The House That Dave Built: The Story Of The 'Average Joe' Who Built His Own House And The Chaos That Followed

The Grand Designs of building your own home meets a comedy of errors, the world’s greatest credit crunch, police, explosions and more in this true but uplifting story of an ‘average Joe’ who tries to build his own home.

5 Stars from Slater’s Club – “A Funny and Riveting story of determination!”

Everyone wants to build own home with thoughts of winter wood fires, lounging in luxury, hosting summer barbecues for friends etc.. The joys of house building can inspire but enthusiasm without experience is a recipe for chaos. Dave got anything and everything done… eventually. But using a bulldozer to crash your way through life with a determination reserved only for the SAS is not always a recipe for success. Unless of course, you’re in the SAS.

This is his story; Dave is an ‘average Joe’ without the typical Grand Design TV show budget or contestant with the casual £500k to throw around. Nor the smug entrepreneur with mere millions lying in the bank saved for a pet building project. Dave was influenced by many, many television shows and the media to pick up a hammer and build the ‘perfect’ home.

This is a story of an ordinary man in the street, relentlessly marching towards his own financial Armageddon and with a lot to learn against the back drop of the world’s biggest credit crunch and those who wanted to literally crush his dream house. This is the inspiring and entertaining story of how Dave’s life got turned upside down in the pursuit of building the ‘dream family home’.

A Thoroughly Modern Treasure Hunt

“There comes a time in every rightly-constructed boy’s life when he has a raging desire to go and dig somewhere…” From ‘The Adventures of Tom Sawyer’ by Mark Twain, 1876.

In 1945, Germany and its allies were surrendering. Gold and anything of value was being looted on an unprecedented scale. Most loot would be lost forever but Dave had a wartime diary with clues of where to look. He’d start his own search and meet some colourful characters, experience a number of unusual accidents and incidents and see some amazing cities and unravel their history on the way.

This is a true story of adventure, a test of a strong relationship, testimony to great friends, and a trial of the human spirit made in a very unusual quest. This is an account to make you smile, as you join a ride through an overlooked chapter of World War Two and the modern day quests across four countries to retrace steps from the past.

“You can read this book for light entertainment, a good mystery or even as the starting point for your own treasure hunting escapades. It’s the adventure of an ‘average guy’s’ need for adventure in a modern, busy world.” Kathryn Harris, book lover and critic.

“5 stars, an entertaining and lively story of chasing lost wartime treasure and history!” Slater’s Club 2019.

A Dishonest Code

Things go badly wrong when a promising university student lands the perfect job with an ancient and wealthy but murderous society.

Brin is a young IT expert with greed and a need for adventure on his mind. He works by day in London and travels the glamourous cities of the world but, by night, he’s breaking into the finances of some of the world’s largest companies. When his illusive uncle takes him under his wing he joins a group intent on abusing his hacking skills in exchange for an easy route to wealth and power.

Mowbray embraces the ultimate temptation between living the high life on ill-gotten gains and the risks of life beyond the law and murder. At what point do you sell your soul to become spectacularly rich? When do you stop gambling with your life? Death follows a centuries old, dark route to power as companies are destroyed, IT systems plundered, colleagues murdered, and big parties flourish amidst the supercars and yachts bought by the super wealthy.

Based upon seven currently unsolved true-life murders and the deeds of two infamous computer fraudsters ‘A Dishonest Code’ charts the rise of a nobody to a millionaire somebody.

A Dishonest Code is inspired and based upon seven, currently, unsolved murders and the deeds of two infamous computer fraudsters; the suspicious death of Danny Casolaro, an unsolved conspiracy mystery, the demise of Claudia Tjelt, the ‘Casie Nicole’ unsolved snapper boat mystery of Billy Neesmith, Keith Wilkes, Franklin Brantley, and Panama’s unsolved ‘Lost Girls’ mystery; Lisanne Froon and Kris Kremers, and ‘The Homeless Hacker’ Ameri Gus.

“’A Dishonest Code’ is a stunning story of a hacker manipulated through temptation and tradition by a sinister organisation.” Kathryn Harris, literary critic and blogger, 2020.

Gone One Night

‘Gone One Night’ is the story of a nobody turned millionaire somebody very quickly through the murky world of big business and online security flaws. The story is based upon three currently unsolved murders and the latest security issues that made one man seriously wealthy within a very short period of time.

From Aston Martins to yachts and from Zermatt, Switzerland to London, England to Barcelona, Spain and beyond, the work for a centuries old foundation continues until the spectre of death, intrigue and corruption catch up. Gone One Night is the story of how aspirations of power and wealth can be ruined by greed and murder, and how one man tried to take it all and disappear.

“Wolf Rambo has all the ingredients to write novels just as gripping as his real work in cyber security. Rambo’s ability to illustrate a crime from the first person perspective and the temptation to use one’s skills for evil is compelling.’ Steve Johnson, blogger and security expert 2019.

‘Superbly written and carries you along at speed while illustrating a whole new world of cyber-crime and mystery to the audience. Clearly and factually explains some of the wilder stories hitting our headlines in the real world at the moment!’ Kathryn Harris, Creative Editor, Designer & Reporter, 2020.

‘Good crimes rarely get noticed and the idea of a centuries old organisation using its wealth to recruit and train the best brains into destroying lives and competitors felt all too real! Great work!’ Ryan Hoskings, Cyber Security Director, ‘at one of the big six banks’, England.

Coming Soon! 'A Frightening World.'

If it’s creepy but fascinating, and in more than three different sources it’s in! ‘A Frightening World’ is a compilation of over seventy real life mysteries.  Mysteries from serial killers to the true origins of Vampires to ghosts of battlefields or the disappearance of Nazi gold and pirate treasure to demonology and reincarnations of those long deceased get a thorough retelling.

This won’t be a flight of fancy with obviously fake stories or the sorts of tales that unicorns reside within; these will be those stories you can tell around a camp fire or pub tables that take your mind to another level of believe-ability; the sorts of things that make you puzzle long after you’ve read them or can’t help yourself reading just one more page, or make you sleep with a lamp on just in case…

Everything from famously unsolved or gruesome murders to ghosts ships such as the Baychimo or Marie/Mary Celeste are recounted along with possible explanations. Serial killers to unexplained flying objects and ghost stories are retold along with experts’ possible explanations.  Tales of long hidden ancient orders to lost cosmonauts and devil possessed nuns come in for a vivid story telling together with a scrutiny at the end of each chapter as we attempt to not only tell a great story but provide some rationale, pose you a question or give a reason for some of the most insanely puzzling mysteries the planet has to offer.

Unsolved huge gold heists and lost caves of Biblical treasure hordes are brought to life in fascinating detail and images along side a few more crazy or unexpected mysteries from around the world.

You don’t need to be a believer and for skeptics and story tellers alike there’s something to please everyone. Not suitable for under 15s but frightening at times, puzzling and intriguing for the rest of us…
