This fascinating novel has a multi-tiered appeal. Superficially it is the story of two brothers who follow very different life styles, but this simply acts as the framework on which the author has layered deeper exploration of volatile gender interaction, and an incisive exposé of social and political abuses which have become an integral part of life in the twenty-first century. The author is already well-known for ground-breaking works of non-fiction, and his first venture into fiction has resulted in a compelling and unpredictable plot which strongly reflects the realities of life in dramatic and exciting ways. The ending involves the reader in a dilemma which most will have faced, but many will have shirked.
Peter W King, author, business entrepreneur, and Chairman of the European Livestock Association

About the Author:
