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?

Synopsis

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 ...

Jim Eldridge

After leaving school, Jim Eldridge embarked on a wide variety of jobs before going to Teacher Training College. His time as a teacher at a Junior School in Luton was the inspiration and basis for his hit Radio 4 series King Street Junior. As his writing career took off, Jim moved from full-time teaching to supply teaching. This included working with physically and mentally handicapped children. In 1987, Jim became a full-time writer.

Most of his writing credits has been in the TV and radio field. And given than Jim's written over thirty books, that's a lot of TV and radio!

Jim's latest TV project is Monster TV, a 26 part sitcom for the BBC, which will debut in late 1999. He created and wrote the BBC TV series Uncle Jack and the award-winning Bad Boyes, also for the BBC. In addition to creating original material, Jim has been a writer on Tv series based on stories by other well-known children's writers, including Whizziwig by Malorie Blackman and Ghost Hunter by Ivan Jones. Other top-rated shows which Jim has worked on include Julia Jekyll and Harriet Hyde, Harry's Mad and Woof. He also adapted The Demon Headmaster and The Headmaster's Brain for BBC Radio.
