Ian Irvine was brought up in Scotland, and studied Physics for far too many years, before travelling the world working for high-technology companies. Ian has spent a career helping build the internet and delivering its benefits to users throughout the world,...as well as helping to bring up a family. Ian enjoys writing, painting and composing in his spare time. His particular joy is found in taking scientific fact and creating a thrilling story around it in such a way that readers learn science whilst enjoying the thrill of the ride. It is Ian's hope that everyone who reads an Ian.C.P.Irvine novel will come away learning something interesting that they would never otherwise have found an interest in. Never Science fiction. Always science fact. With a twist. The first of Ian's novels is a Genetic Conspiracy Thriller which explores the world of Stem Cell Research and encourages us all to ask some very searching questions about the advances that science is making, and how much we, or others, should let it affect society. A contemporary adventure, "The Orlando File" takes the reader around the world and back, and creates a unique moral dilemma that the reader cannot help get embroiled in: at the end, the reader must ask themself, what they would do in that situation? "The Orlando File" asks many questions, one in particular being, will advances in technology that extend our lifespans be limited to the rich and only those who can afford it? This is one of the main questions that is asked in the new Justin Timberlake film "In Time". "The Orlando File" does not give an answer to these questions, but encourages the reader to debate the question and provide their own response.

For some, death is not the end. Thanks to modern medicine, they are given a second chance. A second chance to live, and another chance to kill.
Imagine if Tess Gerritsen, Lee Child, Dan Brown, David Baldacci and Karen Rose all got together and decided to write a fact-based, thought provoking medical thriller that educated, challenged and entertained, helping you see the action unfurl in your mind's eye as if it were a film playing just for you: then this could be that book.
The latest novel from Ian C.P. Irvine 'Haunted From Within' is a fast paced contemporary medical thriller, based upon a true medical mystery that scientists and doctors do not yet understand.
Readers should be warned that the novel contains strong language and scenes of sex and violence.
When Peter Nicolson, a reporter with the Edinburgh Evening News, is almost killed by a gang leader out to make his mark, the only way to save his life is through a double kidney transplant. One of the first people in the world to be treated with the new genetic wonder drug 'SP-X4', Peter makes a remarkable recovery. Yet as he recovers, his personality begins to change, and he discovers that he can see visions of unsolved killings committed by a murderer that no one has ever caught. Peter sets out to solve the murders, to track down the killer, and find out the truth behind the visions that he sees.
As time progresses, and as Peter uncovers a trail of death that stretches across the United Kingdom and Europe, the makers of 'SP-X4' watch his actions from afar, anxious that he will uncover the incredible truth behind their new drug treatment, and conspiring to make sure he does not succeed in revealing it to the world.
'Haunted From Within' is also the story of seven separate lives: readers will follow each character as the plot develops and their lives intersect, culminating in a surprise ending that few will predict.
Please beware: this book is based on fact: a medical phenomena that few understand and most are unaware of. At first, it may seem hard to believe. This is after all, just a story, a fast-paced thriller written to entertain you...but it will leave you wondering and talking about the definition of 'life' itself. Enjoy!
Recent review from Amazon.com for the Omnibus edition of Haunted From Within:
"I was unfamiliar with the works of author Ian C.P. Irvine when I bought Haunted from Within, but the description intrigued me. I'm glad I took a chance! This is a fascinating read, satisfying on many levels. There are several story lines to follow, but the main story tells us of Peter, a journalist for a major Edinburgh newspaper. After surviving an accident that was meant to kill him, Peter receives two new kidneys from an unknown donor and a revolutionary new transplant treatment. The treatment is hugely successful. There are, however, side effects that are seemingly inexplicable. These form the basis for the rest of the tale. As the various story lines are tied together, we meet an array of interesting characters. There are heroes and villains. Some characters make you cheer while others make you squirm and check to make sure your doors and windows are locked. And there are a few characters who will break your heart and induce silent tears.
Haunted from Within is a brilliant read, one of those books you try to put down but then convince yourself to read just one more chapter. I highly recommend that you read this book!"
