He cleverly describes the characters, scenes and action with narrative set to enhance the readers’ vocabulary while whizzing along in the adventure.

About The Author
Mike Blyth, a retired Royal Marine Commandos Major, is presently the chief operating officer of a risk management company supporting government and commercial projects in high-risk environments. He has worked or lived in over forty-three countries, most of them rather dodgy in nature. He also published a book on security management and commanded more than 650 security personnel in Iraq.
Mike is married to Kristen, who is retired from the US Navy and frequently points out she has a much higher IQ than her husband. They have five children together. Mike enjoys writing the Inspector Rumblepants books every time his wife gives birth in order to escape changing diapers (which happens rather frequently).
