"Controversial, repugnant, compelling, inspiring. At 426 pages, this one is for the serious reader, others may find it a bit of a pill. The action speeds up as it approaches its epic climax so that I wondered what was going to hit me next! I would be loath to recommend it to friends because of some of the content but I will happily endorse it generally as a quality product that should not be languishing in obscurity."
Gamelyn Chase was born into a Catholic family but eschewed religion at an early age. He has seen active service with HM Forces, has travelled the world as a merchant navy officer and has sojourned in the Middle East and the Caribbean. Has been known to put the OED to rights! An unreconstructed Wagnerian, he has made the obligatory pilgrimage to Bayreuth. As an aspiring rifle marksman, he makes regular pilgrimages to the hallowed ranges of Bisley. This is his first - and last - novel. He asserts there will be no follow-up; once delivered of a work of the intensity of Redemptor Domus, there's nowhere else for an author to go!
