Target – Prendergast Uncovered

I had an idea to write something different. Not a James Bond or a Jason Bourne novel. Bradshaw Prendergast is a society dropout, he lives in his own world. He loves parties, girls, and surfing in no particular order. A beach bum says his Dad.

 Carrick Fitzgerald is an aging IRA operative working to his own secret agenda. The two have never met, that’s about to change. Carrick and Brad are on a collision course.



Throw in a plot to execute a horrific terrorist act, a personal vendetta, and of course a pretty girl.



 “An intriguing plot and the characters are as equally intriguing.”

“What a fun story. A great plot, well written, tense, exciting, suspenseful.”

“Nicely paced with strong characters and a great plot.”

Firestrike – Prendergast Uncompromised

The second Brad Prendergast action-filled novel to spill from the pen of suspense writer Ian Welch.

Brad answers an SOS, a tale of intrigue and deception unfolds. What is the CIA Ian-Welch_PU_FIRESTRIKE-Prendergast-Uncompromised--3-_m0doscr9hiding? 
What does Brad Prendergast, a beach bum surfer have in common with ‘Angel’, an aggrieved Islamic woman with revenge on her mind? Jefferson Sainsbury, head of CIA operations has the answer but he is working to his own secretive agenda. Firestrike is a top-secret CIA / Homelands security operation.


“The action never stops.”

“The plot drew me right in and held me through to the end.”
