Exciting new dark, humorous thriller from New Generation Publishing

About the Book:

George Stephenson is approaching his fiftieth birthday, disappointed with life, and only too aware of his many failings. His troubled marriage to Dawn appears to be crumbling, egged on by his successful neighbour Derek. His relationship with his son Paul has become detached. Something has gone horribly wrong in their son’s life that he won’t share with them. And there’s something big that only Paul’s difficult girlfriend Danni knows about - and she’s not telling anyone. On top of all of that, they’re on to him at work. But this life starts to be transformed in what seems like a random series of events. Is it all down to chance and good fortune? Or is someone, or something, from deep in George’s past orchestrating events to turn things around for the Stephenson family?

Excerpt from the book:

“So, when Roberto came along, with his short hair and clean fingernails, and his good manners and job at the bank, compromise didn’t seem so bad. He’d started calling in at the bar with his books to study for exams. They’d got talking. His flat was clean. The fridge was full. Less sexual electricity, but more real electricity. The sort that makes light bulbs work. And he was a good man. Loved his mother.
And he loved her. Rachel, from Hackney, East London, the gentrified bit. Daughter of a lawyer. Stepdaughter of an architect who owned a lot of land. In possession of a good education, apart from English Literature, grade D. With a wayward side that nobody could explain.
But the real problem was, their names were so similar – Rodolfo and Roberto. Both beginning with R, both three syllables, and both ending in O. Not great planning that. You had to be very careful, especially in the morning. She’d got it wrong once, but got away with it. Roberto hadn’t noticed. Or was it Rodolfo?
Where the hell was Rodolfo?
He’d been late a week ago as well. The night when so many things changed. It hadn’t been Rodolfo, or Roberto, or Rupert, that she’d been thinking about for the past week. She’d done nothing about it for too long, but now she was determined.
She stubbed out the half-smoked cigarette, took out her phone, and sent the text message to Danni.”

Really enjoyed this book! Intriguing storyline with hidden depths, fascinating characters and darkly humorous at times. This is the first fiction novel I have read in a long time and it has inspired me to read regularly again. I understand it is the debut novel from the author and I keenly await his next one!
