“The Man Who Missed The Boat:” Here’s The Cover


Quick View Peter

The Man Who Missed The Boat,

Pre-order available for Kindle, delivered to your device by mysterious means on 9th April

Paper-back published 10th April

How it Begins:

He did not really have a career. More a series of jobs, which took him to different experiences and outlooks, and that is how he sold the situation to himself. Simon Baxter was one of those people who, armed with a clean shirt, could enter any room or salon and be taken as an equal until someone asked him what he did.

“I can’t remember,” sometimes sprang to mind and got a laugh, but the probing might continue. Finally, it might dawn on them that he did a bit of quite a lot of things, and nothing.

You could watch the shadow pass across their faces. Suggestions about good restaurants would die on their lips, and he became what he always became: the polite outsider, the enigma, the man who missed the boat.

Can anything happen, planned or unplanned, which will change his life ?

Read the Book and find out. I did !
