    Tim Ferguson has written all sorts over the years – his latest ‘The Cheeky Monkey’ a comedy writing manual and his very funny and honest memoirs of life with MS ‘Carry A Big Stick’ are outstanding!

    Lets be blunt about it, reading action fiction books is an acquired taste, however for those who have that love, then they will enjoy the acrid scent of cordite wafting through their imaginations during one of the climatic gun battles while reading any one of the four books Chris Allen has thus far written.
