Alex Lukeman is a former Marine and professional musician who lived in Scotland, although his family comes from all over the British Isles which is probably why he appreciates the UK’s history, music and culture.

He loves old, fast motorcycles and has restored many including a Norton Commando. Alex still plays the guitar, but also writes action/adventure thrillers featuring the PROJECT, an elite Presidential counter-terrorism unit. There are to date 13 PROJECT books. Alex now lives in the Sierra foothills of Northern California.

White Jade – Feb 2012

This is the first of the PROJECT books which spins a web of deceit and murder across the globe, against the backdrop of a deadly international power game.

Former Recon Marine Nick Carter is a man with a dark history of emotional and physical scars. He works for the PROJECT, a covert counter-terrorism unit reporting to the President. Selena Connor is a beautiful, strong and skilled linguist. When her wealthy uncle is murdered by someone looking for an ancient book about the elixir of immortality, she’s thrown into Nick’s dangerous world.

Nick is assigned to protect Selena and help her recover the missing text. It’s the beginning of a life and death adventure reaching from San Francisco to Beijing, from Washington to the hidden chambers of Tibet. Someone is determined to take over China and attack America–and Nick and Selena are right in the line of fire.

International intrigue, terrorist acts and the threat of nuclear war form the core of this fast-paced thriller, the first volume in a series featuring Nick, Selena and the PROJECT.

Black Harvest – June 2012

Book 4 in the series sees three world experts on crop disease discover a secret from the time of Alexander the Great and are brutally murdered.

A centuries-old conspiracy plots to destroy much of the world’s food supply as part of a plan for world domination and the PROJECT team must stop a traitor and prevent a world-wide disaster.

The hunt for answers leads Nick Carter and Selena Connor to Greece, Bulgaria and the United States. In a series of life and death confrontations they encounter unlikely allies, an ancient legacy of bio-warfare and a cover up with ominous implications for freedom.

The Solomon Scroll – May 2015

This is book 10 in the PROJECT series. The contents of a two thousand year old scroll set in motion a deadly quest for the tomb of Solomon and the long lost treasure of the Second Jewish Temple.

He’ll stop at nothing to get what he wants, including murder and treachery.

From the streets of Beirut to the barrens of Saudi Arabia and the wild canyons of Ethiopia, the PROJECT team follows an ancient trail of clues in search of Solomon’s bones and the sacred heritage of a nation.
