About this Item

Paperback. 332 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.8in.Oliver Cromwell is dead and Civil War looms once more. Abroad, the exiled Royalistsset in motion an intricately plotted plan aimed at putting a Stuart King back on the English throne. Under cover of the plot, which uses Civil unrest to alarm the population, one of the intriguers is steadily accumulating huge swathes of land by illegal means. Topping the list of this shadowy figure is the Hafod Estate of the Margam dynasty, located in the heart of the Monmouthshire valleys, desperately trying to recover from the burden of debilitating taxes imposed on those who opposed Parliament in the war. Alain Daguerre, orphaned but taken in by the Margams, stumbles unwittingly into the conspiracy and only his well-taught skills in weapons training and the brute militancy of his cousin William keeps him from serious harm. However, his nave eagerness to play a part in a perceived anti-government plot only serves to drag him further into bewildering intrigues, where friends and foes are not necessarily what they seem, and conspire to place his whole family in utmost danger. Weaving in and out of the plot are his ardently wilful cousin, Ceridwen, the cynical under-Sheriff of the county, Twm Shenkins, the Du Bari children, Simon and Bronwen, heavily involved in Catholic chicanery, a mysterious visitor, Richard Hamilton, with a well-camouflaged past, and a giant, hook-handed paid assassin, Struan McCheyne with a penchant for debauchery. Others contributing to the tale include Rula, a gypsy girl with strange powers rescued from a dire fate by Alain and a persecuted Quaker group also with a debt of thanks to pay. There is murder, rape, pillaging, a kidnapping and treasonable activity littering his path, and it is only his questioning, inquisitive mind that can untangle the web of deceit that threaten to destroy him and those he loves. Along the way he is forced to look deep into his soul to find the truth about himself and his relationship with those close to him. This item ships from multiple locations.

Synopsis:

Oliver Cromwell is dead and Civil War looms once more. Abroad, the exiled Royalists set in motion an intricately plotted plan aimed at putting a Stuart King back on the English throne. Under cover of the plot, which uses Civil unrest to alarm the population, one of the intriguers is steadily accumulating huge swathes of land by illegal means.Topping the list of this shadowy figure is the Hafod Estate of the Margam dynasty, located in the heart of the Monmouthshire valleys, desperately trying to recover from the burden of debilitating taxes imposed on those who opposed Parliament in the war. Alain Daguerre, orphaned but taken in by the Margams, stumbles unwittingly into the conspiracy and only his well-taught skills in weapons training and the brute militancy of his cousin William keeps him from serious harm. However, his naïve eagerness to play a part in a perceived anti-government plot only serves to drag him further into bewildering intrigues, where friends and foes are not necessarily what they seem, and conspire to place his whole family in utmost danger. Weaving in and out of the plot are his ardently wilful cousin, Ceridwen, the cynical under-Sheriff of the county, Twm Shenkins, the Du Bari children, Simon and Bronwen, heavily involved in Catholic chicanery, a mysterious visitor, Richard Hamilton, with a well-camouflaged past, and a giant, hook-handed paid assassin, Struan McCheyne with a penchant for debauchery. Others contributing to the tale include Rula, a gypsy girl with strange powers rescued from a dire fate by Alain and a persecuted Quaker group also with a debt of thanks to pay. There is murder, rape, pillaging, a kidnapping and treasonable activity littering his path, and it is only his questioning, inquisitive mind that can untangle the web of deceit that threaten to destroy him and those he loves. Along the way he is forced to look deep into his soul to find the truth about himself and his relationship with those close to him.

From the Author:

I plan my novels with a sequel in mind. In my erotic novel 'PAPER ROUND' I continued the tale with 'Paper Boy' both of which I intend to publish as Ebooks. 'PAPER CHASE' is under way. Regarding my novels currently on this website, the hero and his lady-love in  'INTERREGNUM' are obliged  to flee to re-locate to 18th century America and in the yet un-submitted 'RUNNER', the main characters finally leave Wales for America at the tail-end of the Crimean War. My Sci-Fi novel 'BLACK HOLES' about faster-than-light in Parallel Universes travel (just submitted to a publisher -fingers crossed-) has endless (no pun) possibilities for Time Travel adventures. A Western I have completed 'Dagger At The Heart' has the potential for a series taking place as it does at the end of the American Civil War.
The other novel presently on this website running concurrently with 'INTERREGNUM' is a one-off contemporary thriller with no thoughts of a follow-up.
