A Trojan Affair

novel science religion conflict drama atheism politics racism

An outback town simmering with conflict, a preacher dancing to a conman's tune, and the naive boy who lights the powderkeg’s wick.

When gregarious Oxford-raised Dara Singh arrives in the dusty Calvinist village of Carnarvon, he is utterly unprepared for the reception that awaits.


Around the town, an international consortium of scientists led by Dara's mother's is constructing a multi-billion dollar infrastructure, designed to confirm the origins of the universe.

Their cantankerous preacher inflames the territory's natural suspicion of outsiders; himself dancing to the tune of a cabal of other foreigners pursuing their secret agenda

 

Dara is the wrong guy, in the wrong place, at the wrong time. As the situation unravels, decades of pent-up rage, xenophobia, and generational friction steadily peel away, leaving everyone reeling.

 

Modernity pits itself against tradition as religion vents its frustration against science in this thrilling geo-political page-turner.

Smorenburg congers up a tension-packed tale of intrigue and riveting detail.

Lose yourself in this story of zealots, scientists, and scoundrels.

The Praying Nun

An uncharted shipwreck, the mysteries she hides, and the damned souls who suffered in her holds.

In 1985 two divers discovered an ancient unchartered shipwreck off South Africa’s Cape of Storms. Salvaging the wreck only inflames the enigma with the trail of secrets compounding and the wreck refusing to yield her identity.

If you enjoy Wilbur Smith and Clive Cussler you are bound to enjoy this fact-inspired fictional tale by Michael Smorenburg, based as it is by personal experience, eye-witness reports and the items salvaged from the São José de. Pick it up now to go on the adventure of a lifetime

Ragnarok

A secret NASA experiment gone wrong, the chaos that ensues, and one reporter seeking the truth who follows leads where she shouldn't.

On a flight from Paris to Los Angeles Tegan Mulholland is intrigued & charmed by Pete, the mysterious stranger sitting beside her. But when their plane almost falls from the sky and other jets in her vicinity wink from the radar, the official explanations that follow reek to Tegan’s retired investigative journalist mind of cover up.

What is not declared: A secret NASA experiment has warped a column of time instead of space, plucking with it the planes out of our era, and a band of Norse warriors from the Vinland colony millennia ago into our epoch. Rowing eastward and back to Iceland, the contrail of Tegan’s plane appearing after the strange aurora and moving westward high above, the Norsemen conclude are Odin’s order to return to Vinland and the modern day Canadian coast, where, just days before, the skraeling Indians had driven them out.

As news reports flood Tegan’s living room of murder and massacre, speculating about which gang of roughly dressed bearded marauders are responsible for mayhem and murder around the quiet Canadian coast, Tegan has a hunch that the story is not what it seems. She quits her Hollywood Exec job and embarks on an odyssey that leads inexorably ever closer toward the Norsemen’s hidden lair.

Only Pete, the Lockheed consultant she had steadily fallen in love with during the harrowing flight and since, has any hope of saving her.

If you enjoy intrigue, conspiracy and romantic suspense, Ragnarok will grip your imagination and not let go.
