10 years have passed since youngsters Bobby Massey and Linda West stumbled across an Australian Government secret cache of weapons. Now armed with new information, rogue government officials were ready to take any measures necessary to ensure their lucrative secret deal with a third world nation rebel group, remains secret.

Bobby is captured by ex-military soldiers working for the rogue elements and interrogated in an effort to get him to reveal all he knows. Witnessing Bobby’s capture, Linda recruits a serving Royal Australian Navy commander and a senior sergeant in the NSW Police Force to assist her in rescuing Bobby from his captors. The rogue government officials get a nasty surprise once the two are reunited.

James Nelson Robinson was born in Reading, Berkshire, England in 1949. At the age of eight, his family migrated to New South Wales, Australia. Finishing his schooling in 1965, 16-year-old James enlisted in the Royal Australian Navy as an apprentice Aircraft Maintenance Engineer.

Resigning his commission from the Navy in 1985, ex-Warrant Officer Robinson then joined the Australian Department of Civil Aviation where he worked until his retirement from the workforce in 2004.

While he was encouraged by his wife to write seriously for many years, it wasn’t until the forced lockdowns that came with the spread of COVID-19, that, at the mature age of 73, he finally sat down and, as they say, ‘put pen to paper.’

(Please note that James Nelson Robinson is the nom de plume of the author.)

    I grew up reading the Famous Five and loved every chapter. Read The Quarry took me back to those wonderful times, without feeling like I was reading a children's book. A great tale, this book was a pleasure to read. It was interesting, held my attention but did not demand too much of me. Perfect for a lazy afternoon or equally as good if you want to read to wind down after a hectic day. Thank you, James, for the nostalgic read. I look forward to your next publication!
