Book Description

Jun 2006
People are disappearing. Lleyton Quinn insists he knows nothing about it. It’s the truth. But not for long. The dark past that he’d hoped to forget, had never quite forgotten him, and now it is back to drag him to the centre of a phenomenon that could change everything. This is more than just missing people. The very fabric of his society is being slowly unstitched by an unknown seamstress, and Lleyton has been chosen to pick up the threads. Before it’s too late. Before he disappears too.

More About the Author

Paul J. Newell was born in Somerset, England, an unsettlingly long time ago, and is the reader of dozens of aware-winning books. He decided to become a writer himself so that he didn't have to get up so early in the morning. The Turning was his first attempt at a novel and was considered almost unanimously as really not that bad. After running out of friends and family to coerce into buy it, he decided it was time to write another book. And after a couple of years' procrastination, he immediately set the cognitive wheels in motion. Altered States was the result of that motion, and was considered even better than The Turning. The author has also published a series of short stories, titled the Manuka Experiments, and is currently working on his third novel.

3.0 out of 5 stars interesting 1 Mar 2014

Readable and an interesting idea but predictable in the rather rushed end. Will probably read another by the same author though.

By DanUK
I'm not usually a fan of fiction, but I picked this up and found it impossible to put down. An excellent plot, well constructed and brilliantly executed in a great book. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic and Inspirational 23 Jan 2007
An excellent book with never a dull moment. Seriously this book kept me gripped for it's entirety. The story is compelling, and Lleyton is a fantastic character who you gradually get to know and appreciate. I'd recommend this book to everyone. Paul introduces new concepts and ideas that get the reader thinking. Brilliant!
