Chris and Mick

C – Mick how are you brother?

M – I’m very well mate, thanks for the invite. It’s great to meet you face to face so to speak, well as face to face as you can get these days.

C – It’s amazing isn’t it Mick, I feel like I’ve met all these amazing people and the truth is I haven’t.

M – It’s the next best thing mate.

C – I get peoples numbers on my phone so I can show someone and say “Yep, look he is my friend!” What an amazing life story you’ve had, and as I’ve said to you before what a great example you set to our young people with your adventures, in the ocean rowing capacity I’ll say for people who are unaware of your story…

My new thriller series ‘The Hans Larsson Novels’ – by Chris Thrall

Dear Friends

Just a quick intro to my A Hans Larsson Novel book series – the video explains it all and is worth watching for avid readers of books and up-and-coming authors. It’s day 2 of the series launch with The Drift and The Trade and we are already hitting the bestseller categories on Amazon and the five-star reviews are pouring in. Very rewarding after 3 years hard work.

Here’s the blurb for The Drift

“Following the death of his wife and son, Hans Larsson buys a yacht named Future, intending to sail across the Atlantic with his young daughter Jessica. En route they meet Penny, a seasoned English skipper, who joins them as crew, and the larger-than-life Marcel, a Dutch art dealer hiding a secret, along with a stash of drugs on his vintage boat. Battling storms, sharks and pirates, Hans and Jessica experience the adventure of a lifetime, until fate intervenes to leave them fighting for survival on an ocean less perilous than the mind . . .”

“Among the best of the newcomers” The Star

“From the shores of Maine to a cannabis farm in Morocco and a production line in Japan, The Drift will have you frantically turning pages and wondering how the hell it will end.” Bestselling author, Mark Time


The Trade is the second book in the series and I’m very happy with the clever follow-up!
