Everyone told him he needed a holiday. His life had fallen apart around him. His marriage had failed, and he had been dishonourably discharged from the military. He needed to recharge his batteries and make a new start and a break on the Costa Blanca was the opportunity to re-set his life. Two weeks of relaxing, enjoying the sun, and having a few drinks was just what the doctor ordered. It started so well. How was he to know that this was the prelude to the vacation from hell? He soon becomes enmeshed in murder and intrigue, and meets a beautiful young woman.
Set in the idyllic town of Calpe in Southern Spain, this thriller introduces Gordon Bennet, ex-military, ex-mercenary, in a tale that is a rocket ride of thrills and tension. The brooding Ifach, the giant 332 metre rock that stands as a towering sentinel, forms the backdrop for this high action romp. Where rival crime forces battle for control, only a fool would stand in their way, and Gordon is such a man.

This new novel Dead Men Don’t Snore by David M Cameron, is set in Spain, at the heart of the Costa Blanca, within the region of Valencia.
Here lies the ancient fishing village of Calpe which has a central role in this story, and the imposing rock of Ifach, which dominates Calpe. Rising precipitously above the sea, it plays a significant role in the unfolding story of our flawed but plucky hero. Our unlikely hero, Gordon Bennet, embarks unwittingly on a two week ‘vacation from hell’ which, entertainingly, and through many, often violent twists and turns, culminates in an exciting denouement. The story is gripping, the characters are interesting, the hero is flawed but determined and the setting is believable. enthusiastically recommend this novel and look forward to the next book in what I hope will be a recurring series.
