Hard Cases (A Ryan Kyd Omnibus)

by Roger Hurn

Meet Ryan Kyd, a former member of the elite Diplomatic Protection Group.

In his time, Ryan guarded Royalty, Prime Ministers and faced down terrorists. Now he’s set up on his own as a Private Investigator on the mean streets of South Londonâ?¦

In ‘Hard Cases’ the first three best-selling Ryan Kyd thrillers are collected together for the first time.


Trouble comes calling in the shape of “DK” Kapoor, a shady businessman. Ryan is plunged into a world of arranged marriages, scheming relations, kidnapping and murder.

It’s a far cry from the P.I. role Ryan had expected, tracing missing persons and recording adulterous liaisons. Now his business is murderâ?¦


The Church of the Dark Light commands its followers to ’embrace the darkness’ inside themselves. But after a beautiful young girl joins the cult, she mysteriously vanishes.

Ryan suspects the church is a scam and holds little hope of his client’s sister returning. So he gives the job to his assistant – the feisty and street sharp Carly.

But before long he is drawn into the cult’s world of beautiful people, high rollers, bent cops, Russian fixers, stolen guns and a politician with a sinister secret. And as he digs deeper, Ryan discovers the ‘Hand of Darkness’ can reach everywhere…


Christmas Eve. While the rest of London is celebrating, Private Investigator Ryan Kyd is drowning his sorrows in his local pub. On his way back to the office to crash out on the sofa, he sees a woman being mugged in the street.

Her handbag has been stolen – and it contains a priceless necklace that she has borrowed from the auction house where she works. If she can’t get it back she faces not only losing her job, but a jail sentence as well.

Gallantly, Ryan Kyd comes to her rescue. But he soon regrets his decision. Nothing about the case is what it seemsâ?¦

Can he solve the mystery of the missing necklace? Or will he end up among the Dead of Winter?

‘An accomplished and entertaining slice of London noir.’ – Robert Foster, author of ‘The Lunar Code’.

Roger Hurn has had over 70 books published. In his spare time Roger plays seven-a-side football and, to the horror of music lovers everywhere, guitar in a rock band.

1) You will be told about how to calculate your keto macros and calorie requirements within the first pages of the book.
2) Once you have your objectives set, you will be able to go straight to carefully designed schedules, choose one and get started.
