Meet Eva Destruction, the only thing quicker than her mouth is her talent for getting into trouble. It's true she's always had an eye for a bad boy but when she falls for billionaire super-villain Harry Lancing, it seems that even Eva may have bitten off more than she can chew.
Eva hurtles headlong into terrorist attacks, assassinations, car chases and the occasional close encounter with a dashing spy who seems determined to charm Eva into bed as he is to thwart Lancing's plans to bring down every government on Earth.
As the odds begin to stack up in Lancing's favour the fate of the world lies in Eva's hands. Luckily for the world, Eva Destruction isn't the type of girl to let a super-villain ex-boyfriend with a massive ego, unlimited resources and his own secret island get the better of her.
"High octane, wise-cracking, ass-kicking entertainment from the first to the last page..."
"As if Stephanie Plum had James Bond's (Australian) love child...I loved it. It's fun, it's funny, it's clever. I want a movie of this now. Brilliant."
USA Today Best selling author Dave is a novelist, a screenwriter and a really excellent parallel parker.
He lives in Melbourne with his two crazy daughters.
A prolific writer, he spent a lot of time trying to break into the publishing world*.
He’s also an award winning filmmaker. A title that sounds much more impressive than it really is. He won a best comedy screenplay and cinematography award for one of the short films he wrote and directed, though at the time he didn’t really know what cinematography was. A completed screenplay is currently doing the rounds.
Dave’s overflowing bookshelves include many works by Douglas Adams, P.G. Wodehouse, Dashiel Hammet, Raymond Chandler, Janet Evanovich, Ian Flemming, Zadie Smith and John le Carré.
*Well, not actually breaking in. Stealing blueprints, buying a van, assembling a crack team of heist experts, overriding security systems while suspended from the ceiling just seemed like a lot of hard work. He’s decided to publish with a book instead instead.
To find out more, you can stalk him at all these semi-reputable places:
Eva is an MI6 agent who wakes to find armed men in her apartment hell-bent on revenge. The only problem is, she has no idea what they're talking about. Someone has stolen the last sixth months’ worth of her memories and the fate of the world rides on getting them back.
On the eve of the G8 summit, Eva is thrown headlong into globe-trotting assassinations and gun battles on the trail of the mysterious plan known only as Halcyon. Together with a besotted CIA agent and a misogynistic MI6 operative, Eva races across the world to retrace her steps in the hopes of finding answers.
With the clock ticking, Eva must track down those behind her memory loss, as well as battle a foe she can't remember.
The globetrotting takes her from London, to exotic Macau casinos, to Hong Kong hydrofoils, to French castles, to English mansions, to a car chase between an ice-cream van containing a nuclear weapon and black SUVs through the streets of London.
With betrayal at every turn, Eva discovers she can't trust anyone, including her own organisation. Eva must face down nuclear annihilation alone and she hasn't even had her coffee yet.
