Shortly upon their arrival in the UK, Ian Allen and Andrew Forrestson find themselves behind bars for charges brought against them by a dead woman. Why are they so reluctant to tell their side of the story?
Bored rigid from attempting to enter nearly four
million characters of binary alien code by hand, James takes Candice on an exploration of the old lead mine tunnels. They’re trapped behind an invisible barrier. In order to bring it down, Sam and Donna have to break James’s complicated musical nanonyte combination lock.
One problem. James told Donna, the code was thirty-five numbers long. His text contained twenty-eight numbers.
Triplet Hall’s doors are reopened for Sir Richard and Marie’s wedding. Lady Triplet’s rival, the ‘black widow’ of The Order – Comtesse Danielle D’Vincent and her daughter would be among the guests. In the wee hours of the morning, Sir Richard gets a mysterious phone call – a cry for help. A few hours before his father’s wedding, Richard learns Chantelle and her daughter are missing and presumed dead. Chantelle’s daughter was ten. Could Richard be her father?
Comtesse D’Vincent is furious! Jack is suspicious. Who’s to blame - Sir Richard, Comtesse D’Vincent, or someone else in The Order?
Donna warned them – they didn’t listen - now Kate and Tom are gone. Where did they go? What happened to them? The answers could turn Sam and Donna’s world upside down, and shake the very foundation of the Triplet Legacy.
About the Author
We started the 'A Vested Interest' series in 2007 and it took over a year before I came up with an ending we were happy with. At 170,000 words A Vested Interest was too long though for a printed book. We cut it heavily but still ended with a 140,000 word book. There was no alternative, we had to split it into a two book series. Doing that, we thought, would allow us to put back some of the content we had cut and expand the second book (Dark Secrets) a little. Well that was the plan. We ended up splitting the second book and making a trilogy by adding 'No Secrets'. The original ending didn't quite fit now so we moved it into a fourth book - Stones, Stars and Solutions. And so it goes on. We are now writing book 10 and 11 of the series. Shelia has written a spin-off 'Blood of the Rainbow' trilogy. Altogether it's 2 million words so far! In terms of time, we've only covered a few months. There is an end in sight but not for another 5,000 years. Maybe I'll get to use my original ending then? About the Authors John and Shelia Chapman are a husband and wife team who met on Internet and crossed the Atlantic to be together. John, an English ex-science and computer teacher contributed the technology and 'nasty' bits while Shelia drew on her medical experience in the USA and produced the romance. The humour? That came from real life.
