A Sweeping Tale of Mystery and Suspense, steeped in the folklore of the 20th century and played out in 60′s Woodstock, 80′s Soho & on a remote Greek Island – an ideal vacation read:
- Woodstock, 1969: the Festival that defined a decade of peace, love and freedom. The paths of five young English students cross – with devastating consequences. Consequences that eventually reach a climax in an isolated Cretan gorge.
- Seventeen years later: in the ‘golden age’ of capitalism, dramatic events conspire to reunite the surviving members, necessitating a perilous return to a tiny Greek island, where dangerous self-deceptions are at last forced into the glaring sunlight…
Ostensively, it’s an action adventure and murder mystery interwoven with an enduring love story. But dig deeper and darker themes are uncovered, for the novel seeks also to examine who we are and how far we are truly in control of our actions, and even of our lives.
