Alpha Minor - a Harriet Walsh novel

Trainee Harriet Walsh tackles her second major case.



The Peace Force has a new recruit, and she's driving everyone crazy. From disobeying orders to handling unauthorised cases, nothing is off-limits.
Worse, Harriet Walsh is forced to team up with the newbie, because the recruit's shady past has just caught up with her.
Meanwhile, a dignitary wants to complain about rogue officers working out of the station. She insists on meeting the station's commanding officer ... and they don't have one.
All up, it's another typical day in the Peace Force!

FAQ (Updated May 2018)

Sounds cool, when will Alpha Minor be released?
It's out now!

Can't you just write more Hal Spacejock?
I've only just finished Hal Spacejock 8: Double Trouble, and I'd like to try something else for a bit.

Will Hal Spacejock and Clunk appear in this novel?
Events take place two years before Harriet meets Hal Spacejock for the first time, so no.
