9781466396142: Shifting Sands

New Zealand 1997. As a serial killer traumatises the country, Caspian is re-evaluating his career. Science has been his life, but an unorthodox approach to problem solving is out of favour with the new corporate ethos that sees science as a business. There are other pressures too as Caspian’s beautiful French wife, Marie-Claire, is becoming increasingly disenchanted with life at a remote beach on Maori tribal lands, an environment and lifestyle that Caspian is reluctant to give up. But when the body of a colleague is washed up on the sand and another, Robert, is arrested on suspicion of murder, nothing can ever be quite the same again. As he seeks to help his Maori detective friend establish Robert’s innocence, Caspian stumbles across a scam involving illegal genetic engineering experiments with a money trail leading to an international pharmaceutical company. As the suspense grows, the dirty underbelly of science for profit is revealed as a culture of corruption where the truth no longer holds any currency.

About the Author:

John is the Director of Risk Frontiers, an independent research centre in Sydney. Risk Frontiers undertakes research into the management of the impacts of natural disasters on communities and prices these impacts for the insurance sector. Since gaining a PhD in Madison, Wisconsin, John has worked in Australia, New Zealand, France and Spain. He is the author of 'Where Wine Flows like Water: A Gastronomic Pilgrimage through Spain', which chronicles the walking and culinary adventures of John and a friend as they walk from the French side of the Pyrenees to Santiago de Compostella. For some years, he was based at a small research station in the northern-most part of New Zealand, an area to which people are drawn for its climate, coastal scenery and opportunities for sailing. For some of this period, John, Delphine and their two children lived at a remote beach on Maori tribal lands. His novel 'Shifting Sands' grew out of this experience.
