A small group of men and women meet in wartime to journey on a path that crosses time and space boundaries. John Devine, a writer of ghost stories gets employed by a government department run by the mysterious Colonel Draft who specialises in watching subversives. Both unwittingly become joined to an ancient order going back to Elizabethan times whose initiates include those at the very top of power.
But it seems the order has a German branch, not to mention an American one, whose interests interweave across the next two centuries with an incredible synchronicity. Nazi plots to use occult secrets to win the war are just the beginning of a web that seem to have been previously spun by sinister forces that reach into the present day.
From war-torn London to the Sussex coast to the American Midwest Conundrum is the first volume in the Other Bodies trilogy of novels, going beyond the physical limits of time and place into worlds forbidden, mysterious and far outside our understanding.
