Introducing A Great and Exciting Trilogy, Destined for the Film Sectors Titled “The Charles Langham Series”.


Gary Paul Stephenson


What can I say about our Author, other than what a privilege it was for us to work with him.  Ever patient, considerate and always optimistic in the challenges we set before him, he never uttered one complaint or that anything was too fiddly or too much to bother with.  Gary and his lovely wife deserve the best in life that is on offer, and hopefully we can be instrumental in seeing Gary’s  books to films.  The subject matter on which the books in the Charles Langham series and stories are based embraces the concerns we are all much familiar with these days, and well handled by the author and his appealing style of writing makes for thrilling and exciting well moving stories which promises to provoke every discerning reader.   The topics the Author tries to bring to discerning readership are so much on our world agenda these days, and the urgent times in which we must live  on this delicate and diverse planet of ours.

Born in London, England to a New Zealand father and English mother, Gary thoroughly enjoyed weekends away on his father’s boat on the river Thames and South of France.  He moved out of London, preferring the peace and quiet and openness of the countryside.  Owning a border collie called Abigail ensured many long family walks no matter what the fickle English weather decided to do. Finding Elderflower trees started a love of winemaking and plums and Blackberries resulted in homemade jams.  A move north to Cumbria and the Lake District saw the family exploring the hills, lakes and coastal walks.  A move back south to Cheshire saw the west coast being explored.  A holiday to see the land where his father was born resulted in a move to New Zealand where favourite pastimes include wine making, gardening, propagating shrubs, growing vegetables and looking after two mischievous Dutch house rabbits.

Before becoming a full time author, Gary spent his professional career in supply chain management rising through the ranks of major international electronics companies. The profession saw him travelling extensively throughout Europe, Mexico, America and the Far East where he still has many good friend. Taking a U.K based roll gave him the time to see his children grow up and finally enjoy travelling for pleasure. 

With the devastating diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis, Gary took to writing as a way of keeping his mind active. All the books are based on an environmental and conservation theme, a subject close to his heart. The research required for each book broadens the mind and the books take on a life of their own. Writing and Multiple Sclerosis are a good match. When cognitive fatigue sets in, with writing, you can stop and rest but allow your imagination to carry on.  

Presently, Gary is working on the screenplay adaptation of the first book in The Charles Langham Series – The Pacific Affair and planning the third book in the series – The Caribbean Affair.

Gary is married with 3 children and a grandson. Two moved to New Zealand and one remains in England.

Presenting The first book in the Charles Langham Series by New Zealand Author, Gary Paul Stephenson.

Charles Langham has Multiple Sclerosis, faces opposition, death threats and even hit squads, as the vested interests of political institutions and multinational organisations combine to stop Langham and his team righting the wrongs that we all wish we could fix.

Unbeknownst to Langham, a bigger challenge is looming from the worlds troubled past of the 1940’s. Following a presentation to the UN, he demands action from world leaders or he will take action. Now he will have to force their hand. Langham orders his wife’s evacuation from their Amazon reforestation project where she has been attacked.

The United States President takes offence at what he sees as Langham’s threat against his country and sends an aircraft carrier to track him down. After the disabling of the aircraft carrier, the President orders his private Presidential force, led by Thomas to assassinate Langham, who they believe to be aboard his Super Yacht.

A member of Langham’s team, uncovers underwater anomalies,locating two underwater mining rigs off the Californian coast that they link to the President’s closest aides who thought they were helping build the Presidents nuclear arsenal following unilateral disarmament, but unbeknownst to them they are being used by an ex-Nazi, Gustav Axmann, bent on the nuclear destruction of the United States and the rise of the Fourth Reich using money from drug cartel.

Editorial Reviews


Very thought provoking, covering a lot of what we should be concerned about today in a very good story. T. Mathews

From the Author

This is a book of fiction but the facts within it are true which makes it all the more concerning. The more research I did the more determined I was to ensure they were shared in the book. I am grateful for all the the help and assistance provided by my wife Davina.

Paul is dead, and he left a message for his wife, Martina, on what led to his demise. Murder by Truth by Gary Paul Stephenson is a thriller about Paul’s letters to his wife. Conveyed by his trusted lawyer, Mr. Seifert, Martina gets these letters containing the truth of her late husband’s secret mission and his expected death. Paul, a New Zealander, was an only child after his mother lost his junior brother after birth. He was spoiled and received the best of everything. Surprisingly, without the consent of his parents, Paul joined the Army. He trained in the Special Air Services and Mossad. His obtained skill sets, abilities, and knowledge made him fit for the job.

Martina learns various things from these letters, from Paul’s consistent duo, Jenkin and Arthur, to how the mission led to Paul meeting her, the love of his life. The unfolding secrets will puzzle readers. One would wonder why Paul’s killers killed him as soon as mentioned in his first letter. The anonymity of the individuals that assigned him on the mission will also steer questions. What is Martina’s reaction after reading Paul’s letters? What happens after she finds out the truth?
