This review is from: Carillion: 10 Days (Kindle Edition)
An exciting very readable story. I especially enjoyed the contrast between the tensions within the Police Force and the desperate tensions within the mob.
The character of Carillion is well crafted and you go up and down with him in his search for the truth. His personal life is cleverly woven into the story He catches your sympathy and you begin to want success for him – but will he get it? On top of all his problems there is a Royal visit planned for the city. The last thing Carillion and his men need at this time.
The vibrant City of Glasgow is a great backdrop to this fast moving story. Plenty of loose ends to keep you guessing from the very first scene to the exciting final solution.cover-3

My work background is in operational meteorology and in my career I have been involved in forecasting for everything from bananas to jumbo jets.I joined the Met Office 1974 as an observer at Glasgow Airport. After training as a forecaster, I worked as an Operational aviation forecaster at various defence sites and airports. In 1982, I moved to Glasgow Weather Centre as a forecaster and STV broadcaster till 1988. He then took up a post as Senior Forecaster London Weather Centre, then Senior Forecaster ITV where I qualified as a trainer in presentation techniques for the ITV Association. After being diagnosed with MS, he moved into management and became Head of London Weather Centre in 1997 followed by a period of front-line management for Southern England and Europe covering London and Cardiff Weather Centres and the Met Offices on defence stations from Akrotiri in Cyprus to St Mawgan in Cornwall. He took up the post of Met Office Chief Advisor for Scotland & Northern Ireland in March 2008 and moved to Edinburgh. I retired in September 2014. My one claim to fame is once performed a comedy sketch on TV with Manuel (Andrew Sachs) from Fawlty Towers in support of Comic Relief.
