James Barrington, James Becker, Max Adams BOOKS

James Barrington writes under so many names he could be mistaken for having a  multiple personality disorder! He has primarily a technical and military background, having spent over twenty years in the Royal Navy’s Fleet Air Arm, including active service in the Falklands War on board the aircraft carrier HMS Illustrious.
                                  

 Under the name James Barrington he has a total of four  books: Overkill, Timebomb, Foxbat, Pandemic and Payback (to be published in June).

All books are by  Macmillan. He also ghost-wrote the non-fiction book Joint Force Harrier (Penguin) with Commander Ade Orchard, Royal Navy.







Barrington served at Headquarters Military Air Traffic Operations in London which required continual access to, and work on, a variety of projects classified above ‘Secret’, including United Kingdom preparations for war and transition to war (the ‘War Book’), and he became very familiar with techniques for intelligence gathering, dissemination and related subjects.
















His worked at HQ MATO also included whole-country military exercise planning, execution and supervision, as well as involvement in international exercises as both participant and planner, and he regularly attended NATO and other international meetings and briefings as a United Kingdom representative.

During his career he was involved in numerous covert operations, the details of many of which are still classified. These included RAF Nimrod (anti-submarine warfare) operations; intelligence-gathering and insertion of personnel in the Yemen; an operation in the Eire/Northern Ireland border area; testing of specialised and classified equipment at sea; Russian aircraft intercept operations at front-line radar units; IED (Improvised Explosive Device) investigation, aircraft accident and incident investigation, and whole-country and local contingency planning in the event of major terrorist attacks. It will be appreciated that no further details of any of the above can be supplied, as he is still bound by the Official Secrets Act.

He has a prodigious knowledge of maritime operations, aviation and aerial combat, military tactics and procedures, and modern weaponry, and is well-versed in a wide variety of other related subjects. He is an accomplished combat pistol shot, taking part in regular ‘hostage rescue’ competitions using Browning, Glock, Smith & Wesson and Colt full-bore (9mm and larger calibre) weapons.

  James Becker writes for Transworld: The First Apostle and The Moses Stone, with The Messiah Secret to be published in July this year.

Max Adams also writes for Macmillan with the book: To do or die. This is the first in this series.














James Barrington aka James Becker aka Max Adams have all one thing in common (apart from the obvious) he writes excellent books!
