Writing as C.M. Ewan, his latest books are nerve-shredding thrillers about ordinary situations gone wrong. THE HOUSE HUNT is a claustrophobic and heart-pounding thriller about a young couple who are selling their recently renovated dream house and what happens when the woman, Lucy, agrees to show a potential buyer around their home who refuses to leave. THE INTERVIEW tells the story of a seemingly normal job interview that turns out to be something very different and unexpected. A WINDOW BREAKS asks the question: what would you do if you woke up at 2 a.m. to hear somebody in your home?
