Once a regular ‘squaddie’, sometimes a long-distance lorry driver, Ethan Shaw is now, in his late twenties, refining his innate talents with charcoal stick and paint brush as a (mature) art student. Self-taught, self-sufficient, he is his own man, the ducks of his life in a toughminded row. With one exception.

He was once involved in a fatal car crash. Albeit entirely blameless himself, he has to suffer the replaying of the accident in recurrent documentary nightmares. The victim, a woman, had driven headlong into his lorry when on the wrong side of the road. Nothing he could have done. Why? Suicide? Since she was the wife of a flamboyant, self-aggrandising Thorpe-esque MP a verdict of Accidental Death was always the foregone coroner’s conclusion. Shaw is not so sure. His gut instinct – why else should the dream recur? – is that a more sinister verdict should have been returned.

True to himself, a private, private eye now, he sets out to test his suspicion and begins to find it justified. Murder it most certainly may have been.

Shaw ingeniously uses his artistic skills to probe deeper as the narrative casts an increasingly cold and cynical eye upon policemen and politicians alike as, cutting out all the frills, he goes for the Establishment head on.


About the author:

Anthony Fowles was born in London and educated at the Universities of Oxford and Southern California. He began his artistic career as filmmaker but in time sharpened his focus to concentrate on writing.
