‘THE SEED OF THE VIOLET TREE: A SCIENCE FICTION MYSTERY’
Excited to be publishing my first novel
A contemporary tale of artificial superintelligence, extravagant minds and cutting edge technology, wrapped in a futuristic mystery, yet grounded in the realism of its characters.
Earth is facing a global tipping point and an existential threat. When Operation Volta is suspected of being the cause of the problem the UK Secret Intelligence Service sees fit to appoint junior analyst, Amber Lake, to lead their investigation. But why? Amber is asking herself the same question, especially after she is teamed up with the hapless Agent Barry Bunn. With her career on the line and everyone against her, Amber is determined to succeed. But as the investigation becomes personal, with wounds and secrets from her own past reopened, can she maintain her objectivity?
Ultimately a raw truth about the very essence of human consciousness has to be faced. Is Amber ready to hear it? Are you?
Some Amazon UK Reviews:
“…a compelling foreground mystery set against a background canvas of escalating technological advancement…”
“…A very readable contemporary novel with plot upon plot to unravel…”
“…I hope there will be a further outing with the intriguing Amber…”
“…The set-up of the obvious existential threat at the beginning seizes the attention and creates a genuine sense of jeopardy. By the time you have read the book, that won’t be the only existential threat on your mind….”
Available in paperback and eBook
A personal note to my readers
I’d love to hear back from you. I’ve found that each person seems to develop an individual relationship with my characters which I find intriguing and fascinating. I would greatly appreciate any feedback on my novel. If you have read it please leave an honest review on Amazon, Lulu or Goodreads. That would be really helpful because the number of reviews received affects the rating and level of promotion on the sites.
As we say in Manchester, ‘Don’t be a stranger our kid.’
