THE BOILER PLOT is about how the media’s ‘next big thing’ is really a scam that abuses the presumed anonymity of the internet.
Alex Sanderson is young, isolated, and hungry for success in a business dominated by men. She’s an American technology PR agent who came all the way to London to work with the best media in the world, when she’s handpicked to hype Avadar, a ‘Google killer,’ in the press.

The hype machine is cranking. Alex starts getting in with powerful figures in Westminster. But some things about Avadar don’t add up. It’s creepy—a human-like hologram that lives with you—and its creators are swimming in cash; hardly a typical start-up. Noah Stein, wily, celebrated investigative journalist, starts asking questions: where do they get their funding? Why the Middle Eastern HQ?

The world’s economy crashes down on Canary Wharf, and Alex’s relationships crash along with it. But Noah may be a saviour. They travel to Abu Dhabi, risking their safety to learn what’s been lost in the quest for the latest news scoops, and Alex tries to extricate herself from a trap she, in part, has laid.

THE BOILER PLOT is a suspense novel about a society weakened by its dependence on the internet, and a media blinded by its hunger for sensation. An assertive female narrator provides an inside view of London’s alluring but cutthroat media technology scene.

In Alorin…three hundred years after the genocidal Adept Wars, the realm is dying, and the blessed Adept race dies with it. One man holds the secret to reverting this decline: Bjorn van Gelderan, a dangerous and enigmatic man whose shocking betrayal three centuries past earned him a traitor’s brand. It is the Adept Vestal Raine D’Lacourte’s mission to learn what Bjorn knows in the hope of salvaging his race. But first he’ll have to find him…

In the kingdom of Dannym…the young Prince Ean val Lorian faces a tenuous future as the last living heir to the coveted Eagle Throne. When his blood-brother is slain during a failed assassination, Ean embarks on a desperate hunt for the man responsible.

In the Nadori desert…tormented by the missing pieces of his life, a soldier named Trell heads off to uncover the truth of his shadowed past. But when disaster places him in the debt of Wildlings sworn to the First Lord, Trell begins to suspect a deadlier, darker secret motivating them.
