Trevor Spence is a journalist at The Sunday Argus, but not just any journalist. He is the Lion of Fleet Street whom rivals envy as the man with the impressive string of high-calibre, front-page exclusive stories. For years he delivers the best and he thinks himself invincible and untouchable. But then the emergence of the worldwide web changes the game of news reporting. Soon Spence finds himself marginalised by the internet, his type of journalism rendered old-fashioned and outdated. His job is under threat and with it his king's crown. He gets desperate, he indulges in illegal means to obtain what proves to be a wrong story and an innocent young man dies. Will his guilty conscience get the better of him ? Will he lose everything that matters to him? Or will the lion roar again in his newspaper jungle?

Patrick Symes

Pat Symes worked for national newspapers, radio and television for forty years, a freelance reporter, specialising in sport. Symes has written numerous sports books including the ghosted autobiographies of the West Indian cricketers Gordon Greenidge and Malcolm Marshall. He estimates he must have covered almost 2,000 football matches and many happy days of county cricket, never forgetting how privileged he was to be paid for what he loved doing best. Symes combined this with several years teaching journalism at Solent University. This is his first attempt at a novel.
