The Serendipity Foundation Synopsis

The Serendipity Foundation demands anarchy over apathy. They deal in terrorism with a social conscience. And they're going to make the British government play along. When four British citizens are kidnapped in Cairo, they soon realise this is no ordinary hostage situation: the accommodation is three star and the menu a la carte. Without the deep regrets and thwarted ambitions of their lives back home, they soon come to view their kidnapping as a welcome escape. They are the captives of the Serendipity Foundation, a tiny collective with a millennium-old prophecy to fulfil and a rather redeeming quality: they only demand ransoms that people would want to give. As the ransom demands begin, the British government has no choice but to play along...can they really allow four men to die because parliament refuses to conduct Prime Minister's Questions in Haiku? As the threats and demands escalate, so does the tension, until they challenge the very foundations and assumptions of the media, industry and society.

About Sam Smit

Sam Smit grew up in The Lost Gardens of Heligan as it was being restored and around the dinner table where The Eden Project was dreamed up. It was a youth spent watching remarkable people achieve amazing things. And then he left to the world of International Development in South Asia, and the grip of cynicism started to take its hold. The Serendipity Foundation is his first novel and an attempt to broker a meaningful dialogue between these two extremes.
