All my Yudel Gordon thrillers are now available as ebooks. This series contains an free download of a previously unpublished, original Yudel Gordon story that I am sure you will love. It is called The League of Geniuses. It is about a bank robbery undertaken by a league of genuine, but deeply flawed geniuses.

The Yudel Gordon books have been published in many countries and languages. It is my special pleasure to extend Yudel’s reach into an entirely new market through this fresh, attractive and low-cost medium.

The existence of the ebook trade has made it possible for me to pass to my many readers the opportunity to receive some free ebooks from my collection.

The Yudel Gordon books are all thrillers. Some reviewers have described them as psychological thrillers and some as political thrillers. I would like to think they encompass both. Yudel is a prison psychologist and solves his cases through his understanding of human behaviour, especially criminal behaviour.

On the political side, in apartheid years although he was a civil servant he struggled to see justice done while often hindered and sometimes threatened by the apartheid state. Since the end of apartheid he has been faced by an entirely new reality, a different civil service with other challenges, and sometimes formidable echoes of the past.

In some ways the Yudel Gordon books are now a racy, thriller version of recent South African history.

Please enjoy the ebooks free download, as well as the others, which I have ensured are all available at really affordable prices.

Yours in books and reading,

A League of Geniuses

Dr Cyril Daniels, a senior psychologist in the Department of Correctional Services, is unhappy. He is nearing retirement and is dissatisfied with the pension he is going to receive. In recent years younger people and those who are seen as coming from disadvantaged circumstances are passing him by.

But he has a solution to his problems. Under his personal care is a gathering of extremely talented criminals. He believes that, if he can harness their talents, he can pull off a bank job that will leave him with a very comfortable retirement. He can also treat his dying wife, Charlotte, whom he loves dearly, to a trip to South America, a continent she has always wanted to visit.

Only two problems stand in his way. The first is that those under his care, supremely talented though they may be, are all insane. The second is that Yudel Gordon, his colleague and friend of many years has become aware that something untoward is brewing. Yudel has been a party to the solving of many crimes and Daniels is well aware that the matter has to be kept as far from him as humanly possible.

Whatever the risks, Daniels is determined to go ahead. His team consists of a brilliant hypnotist who is also a schizophrenic, a safecracker who suffers from multiple personality syndrome – four personalities in all, an alarm specialist whose left hand is in rebellion against his brain, and a getaway driver who once won Le Mans but now finds any criminal activity irresistible. Daniels has to weld his group into a working unit while keeping their lunacy from causing the whole enterprise to descend into farce.

For his part, Yudel cannot allow the bank to be robbed, but he also cannot face seeing Daniels imprisoned and Charlotte deserted in the closing days of her life. Problems, conflicts and Daniels’s need for sudden wealth are compounded into a story full of both thrills and laughter.
