In his books, Skippen has described Paul Ryan as a risk-taker. He is a former Para hailing from East End, London. The world around him is filled with revenge and violence. Author Skippen has written his debut series in such a way that each of its books can be read as a standalone novel. However, he says that the series can be enjoyed best if the books are read in the order of their release. Skippen is hopeful that a day will come when the thriller lovers will want to walk with Paul Ryan on the streets. He is pretty much satisfied with the amount of success he has received in his career so far.

Skippen intends to write a few more books in the Paul Ryan novel series in the years to come. He is grateful for all the support he has received from the audience all over the world.

After writing and publishing four mind-blowing titles, Skippen is now working on the development of the fifth book of his writing career and is expected to release it soon.

He would have continued to serve until he grew old enough to jump out of an aircraft if his father had not been murdered. What bothers him, even more, is that his father’s death is labeled as a suicide by the coroner.

Paul Ryan knew his father very well and is not ready to accept that he was so weak mentally to take such a drastic step. Paul decides to investigate his father’s murder on his own and punish the culprit with an equally suitable punishment. He has lots of resources to use, but has a shortage of cash. So, he takes up a job at a cash-in-transit outfit. Paul Ryan heists a wagon of his employer and sets out to take revenge for his father’s death in East End, London. As Paul takes the step of becoming a robber, he attracts other robbers. They intend to rob his money and Pau; uses this opportunity to obtain information about a killer who does not exist so far. He assisted in this work by a squad of trustworthy robbers. Paul thinks this way of investigating is less odious as compared to the investigation carried out by the attractive Detective Inspector Karen Brown, who is also his girlfriend. The two met each other for the first time at Paul’s work in financial services.

After getting to the bottom of the mystery of his father’ death, Paul Ryan goes on to take up the role of a quasi-MI-5 agent in order to find and rescue England’s Home Secretary abducted by a terrorist organization based in Europe. In the meantime, a gang leader from East End plans to steal 2 million pounds from Paul Ryan. But, Paul gets to him before he could rob him. Later, a change in the hierarchy of East End’s gangs finds Paul caught up in a deadly feud. Following the execution of a terrorist group’s leader, Paul Ryan is set on their target along with the Home Secretary. The events that follow next make Paul believe that an attempt to assassinate the minister might take place soon. He does not fear his life and starts investigating to prevent such an attack on the Home Secretary.
