We’re delighted to share Laura’s thoughts about Fatal Fix by Graham Morse on the Random Things tour.
Fatal Fix is a gripping murder mystery I found I couldn’t put down. Football isn’t my favourite sport or pastime however I loved this.
Tony Barker was found hanged in his home and police ruled as suicide. However Matt Riley an investigative journalist and friend of Tony soon realised a scandal had been committed.
Discovering Tony was investigating match fixes, Matt starts a dangerous quest to search for the truth. Travelling to Singapore to research gambling syndicates and Las Vegas to interview a player with gambling problems, he soon finds himself in danger.
The further Matt investigates other bodies are found as suicide deaths and Matt realises he can’t go to the police for support.
An exciting murder mystery with plenty of action, at times too much for the protagonist.
Graham was born in Swindon, England, and educated at Abingdon School. He began his career selling advertising for the Sunday Times. He then worked in sales and marketing with Unilever before leaving to set up his own advertising and promotions agency.
He married his wife Janet in 1963 and they have four children. Graham has always been a keen sportsman, playing football, rugby, tennis, squash, golf, and, sailing with his family.
He retired from his business interests to pursue the passion he shared with Janet for sailing. They crossed the Atlantic in 2002, and after four years exploring the Caribbean sailed across South Pacific from Panama to New Zealand. The experience of visiting remote islands and cultures inspired Graham to write his first book, The Islands Time Forgot, which was published in 2010.
His biography of his father-in-law, Sir Walter Winterbottom, The Father of Modern English Football, was published in 2013, and was short listed for British Sports Book of the Year in 2014.
Fatal Fix, Graham’s first work of fiction, takes readers into the criminal underbelly of greed and corruption in the world of international football.
Graham and Janet have travelled extensively for business and pleasure and currently live in the Caribbean.
