Andrew Turpin
Andrew Turpin is a thriller, crime, and historical fiction author who enjoys writing and reading good thriller stories. As an author, he is able to combine his two interests, and so far, the results have been amazing.

His debut novel, The Last Nazi, was published in 2017, and the second one followed a year after. The author explores ways human behaviors and events impact modern society, business, and politics in all his books. Turpin went to Loughborough University to study history.

He worked for years as a financial journalist and later became an economic and corporate communications adviser. Today, he writes full time and enjoys spending time with his family in his St. Albans in Hertfordshire, U.K. home.

The Last Nazi
The Last Nazi comes first in A Joe Johnson Thriller series. This book introduces Joe Johnson, an ex-CIA officer and War Crimes investigator, and Fiona Heppenstall, a political journalist. These two are attending a rally and meeting Joe’s brother, who wants to share something, but this does not happen. Fiona feels that Joe’s brother had something important to share and teams up with Joe to uncover the truth.

They discover ruthless blackmail and a link between a U.S. presidential hopeful campaign financing and a Nazi train hidden during Hitler’s era. The investigation grows even bigger when Joe meets a Holocaust killer who managed to escape his net.

During the second world war, two brothers are forced to dig tunnels in the concentration camp. Fortunately, they both survive and establish a successful jewelry business. Many years later, their grandson is a U.S. presidential hopeful, and the link to the concentration camp is causing more damage than anticipated. Joe and his journalist friend get involved, but their questions put them on criminal networks’ radar.

With high-level intelligence in three continents working against them, they have to keep looking behind their shoulders and always think three steps ahead.
Can Joe avenge his mother’s past, find justice for those affected by the current blackmail, and revive his career?
What happens when the truth comes to the surface?

This is a fast-paced and action-packed story characterized by deceit, deception, and conspiracy.
The story spans three continents and goes back to events that occurred in the 1940s and their effects decades later. All historical aspects are well executed, and it is clear that the author took his time doing the research.

The balance between the historical information and the event unfolding at the moment is just right, so the story remains intriguing to the last page. Secrets that have remained buried come to the surface and bring enough surprises to all involved.

Some of these secrets will bring specific chapters to a close, while others will create enough barriers in other characters’ lives.
The Last Nazi is a well-researched conspiracy story with many intriguing sub-plots.

It features war crimes, scandal, Nazism, revenge, and corruption. All characters are well developed, and the main ones will stay with you long after you are done reading.

Joe is a likable character. Even though he has a demanding job, he still manages to spend time with his children. His relationship with Fiona is also admirable, and these two form quite a team. If you love action, crime, and adventure stories, this book is for you. The tale is highly believable, and it is notable how the author makes you feel like you are part of the action.

The Kremlin’s Vote
The Kremlin’s Vote comes first in the Jayne Robinson series. When Curtis Steyn, New Hampshire secretary of state, is murdered in Landon, the CIA swings into action. The U.S. government wants to find the killer fast.

However, after a few misleads, Jayne Robinson, a long-term M16 agent, is covertly deployed to investigate the senseless killing. For Robinson, this case is personal. Styne was her long-term friend’s husband, and she knows how much his death has affected her. Also, there is enough pressure from the White House, thanks to the looming presidential election.

Jayne is experienced in investigating war crimes, so she is well equipped to handle this case. She quickly finds a Russian Link the CIA had previously overlooked and starts making headways on the case.

However, as the body count goes up and more drama erupts, the mystery becomes even more challenging for this seasoned detective. Clearly, the U.S. democracy is under threat, and Jayne has to rely on dubious people to catch the ruthless assassin.

What begins as a mystery murder story turns into a political war involving people who put Jayne’s career and life at risk. Can she catch the killer? Will all the odds stack against her?

This is a skillfully crafted page-turner staring a kick-ass CIA agent. Jayne is good at her job, but things get scary when she finds herself too deep in a vortex of deceit and deception. The truth doesn’t bring any relief, and she has to keep fending off threats from different directions.
Join this determined agent on an exciting adventure characterized by brilliant action and many twists. The author throws surprises when you least expect them making it hard to predict what will happen next.

For those who have read the Joe Johnson series, this book provides another opportunity to know Jayne better. The ex-M16 agent now works as a freelance investigator, but her skills remain as outstanding as in the other series.

The Kremlin’s Vote is an entertaining story that any crime fiction fan will find irresistible. In Turpin’s fashion, the narrative is brilliantly contracted, and the attention to detail is outstanding.

Everything from the action to the pacing is done right, and the characters are so fascinating that you cannot help but get emotionally invested in their lives. You will enjoy seeing Jayne in action, and things get so intense at some point that you will not want to put the book down. There are some historical details in the story, and it is amazing how the author merges fiction into facts and still makes this read like a true story.
