Derek Anderton

After living in Southport until he was eighteen, Derek Anderton spent two years in National Service in the RAF and then moved to Merseyside where he has lived for the past sixty years. Most of that time he worked in managerial roles for different organisations.

Now retired, he continues to write as he considers it a good way to keep Alzheimer's at bay.

He has previously written two books based on the fictional seaside resort of Widdlesea in the 1950s and considered that it was high time to drag the town into the present day with Fracktured.

About Book

When a shale gas exploration company uses bribery to gain planning permission to frack, its plans go badly wrong, leading to murder and suicide. When the location for drilling is revealed as being right next door to one of England's most picturesque villages and also near to endangered wildlife, it leads to violent protests. Local residents team up with anti-fracking campaigners and wildlife preservationists to mount a massive protest which rapidly gains national momentum. Meanwhile, superintendent Bernie Greenwell and his C.I.D. team are convinced that there is a link between the murder and the suicide. Then two dedicated anti-fracking campaigners uncover evidence which links the drilling company.

A diverse cast of inter-woven characters, an extra-marital affair, bribery, corruption, suicide and murder all make this a compelling story that you won't be able to put down.
