Final slide for Mainsail Books

Mainsail Books specialises in financial, political and psychological thrillers. Although our books are novels, they are based on the real, hard-bitten experience of those who have actually navigated the stormy waters of politics, intrigue and back-stabbing which permeate both the boardroom and the financial world. Our authors, Ray Green, Rose Edmunds, and Joel Hames have, between them, accumulated decades of experience operating at the highest levels in business and finance.

Ray Green enjoyed a colourful career in business before becoming an author; he has experienced, first hand, the often shockingly dark corporate world. The first three books in the ‘Roy Groves Thriller Series’‘Buyout’, ‘Payback’, and ‘Chinese Whispers’ – chart the principal character’s clashes with twisted office politics, evil opponents bent on revenge, and organised crime. The final book in the series, ‘Horizontal Living’, is a darkly comic thriller which sees the main protagonist retire to an expat community in Spain’s Costa del Sol. Ray’s latest series ‘The Identity Thrillers trilogy, consisting of three books, ‘Lost Identity’, ‘Identity Found´, and ‘New Identity’, is a series of gripping psychological thrillers set in the criminal world of drug trafficking, revenge, and murder.

For more than 20 years, Rose Edmunds almost passed as normal in several leading accountancy firms, working diligently undercover to research her novels. In her debut thriller, ‘Never Say Sorry’, a medical conspiracy escalates to fraud and murder as a pharmaceutical company tries to suppress a miracle cancer cure. She is now best known for the ‘Crazy Amy Thriller Series’, which follows brilliant but unstable Amy in her journey from high-flying finance executive to who knows where… So far three books have been released – ‘Concealment’, ‘Exposure’ and ‘Restitution’. Further books are planned for publication in 2021 and beyond.

A decade in the City of London gave Joel Hames enough insight into greed and hubris for a hundred books, but to date he has just nine. Joel is best known for the psychological thriller ‘The Lies I Tell’ and his series featuring Sam Williams, a one-time hot-shot lawyer with a knack for being on the wrong case at the right time, which starts with the novels ‘Dead North’, ‘No One Will Hear’ and ‘The Cold Years’ and includes prequel novels and novellas.

Sometimes real life is stranger than fiction.
