James G. Skinner is a retired world wide telecommunications executive and ex-Honorary British Consul in Spain. For the past twenty years he has lived in Vigo and has observed through the press the constant flow of drugs from Latin America into Europe via the coast of Galicia. Living in Spain has also given him an insight into the fight on terrorism, especially the Basque Separatist movement ETA. He has managed to combine his research of both criminal activities into a unique fictitious novel highlighting the dangers to today's Western society of these two horrors. His first novel, The Goa File, published in 2007 with a second edition in 2009 that dealt with the Dirty War conflict in the Southern Cone of South America received several good reviews from his readers.
