5fingers is a five-book series of fast-paced. supernatural adventure thrillers. They are written for adult and YA readers. They can be read in order or standalone, but the story does flow from one book to the next.

The plot spans the globe, taking place in the UK, Nepal, Eastern Europe, New York, Bolivia, Tanzania and China, with the action overflowing into the Mezzanine: a spectacular world with shape-shifters and spawners, where angels and demons war against each other.
Who are your favourite characters?
I love Caleb Noble, a mystical adventurer who used to be an international pilot. Lake Emerson is another favourite – he’s a fast, talking, wise-cracking teenage roller blader who’s training to be a journalist.
I also love the character of Rachel Race, who you meet in chapter one, and follow her through the series. She’s broken but strong, and very deep waters. I just know you'll love her. JRx
