A BRITISH expat has sealed a deal with a London publisher for three action thrillers – one of which is based on his horrific experiences in a foreign jail.
Benalmadena-based Joseph Dickerson, 58, was beaten almost unconscious by police and spent seven months banged up after a venture capital deal turned sour.
He was only released after the British government intervened.
Now he has written Every day’s a Monday, set on the fictitious island of ‘Gilipollas’ – meaning ‘jerk’ in English.
“It is my way of getting my own back,” Dickerson explains.
All three book covers will be designed by Benalmadena artist Nancy Holt.
Dickerson is set to appear on Talk Radio Europe on December 8 to talk about the books.
