Charles Stoker, in 1910, is a brilliant young engineer and inventor with a wonderful career before him. Given a unique opportunity by the powerful Collick family to test his inventions and serve his country, he enlists in the Royal Flying Corps. In 1918, Major Stoker returns home to his wife and child, bones and dreams shattered by his experience and refusing any contact with his former life and colleagues.

Only after he is shockingly killed, eight years later, does the distraught Milly Stoker begin to discover the truth about her husband's war.

In 1928, still numbed by the loss of his father, their innocent son Charlie goes to college, where he is easily led into a student's life and a student's sins. When suddenly faced with an agonising crisis, however, like his father he tackles the problem head on... with devastating consequences.

Charles and Charlie is Book One of the Stoker Trilogy.

About the Author

Tod Benjamin's first novel was published in 2017 at the age of 81, after a long and varied life of three careers. Firstly, a five year management course led to five years as a department store manager. That was followed by twenty-five years in the chemical industry, a career that took him all over the world.
Retirement to Bournemouth to play golf and to write created the opportunity for his third career. He began to write seriously. Now, unable to play golf, he devotes most of his time to writing. With an amount of poetry, some short stories and three novels completed, Charles and Charlie, his second novel, is the first of The Stoker Trilogy. Book two, The Tallyman, continues this saga of the first half of the twentieth century through the 1930s, and the third volume, The Soldier, completes the story through World War 2 to 1950.
