After much deliberation I came to the conclusion a new book cover was needed for the latest book in the Steve Regan Undercover Cop series. It’s Book 2 and titled Dilemma. There have been some early reviews of Dilemma too.
I hope you like it as much as I do. My wife commented, “it looks like a movie poster.” That’s good… right?
Here is the new cover:
The paperback version is to be released any time soon on Amazon.
And here are two early reviews as posted on Amazon UK:

5.0 out of 5 stars Even better than the first book

In the second Steve Regan book, we find Regan, (now known as Ryan), managing a bar and whorehouse in Thailand. He is undercover again of course, working a new drug case. What he doesn’t know is that he will soon be pitched against an old enemy from the past, one that puts his life and that of his new lover, Fon, in mortal danger. Dilemma is without doubt a faster moving, more polished and pacy read than the first book in the trilogy. It’s a genuine page-turner with plenty of action and a real and satisfying love interest for the hero of the piece, which serves to make Regan a more believable ‘human’ character. I must commend the author on a most surprising and ingenious twist in the tale as the ending really took me by surprise. I will certainly look forward to the next Steve Regan story. This was worth the preorder and didn’t disappoint me at all.
4.0 out of 5 starsThe Luck Of The Irish
11 July 2018
Format: Kindle Edition
“Lucky’s Bar but it isn’t going to be so lucky for you …”
Regan is undercover and waiting in Lucky’s Bar on the edge of the red light district in Patong,Thailand. He has been waiting for four months for a drugs deal with $50,000 in his bag.
“Regan likened the waiting to fishing. You threw out the bait and hoped for the big one.”
A Thai enters and puts a gun to his head. He was sent by an American called Watkins. But who is Watkins?
This story uncovers Russian gun smuggling, drugs, mafia, people trafficking, women held in metal containers, nerve agents, gruesome killings. Regan ends up in the slammer, or ‘monkey house’ with the men and ‘ladyboys’ and, but for the woman who has fallen for him, there he would have stayed. This is a man’s read but lucky for Regan, he has the right woman in tow.
Sabai Sabai means no dramas, no dilemmas in Thai. This novella is packed with drama and one big dilemma for Regan. But ‘Lucky’ is clearly his middle name.
If you like your stories hard-boiled, then this is one for you.
I received an advance copy for review.
Woohoo! Nice start indeed. It will be interesting to see what other female readers make of it as I don’t agree “it’s a man’s read.” All reviews are opinion, of course.
You may wish to know I have twenty free ARC’s of Dilemma for honest reviews. Grab one here on Bookgobbler if you want one.
