Mike Woodhouse

Mike Woodhouse had everything: an engineering business, wine bar, a home, a Range Rover and a boat. Then he caught a group of travellers stealing from his warehouse. A car chase, petrol bombing and court case later, and everything had changed. A marked man, Mike was forced to leave everything behind and left for a fresh start in the Peak District. But his old life was never far behind and when he fell for Charmane, a Romany Gypsy kin to the very people he was hiding from, he knew he wouldn’t be safe for much longer… The Gypsy Code is a true story of secret identity, revenge and forbidden love and is published by Michael Joseph.
