachtsman so a bit of water would be good If any of you decide to stray on to my kindle entry, you ll see I ve put Imperial 109 out there too It s a novel I wrote in 1978 about a flying boat service between South Africa and America It sold a million copies.

  • Its a surprisingly nifty thriller What it suffers from is that after the first half of the book, it becomes something in the model of an Alex Hailey read ensemble cast of characters lots of time worn conventions and thin ruses thrown in Grand Hotel on an airplane, etc.But hey that s perfectly forgivable in certain cases like this one How many novels can you name which are not only thrillers but historical period pieces from the 1930s involving airplanes The author demonstrates commendable writin [...]


  • This is the only book by Richard Doyle I ve read, and own And while I have got rid of a lot of books through the years, this one is still here, even if the book a paperback edition is falling to pieces Someone wrote that this well written thriller starts in a crisp and unusual way, but later turns into a Arthur Hailey like story, but I don t mind at all.Surprising is that it hasn t been turned into a movie, as it would easily be turned into one, in this day and age of computer graphics The story [...]


  • This was the first book by Richard Doyle that I read, and it was the book that made me a fan and put me on the search for any and all books by Mr Doyle His straightforward style and clarity of descriptions of the characters and settings and plot draws a reader into the storymetimes until the book is totally read In Imperial 109, the reader is transported into the past and carried along on the adventure unfolding on its pages which depict adventure after adventure with such a sense of reality tha [...]


  • Written as of a sweeping epic Too many details on too many secondary characters with individual stories converging on a final flight The plot became so far fetched that it was unable to maintain the suspense element the author was apparently attempting to create The finale was a useless token action sequence that thank goodness only lasted for less than 10 pages.
