Private investigator Dan Shaper, a drug addict and ex-gang enforcer, agrees to protect George Glass, an eccentric would-be messiah who claims that he is being targeted by a serial killer and that he is three thousand years old.

A crime novel with a twist, A Serpent Uncoiled is a wry, witty and utterly unique take on the classic private eye novel

Independent Publishing Group

A missing mobster. A bizarre spiritualist society. And three deaths, linked by a chilling forensic detail.

Working as an enforcer in London's criminal underworld brought Dan Shaper to the edge of a breakdown. Now he's a private investigator, kept perilously afloat by a growing cocktail of drugs. He needs to straighten-up and rebuild his life, but instead gets the attention of his old gangland masters and a job-offer from Mr George Glass. The elderly eccentric claims to be a New Age Messiah, but now needs a saviour of his own. He's been marked for murder.

Adrift amidst liars and thugs, Shaper must push his capsizing mind to its limits: stalked not only by a unique and terrifying killer, but by the ghosts of his own brutal past.
