Ed said: “The paracharity does great work on behalf of wounded and injured paras and I’m proud to be able to support it in my small way.”

The novelist also donated to a military charity with the proceeds of his previous novel ‘A Circling of Vultures’ and will do the same with his newest release.

‘The Lunatic Game,’ a military thriller about an undercover soldier on a mission to find an IRA bomb-maker, has been dedicated to the Royal British Legion, which will receive a donation for each book sold.

The book is available from Fast Print Publishing or in electronic formats from Amazon.
