More About the Author

Michael Harrison was born and educated in Oxford and later went to Durham University, where he gained a BA in Philosophy. He then taught at a farm school in North Queensland, Australia as a member of the Bush Brotherhood. He milked the herd of cows daily and travelled the bush taking services and funerals. Michael returned to Oxford to get a teaching qualification (A.C.E.) at the University, and has since taught in Hartlepool, London, and now in Oxford.

He has written for his own pleasure for as long as he can remember but now finds, to his surprise, that people will pay him for it.

Michael is married with two sons and lives in Oxford.

Gripping mystery 30 Nov 2000
By Ruhama Kordatzky - Published on
Format: Hardcover
We often enjoy living vicariously through other characters in books, and being able to solve mysteries is one of the top experiences. Simon and Charley, enemies to begin with, team together to find out who killed Charley's father, especially when Simon's father is suspected. This book keeps a quick pace and provides some suspense. The characters are believable, and the language is delicious!
