"The book begins with an inherently compelling premise: the idea of shadowy organizations battling for the future of the world. But this exciting concept falters under poor and confusing pacing. The novel frequently jumps back and forth in time with no apparent purpose, continually forcing the reader to reorient."

Synopsis

In July of 2014, turmoil prevails in many countries around the globe by mere coincidence or possibly by design.

James Lane is a moderately successful Australian businessman who receives a strange summons. His presence is requested in London by an acquaintance known as Barnaby which he feels compelled to accept. The only explanation he receives is an old leather box file that he finds waiting on his aeroplane seat.

Travelling via extravagant private jet James soon learns that the box file once belonged to an English shipping magnate named Jon Calder who died over seventy years ago.

Teaming up with semi-retired Special Air Forces operative Jack Warner, it becomes apparent that James is becoming entangled in the sinister dealings of a powerful organisation. The enigmatic Barnaby and his extraordinary capabilities afford some protection, but for how long?

What does Calder have to do with James? How is Barnaby involved? Who or what is behind the looming threat? Whatever the answers, Calder somehow foresaw the events of 2014 and the part James would need to play in them. Someone or something called Morfius may hold the keys to answering these questions.

It is up to James and Jack Warner to find the truth, before it's too late.
