White Star Down is the new stand-alone novel set around events in 1912 but resonating throughout the Twentieth Century.

The book features the new character, John Cook, who is both intelligent and capable of looking after himself. But then he has to be, as he becomes embroiled in an early manifestation of the Irish Home Rule dispute and finds himself neatly in the middle of two warring factions, who are both intent on killing for their cause.

The book begins with John Cook's deathbed confession that untangles a web of silence that hides one of the most audacious plots of the times
