Ken Scott's latest novel

Ken Scott's latest novel

A Million Would Be Nice, the latest novel from Ken Scott, crime and thriller writer from Newcastle, England, is now available. The fast-moving tale tells of the exploits of Donavan Smith, a successful young man who wanted more. But his strange character, perhaps the result of his mother’s religious bigotry and abuse during his childhood, requires him not just to use other people, but to exploit them, ruthlessly. In A Million Would Be Nice, Ken Scott creates the perfect anti-hero, a man you want to hate, but a character whose exploits you want to uncover.

Good looks, top job in the city, Ferrari, second and third homes in Paris and Cannes, not to mention a spacious penthouse overlooking the Thames. Yes, it seemed Donavan Smith had it all. And the girls. ready and willing. And if, every now and again, they weren't so willing, Donavan had his own way of persuading them.

Jenny McArthur was different though. She knew something terrible had occurred during a ten-hour period of her life that was a total blank. But, as it all gradually came back to her, she relived the horrors encountered at the hands of Donavan Smith. And she wanted to get even. Donavan would have to deal with her.

Vicky Mackenzie harboured a secret, a secret that she hadn't disclosed to anyone. So why was she spilling the beans to a total stranger from London, a stranger who she'd only met that night? She told him all about her past life, the cold-blooded murder of her husband, the phoney bank raid and how the money was still out there somewhere. Donavan listened and wondered how he could get his hands on the money; wondered if it was possible to plan a premature retirement.

It would get nasty, that was for sure. But why not? Donavan Smith had done nasty before, just ask Jenny McArthur. Donavan Smith and Vicky Mackenzie: two soul mates, two secrets; it was a match made in hell.
Author Ken Scott was raised in the Scottish Borders. He moved to that wonderful cosmopolitan metropolis of Newcastle upon Tyne at six years of age to attend the ‘University of Life.’

In 2006 he moved to Spain to research his third and fourth novels which he is writing simultaneously. But he still manages to return to Newcastle several times a year. He prides himself on having seen every Newcastle United game live, since moving to Spain, either at St James’s Park, or on UK, Spanish, Scandinavian, African or Arab television.

He lives south of Valencia with his wife Hayley, children Emily and Callum and their boxer dog ‘Sir Bobby.’

A Million would be Nice is set in Newcastle, London, Paris, Cannes and Spain, all places that Ken Scott knows well. The plot revolves around a bank robbery, and draws on Ken’s own experience as a long time employee of a major British bank.

Scotty draws on the raw passion, honesty and genuine characters of the city he loves in every chapter he writes. He has received great acclaim for his first two novels, Jack of Hearts and the sequel A Million Would Be Nice and boasts five star reviews on both Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.com.

Full details of the book are available on Ken Scott’s website at http://www.ken-scott.co.uk.
