What is The Secret Fire?
The Secret Fire is my second novel, and like the first is a thriller inspired by the geography and history of major cities – in this case London and Paris – with a strong twist of alchemy, mysticism and magical lore.
A story of love and betrayal set during World War Two and in the present day, it is both a prequel and sequel to my debut novel The Malice Box, which was first published by Penguin UK/Michael Joseph in the UK in 2007.
The Secret Fire came out on April 16, 2009. This website provides links, for those who are interested, to further reading and sources on the book’s main themes. I hope you find it informative and useful.
