All Madeleine wanted at the start of the day was a cold glass of lemonade. She didn't expect to end the day investigating a crime that wasn't and questioning the existence of ancient Egyptian gods.
A chance meeting in a café in Venice turns from normal to weird in the blink of an eye. A young woman is dragged from her comfortable existence into a dangerous world of international intrigue in the company of a unique and mysterious man. Both must use all of the considerable talents and abilities in their possession against a ruthless adversary with a global agenda and a power that has not been seen on earth for five thousand years.

About the Author
I now live on the Kapiti Coast of the North Island of beautiful New Zealand but I have lived and worked in Australia, England, Germany and Switzerland.
I grew up in the small village of Paekakariki (try saying that if you're not a kiwi), only 10km from where I now live, graduated with degrees in Psychology and Education from Victoria University of Wellington, and work as a software engineer when I'm not writing.
I share my home with two dogs (Harry and Jacko) and three guitars (not named). I’ve travelled throughout the world for extensive periods of time and I’ve sailed the Atlantic from England to Brazil in my 41-foot ketch ‘Adastra’.
I have written poems (that rhyme!), short fiction in diverse genres (westerns, science fiction, war, crime, adventure) and also children’s stories and a play (which has been performed :-) ).
My first novel LINDISFARNE: Fury of the Northmen was published in 2018.
