This sparks a unique skill in him that will change his life forever. As he slowly develops this new found skill he is able to use it to track down and seek revenge for the murder of his girlfriend. However, the use of this skill does not go unnoticed and soon a Chief Forensic Officer begins investigating only to discover that there is more to John than meets the eye. All the time John is also being secretly observed and evaluated. John joins the Ministry of Defence and becomes embroiled in a major conspiracy which threatens his very life and belief in what is right and wrong, while his own private life suffers even more tragedy when the beautiful Vivian enters his life.

Excellent read with an interesting mixture of fact and fiction. It is a bit of a history ride and covers several conflicts that were real and covers a period of some 20 years starting from the invasion of Cyprus through to the Gulf conflict. Cannot wait for Book 2 to arrive and see how the story develops.

About the author (2012)

David Higgins was born in South London and, like John, did not enjoy a good school education, having to study for his O levels on the seat of a bus while working. He continued his studies and achieved his Internal Audit qualification and then studied for his Masters Degree in Health Economics at City University in London. He enjoys long distance running, particularly marathons, but his current work provides little time for the training runs needed. David now lives in France with his wife Christine, having previously spent four years in Monchengladbach and two and a half years in Saudi Arabia. David still occasionally runs but these are now mainly restricted to his tread mill. Christine and David have a house in Alsace and can often be seen working in their garden.
