Announcing CHANGER

books & kestrel 2 min read

Today is my birthday, and I’m extremely excited to announce that my novel CHANGER will be available later this month!

It’ll be on the Amazon Kindle and Apple iBooks stores (and you’ll also be able to buy the book directly, if you’d like to get an ePub file for your device). Paperback copies will be available a little later.

Here’s the cover! Readers with visual impairments can also read a description of the cover artwork.

CHANGER cover art

CHANGER is an adventure/thriller, with a weird-science twist. It’s about 95,000 words long (which is approximately one Hobbit, since you ask), and it’s the beginning of a series. Here’s some blurb:

DESTINY CAN BE CHANGED.

Jutland, Denmark: a billionaire industrialist seizes control of a top-secret project that the European Defence Agency calls Destiny, manipulating it for his own ends.

Edinburgh, Scotland: physicist Neil Aldridge’s life is saved by an elite EU special forces team, codenamed KESTREL, drawing him into a race against time to prevent a disaster that will claim millions of lives.

As the chase leads to London, Amsterdam and beyond, Aldridge and his allies must battle a ruthless adversary: a trained killer with an unnatural ability, who seeks to hasten the cataclysm.

With time running out, Aldridge discovers that he and his enemy share an astonishing secret, which may be the key to salvation — or cause death on an unprecedented scale…

I’m grateful to Stuart Bache at Books Covered for the cover artwork. It’s what truly made the book real for me, and I’m delighted with it. I’m in good company with John le Carré and Stephen King as clients of his – cheers, Stuart!
