Product Description

Time travel murder mystery, and Listopia #1 rated hard science fiction, from Steve Stone. Check out the storyline and great reviews;

20 July 2017. Post-Obama, Colonel Lance Tucker is Commander of the next generation X-33 space shuttle Intrepid. The American and Russian Presidents convene for an historic dual launch.

As devastating Hurricane Ernie approaches, notorious international assassin 'The Chinaman' guns down both leaders, reigniting the New Cold War. General Jack Nelson orders Intrepid to travel back in time to change history - with hindsight, stopping the assassin should prove simple.

But who is The Chinaman? How does he know Lance's every movement? Senator Darrell McKay is helpful, but does his sinister Head of Security Vivian Kort have a hidden agenda? And what's out of place in TV footage of the double shooting, The Chinaman's car, and his unsuccessful assassination attempt on McKay?

The Chinaman's game of cat and mouse ultimately proves as dangerous as General Nelson's plan to destroy the super-storm with a secret neutron bomb...

Time travel murder mystery, with 2/3rds of the action taking place on Earth. Will appeal to mystery, scifi & adventure fans. 83,118 words.

Reviews;

'Absolutely top-notch writing! Steve Stone is in a class by himself!

The Two Storms, master writer Steve Stone's follow-up to his brilliant first scifi/thriller Intrepid... is like reuniting with old friends, Col. Lance Tucker & Gen. Jack Nelson are back! Combining genres, thriller and scifi perfectly, is the sign of a superb writer, & Mr. Stone is most definitely that... the excitement, thrills & extremely well drawn characters are even more refined... I was taken from the very first page, & the action, twists & intrigue did not let up until I read the very last word.

In creating 'The Chinaman', a ruthless yet far from stereotypical assassin, Mr Stone has shown he has the ability to fine tune villains as well as heroes... a testament to Mr. Stone's writing acumen. This is a villain the reader will not soon forget!

The plot, which includes time travel with the goal of preventing an assassination, as well as the sub-plots and twists and turns, are so deftly handled that the many parts of this most unique of books come together to form a very satisfying whole... this is the 2nd book in a series - the only negative thing is that I will have to wait to read the third instalment! This series is THAT GOOD!' RICK FRIEDMAN, JAMES MASON COMMUNITY BOOK CLUB

'The stages for The Two Storms are set. One is a political one when the Russian and American Presidents are shot, the other is a devastating hurricane.

As with reading any sequel I always set the bar higher, & for this one I wasn't disappointed. The characters all fall into place & are easy to keep up with. Confronting a hurricane with a neutron bomb from a B-2 Spirit gets serious cool points as well. Going against mother nature comes with an awesome sense of class this round. But first the Intrepid crew will have to survive another attempt at time travel to get behind the storms with enough time in their hands to prevent them.

After that, saving the world from a Cold War comes down to taking on street gangs to get to bottom of who The Chinaman is, & just as importantly, who he is working for. I was left right up to the very end trying to figure out the mysteries of identities here. I will read on to Intrepid - Revelations.' S.J. Wist,
Fantasy Cookie.

'Steve Stone works at the tough but exciting interface between the thriller & the hardest of hard science fiction. In this second part of his four-book series, we find spaceflight, gangland violence, high politics & a clutch of plot twists. Based on deep research and imagination, the series has delivered plenty already & the final two volumes promise much more.' Martin Ince, Science Journalist

More About the Author

A former expert IT Project Manager, Steve Stone has a number of award winning developments under his belt. Steve threw off the shackles of computer contracting in 2005 to become a full-time writer. He waited many years for an opportunity to begin penning his 'Intrepid' franchise of three novels, and three matching screenplays. To date, the first novel and all three screenplays are complete. Steve currently plans to release the second and third novels of the series in 2011.

Because the central characters are exposed to increasingly dangerous and complex challenges, multiple genres are explored; space, war, horror, historical mystery, gangland, disaster, comedy, and the stories are consequently action adventure rather than science fiction. So if you are a big budget film producer looking for your next formula fiction box office smash hit, Steve would love to talk to you about his screenplays!

Steve was born in Bristol, England in 1962, and was married to Debi in 1995. He has travelled to many parts of the world, his three-month tour of New York and Florida with Debi being of particular inspiration to the 'Intrepid' franchise. Steve has enjoyed a busy life, and has many accomplishments outside of his IT and writing careers;
