12 million pounds heist - will he get the money out of England?

Eammon Murphy from Belfast has lived in Cheshire, England ever since the end of the troubles left him without a job. Life had been good to him when he worked with splinter groups of the IRA. He raised money with a protection racket. Money for the Army, and some for himself. When he got to England he mixed with the criminals of Manchester, and earned a dishonest living.

Now he is sixty, with a wife suffering from Alzeimers, and needs one big job to keep him in retirement. His old school friend from Belfast, now an Inspector in the Cheshire Constabulary tells him that consignments of platinum are being shipped out of Manchester Airport.

Murphy sets out to steal twelve million quid of the bullion. Murphy bungles the heist, escaping but unable to get the goods out of England. He is being chased by John McBride, artist and ex SAS Regiment captain. Another old school friend comes to Murphy’s aid, but is planning to take the bulk of the money in return.

The excitement builds, a sea trip in a storm, a ferry journey ending with men overboard, and another old friend planning murder.

Cruise The Storm By David Chilcott

Cruise The Storm

A cruise ship full of passengers hijacked

The Helena, an upmarket cruise ship sets sail for the Med. It is already in the Solent before the owners realise there are several members of a far right group aboard, and they might be aiming to hijack the ship, but they are sure that due to stringent security there can be no weapons aboard. They discuss matters with MI5, and one of their operatives agrees to board the ship in Spain, to monitor the situation, and to prevent weapons being taken on board.

John McBride is aboard, encouraged by his agent to act as art tutor. When the Captain learns that McBride used to be in the SAS, he thinks he might be useful if things get out of hand.

But it is not just a hijack that takes place, but also a rebellion by the passengers loathe to have their holiday ruined. A hurricane, rare, but not unknown in the Mediterranean engulfs the ship, which is holed by a collision with a container washed off a watching container ship. When the Captain thinks life couldn’t get worse on this, his last voyage before retirement, it does. With the last hijacker roaming the ship in disguise, will he kill the captain?
