Books & Comics / Gerry Finley-Day's other novel
« on: 28 August, 2022, 01:09:11 AM »
Just found this novel on Amazon which was ghost written by Gerry Finley-Day, Waiting in the Wing, the story of a former ANC activist whom some would call freedom fighter and others a terrorist, where one realized what a small world this was, filled with paradox. Hating white supremacy but happily heading to Moscow and then Angola to be ordered around by Russians and Cubans and finally realizing one had more in common with ‘the Boer’ than anyone else.

News / New Novel from Gerry Finley-Day
« on: 04 August, 2022, 09:14:27 AM »
Whilst at the Gerry Finley-Day signing today I came across his new novel The Men From Morgenland: A Wartime Secret Service Thriller (The Morgenland Trilogy Book 1)
Deskbound after recovering from combat wounds and shellshock, young Lieutenant-Commander Wolfram Heller of German Military Intelligence has been viewed with disdain for his war-winning ideas bordering on the fantastic. But his plan involving ‘ethnic activists’ in a sensational strike across the Mediterranean and beyond, finally given a high command blessing, results in Heller eagerly going back into the field . . . only to become the subject of a worldwide manhunt.
It's now available on kindle & is due to be released in paperback shortly
