About this product
- DescriptionWhen Brian 'Brack' Fabian's teenage neighbour Carla goes missing, he is thrown together with her younger sister Skye. A friendship and romance quickly develops, and soon they are investigating Carla's disappearance together. Gradually they start to put together the pieces of a much larger, wider and older mystery. Encompassing Chinese organised crime, ancient Chinese history and mysticism, the Arthur legend and the reign of Elizabeth I, Brack and Skye must go about their everyday teenage lives whilst trying to deal with the effects of abduction and murder, searching for some lost treasure along the way which will set them up for life. Meanwhile Carla wakes up with memory of her former life, a blank slate on which her captors can write a new person into existence. Or at least try to...
- Author BiographyThe author Barry McArthur has written three novels, however 'For Life is Walking Shadow' is the first to be submitted for publication. I would hope the story has appeal to a wide section of the population. Perhaps younger readers may find the fast moving exploits of the protagonists, the personal relationships, together with their familiar and exotic experiences, to be refreshingly engaging. As a comparison to previously published works and authors, it is difficult to say. Without compromising the originality of the book some might find within the pages shades of Dan Brown's 'da Vinci Code', or perhaps in parts 'Fifty Shades of Gray'. Barry McArthur is a retired primary school teacher, and discovered a talent as a storyteller whilst engaged in that profession. He adds a collection of short stories to the novels he has written. Barry lives in Wangaratta NE Victoria, with his wife Mary, and has a son Paul, also a teacher as is his wife Melanie. They have two beautiful children Nina and Luis.
