Burning Wolfhound - a novel

I have written six novels over the years but I regard the first five as practice and not for publishing, this is number six:




Available on Amazon as a Kindle or paper book:
Burning Wolfhound a novel by Justin Tuijl - view at amazon

Wolfhound is an action adventure thriller where Bernhart Smith chases a gang of criminals across the world in his ex-navy gun boat the Wolfhound. Set in 1968 during the cold war, starting on a deary North Norfolk Coast of England and with a Norton motorbike; then on to Rotterdam, Oldenzaal, Gibraltar, Monaco, Malta, Egypt, and India where he meets the early scene if Goa freaks. Finally on a Royal Enfield motorbike he heads up India and on to the Himalayan town of Darjeeling where he finds his journey has not ended. We are swept along with the main characters fears and desires as we burn to a gripping twist at the end.

Contains scenes which are not suitable for minors. Sex (not explicit) drug taking (not excessive) violence (not graphic) maybe a 15 rating. 100.000 words.

This novel was five years in the making!
