THE MIND OF A GENIUS CAN HOLD THE DARKEST OF SECRETS
A razor-sharp thriller


A Bosnian gangster is gunned down in a packed London restaurant. In his possession is a notebook once belonging to Isaac Newton. This is just the latest in a series of shocking crimes connected to objects once belonging to the famous scientist. The police are stumped and the pressure for an arrest is mounting.

Enter Vincent Blake, London's leading stolen-art investigator. Blake sets out to solve the case, a series of devastating events threaten to destroy everything he holds dear. Broken but undeterred, he comes upon a shocking discovery: within the coded pages of a mysterious crimson book, annotated in Newton’s own handwriting, is an explosive revelation. Possessing this secret knowledge turns Blake into a marked man.

Caught in the crosshairs of two sadistic hitmen, Blake is propelled into a breathtaking race through London and its dark historical secrets.

With time running out, will Blake solve Newton’s deadly puzzle before the world is plunged into a catastrophe of biblical proportions?

Interview with the Author

QU: So, what makes the Dark Horizon series special?

AN: My mission is to write action led thrillers that hit hard, right from the go. I write what I love to read. My top picks are usually thrillers and mysteries best sellers, and private detective novels. When I pick up a novel, I want to be entertained, that’s a given, but I also want to learn something new. I love telling stories that are on the blurred edge between fact and fiction; whether I’m writing about the world of art crime, the Royal Society, Isaac Newton, Freemasonry, the Knights Templar or the history of London; weaving a contemporary crime thriller within layers of true fact is what gives me a buzz. The function of a best-selling crime novel is to give the reader what they don’t get in their real lives. It’s about escaping the ordinary and entering into a world of the extraordinary. I hope the Dark Horizon trilogy does this in spades. Each book in the series is designed to keep you turning the pages all night long.

QU: Why should readers give these books a try?

AN: Because the Dark Horizon thriller series is an exciting, action-packed adventure. Just read the reviews and see why it has hit the top ten category bestsellers lists on Kindle for Crime Thrillers. Ultimately, readers who enjoy a taut, nail-biting adventure with a plot that twists and turns will love the Dark Horizon trilogy. Come and join Vincent Blake, the damaged hero of the series that reviewers are describing as 'the British Robert Langdon.'

Qu: So, where can I find the Dark Horizon series?

AN: The Dark Horizon thriller and mystery eBook series can be found in the following categories:

Supernatural Thrillers
Heist Thrillers
Mystery Series
Crime Thrillers
Private Investigator Series
Private Detective Novels
Thrillers and Mysteries Best Sellers
Paranormal Thrillers

About the Author:

Duncan Simpson spent his childhood in Cornwall, England. As a teenager he gained experience in a variety of jobs, from working in a mine to doing shifts as a security guard in an American airport. After graduating from the University of Leeds with a physics degree, he spent a year backpacking around the world. On returning to the UK, he embarked on a successful career in business. Along the way, he became the finance director for a technology company and a partner in a leading management consultancy firm.

The History of Things to Come was born out of his lifelong fascination with the relationship between science and religion. A keen student of the history of London, he loves exploring the ancient stories and myths surrounding the city. When he's not writing or consulting, you'll find him playing guitar in a rock band, running by the Thames, or drinking tea with his wife and three children in their home in Berkshire, England.
