About the Author
Richard James's association with the worlds of Gerry Anderson began with playing Officer Orrin in Space Precinct. Since then, he has novelised the pilot episode of Space Precinct, Demeter City, and written four new adventures for the officers of Precinct 88, Space Precinct: Revisited. His memoir, Space Precinct Unmasked, details his time spent filming Gerry's last live action series. He has also adapted a lost sit-com script from Gerry Anderson and Ronnie Cass, The Fat of the Land, as a play for the stage. Aside from his Anderson credentials, Richard has written a Victorian detective series following the fortunes of Detective Inspector Bowman of the Yard.

    Another Terrific Tome from Richard

    I loved the first novel which was, as I understand it, an unused script adaption so I was very interested to read this being a completely new story from Richard James and I was not disappointed, a great novel, moved along at a brisk pace. A proper page turner. Hopefully more to come

    5 star........5

    Overall a very good read. It was easy to get into the story line and the characters were great. Read through it in 3 separate sessions which is good good for me. Normally I loose interest or get distracted and move on to something else. So for me it was FAB.

    An amazing sequel of the John Lovell-adventure

    Five Star Five's author Richard James sparks your imagination beyond the stars. I could easily see a whole tv series based on the amazing adventures of John Lovell, Clarence and the rest of the team. Hopefully this will be discovered soon by a wider audience!
