Andy Ross and his team have an international investigation on their hands. As the late night train from Manchester to Liverpool approaches the city, it hits the body of a man. After the police look into the case, they learn that the man was a well-known movie director - of the adult variety. Soon, they find out that the man's list of enemies is almost as long as the railway line from Manchester to Liverpool. Is his murder personal or professional? With two disgruntled ex-wives - both with a motive for murder - thrown into the mix, Ross and his team attempt to solve the mystery of the Last Train to Lime Street. This is a standalone mystery, and can be enjoyed even if you haven't read other books in the series. Praise from readers: ★★★★★ - "I highly recommend this series, not only to lovers of British novels but to readers of all mystery and crime stories." ★★★★★ - "Written in Porter's upbeat, witty and British vernacular style, Last Train to Lime Street is a cracking read."

Philadelphia, 1791. James and Maria Reynolds are flat broke. Well aware of the attraction between his wife and Treasury Secretary Alexander Hamilton, James hatches a plan to blackmail Alexander and get rich - and sends Maria to seduce him.

Meanwhile, the mysterious Dr. Severus Black befriends the Hamiltons and becomes a close confidant of Alexander's wife, Eliza. While Mrs. Hamilton grows fond of the handsome doctor, she also senses something different about the debonair young man.

Meanwhile, a vicious serial killer is stalking the city by night. As Hamilton's affair with Maria runs headlong towards personal and professional catastrophe, the constables of Philadelphia draw a net around the apparently deranged killer of young serving girls.

But what connection could Dr. Black have with the murders, which a hundred years later would be mirrored in his own country... by none other than Jack the Ripper?

In 'Sharing Hamilton', historical romance author Diana Rubino and award-winning thriller writer Brian L. Porter uniquely blend the mystery and romance genres, based on the true story of the Hamilton affair with the added spice of a serial killer stalking the streets of USA's first capital city.

An advance review:

A MERSEY MARINER is a truly multi-layered mystery that keeps the reader on the edge of their seats. In a story almost like a maritime version of Christie's Orient Express, Porter takes the reader on a whirlwind journey to the Amazon Rain forest, finds links to a Colombian Drugs Cartel, and multiple murders in a secret medical research laboratory. - Mario Domina, CEO, ThunderBall Films

About the Book:

DEATH ARRIVES ON THE MORNING TIDE.

The ageing cargo liner Alexandra Rose steams into the Mersey Estuary, enveloped in thick fog that delays her entry into the port of Liverpool. When one of the ship's passengers is found dead in his cabin, a chain of events is set in motion that leads to one of Detective Inspector Andy Ross's most baffling and complicated cases to date.

The first death is soon followed by another, and Ross discovers that his case has its roots in the depths of the Amazonian Rainforest in Brazil. A billionaire entrepreneur, passengers who may not be exactly who or what they say they are, a team of medical researchers and a team of vicious mercenaries combine to confound and complicate what begins as a simple death aboard a nondescript and insignificant ship.

Ross and his team from the Merseyside Police Specialist Murder Investigation team need all their skills in order to solve the case of the 'Mersey Mariner.'

Her love of life and capacity for enjoying every day to the fullest is nothing short of miraculous, and her story is told here by the person who shares every moment of her life on a daily basis, and how a disabled author and his dog have become dependent on each other.

Sheba is the sequel to Brian L Porter's award-winning bestseller, Sasha, and tells the story of rescue dog Sheba, Sasha’s best friend, starved, beaten and used as bait for the training of fighting dogs and then thrown on a rubbish tip and left to die, a barely living skeleton.

The author and his wife adopted this unfortunate waif and so began a long period of recuperation and training, as they gradually helped Sheba back to full health and helped her to learn to live sociably and happily within their pack of rescue dogs.

A story of real triumph over adversity, full of emotion and a fair amount of humor too, Sheba’s is a real-life tale of what can be achieved in rehabilitating a dog, having suffered a living hell, from the brink of death to a life full of happiness.

This is the story of Cassie: a rescue dog who was just over two years old when she joined Brian and Juliet’s family of rescues, having already had three previous owners in her short life. The tiny little terrier soon wormed her way into the hearts of the family, and her antics and oversized attitude quickly earned her the nicknames ‘The Mad Ferret’ and ‘The Wicked Witch of the West.’ Cassie can best be described as a ‘pocket dynamo’ or, as the author puts it, “She is filled with boundless energy, and despite being fourteen years old now, she’s like a Duracell bunny without an off switch.” Cassie has bounced back from operations, managed to get lost and found in one afternoon, chased away Rottweilers and Dobermans that have had the nerve to try and steal her tennis ball, and found herself being injured by interfering in larger dogs’ squabbles. People just can’t help falling in love with this tiny bundle of joy. Cassie’s Tale is the third book in Brian L. Porter’s series of rescue dogs, following on from the award-winning bestsellers, Sasha and Sheba: From Hell to Happiness.
