Delighted to share the news of the latest release by Daniel Kemp…a thriller What Comes Before (Heirs And Descendants Book 3)
About the book
Lord Harry Paterson, Sheriff of the County of Yorkshire, is coerced back to work for the British Security Services after witnessing the macabre death of a beautiful, young woman at a grouse shoot hosted by his friend and ex-fellow army officer, Viscount Winston Bottomly.
Unbeknownst to Harry, the woman – the Viscount’s fiancée – had stolen a top-secret file from the French consulate in London, containing information about an innovative encryption method called post quantum signal cryptography. With the power to endanger every communication method in use between allied nations, the document – in the wrong hands – could completely change the balance of power between East and West.
To avoid a technological threat to world safety, Harry is instructed to find the file and eliminate all those who have seen its contents. But does he still have what it takes to get the job done?

One of the reviews for Percy Crow (Book 2 Heirs and Descendants)
When asked to investigate the who, what, where, and why of Percy Crow’s demise, Lord Harry Paterson, Mr. Kemp’s main character, gets involved knowing that something is rotten in Denmark. In this case, it’s United Kingdom’s high society.
There is enough criminality to go around, internationally and locally. The enormity of Percy Crow’s involvement goes beyond his depravity and that of why he does what he does to payback the center of his festered anger.
The story has its twists and turns that lead back to people close to Lord Harry, putting him in a position of a somewhat savoir in the eyes of an ex-lover. Harry closes the case for all concern and leaves the reader wanting to know what comes next.
Mr. Kemp’s British tongue-in-cheek is understandable for us across the pond and doesn’t interrupt the flow of the storyline. When his writing gets to the point, there is an intriguing explanation of Percy Crow’s, English High Societies’, and Lord Harry’s involvement.
The truth comes alive – government officials can’t be allowed to overstep their power. In this case, they were stopped by a deranged complicated man – Percy Crow.
I enjoyed the characters, the adventure, and would like to read what Lord Harry will get his head around next.
About Daniel Kemp
Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel –The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do?
In May 2018 his book What Happened In Vienna, Jack? became a number one bestseller on four separate Amazon sites: America, UK, Canada, and Australia.
Although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows best; murders laced by the mystery involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he writes, namely: Why? A Complicated Love, and the intriguing story titled The Story That Had No Beginning.
He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication, been described as –the new Graham Green — by a managerial employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of signing events, and he has appeared on ‘live’ television in the UK.
Thank you for dropping in today and I hope you will be leaving with some books Sally.
