About the Author
Tim Standish grew up in England, Scotland and Egypt. Following a degree in Psychology, his career has included teaching English in Spain, working as a researcher on an early computer games project, and working with groups and individuals on business planning, teamworking and personal development. He has travelled extensively throughout his life and when not working or writing, he enjoys long walks under big skies and is never one to pass up a jaunt across a field in search of an obscure historic site. He has recently discovered the more-exciting-than-you-would-think world of overly-complicated boardgames.

The Sterling Directive offers an alternative theory as to the identity of this infamous killer and it’s a rather ingenious one. Sterling, as he has been named, is battle hardened, quick witted and understanding of the vulnerabilities of his position. In a modern day thriller, he’d be your archetypal Jack Reacher but in this historical setting, more can be made of his abilities. The author has succeeded in creating a mood for the period this book is set in and has done so without overloading the reader with tedious details attesting to the time in question.
Within the shady unit that Sterling now forms part of, The Map Room, there is plenty of scope for Milady and her cohorts to develop as characters and I’ll be tagging along on their next adventure.
It has a really well thought out alternate steam punk world & believable characters. Agent Sterling’s backstory is well fleshed out leaving other characters more mysterious. I read it in double quick time & now I wish I’d made it last a bit longer!
À super début novel from Mr Standish and I look forward to reading more adventures from The Map Room so I hope very much that Mr Standish is busy with the next installment! 👍🏻😃
Story moves right along and Capt. Maddox AKA Sterling is a great new creation. Thoroughly enjoyed this first instalment as I hope there are more to come
Well done on your first novel Mr Standish. I shall look forward to the next one!
