Serge looked out over the Tyrrhenian Sea from the window of the small church. A betrayal in the Parisienne police force had seen his colleagues killed during a drugs bust and him placed on compulsory leave. He had used the time to visit an old friend, a priest of a small Italian village, but instead found himself caught in an investigation of unsolved fires in the seaside village of Canetto.
His investigation would lead him on a journey wherein he would find love, build new friendships, and lead him to uncover a conspiracy which caused him to question his belief about what is morally right and wrong. Forces significantly bigger than he ever could have anticipated could lead to the deaths of hundreds if not thousands of people … and would leave his life forever changed.
After a career of nearly thirty years with one of South Africa’s leading financial institutions, I was medically boarded. While enjoying the break, I noted a news article and a story formed. The story would not go away and a few months later I sat down and started to write.
Attending a book fair, I then decided what if? and the journey to being published began.
When I have time spare (researching the next book) I like to read, trying my hand at the garden (alas me and the plants have yet to develop an understanding).
I am a strong believer that you can never sit still, you always must try new things and move forward and start new journeys.
