Ball of Confusion

Consider the Flipside


Millennium Jones is an American foreign correspondent, embroiled in a melting pot, in London. She abhors those slaughtering innocents for their cause, and reasons unreason with two convicts for her documentary "One Man's Good is Another Man's Evil". As three culturally diverse life-paths intersect, Millie sits on the fence, between a tramp and a terrorist: a sweet Englishman born into bad, and one hell-bent on heaven Iraqi, who's heard it all before. Emotions flow: rage, belly laughs, bewilderment... and then woe, as death's knell tolls, and a Ball of Confusion blows one mind to either: follow the guided path... or choose another route. Mother Nature spins our world. Human nature spins our minds. Ball of Confusion is an original, pacy, punchy, extremely topical novel offering several suspense filled perspectives that will appeal to fans of thought provoking thrillers and dramas.

At last! A new feel genre. Would highly recommend to anyone who enjoys a twisted and twisting read. I will keep a look out for Mr black in future.

Brilliant read, highly recommend

by Helen

Highly recommended! 'Ball of Confusion' is a gripping story and, although a work of fiction, contains an important, potentially world-changing message.... politicians and relentlessly single-minded people would do well to read and take note!

Ball of Confusion

Ian Black's novel, A Ball of Confusion, consider the flipside, tells this reader that Ian Black is a literary force to be reckoned with.

by Martin S

Although not my usual choice of book, this was recommended by a few friends so I thought, why not? After an initial few chapters of not being sure it was my thing, I was totally gripped. It's been a long time since I have been so absorbed by a work of 'fiction'. Mr Black has certainly done his homework and has produced a compelling page turner which I would highly recommend!

by Melissa

A fine debut novel that kept me guessing until the end.

by Del

A fantastic read which will stay with me!

by Jack W

A thought-provoking insight into 9/11 and beyond.

Three diverse lead characters brought equally to life shows remarkable imaginative and writer skills. Whilst there is a need to simplify some of the issues raised and a few of the plot devices are a little clunky the overall narrative is engaging. It's impossible not to care about the three protagonists and to come away without a better understanding of modern culture.
