The History of Things to Come (The Dark Horizon Trilogy Book 1)

Duncan Simpson

The mind of a genius can hold the darkest of secrets
A razor-sharp thriller.

A Bosnian gangster is gunned down in a packed London restaurant. In his possession is a notebook once belonging to Isaac Newton. This is just the latest in a series of shocking crimes connected to objects once belonging to the famous scientist. The police are stumped and the pressure for an arrest is mounting.

Enter Vincent Blake, London’s leading stolen-art investigator. As Blake sets out to solve the case, a series of devastating events threaten to destroy everything he holds dear. Broken but undeterred, he comes upon a shocking discovery: within the coded pages of a mysterious crimson book, annotated in Newton’s own handwriting, is an explosive revelation. Possessing this secret knowledge turns Blake into a marked man.

Caught in the crosshairs of two sadistic hitmen, Blake is propelled into a breathtaking race through London and its dark historical secrets.

With time running out, will Blake solve Newton’s deadly puzzle before the world is plunged into a catastrophe of biblical proportions?

Interview with the Author

QU: So, what makes the Dark Horizon series special?

AN: My mission is to write action led thrillers that hit hard, right from the go. I write what I love to read. My top picks are usually thrillers and mysteries best sellers, and private detective novels. When I pick up a novel, I want to be entertained, that’s a given, but I also want to learn something new. I love telling stories that are on the blurred edge between fact and fiction; whether I’m writing about the world of art crime, the Royal Society, Isaac Newton, Freemasonry, the Knights Templar or the history of London; weaving a contemporary crime thriller within layers of true fact is what gives me a buzz. The function of a best-selling crime novel is to give the reader what they don’t get in their real lives. It’s about escaping the ordinary and entering into a world of the extraordinary. I hope the Dark Horizon trilogy does this in spades. Each book in the series is designed to keep you turning the pages all night long.

QU: Why should readers give these books a try?

AN: Because the Dark Horizon thriller series is an exciting, action-packed adventure. Just read the reviews and see why it has hit the top ten category bestsellers lists on Kindle for Crime Thrillers. Ultimately, readers who enjoy a taut, nail-biting adventure with a plot that twists and turns will love the Dark Horizon trilogy. Come and join Vincent Blake, the damaged hero of the series that reviewers are describing as ‘the British Robert Langdon.’

Qu: So, where can I find the Dark Horizon series?

AN: The Dark Horizon thriller and mystery eBook series can be found in the following categories:

Supernatural Thrillers
Heist Thrillers

Hope Franke Strauss

Gabriele Baumann-Smith is deliriously in love with her young husband Lennon.

Except, it turns out that Lennon Smith isn’t his real name. In fact, he’s full of secrets: a cottage on the southern British coast, an old girlfriend and… an identical twin brother.

Callum Jones–not his real name–can’t believe his brother’s widow came to England. He’d warned Mick–Lennon–that an inheritance could put the girl’s life in danger, and he was right.

“Mrs. Smith” is the last thing Callum needs to worry about right now. She’s beautiful, sure, takes his breath away at times. But when she looks at him, who does she see?

Gabriele’s heart is battered and bruised. Can one brother fix what the other left behind? And will they live long enough to find out?

Revealing Heaven: The Christian Case for Near-Death Experiences

Revealing Heaven: The Christian Case for Near-Death Experiences

Kara E. Powell

The Sticky Faith Guide for Your Unique Family addresses one of the top current concerns about youth and the church: the reality that nearly half of all young people raised in Christian families walk away from their faith when they graduate from high school. That’s the bad news. But here’s the good news: research also shows that parents are one of the primary influences on their child’s faith.

This book arises from the innovative, research-based, and extensively field-tested project known as “Sticky Faith,” designed to equip parents with insights and ideas for nurturing long-term faith in children and young people. Because of the Fuller Youth Institute’s six years of research with more than 500 young people, 100 churches, and 50 families, four of this guidebook’s unique qualities make it a “must have” for families eager to point their young people toward long-term faith.

First, it’s grounded in sophisticated, academically verified data. While Dr. Powell is a parent of three children who authentically weaves her own experiences throughout the book, the chapter topics correlate with parenting principles proven in national research.

Second, it is positive. Amid gloomy and theoretical resources, this book leaves parents empowered and hopeful that even little tweaks to their family rhythms can make a big difference.

Third, it is practical. Readers get what they want most: more than 100 ideas from other parents they can try today, this week, or this month.

Fourth, its “guidebook” format is accessible. For busy parents who don’t have time and inclination to read, this format is a welcome resource that they can return to time and time again for fresh ideas and inspiration.

Revealing Heaven: The Christian Case for Near-Death Experiences

Revealing Heaven: The Christian Case for Near-Death Experiences

John W. Price

In Revealing Heaven, Reverend John W. Price makes the case for how near-death experiences can be gifts from God and are fully compatible with Christian spirituality and the Bible. As a pastor open to near-death experiences, he has heard more than 200 personal accounts of this phenomena.

Todd Burpo’s bestelling book Heaven Is for Real, the story of a young child’s near-death experience, has validated the existence of heaven and of God for many. Yet there are Christians who remain uncomfortable with the idea of near-death experiences; they wonder if these events are in line with the Bible and Christian teaching.

In Revealing Heaven: The Christian Case for Near-Death Experiences, Reverend Price shares compelling testimonies that prove that Christians can not only trust near-death experiences as valid and consistent with Biblical teaching, but he demonstrates how they can help us understand death, grief, and what happens after this life is over, and provides ample reasons for us to be open to these amazing stories and to hope for what we’ve always dreamed about.

Charles Locke is risking everything to make his fortune in a tea-trading enterprise. Sarah Carlyle believes money is the root of all evil and is determined to be rid of her fortune. When Charles and Sarah are thrown together at sea, their hearts are unexpectedly bound.

And does Charles truly love her—or does he love her fortune?

#2 The Bachelor’s Bargain
Best-selling author Catherine Palmer brings readers another stand-alone Regency-period romance in the vein of Jane Austen. When Ruel Chouteau returns home after his supposed death, he shocks everyone. They are even more surprised when he mock-proposes to a common housemaid as proof that no woman in her right mind would marry him. Anne Webster is no ordinary woman, and when she is shot through the leg, it appears that she will surely die. She decides to accept Ruel’s proposal so he will be obligated to save and provide for her family. Since he will have a year to mourn her death, Ruel will be spared the hounding from his family and the many families of single women in the community. But after the marriage on Anne’s deathbed, she surprises them all by returning to full health! Now Ruel and Anne must face a future they never expected!

#3 The Courteous Cad
On her tour of the English countryside, a chance encounter in the streets alerts Miss Prudence Watson to the inhumane working conditions at the worsted mill. She learns that the owner is William Sherbourne, a Royal Naval officer just returned from sea. Following in his wake is his reputation as a cad and a secret so ghastly he’ll do anything to protect it. Even worse, he’s handsome and charming and not at all the villain Prudence expected him to be.
