His 36 or so books, which indicate his wide concerns, include 13 ghost-written for others, such as Rita Nightingale (imprisoned for drug-smuggling in Thailand), Charles Fraser-Smith (the original ‘Q’ of the James Bond movies), Harry Bagnell (vicar of Port Stanley during the Argentine invasion), Bishop Lazlo Tokes of Romania (instigator of the 1989 revolution), Ram Gidoomal (entrepreneur, academic and politician), and Nigel Goodwin (pioneer in evangelical involvement in the arts and media).
