John Purkiss, the Ratcatcher, returns



Purkiss is on the sun-soaked island of Malta, taking in its ancient history and culture and contemplating his future as a hunter of renegade spies.

When he comes across a man from his past, a known gun runner, Oleksander Motruk, Purkiss feels duty bound to inform the local British Intelligence station. But why do they seem unsurprised, and unconcerned, by Motruk's presence on the island?

Investigating further, Purkiss finds himself drawn into a dangerous conspiracy involving an undercover intelligence operation and Sicilian mobsters, in which the roles are blurred and nobody can be fully trusted. In the process, he's forced to confront his own motivations for leading the life he's chosen.

By turns fast-paced and suspenseful, and packed with twist upon unpredictable twist, HAVEN is a 10,000-word short story by the author of the acclaimed RATCATCHER and DELIVERING CALIBAN.
