Martin Crosbie

Author Martin Crosbieabout this book: When one of the masters at his Scottish primary school asks him if he's been drinking and his reply is "Hardly", Gerald McDougall is rechristened. Routinely bullied by the other pupils and physically abused by his parents Hardly's only dream is to break out and be free. When he enlists in the army at sixteen the recruiter decides his shorter stature would be useful for a specific duty. Deployed to Northern Ireland during the time of "The Troubles" Hardly becomes indispensable as an information gatherer. When he's called back for one final mission with his partner Walter he quickly realizes that the tables have turned and he's the one being watched.

Hardly became a character who couldn't be ignored. After the success of the first novel (My Temporary Life), I had numerous requests from readers to continue Hardly's adventures. This story took on a life of its own. The assignments Hardly was given as a loft-sitter were actual missions that soldiers undertook during that time. I was gratified to receive letters from several soldiers after the book was published telling me that the version I wrote about in the book was the way it felt to them when they were stationed there.
