Mirror Wars: Double Jeopardy – Synopsis
A failed military experiment. A global conspiracy spanning decades. Two worlds colliding.
12th September 1932 a failed military experiment opens the doorway to a parallel world and an ancient empire with ties to our world.
90 years later Detective Inspector Dave Barnes is summoned to investigate a murder in the quiet English village of Langley Park. Along with his friend and colleague, Detective Sergeant Andrew Jenkins, they begin an investigation which uncovers some starting facts. Inspector Barnes is soon joined by Professor Claire Tulley, a history professor who has a personal stake in the investigation.
Along with Constable Wendy Cooper, they begin to uncover evidence of corruption going not only all the way up to higher echelons of the British Government, but evidence of a global conspiracy spanning decades.
They are soon embroiled in a fight for not only their own survival, but also for the fate of the world against an enemy that is oddly familiar.
As two worlds collide, an ancient inhuman force waits in the shadows…
Whoever wins… humanity loses!
About The Author
Born in Hartlepool in 1970. I have lived in Langley Park, Durham, England up until 2006, where I moved to Northern Ireland married my wife, Monica in 2007 (still very much happily married).
I love reading fantasy, science fiction, action & adventure and thrillers. Favourite authors are Stephen King, James Herbert, Clive Cussler, Dean Koontz, Audrey Niffenegger and Neil Gaiman. I am a big Marvel Comics fan and enjoy watching movies. Favourite tv shows are Blake’s 7, Babylon 5 and Star Trek.
In April 2020 my love of fantasy and science fiction inspired me to write my first book – Mirror Wars: Double Jeopardy – which contains nods to some of my favourite authors, films and TV shows that have ignited my imagination over the years. I also used my “experiences” of being a twin to help me write about evil doppelgangers!
Finished my first novel this year and I am already planning to write my next book, the second part to Mirror Wars.
