Product Description

Product Description

Rufus Hennassy was an abused child who grew up to be a broken man. A modest man with modest dreams and a modest life. But at least it was a life.

Then came the crash. A nearly impossible car crash that should never have happened and that should have killed him, but which he walked away from almost unscathed. That was the first miracle. But it was barely the begining of the series of all but impossible events that began to turn his quiet well ordered life upside down.

Murderers and assassins lay around every corner, determined to catch him, find the location of the lost Rembrandt through him, and then kill him. And yet every time they caught him, fate stepped in in the most improbable of ways, and he escaped.

Then again what else could you expect when the ancient Greek gods were toying with you?

Of course the gods had their reasons for using him, and even as they toyed with him they knew that he would one day hold their own futures in his hands.

His destiny would take him from pawn to kingmaker, or king breaker. But which path would he choose?

More About the Author

Greg Curtis was born in New Zealand, land of the long white cloud and small flightless birds, in the city of Wellington, renown for its high winds and the almost magical ability of rain and sleet to be lifted off the street and blasted into one's face. After eighteen years of suffering the cold and wet, he was finally blown away in a particularly bad storm to settle far away as a student, for more years then most would ever admit to, and then more latterly, an overqualified and underpaid worker in the health sector, (aren't we all).

He has lived in the city of Rotorua, one of the very few places in the world where people have actually chosen to reside beside active geysers and breath air that reeks of sulphur, for the past fifteen years, working by day for his daily bread, and toiling away by night on his books. When not engaged in his great passions of reading and writing science fiction and fantasy, drinking strong black coffee (some call it tar), and consuming copious amounts of chocolate (dark naturally), he lives a quiet life of contemplation as the high priest to his two cats, worshipping them with regular gifts of food, occasional grooming and by providing them with a warm dry place to sleep. They in turn look down upon him with typical feline disdain, but occasionally deign to bring him gifts of headless vermin, - as a warning.

In a desperate bid to understand the meaning of his life, he has recently started studying philosophy, particularly metaphysics, and finally concluded that God is a cat!

Cheers and be good or don't get caught.

Greg.

It was a reasonably interesting fairy-tale, but it became more and more difficult to suspend disbelief. The recipe seems to be, mix Greek Gods with modern life and let fly.
