Crime and Passion

Peatmore Press

Passion comes in many forms. Not only does it manifest itself when men and women become locked in the throws of love, it also shows through when they become absorbed in their own self interests whether it be acting, charities, railways or writing.


Crime has darker connotations. It can not be justified except by the criminals themselves even though it may arise during the throws of passion.


Here are twelve stories to illustrate both themes showing contrasting styles. The six Jack Lindsey tales illustrate their lighter element whereas the Luke Johnson stories are from the dark side.

About the author

Luke Johnson is a penname of Keith Jahans. He formed Peatmore Press as an on-line magazine in 1996 to publish and promote his writing. In 2008 he left his microbiology job at Defra’s Veterinary Laboratories Agency and established Peatmore Press as a Limited Company the following year.


His first novel, Cogrill's Mill, was released as an e-book in 2005 and as a paperback book in 2009. He decided to use the penname of Jack Lindsey for this novel to separate his fictional work from that he has published as a microbiologist. A second novel, Victim of Compromise, written under a second penname of Luke Johnson, was published on 15 February 2010. Crime and Passion, a collection of twelve contrasting short stories by Luke Johnson and Jack Lindsey, was published in ebook format in August 2011. This was followed by four audiobooks, the first of which was released at the end of 2011. A second Jack Lindsey novel, Gifford's Games, was launched in June 2012 in the month preceding the London Olympic games (it has nothing to do with the Olympics but everything to do with games). New Beginnings, a collection of short stories written under his own name, was published in August 2014.


In October 2013 he published his first non fiction book, American Road, as an ebook in kindle and epub formats describing a motorcycle journey in words and pictures he undertook in the Southwest of the USA during 1982. Then following successful sales on Amazon he followed this in April 2015 with the publication of Bike Travelling Man in Kindle format describing his experiences with two motorcycles.


He lives in Woking, England and spends a lot of his time writing and travelling. Further information about him can be found by visiting his website at http://peatmore.com.
