Read full description of the books:
They say your personality is set at age seven. This is the year Helen Jenks's father left, the day after millions went missing from the bank where he was a director. Helen never gave up her belief in her father, the familiar figure, Proustian smells, his classic BMW she now owned with that familiar smell of aftershave on rainy days, but everyone has doubts . . . and everyone doubts her. Did her heritage drive her to become a major player in the City's dealing rooms, where derivatives players earn millions? The jungle of the City of London leads to the Machu Picchu trail in Peru, where Helen Jenks's heritage becomes entwined with the world's secret intelligence services and the biggest business of all, cocaine. Linda Davies takes you from the world's financial centres to the mountains and jungles of Peru, where the old Incas succumbed to the Conquistadores. And, if you want to know how the City works, read this book. 'A cracking, fast-paced thriller. Excellently researched. I thoroughly enjoyed it.' General Sir Peter de la Billière. 'Excellent depiction of Peru . . . well handled cliff-hanger ending.'' Daily Express.

Read information about the authorI am half Welsh, half Danish, or half Celt, half Viking. I love myths, legends of warriors and the sea.
I am a Politics, Philosophy and Economics graduate from Oxford University and an escaped investment banker. I spent seven years in finance in New York, London and Easter Europe, specializing in leveraged buyouts and highly leveraged securities before I ran off to write novels.
Inspired by my time in finance, I wrote Nest of Vipers which has been published around the world, optioned by MGM and is now available as an E Book. I continued to write financial thrillers and have written and had published four more which are also all available as E Books: Wilderness of Mirrors, Into the Fire, Something Wild and Final Settlement. They are all action thrillers with strong heroines who find themselves in extreme situations colliding with gorgeous men…..
I lived in Peru for three years, and in the Middle East for eight years, during which time I had a rather unfortunate run in with Iranian government forces which resulted in my being held hostage for two weeks in Iran. After UK government intervention, I was freed.
I keep reminding myself not to sweat the small stuff…
My husband and I have three wonderful, opinionated and adventurous children and it is they who inspired me to write a series for Young/Adults – Sea Djinn, Fire Djinn, Storm Djinn and King of the Djinn – magical adventure stories set in the deserts of the Empty Quarter in Arabia and modern-day Dubai.
My latest book for adults is Ark Storm – a cli fi thriller featuring a big wave surfer and Meteorologist called Gwen Boudain who foils an outrageous planned terrorist atrocity where weather manipulation was to be used as a devastating weapon. Ark Storm will be published by Tor Books - Macmillan US – in August 2014.
I do occasional pieces of journalism to hone my sense of deadline.
I live with my husband and children by the sea in Suffolk.
