In World City


Dion Lefevre, witnessing his grandmother perform an act of sorcery, experiences a moment in eternity. Miranda Whitlam, chancing to see a filmed death, experiences the end of everything. Both are set on courses that will interweave long afterwards: one searching to recover the immortality he has known, the other struggling to hold back the death she believes inevitable. 

They first meet as children on a remote Caribbean island. Looking for a place where he can live forever, Dion chances on Miranda and experiences, if only briefly, the moment in eternity he has been trying to recover. But Miranda sees in Dion only a threat to the absolute control she believes will hold back death. It is in World City – the vast vacuum of industrial Europe – that their tracks finally converge. Dion’s father takes him there for a better life, but Dion rejects everything his father stands for and grows up a criminal. And it is in World City where Miranda, searching for the power to banish death, is driven to embark on illegal research. She needs children for her experiments and Dion has twelve desperate street kids he needs work for. As their lives collide, Dion and Miranda must experience the disintegration of all they have believed before he can guide her past the finality of death and she can give him back the eternity he has been seeking... 

In World City tells the story of two desperate people, driven together by the oldest dream there is: eternal life.?It will appeal to fans of speculative and literary fiction.

'Boot - the Three-Point Plan' 5-star review on Goodreads 18th April 2017

Jessica Mcbee - This was fantastic. The story drew me in and kept me in the world of these three main characters. I enjoyed the cleverness and the humor in the book immensely. Great read, I could not put it down!

Currently living on the edge of Buckinghamshire, married with three grown-up children, I started writing years ago as a compulsive teenage diarist. I studied biochemistry at university and gained post-graduate experience as a warehouseman and taxi-driver. For the past thirty-years I have worked in heart disease and diabetes research. I have several novels underway plus three completed, of which In World City was the first to be published and Boot the second.
