Lifting the Lid by Rob Johnson

indie ebook cover

When Trevor Hawkins hits the open road in his beat-up old camper van with his incorrigible dog, Milly, his quest for adventure soon spirals dangerously out of control. The simple act of flushing a hotel toilet transforms his life from redundant sales assistant to fugitive from a gang of psychopathic villains, the police and MI5.

Then there’s private detective Sandra Gray, who could cheerfully throttle him for turning a well paid, piece-of-cake job into a total nightmare. Or could she?

With more twists and turns than an Escher-designed bobsleigh run, Lifting the Lid is a comic thriller about how a single, split-second decision can change someone’s life forever.

‘A superb adventure-comedy... I can't wait for the sequel!’ - Jennifer Reinoehl for Readers' Favorite

'It's brilliant!... The writing is fast paced, funny and downright thrilling.' - Samantha Coville for SammytheBookworm.com

‘The story is just so much FUN! It is entertaining, well-written, cleverly planned and expertly timed.’ - Joanne Armstrong for Ingrid Hall Reviews

About The Author...

indie author

Rob Johnson


‘You’ll have to write an author biography of course.’
‘Oh? Why?’
‘Because people will want to know something about you before they lash out on buying one of your books.’
‘You think so, do you?’
‘Just do it, okay?’
‘So what do I tell them?’
‘For a start, you should mention that you’ve written four plays that were professionally produced and toured throughout the UK.’
‘Should I say anything about all the temp jobs I had, like working in the towels and linens stockroom at Debenhams or as a fitter’s mate in a perfume factory?’
‘No, definitely not.’
‘Motorcycle dispatch rider?’
‘You were sacked weren’t you?’
‘Boss said he could get a truck there quicker.’
‘Leave it out then, but make sure they know that “Quest for the Holey Snail” is the third book you’ve written.’
‘It’s very different from "Lifting the Lid" and "Heads You Lose".’
‘Doesn’t matter. And don’t forget to put in something that shows you’re vaguely human.’
‘You mean this kind of thing: “I’m currently in Greece with my wife, Penny, two cats and five rescue dogs and working on a fourth novel and a couple of screenplays”.’
‘It’ll have to do, I suppose.'
