About the Author

Fred Nath is a full time Neurosurgeon. Fred was born in Sweden and brought up in London and has worked in Liverpool, Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow in his training (a long, long time ago). He lives in the northeast of England with his teenage daughter, his three sons having grown up and flown the coop. In the last twenty-six years, he has run twenty-five Great North Run half-marathons, trekked Island Peak, to 6000m in Nepal, crossed the highest mountain pass in the world (also in Nepal) [which you can see on You-tube],done a 12,000ft tandem parachute jump and began writing, like John Buchan, "because he ran out of penny-novels to read and felt he should write his own." Fred loves a good story, which is why he writes.
To date, he has written five French resistance thrillers, three books in the Galdir series and the first instalment of a four book series 'Amulet' has recently appeared in print - all published by Fingerpress publishers.
How does he find time to write? Get up a bit earlier and go to bed a bit later - sleep makes you unproductive!
He also loves the Dordogne, French wine and a good family getogether! You can reach him on: or email

This book, the promise, treads water before a story begins to emerge. This is a story of Jean searching for his sister who, along with her infant daughter, has been betrayed by her German husband for being distantly related to somebody of Jewish religion. This runs parallel with the story of he and his sister's lives before the war begun. It alternates without confusion. Our narrator Jean seems like an idiot and behaves like a boy on occasion. I think the psychology of this character is fascinating, as are the emotions that he feels which drive him to do the deeds that he does. It reads very relaxed, like the calm before the storm. One criticism I have is the leap of narrative at page 150. It caused me to wonder if I had missed some pages, but unfortunately this frequently happens towards the end of the book. Overall highly recommended for its characters and quick pace.
