Golden Promise by Heather Whipp

Golden Promise by Heather Whipp

033015-Golden_Promise_Front_CoverIt is 19th century London and transportation to Australia for petty crimes remains the easy option for the English judiciary. So when young Matt Tobin becomes embroiled in the crimes of his older brother, he is forced to leave London aboard a transport ship and start a new life in the Antipodes.

Unlike his older brother, Matt is ambitious and strives to make a success of his life. Working hard to acquire a range of skills and cast off the shame of his convict background, the boy grows into an industrious employee and settles into life on one of the new colony’s sprawling sheep stations.

Things go well for Matt until he meets Sarah, the spoilt and determined daughter of his employer. Despite his single-minded focus, Matt is unable to ignore her amorous advances and the heat of their desire soon results in the announcement of an unplanned pregnancy, and the wrath of Sarah’s self-righteous father.

The couple marry, and after their attempts to turn virgin bush into a profitable sheep property fail, they set off for a new life in a burgeoning gold mining town. But soon Matt’s past revisits him, with a force so powerful that everything he values, including his marriage, will be tested to the limit.

The Girl in the Spider’s Web

The Girl in the Spider’s Web by David Lagercrantzspidersweb

‘Lagercrantz has constructed an elegant plot around different concepts of intelligence … [his] continuation, while never formulaic, is a cleaner and tighter read than the originals … Without ever becoming pastiche, the book is a respectful and affectionate homage to the originals’ Mark Lawson, Guardian.

‘As I read Lagercrantz’s The Girl in the Spider’s Web, I found that I kept forgetting for several pages at a time that I wasn’t reading genuine Larsson … One devours Larsson’s books for the plots, the action, the anger, and most of all for Lisbeth Salander … Lagercrantz has caught her superbly, and expertly spun the sort of melodramatic yarn in which she can thrive’ Jake Kerridge, Daily Telegraph.

‘Fans of Stieg Larsson’s captivating odd couple of modern detective fiction – the genius punk hacker Lisbeth Salander and her sometime partner, the crusading investigative journalist Mikael Blomkvist – will not be disappointed … Salander and Blomkvist have survived the authorship transition intact and are just as compelling as ever’ Michiko Kakutani, New York Times.

‘Rest easy, Lisbeth Salander fans – our punk hacker heroine is in good hands … Swedish crime novelist David Lagercrantz takes the reins with prowess, not only mimicking Larsson’s shamelessly pulpy prose, but admirably expanding the deliciously depraved world of the novels’ Patrick Ryan, USA Today.

Book – The God Particle Series

Book - The God Particle Series

book 1-3A SIMPLE TALE OF SUBATOMIC PARTICLE METAPHYSICS

In the summer of 2008, a long-awaited scientific experiment was started at the CERN particle accelerator near Geneva. The experiment involved the high-speed collision of subatomic particles and the objective was to prove the existence of the Higgs boson, more commonly known as ‘The God Particle’.To the great disappointment of the worldwide scientific community and the relief of many people who were concerned that this experiment might trigger a reaction that would destroy our planet, a technical hitch caused the experiment to be abandoned at the crucial moment.

Book is the tale of a humorous journey that began in the chaos of that failed experiment. God Particles; both elusive and mysterious, contain properties we are only on the brink of understanding. So their ability to evolve into intelligent beings and dramatically affect our life on this planet should come as no surprise. That’s not quite how the humans in this story see it!

Includes Books 1 to 3.
