Book Description HTML

The third story in the Sean Linehan series, set in the year 2021. Linehan brings over his dead boss to Hong Kong to open Asia’s finest sports venue, the SplattaDome. Captivated by the alluring Hypatia, Sean gets kidnapped by Maoist guerrillas and help prisoner in a safe house. His government will not pay a ransom. Can he stay alive long enough to fulfil his quest to give up the perks of his job – money, girls and dodgy antiques - and become good? Or even long enough to see Hypatia again? Will his policeman friend, Wayne, rescue him? Dark humour and subtle satire enrich this short tale of our all-too-near future.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Bryan Murphy

I am a man of Kent, though I come from a long line of Irish peasants. I have worked as a fruit-picker, kitchen hand, road-sweeper, bar-tender, wages clerk, teacher of English as a foreign language, translator and copy-editor. I recently retired from a job within the United Nations system, and now concentrate on my own words, as a writer and an actor. My home is Italy.
