Threat Level One

Threat Level One 
Crime Thriller
September, 2015
Published by Paul Anthony Associates

When Master Sergeant Jack Dooley uncovers a startling secret in the desert wastes of Iraq he unwittingly triggers an alarm that resonates throughout the western world. It doesn’t take long before Boyd and his elite Special Crime Unit find themselves handling the investigation. But who is the man from Tikrit the police and intelligence community are desperately searching for? Is he really an Islamic assassin with orders to take out the leaders of the western world? As the Cumbrian counter-terrorist detective chases down the enquiry he enlists the aid of multiple intelligence agencies only to uncover a right wing plot to take over the government. Boyd soon realises that the man from Tikrit is an unknown quantity– and he certainly isn’t the only threat that needs to be thwarted.
A race against time follows with Boyd and his colleagues arguing with the Home Secretary and officialdom when multiple threats from a variety of lethal sources are uncovered. Short of resources, short on patience, and short of time, Boyd casts an eye on the national threat level as it slowly rises from the peace and tranquillity of threat level five. Then, as the nation’s threat level hits ‘critical’, it becomes blatantly obvious that Boyd and his team must do all they can to protect the United Kingdom’s Royal Family. It’s only when Boyd meets aristocracy and enlists the help of a Knight of the Realm that he realises the country really is at Threat Level One and there’s a very highly placed traitor in the midst of it all.
Threat Level One – Based on the true story of the national threat level, the men and women who make it, and those who try to break it.

Another excellent read by Paul Anthony. A gripping, multifaceted tale of espionage and covert operations which come together in a fast pace finale. It was good to see how Boyd and his team have developed and good to meet new, strong characters. I literally couldn't put it down!

Chiari Warriors for Medical Research

Chiari Warriors
An anthology from Paul Anthony Associates
Published September 2015

This blog is a story in itself - the story of fundraising for medical research into the condition known as 'Chiari Malformation' - a rare condition in the human body that requires neurosurgery - brain and cranial surgery following an MRI scan. This blog is part of a wider information package for fundraisers - as well as book readers and charity supporters - as we do our best to 'conquer chiari.'

Please read on and see how our fundraising is taking shape.

This is an anthology of short stories by 18 authors from across the globe - the UK, the USA, Canada, and Europe - The tales they tell are both non fiction and fiction. Many are based on real life experiences. Others are based on vision and a wondrous source of imagination that these very special authors bring to their readers. Some of the stories they tell will make you cry, others will make you laugh. But some of their writing will actually terrify you when you realise that some of the accounts they recall are actually true stories from real events in their lives. Indeed, there's something for everyone here: tales of love and war, of honour and disobedience, of hate and humour, of desire and desperation. They have produced a roller coaster of emotion on their journey to complete this anthology. It's a book to savour and enjoy, page by page. Above all, this anthology contains the true story of a young boy who suffers from Chiari Malformation - a condition for which there is currently no known cure. The work itemises the condition and the problems associated with this horrible human condition. Written by the self-styled Chiari Warriors, the book seeks to raise funds for health practitioners and research analysts. Accordingly, proceeds from the sale of this work will be donated to the Birmingham Children's Hospital Research Unit (a registered charity in the UK) in order to fund dedicated research into this life-threatening condition. The results of this research are shared across the globe between UK institutions, the Chiari Institute in New York, and elsewhere. If you do nothing else today, download this one to savour whilst doing something worthwhile for the children of the future.
