Steele Novels

The latest Steele novel Earth plc is available for Kindle from Amazon and in paperback from Completelynovel at


A man is found dead in the massive Kielder Forest in Northumberland and the initial reports suggest suicide. A member of Patrick A Steele’s team feels that is not the whole story and an investigation ensues that leads the team into conflict with some of the most powerful people in the UK. Steele can mete out his own brand of justice initially but when the power companies and the government become involved Steele has to tread carefully.

This time Patrick has been drawn into a national issue that affects us all - Global warming. Steele comes up against the might of corporate finance with the backing of national government who are keen to maintain the status quo on the subject when in fact there is evidence to support a different view.
The team struggle to maintain their anonymity under intense pressure and the chances of success seem to be increasingly slim.
Has Patrick bitten off more than he can chew?
Is there collateral damage to other aspects of his life?
What is next for Steele and his team?

I have already received comments from one of the proof readers along the lines of where is the last chapter? The answer of course is that she'll need to read the next novel!!!!

Launching a book is rather like sending a rocket into space but receiving positive comments from the outset is like enriching your rocket fuel.

The book is not available from all major book vendors and may not be until after Christmas.

God Bless
