Mark Brumby, Always Adam, A contemporary thriller…
A contemporary thriller…
Mark Brumby, the voice behind Langton Capital’s Day in the Life, is publishing a novel on 30 November 2020.
Always Adam* features viruses, vaccines & vendettas, at least two of which are very much front of mind as a result of Covid-19.
Although it is common political parlance that ‘nobody foresaw Covid-19’ that’s not true, is it? We remain, as we have always been, vulnerable to coronaviruses and that, unfortunately, is not a secret.
Setting the Scene:
Covid-19 is the biggest thing to hit us in several generations.
Our cocoon of invulnerability has been punctured by a microscopic virus. Much too tiny to see, it has reminded us that, like the birds and the bees, the lizards and the leeches, we are only animals – and it’s not through with us yet.
We hope that science will ride to our rescue. It must do because it always has. Hopefully, the Pfizer vaccine will work. But what if…?
…people interfered with science?
Spencer Beck is financial journalist low on cash and self-esteem. He’s looking for the big one. He’s an everyman, he’s like you and me.
Adam Reid is most definitely not like you and me. He is a peerless billionaire genius who has taken the world of science by storm. But he has a grudge, a big secret and a frightening ambition.
The big questions:
What if the good guys aren’t what they seem? Or even who they seem. What happens next?
And how do you stop a vendetta as old as time destroying everything we take for granted?
*Always Adam, a reworked version of Payback, is the first of an Adam trilogy. The second instalment, Being Adam, will be published in 2021. Enjoy Always Adam.
