Unsure what career path to follow Jerry Gray decided to drive overland to Australia in a camper-van. Unfortunately, the van was written off in a field after a party, so Jerry set off on foot with a back- pack. He reached India before falling ill, terminally, as far as the trip was concerned. In 1990 he took part in the Mille Miglia Retrospective in a 1933 Alfa Romeo 1750. His experiences and photographs of the Mille Miglia were published in classic car magazines and he won a photographic prize in Corriere della Sera.

Jerry lives in Buckinghamshire with his long-suffering wife Inge, who still believes he has too much “man-fun”: he motorbikes, plays racketball, drinks real ale and goes on annual golf weekends with his ex-football friends.

The Headhunter is Jerry’s first novel and the humour varies from sophisticated word-play and allusion to coarse schoolboy wit.

The novel opens with the hero, Adam Noone, contemplating the murder of his new, female boss. The first chapter reveals her awful, ruthless character and therefore hints at why Noone has reached breaking point; the chapter ends with him about to reflect on how it all went wrong. Anyone who has worked in an office will recognise characters and behaviours, so sit back and enjoy the ride!

The Headhunter can be purchased from Amazon.
