About the Author:

Peter Bowler has to his name several published books, most of which are, as the French say, introuvable, lending them an intrinsic attraction for those who cultivate the unattainable. He lives with his patient and beautiful wife Diana in an idyllic sub-tropical coastal town, and hopes one day to rule the world.
