I have published a book which tells the story of an Aberdonian military nurse who returns from Afghanistan and encounters The Grey Lady Ghost of the Cambridge Military Hospital. The novel reveals her origins and takes him to a pre-war Duthie Park, modern day Cruden Bay and back to the past to the Battle of Loos in World War One where he witnesses the Gordon Highlanders in action. This is the first in the series of Grey and Scarlet Novels by me, CG Buswell, and each book will feature a well known Aberdeen ghost and Aberdeenshire area as well as modern Scottish Infantry in action. Read the first chapter for free.

An experience as the victim of crime motivated Lance to become a writer. He was waiting at a set of traffic lights in Aberdeen with his girlfriend. Four men set upon his car and tried to goad him to get out of his car for a fight. Fortunately no harm came to Lance or his girlfriend, though his car was badly damaged by this unprovoked violent attack.


Direct Action Novel



Direct Action Lance Black



His first novel, Direct Action, was published by online book store like Amazon in November 2006 in a private print run of 5000 copies. Direct Action went on sale in July 2007 locally in Aberdeen and sold 500 copies within the first two weeks. It then made number two on the WH Smith Scottish list of top books. Direct Action by Lance Black is a fictional book set in the Granite City using locations such as Ferryhill. This gritty book, loosely based on real life events, is suitable only for those aged over 18 years. Direct Action deals with the under belly of society involving graphic accounts of anti-social behaviour such as violence, boy racing, drug abuse, road rage, alcohol abuse, dangerous dogs and the violent crime that goes on in a big city such as Aberdeen.
The secret life of Aberdeen features heavily in Direct Action and characters include oil millionaires, seedy lawyers, paedophiles and vigilantes. Add in a bit of sex and you have an eye opening book written for adults.
The main plot surrounds a violent murder and Lance draws upon his legal experience to write in a legal loophole that could see the murderer go free and unpunished. Zero tolerance could be the answer...
