Brotherly Love by Eddie Gubbins

Brotherly Love
A thriller by Eddie Gubbins.
This is the story of family loyalty. Can loyalty to a family member be misplaced or must it always be adhered to? This is a question which is posed in many situations every day to many people. If a family member is going off the rails should he or she be reported to the authorities? Does the thought of the affect this reporting will have on the rest of the family colour the decision?
When his brother Norman out of the blue asked Ken Flood for help, Ken does not question his motives. He is his brother anyway. He does not question the nature of the activity. In many aspects what he is asked to do has all the marks of a criminal act or at least shady pursuit.
Ken has to ask himself if what he is asked to do is outside the law, should he abandon his brother to seek help elsewhere?
When Ken agrees he is forced to flee across the Channel and on to London. He has no idea of what side he is on or who is enemies can be. He feels that everybody is looking for him, that enemies lurk bin all the shadows. Where will it all end? He asks himself.

Running After Maria by Eddie Gubbins

A tragic romance novel.
James Ashleigh lives to him the perfect life. Plenty of money, plenty of women and plenty of drink to keep him happy. He spends his working time sailing the oceans of the world as an officer on oil tankers. Carefree, he is not tied to one place but visits exotic places around the world. When on leave, he can completely please himself as to what he does. Life is great.
Feeling the need to move from oil tankers, he joins a small company whose ships trade to the Baltic. While the ship is in Helsinki discharging cargo, he meets Maria. His life changes from that point. He is no longer carefree but tied to a place and another person. He starts to look forward with excitement to arriving in Helsinki and her letters when he gets back to London.
The novel charts the progress of those changes, both for good and bad. Through the twisting path of James' life we follow his joy and his despair in his relationship to Maria.
As time passes he wonders whether he will be truly happy again.

Natalia Sikorska

This case illustrates the inherent bias in the English legal system. Natalia Sikorska stole £1000 worth of goods from Harrods.
The magistrate gave her a suspended sentence because she is intelligent and with considerable talents. Whats rubbish. She is a thief and has broken the law.
If she happened to be a black working class woman, she would have been sent to jail! The magistrate would not have said to her " I know you are poor and struggling to get through life so I will be lenient." Lock her up would have been ther cry.
It is a disgrace!
