Read full description of the books:
THE CALIGULA CLUB series is an exuberant, rumbustious, tongue in cheek exposition of the events that led to the downfall of money and the eventual collapse of the financial systems of the world. In a style where Tom Sharpe meets Leslie Thomas, the reader is swept along on a tidal wave of outrageously drawn plots and gloriously improbable characterisations that leave the reader breathless in their wake.
THE CALIGULA CLUB’S NEWEST RECRUIT opens with two young students, Dickie Forsythe and his girl friend Melissa, enjoying a picnic after the end of their finals at Oxford University. Dickie's hopes of easy street courtesy of Melissa's extremely rich father are dashed after a caper goes badly wrong. Dickie Forsythe leaves Oxford and joins a Japanese Securities firm. In the newly emerging Japanese economic powerhouse, he embarks upon a helter-skelter race for the greatest return for the least amount of effort. His shenanigans succeed in embroiling the Yakuza, Russian mobsters, the Imperial Royal family.
The Caligula Club was formed from the tragedy of a wartime love affair between bluestocking Esther and Trewbridge, a young fighter pilot, who tragically is emasculated after a flying accident and reformed into a woman by a brilliant if unscrupulous surgeon. After the war he assumes life as a dual personality, Trewbridge by day and Clarissa by night. The Caligula Club is formed out of their desire to satisfy natural desires and to find surrogates for much yearned for children. By a quirk of fate the Caligula Club’s mix of intelligentsia, men of power and nubile young women, in want of a highly intelligent and/or successful sire, causes the Caligula Club to swell in size and influence, until it emerges as the world’s most powerful secret society.
If you like understated zany English humour then this book is for you.
“The Caligula Club’s Newest Recruit is a side splittingly funny tale of silliness and high finance set in the roaring Eighties. I still think about that orgy scene every night just before I go to sleep “(A pretty good mate, bribed with a curry take-away and sixteen pints)
“This book is absolutely disgustingly filthy and should be banned from appearing in print in order to safeguard National Morality” (Same mate; no seconds)
“This is a very commendable effort even if some of it is a little difficult to comprehend. Well done, dear!” (Mum on reading an expurgated version)
“Tom Sharpe, Sven Hassel and Leslie Thomas rolled into one magnificent rollercoaster ride” Mrs Bridges (A lovely land lady owed considerable back rent)
“Splendid” “Brilliant” “Awesome”; Independent; old git who saw the cover on the bus
“Highly entertaining and most enlightening” Guardian; (Parole officers have the fanciest titles these days)

Read information about the authorI have always read avidly. I was lucky enough to read English at University before the real world rudely interrupted and demanded that i find a way to make a living. For many years I devoted myself to pursuing a career that I was good at but which held little real allure. Five years ago I began to write. A million words later and i really ought to be getting a bit better at it. The Caligula Club series is an irreverent look at the financial markets and recent contemporary events. It is written in with an understated English humour that readers either get or find perplexing. I greatly enjoyed writing them and hope that at least some of my readers will share a few lazy hours enjoying my efforts.
