Deric Barry's Books of adventure - travel
Welcome to my site.
My latest book is entitled, ' Bid for Freedom.'
Its the story of a young man who travels to Moscow in search of a beautiful wife. He has seen pictures of the Russian girls in a magazine and decides that he will go there to find the love of his life. Unfortunately he gets in a fight with a Russian man in a bar and is arrested. His cousin, Hislop, the overweight private detective is persuaded by the family to travel to Moscow to see if he can help free his young cousin. Kenny is sentenced to a year in prison but he escapes when the prison bus he is in crashes. He involves Hislop in his bid for freedom and they both go on the run, but are soon caught. They are jailed for five years and are determined to escape the harsh conditions.
The story is of their escape, their flight across Russia, their meeting Russian crooks, a tyrannical farmer and Kenny meeting the beautiful girl of his dreams who helps them across the border into Estonia.
‘White Slaves’ is one of the four adventure books I've written. The others being ‘The National Heroes,’ a story of National Servicemen in the Royal Navy during the Suez Crisis, ‘Innocent on the Run,’ the fast moving tale of a young lad who misses his ship in an American port and is stranded, going on the run as an illegal immigrant, and ‘Hislop’s Nigerian Nightmare,’ a story of an overweight, cowardly private detective who is captured for ransom while working in Nigeria for H.M. Revenue and Customs.
All of my books are now available on Amazon Kindle
I have also written a book of Welsh Humour entitled, ‘Mayhem in the Valleys,’ a tale of three Welsh geriatric delinquents who cause havoc in their Valleys’ town.
I've been adding some of my nonsense rhymes to the site. You will find them as individual pages, starting with Evening Serenade, then Ralph and so on.
