Devon based, visually impaired Author, Paul Stretton-Stephens launches his first title, The Plastic Paradigm, in The Jack Jago Thriller Series where Paul himself a veteran, writes about a Jack Jago an ex-Royal Marine and an ex-Royal Military Policeman.

The story centres on the popular current environmental topic of plastic pollution with which Paul has interest due to his passion for the seas and oceans.

Here’s the blurb and cover:

The Plastic Paradigm – If Plastic Waste is the “New Narcotic”, then Jack Jago is the antidote.

After a top government research scientist and his assistant go missing, Jack Jago goes undercover, posing as a lone fisherman, where he’s at home on the water and busy gathering samples and intelligence.

One evening a ship in port weighs its anchor, revealing the body of a young seaman. His killers had tied him to a link in the anchor chain, and now they’re after his contacts, but why?

Although Jago is happy to work alone his life moves up a gear, to the level where he is most comfortable – one teeming with action and danger, where he has to outsmart and defeat his criminal adversaries.

The question is: Can Jago prevent further loss of life while bringing the upswell of corruption, death, and plastic pollution to an end?

As this absorbing story unfolds, readers are engaged in a world of intrigue, murder, corruption, scandal and action, one that seriously questions the morality of the greedy. As the pages turn, the reader is transported into this compelling world until the very end. To quote Emma, an advanced reader:

“This is great; I’m there, I’m in the story.”
