The Fast Forward
by Derek Keen

“I’ve not seen any of our Brokehill rats using the lawn since their great victory. And that was more than four months ago...”

Set in both the modern day and 1739, The Fast Forward revisits Brokehill Manor, where freedom is looking decidedly lopsided for the rats as summer unfolds. All the regular activity is hanging in a state of suspended animation – that is, until two mysterious strangers arrive...

Meanwhile, certain other changes are taking place in the house above. The reconciliation of father and daughter anticipates an August wedding, while parts of the house undergo a long-awaited refurbishment. But yet another newcomer gives rise to unwarranted distractions with ideas of his own. Aided by loyal cats and an injured dog, the rats earnestly seek to overthrow this new intrusion.

With flashbacks to the tragic lives of two lovers from Georgian England and the Caribbean, challenges and battles ensue. Only courage and confidence will tell their fate. The sequel to The Last Defender, The Fast Forward will appeal to readers whose interest lie in history and sport, with added drama from both thrown in.
