Peter Robbins is the coauthor of the U.K. bestseller, Left At East Gate, and author of Deliberate Deception (a digital book) and Halt In Woodbridge, all now permanently out of print, as they rightly should be. This decision was made based on the discovery of numerous exaggerations, confabulations, and lies that his Left At East Gate coauthor built into his account. That, regrettably, got by this author. Live and learn.
