My Name is O by Sam Enthoven

O has two tasks tonight. The first is to break into the Bank of England. Easy. Well, easy compared to the second - to challenge the shadowy presences who rule the world.

A clever sci-fi novel with a twist from The Black Tattoo author Sam Enthoven.


Praise for The Black Tattoo:

'[Enthoven is] clearly loving telling this story - there are some pleasing twists - and his energy creeps into the words on every page.' - Philip Ardagh in The Guardian

'For his first time out, Enthoven has crafted a fast-paced page turner that reads very much like watching a movie. The balance of fantasy/horror/action is just right. Think The Golden Compass meets The Matrix. An odd combination, no doubt, but Enthoven makes it believable and likable.'
