Afghanistan. Every year, an assignment for thousands of British personnel. Some of them bring back more than memories. TV producer Dan Simmons wants to film it all. He finds a regiment about to be deployed to the Afghan war on a radical anti-heroin operation. He gets himself embedded. He shoots some film. Then he shoots himself. The Ministry of Defence puts Military Police captain Stef Maguire under pressure to file it all away. But Maguire has heard the TV man's dying words and they lead her to someone called Tom Fletcher. Ex-cop, ex-PI, now Fletcher is living the perfect life in a house in the country. A very isolated house. Fletcher doesn't know why the TV man shot himself. But some very dangerous people think otherwise. And when they begin to threaten Fletcher's family, it's time for him to act.

There are more than enough twists and turns to keep any hardened thriller aficionado interested.' -- News of the World on CUT OUT 'A brutal examination of betrayal by an author who knows how to show exactly what his characters are putting in jeopardy' -- Natasha Cooper, author and book critic 'Richly imaginative...could just possibly turn Tom Fletcher into another Morse' -- The Times on STEEL WITCHES 20080412 'A terrific climax...A breadth to the story that is captivating, as well as some finely drawn characters and lovely language, but the star must be the fantastic landscape' -- Tangled Web on STEEL WITCHES 20080412 'Intelligent and well-written examination of prejudice and paranoia, misogyny, jealousy and fear' -- Times Literary Supplement on STEEL WITCHES 20080314 'The undoubted strengths of this book are Lennon's storytelling and his ability to ramp up the atmosphere...a truly tense ending...If you're a fan of Jim Kelly, you should give Lennon's books a try...an unusual and exciting slant' -- Reviewingtheevidence.com on STEEL WITCHES 20080430 'Multi-layered and deeply satisfying...an engaging series character with a genuine emotional life' -- Shotsmag on CORN DOLLS 20070301 'A writer to watch' -- Mark Billingham 20061211 'The reader ends up in a rather emotional state...becoming increasingly agitated...a delightfully unexpected twist...an extremely enjoyable book' -- eurocrime.co.uk on STEEL WITCHES 20080501 'A great read that mixes politics, historical pageantry, resentment and revenge in a seemingly quiet Cambridge village.

Lennon marries the unusual Russian angle very slickly with the remote village and its odd traditions...If you're a fan of Jim Kelly's Fenland series, you shouldn't miss CORN DOLLS. It's a fabulous first novel.' -- reviewingtheevidence.com on CORN DOLLS 20070731 'A new author and a new character ... both have great promise ... well worth following' -- Publishing News on CORN DOLLS 20060519 'PI Tom Fletcher of the highly atmospheric CORN DOLLS returns in another Cambridgeshire tale...a great character' -- Bookseller 20080222
