Almost Perfect is a captivating thriller involving the Inquisition, the Cathars of 12th Century France, and modern-day financial greed in the city of London.
If you liked The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown, Labyrinth by Kate Mosse, and thrillers by Robert Ludlum, then get ready for a fast paced thriller set in 12th Century France with mysterious ties to the heart of today’s London financial centre.
Matt Brennan, a brilliant young investment banker in the City of London, is celebrating his greatest deal yet: orchestrating a mega-merger that will transform the electronics industry. He is rich and successful beyond his wildest hopes. But his personal life is a mess. Fed up with his constant work, his wife is about to walk out on him. And he is plagued by mysterious dreams …of the Inquisition.
When Matt travels to Carcassonne in Southern France to buy a house he hopes will put his marriage and his life back together, he is plunged into the mysteries of the Cathar Sect, a fanatical branch of mediaeval Catholicism also known as the ‘the Perfects’.
As he unlocks their secrets, his life is at stake. And Matt Brennan is about to discover that no man, and no religion, is ever perfect.
‘Almost Perfect’ is an enthralling thriller that straddles the centuries with consummate skill. It combines the plotting of Dan Brown, with the action of Steve Berry, and historical knowledge of Kate Mosse, and the story-telling of Lee Child.
- ‘A knock-out book. John Childress is at the top of his game.” – Matt Lynn, author of the best-selling Death Force thrillers.
- “A brilliant, thrilling combination of the ancient and modern.” – Tom Kasey, best-selling author of Trade Off.
When Matt Richards sees bodies strewn across the US capital, he realises that there are some professions from which a man can never quit. It is a Game Changer.
And so begins a deadly game of cat and mouse against the most ruthless terrorists in the world. One man’s reputation will be decided, and a Presidency will be put to the test as the world stands on the brink of global chaos.
Because when the Game changes, you either change with it…or you die.
From the terror camps of Beirut and the Lebanon, to the politics of the Middle East and Washington, Game Changer is a brilliant action thriller, combining the meticulous research of Frederick Forsyth, the military and intelligence know-how of Tom Clancy, the global reach of Robert Ludlum and the pulsating story-telling of Lee Child.
