A Sleaford area author has just published his latest thriller novel, this time entwined with recent tragic events.
Secondary school teacher Donald McDonald has penned ‘9/12 Another Day’, a fictional story about Joe Solomon.
He tells how , after a troubled upbringing, Joe joins the military, giving it up for a career in finance, but becomes ensnared by organised crime into insider trading. He is wanted by prosecutors as a star witness, putting him and his family in mortal danger.
On the morning of the ‘9/11’ tragedy, he walks to his office in the Twin Towers and everything changes.
Believed dead, he starts a new life until he finds out his widow needs money to pay for a life-saving operation for the son Joe never knew he had.
Before teaching, Donald admits he has had a variety of jobs including advertising copywriter, assistant cinema manager and scaffolder’s mate.
His novels Ignatius-Tagg and its sequel Sunshine for the Righteous were published by The Daily Mail as Ignatius Tagg – Dark Horse and critically acclaimed by Amazon book reviewers.
He has a canon of work including screenplays, stage and radio plays and hopes his sequel to the original The Italian Job film will be considered.
9/12 Another Day is Donald’s fourth novel published by Brewin Books, available at £9.95. He is currently penning Someone, a story set in New York in the fifties.
