An action-packed historical sleuth thriller for fans of The Da Vinci Code. A seeming straightforward job turns into a race for survival as a cub reporter stumbles upon information about a secret organisation - but who can be trusted to help?


The Invisible Assassin : The Malichea Quest by Jim Eldridge

As a Junior Press Officer for the British government, Jake is sent to cover a 'non-story' - a demonstration against the construction of a laboratory on the supposed site of an ancient fairy ring. But what Jake sees there is shocking and terrifying and leads him to investigate a clandestine organisation - the Order of Malichea. And then sinister things start happening: Jake is 'accidentally' pushed, almost falling under a tube train; Lauren, Jake's girlfriend, has all her notes on the Order stolen; and then Jake returns home to find a dead body in his flat and is accused of murder. Who is trying to scare Jake? Is it the British government? Or other, more sinister agencies? Either way, Jake and Lauren must fight for their lives ...
