Four unlikely and reluctant heroes band to gather to rescue London from an ancient evil that is hell-bent on revenge. Theodore Dusty, awkward, portly, with a love for chocolate eclairs; Ali Kumar, dependable but vulnerable; John Bray, aggressively alpha-male with a secret that even he doesn’t know about; Frances Honeysuckle, sweet and innocent, but surprisingly capable. What really happened to the lions of Trafalgar Square? What is going on at Alexandra Palace? Is the water safe to drink? A rip-roaring adventure set in a world where Douglas Adams (Hitchhikers guide) meets Dan Brown (the Da Vinci code) and peril lies behind every corner.
Here are some early reviews:
“I haven't enjoyed this kind of writing since Douglas Adams. For anyone who enjoyed the wit and creativity of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, then Butterflies over Whitehall will not disappoint as it draws us through a riveting plot while presents some serious cultural issues - all warmly presented with Alex's customary, perceptive wit.”
“A spellbinding and darkly humorous thriller set in a dystopian future that is closer than we think. Stays with you long after the final chapter. A terrific read.”
“Have laughed out loud at times. It's making me wonder how much treasure you have tucked away in the inner vaults of your imagination that needs to be unearthed. Some of this is really cleverly expressed. You know how an expert violinist can make a few strings sing? You can do the same with the English language. I hope this book marks a beginning...and I've only got to page 12!”
