9781475287684: Charles Middleworth

'An insightful and humorous tale of the unexpected.’

What happens when Adrian, an actuary, has his banal and predictable existence turned upside down by sinister forces that he can neither understand nor control? How will he react to a revelation that leaves his life in turmoil? Will he surrender or strive for redemption in an altered world, where rationality, scientific logic and algorithms no longer provide the answers?

'A sardonic delight. If Thackeray had lived in the 21st century, then he might have written Charles Middleworth.'

‘A wonderfully funny, dark and sardonic snapshot into the world of the much maligned actuary.’

‘The limited world of a dull and awkward techno geek is galvanised by certain psychological revelations. Insightful, imaginative and full of subtle wit.’ - Harley

‘Charles Middleworth is a literary masterpiece with a carefully woven plot.’

'This was a captivating book, well written with a witty dry sense of humour.'

About the Author:

I currently reside in London, the city of my birth. Having finished my schooling I studied for a B.A. in Theology at Kings College London, a subject that I chose out of interest rather than any religious persuasion. I also have an M.A. in Sport and Leisure Management from London Metropolitan University. My working life has included being employed in academic research and the sports industry, where I spent several years at a Premier League Football club. I have also traveled extensively, living and working in both Sydney and Tokyo. My first novel, Charles Middleworth, is a humorous tale of the unexpected about an an actuary named Adrian, who has his banal and predictable existence turned upside down by sinister forces that he can neither understand nor control. My second book, Necropolis (Release Date: April 24th), is a darker work of fiction. Besides writing, editing and promoting my work I enjoy reading a wide variety of books, reviews of which can be found in the review section of my blog. My other interests include sport, social media and the outdoors.
