Overview

Utter, utter madness is at the root of this very exciting and totally out of the ordinary tale of a British aristocrat, super hero and gentleman called, Erskine Quint, Esquire or Sir (not yet).

Erskine manoeuvres between time-zones leaving you guessing and imagining from what era and which historical period he actually exists in, to no avail. You will be left in a timeless zone, bouncing backwards and forwards between historical events in a "Pythonist bubble" and automatically joins in the fun of "going with the flow"!

The main character, Erskine Quint, was born with blood running through his veins that gives him extra-dimensional strength, intelligence, guile and the most powerful will to defeat all obstacles in his way whilst solving and discovering the final frontier that has driven the human race over millions of years; " The Holy Grail of Mankind".

Nothing will stop him reaching this goal although evil is constantly attempting to thwart him all the way through the novel. He is determined to defeat it and divulge what no man or woman has ever attempted or succeeded to do before.

Albeit, there is a backbone of "truth" running through the story with several twists in it's tails (?). But only after you have followed Erskine and his Himalayan manservant, Kimjabi, all over the planet are the "twists" revealed, and they shock; offering no room for faint hearts or eventual redemption.

Good and evil accompany us through our lives, hand in hand, and this outrageous novel, although completely insane, offers the reader a twist at the finale that only those of a strong disposition and open-mind can possibly take, enjoy or comprehend.

Erskine loves gorgeous, erotic, very sexy women. He is a marathon lover and has several erotic adventures along his majestic journey; the novel is not advisable for children to read.

The author has every intention of entertaining the reader to the maximum and allows himself the right to introduce even more insanity when required, but the insanity mostly relates and always entertains so that the story is never far away.

Periodically leaving the backbone of the novel and catapulting into tangents far-away, but paradoxically, oh so close. Insane, black holes waiting to confuse, entertain and amuse.

Erskine, although being an Aristocrat and enjoying the most luxurious, upper class things the planet has to offer always remains aware of the importance of his mission to mankind in general, therefore you can always relate to him, or maybe even get to like him.

You will also enjoy his memorable, sometimes deadly confrontations and conflicts with evil, which snowball rapidly during the journeys he undertakes.

Several dark, sad, funny, sexy, oddball characters join Erskine, but the greatest surprise is towards the end where two colossal, universal characters join the adventure physically and eventually determine Erskine's destiny.

This adventure is for the open-minded, slightly eccentric (or totally mad) adult reader, It offers no boundaries, solutions or answers, but will certainly entertain, maybe provoke and possibly, you will never be the same again after reading it.

Erskine is a survivor, but his ultimate confrontation with powers that can destroy or redeem anything on the planet is something that no other being has ever survived and if he does survive the ordeal (?) a sequel is already underway.
