Book Description

Tapestry of Death

While on a business trip to Shanghai, Peter Newton is shaken by a feeling of being briefly transported to another world where an unknown woman is holding his hand and urging him to come back. He is further shaken when the gift he purchases there for his girlfriend, Judy, which he thought was just a prettily carved box, turns out to be a daguerreotype – one of the very earliest forms of photography from the late nineteenth century. In the photograph are four persons, one of whom is him.

Who are the other people? Why is he in a photograph that seems to have been taken in the nineteenth century? And why would he just happen upon this in a junk shop, in an obscure street in Shanghai?

Peter returns to New York to comfort a distraught Judy, who has been on a hiking trip and has narrowly managed to escape being savaged by a sickle-wielding phantom. The three friends she went with were not so lucky. It is upon leaving her and returning to his own apartment that he discovers that he has slipped into another world – one where his apartment is lived in by another, and where things almost seem to be the same, but not quite so.

As the book unfolds, this enigma is explained, even as a befuddled Peter Newton must shake off the doubts of all around him to confront the uber terrorist.

More About the Author

I have travelled extensively over the many years I've spent as an executive at the world's largest Ad Agency. It was during the many hours I've spent waiting around in desolate airport lounges and flying from my (then) adopted home-town of New York to Shanghai, London (where I now live with my wife), Mexico (where I lived for many years) etc that my novel began to take shape. I wanted to bring together my desire to write an absolutely riveting page-turner with my first hand knowledge of these far flung places and my fascination with the on-going discoveries in quantum physics. The novel took me four years to write - less a labour of love than an obsession; a need to wrestle Peter, my protagonist, through a world where he is disbelieved and where he himself doesn't really know what's going on, to getting to the very heart of a puzzle and a discovery that unsettles his sense of the very order of things.
I hope you like it

5.0 out of 5 stars A very entertaining read 14 Jan. 2013
By JeffJ
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was an unexpected pleasure: an impulse Kindle download that has proved to be one of the most entertaining works of fiction I've read in many months. A twisty turny plot that keeps you guessing all the way along, nicely written, and a real page turner. Highly recommended for anyone needing a bit of enjoyable escapism and a thumping good story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping 21 Dec. 2012

From the first page, the book grips you, and it's easy to lose track of time following the plot. There is a lot of fascinating information in there, in addition to a great story line.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pacy, gripping read 10 Nov. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you enjoy books that are full of action and have a bit of a sci-fi twist, this is for you. It cracks along at a great pace and is a really enjoyable read. Even though the story involves complex themes - from ancient Mexican symbology to the Large Hadron Collider and parallel universes, the plot completely sucks you in and keeps you gripped throughout. Thoroughly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars A real page-turner! 4 Jan. 2014
By Charlotte in FL - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a well-written and suspensful novel. Even though the premise is unbelievable--time travel in parallel universes--Johnson manages to almost suck you in. The plot is fast moving and the characters are well developed. I enjoyed the use of different locations for the action, New York, London, Shanghai, and Tepotzlan in Mexico. Anyone would like this book, since it is a real page-turner yet has some literary weight. A great book to take on vacation! From Carlota Ex-Mex
4.0 out of 5 stars A good story but a few loose ends 31 Oct. 2013
By Irena Bril - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I got totally absorbed in the mystery and the surprises that kept appearing in the story. it was difficult to put the book down for all the suspense. Up until the conclusion when the book almost abruptly ends with a few key characters and situations left unexplained. I can't mention these in detail for fear of spoiling the story for new readers.
For a first book effort, it was well written and easy reading. I would recommend it for the suspense.
