"Fears nothing, dares it all, outwits his adversaries and abides only by his own judgement."

"Almost psychotic nature ... seems to not give a shit. I'm not sure I like him at all, he’s selfish, rude and just a horrible man."

One thing's for certain - Simon Ellice is not The Good Guy. He's restless, ruthless, unpredictable and flawed. And yet, despite possessing little inner drive to do the right thing, he often finds himself being rescuer, defender and hero when people need it most.

The Simon Ellice Series


A gripping collection of literary adventure thrillers starring new British anti-hero Simon Ellice.


Known simply as Si to his friends and enemies, he is utterly capable, appetite-driven and unencumbered by morality. Si is a magnet for danger, whether in the mountains of Nuristan, the glamorous marinas of Jamaica or the lush tranquillity of rural Hampshire.


Crime, violence and death are never far away, but the Simon Ellice Series combines dark subject matter with wry humour, evocative prose and beautiful illustrations by artist Laura Molnar.
