About this title

Synopsis:

Dr. Joseph Krowe, a young scientist in London, develops a mind-bending drug—a pharmacological-chemical-nanite [PCN] mix—tests it on himself and almost dies. He tries to market PCN to a nightclub and disasters follow. Dr. Krowe barely survives. Meantime, his drug has initiated an accelerated evolutionary change in rats—New Rats. Their natural enemies—New Cats—also evolve, and a state of war exists between the two. Rats support Dr. Krowe, and he guides and influences them, as they continue to evolve. The drug also affects some humans. Freddie and his family befriend Sam, a young Rat who is a member of the Rat royal family, thus commencing a strong relationship between humans and Rats. Freddie—called Engineer by his friends—takes on responsibilities to aid the Rats’ plan to purchase a starship from alien refugees—the Shen. His task is to build the bubble warp drive which he designed; the drive, if successful, will allow the starship to travel at faster than light speeds. Engineer experiences violent attacks, love, deaths of family and friends, looming deadlines, and other challenges as he attempts to meet his commitments to support the Rats’ dream to travel in space. Rats are impatient to board their starship and depart Earth. Humans want the alien technology. Cats just want to kill Rats. Shen Ark: Departure is the beginning of a voyage that will follow Rats and a small group of humans as they attempt to achieve their dreams.

About the Author:

John Hindmarsh writes science fiction and thrillers, sometimes with crossover. Well, you need a thrill in your SF and an occasional touch of science in your thrillers. John originates from Australia, and now lives in the High Sierra region of California where he is writing full time. He could be hiking, kayaking or skiing, when he's not writing.

John's books generally are written with an American voice [well, he tries], although he prefers to write British English. So he gets mixed up - in any event, he claims aluminium is the correct word. See more details at JohnHindmarsh.com

Thrillers
Mark Midway series. Mark One, Mark Two, Mark Three, and Mark Four are available now, individually or as a boxed set. 

Science Fiction
The Glass Complex trilogy. The first book is Broken Glass. The second book, Fracture Lines, was released in September, 2016. The third book, Diamond Cut, is scheduled for release by the end of 2016.

Shen Ark series. Shen Ark: Departure was released as a possible beginning of a series. Currently it is a standalone title.

John has written a number of short stories, all science fiction although perhaps one or two have a touch of fantasy. Check his web site - JohnHindmarsh.com
