body-in-the-snow-kindle-coverHere is a little introduction to my main character, by way of an excerpt as Bebe reflects back on her singing career:

“Who am I kidding?” she spoke to herself. “Of course it’s worth the risk. I’d kill to get my career back.”

Her journey started out back in 1967, when the singular child Barbara Bolton was just thirteen years old. A friend of her father’s was working for a record company and told her over Sunday dinner that Cliff Richard was looking for a quiet little girl to record a duet with, a pretend father-and-daughter song for Mothers’ Day – just perfect for her.

She auditioned and made the shortlist. At the last minute, however, Cliff’s management decided against the idea and chose a different direction for the star. Her parents were distraught and cheered when the very next year Cliff Richard missed out on victory in the Eurovision Song Contest. That would teach him for snubbing her, they all had thought.

The song she had auditioned for was given to a different singer and a different girl but the producers had noticed Barbara’s memorable voice and took her under contract, not yet as a recording artist but as a performer at Sunday tea dance events. Her voice was very distinguishable and perfectly suited to convincingly cover the songs of Clodagh Rogers, Sandie Shaw or Lulu. Innocent looking as Barbara was, she presented no distraction to the regulars of those dances and blended perfectly into the low-key set-up which the conservative organisers of such events tried to achieve.

Her family invested in a vocal coach and soon she was contributing handsomely to the family’s finances with regular engagements on weekends and on some weekday nights. Her father would accompany her to the events to make sure that, despite her young age, she was able to perform in clubs and bars.

She was gradually allowed make-up, new glasses, modern hairstyles and outfits that showed her as a grown-up instead of the choir girl image she so despised. Her mother made sure, though, that Barbara remained a sexless and conservative version of Lulu and Olivia Newton John. body-in-the-snow-twitter-banner-preorder

In 1971, a talent scout for Andrew Lloyd Webber hired her to perform in West End shows but after a few years of this, by the mid-Seventies, Barbara was fed up with the repetitiveness of her singing life and with the boring roles she ended up with. She longed for something outrageous and lively and some original material to sing, preferably outside the world of stage.

She observed how back-stabbing and bitchiness had brought less talented women than her to the public eye. By keeping quiet and doing as she was told she was missing out on the opportunity to become a big star. The audience had failed to single her out. Barbara was in danger of becoming a regular side-kick.

“Daddy, I can’t bear this boring music anymore,” she complained at the kitchen table one evening. The family ate usually early so Barbara could go to work on time and that day was a special occasion because her agent had confirmed that the contract with the musical company was going to be renewed. Her mother had prepared a big roast as celebration and was expected to serve it any minute now.

“What are you talking about?” her father had asked, surprised. He put his newspaper and reading glasses aside and folded his hands over his swelling belly. “I’ve sacrificed so much time and money for your career. What on earth do you want to do instead?”

“I want to sing real music, Daddy,” she said, passionately. “The show tunes are a dead end. The times are changing. Just listen to the Beatles, Abba, Donna Summer, pop music and disco. Don’t you recognise the change?”

“That’s all just a phase,” her father had said, his eyebrows narrowing. “Show tunes are eternal.” Bebe 1

“Look, Daddy,” she had insisted. “Even at Eurovision miserable chansons lose out to upbeat pop numbers, these days. Abba, The Brotherhood of Man … they have real hits. There is a career to be made out of this trend.”

“Everyone needs to know their place in life,” her father said dismissive, giving her an affectionate pat on the arm. “Not everyone can be a Barbra Streisand or Dionne Warwick, you know. Be content with the career you have. Others would be happy with that. As a singer, a steady income is hard to achieve. You did very well for yourself,” he smiled, picked up his reading glasses and his newspaper and waited for his wife to serve the food.

When her manager repeated the same sentiments, she took a gamble by not renewing her contract with Lloyd Webber and descended into London’s nightclub scene, where she covered songs by Gladys Knight and Dionne Warwick. She became a moderate success there but was still stuck at the easy-listening end of the musical spectrum.

Barbara’s thick glasses were a problem as they provoked too many comparisons with Nana Mouskouri. After a few months of singing in a popular jazz club, a handsome record producer took a liking to her and decided to make her a big star.

Richard Karajan had successfully produced some minor but well-respected artists and that was exactly the kind of niche market Bebe had been hoping to break into.

“The first thing we need to do is change your name – Barbara Bolton sounds so ordinary . . . too provincial . . .  there’s no theatricality, no sense of the exotic.” He tugged at his lip and stared into the distance.  “Barbara Bolton . . . Babs Bolton. No . . .”

He thought about it some more and then clicked his fingers.

“Yes! Of course! Barbara Bolton – BB, your initials. We’ll call you Bebe.” Then, his eyes fell on a bottle of champagne that nestled in an ice bucket on her dressing table. It was his present to her at the end of her gig. His eyes lit up when he read the label on the bottle, and so the name was born.

She liked it, and Bebe was eternally grateful ever since that the champagne in question had been Bollinger and not Piper-Heidsieck.

The other thing we need to do is to teach you how to walk on heels without your glasses on,” Richard had said.

She looked at him with outrage, but his smile was warm and disarming.

“Darling you’ve got sex appeal. It’s time you started showing off.”

“My father always said I should know my place,” she replied. “When it comes to my looks, I’m not going to be flattered.”

“Nonsense,” he replied and squeezed her buttocks. “I know better than your dad. And you know better than him, else you’d still be singing show tunes.”

He didn’t wait for her response and took her glasses off.

“Now walk. Take as long as you like. Walking slowly can add a lot of gravity to a singer’s image,” he said.

Under his adoring and encouraging comments she found confidence. The focused walk that resulted from Richard’s training was a signature move of hers that made her instantly recognisable whenever she went on stage. It did give her an air of mystery and caught the audience’s attention. Her unfocused stare added to that mystery and her young, curvy body appealed to the audience.

Bebe’s first single entered the charts low but gradually moved up. Thanks to ever-increasing airplay, the song made it to the top twenty. Richard’s drinking buddy was working for the BBC and he had successfully persuaded some of his friends to put Bebe’s song on their playlist. It could pass for a jazz number if you were looking at it benevolently, and it was beautifully in sync with the moderate feminism that was emerging at the time.

Her follow-up hit Losing My Mind enjoyed a very positive reception. It was less catchy than its predecessor but the orchestration built up to a great big finale. BBC airplay ensured that she made it on to the Top of the Pops show. By then her husband, Richard decided it was time that Bebe record her first album. Her blend of soul and jazz was aimed at the more sophisticated niche of the music market and she preferred it that way. She rather fancied herself as a serious artist, and for such a precious image she happily would forfeit monetary gain. With Richard by her side it was easy to forget about money anyway.

The less appreciative members of the public, however, soon started to make fun of her signature stare. Stand-up comedians and TV comedy programmes were cruel and in that regard the title for her second single had been unfortunate. Losing My Mind gave the mocking audience a line to associate with her trademark facial expression, which became a stigma she carried around with her name for the rest of her career − and beyond

I'm extremely hopeful for this book: It has done better than all my previous books in pre-sales and it surprisingly sold out completely at the Kensington Book Fair last Saturday, where I had presented the already released paperback version.  

(I will write more about the Book Fair later this week.)

Here is a review (from an Advance Review Copy) by Lorna Lee, author of “Never Turn Back” and “How Was I Supposed To Know”, to whet your apetite.

“This is the best kind of fiction—it’s based halina and ludwikaon the real life. Ludwika’s story highlights the magnitude of human suffering caused by WWII, transcending multiple generations and many nations.irena friend and son


WWII left no one unscarred, and Ludwika’s life illustrates this tragic fact. But she also reminds us how bright the human spirit can shine when darkness falls in that unrelenting way it does during wartime.


This book was a rollercoaster ride of action and emotion, skilfully told by Mr. Fischer, who brought something fresh and new to a topic about which thousands of stories have already been told.”ludwika book concept (1)

Blurb: It’s World War II and Ludwika Gierz, a young Polish woman, is forced to leave her family and go to Nazi Germany to work for an SS officer. There, she must walk a tightrope, learning to live as a second-class citizen in a world where one wrong word could spell disaster and every day could be her last. Based on real events, this is a story of hope amid despair, of love amid loss . . . ultimately, it’s one woman’s story of survival.

Review (from an Advance Review Copy) by Lorna Lee, author of "Never Turn Back" and "How Was I Supposed To Know":

"This is the best kind of fiction—it’s based on the real life. Ludwika’s story highlights the magnitude of human suffering caused by WWII, transcending multiple generations and many nations. Image (1)

WWII left no one unscarred, and Ludwika's life illustrates this tragic fact. But she also reminds us how bright the human spirit can shine when darkness falls in that unrelenting way it does during wartime.

This book was a rollercoaster ride of action and emotion, skilfully told by Mr. Fischer, who brought something fresh and new to a topic about which thousands of stories have already been told."


The book was inspired by a real story. ‘Ludwika’s family asked for my assistance in their ancestry research because one of my other books, “The Luck of the Weissensteiners”, touches upon similar issues of Displaced People in Germany after WW2. With strong support from my sister, who still lives in Germany, I spent several months gathering data and contacts. I was fascinated by the subject and re-read a lot of the books and sources and then decided to fictionalise Ludwika’s life.

Lud 2

People in extreme situations, like during WW2, had to make incredibly tough choices. There was no logic, guarantees or protection from the madness that raged at the time. So much bravery and hardship remains to be told and understood. By telling this story I hope to help fester humanitarian values.

Here is a little excerpt:

The mother still looked a little suspicious at Ludwika but as soon as the train had started she ran towards the toilet with Martin, the oldest of her boys. He had soiled himself by now, unable to wait and she had to clean him up and put some fresh clothes on. Ludwika smiled at the obedience to rules the young mother had demonstrated by not going to the bathroom, even though it was a child emergency. It occurred to her that from now on she would probably have to conform to the same bureaucracy and strictness.

By the time mother and son returned Ludwika had already made good friends with the remaining three, who were busy teaching her more German nursery rhymes. Martin, the young boy in new clothes, also joined in. The woman watched in awe as her children were completely taken in by Ludwika, almost oblivious to their mother. Once the inspector had seen and validated all of their tickets, the German woman took out a book and read. Ludwika froze when she saw that it was a book written by Adolf Hitler himself.

She heard her father’s encouragement in her head to keep going and not to worry about anything before there was a need for it. It was true, the woman would mean her no harm, not while Ludwika was taking care of the children.

After the singing had stopped the children told her about their grandparents’ big villa by the Alster in Hamburg and how they looked forward to eating ice cream at its shore. The mother had obviously decided to leave her to it and only occasionally spared a glance around the compartment, the rest of the time her head was turned towards the window and deep into her book. Undeterred, Ludwika was grateful for the children’s company and the happiness it brought her. The oldest boy, he looked about six, asked her to read them a story from their book and she happily obliged. It would be good practice for her. She found it very difficult, however, and the children didn’t seem to understand her renditions of a German folk tale.ww2_3_children_carrot_sticks

The mother put her book down now and took the seat beside Ludwika.

“Don’t give up so easily,” she said. Ludwika couldn’t make out if the woman was scolding her or meant to encourage her. The tone was harsh but the face seemed benign.

Ludwika started a different fairy tale, and every time she mispronounced a word the woman would step in and correct her with surprising patience, while one by one the children fell asleep in their seats.

“You’re not bad at all for a foreigner,” the woman whispered. “Your German will get better over time. Don’t lose heart and keep going, then it will become easier and soon take care of itself.”

She looked her up and down.

“Where are you from, Ludwika?”

“Poland,” she replied, a little nervous.

“I know that, but which city?” the mother asked.

“Near Breslau,” Ludwika decided on.

“Are you Jewish?”

Ludwika jerked and shook her head vehemently.

“No,” she said quickly.

“Then I’ve got to thank you,” the mother replied, relieved. “My name is Irmingard. Irmingard Danner. You saved my life by giving me those two precious hours to read.” She looked towards the door and then she added in a low voice, so that nobody could hear: “My husband Erich has been hassling me to read that Hitler book for weeks now. My father-in-law works for the publishers and is a big shot in the party, too. He’s bound to ask me questions about it. I can’t make myself read the damn thing. Don’t you, too, find politics is so boring? As hard as I try, after ten minutes I can’t remember what I’ve read earlier. Today was the first time I could concentrate and I will be able to say at least a few intelligent things about it and do my husband proud.”

CONDITIONED COVER for cover reveal
12079306_10153713673622718_4083079509306996845_nThe Conditions Series is easily the work closest to my heart. Conditions was my first ever novel and I packed it with the things that I knew and that I wanted people to know about. 
I personally have struggled with depression and minor but consistent psychological problems all of my life. Understanding and support came often from unlikely sources, if not from people who were in the same boat with me. Many had it much worse.

Mental illnesses make people uncomfortable and many prefer to brush them under the carpet - whether they are suffering themselves or if it affects those around them. Sadly, this silence makes the problem worse; whether that is depression, addiction or bi-polarism....

NASTRAGULL SCIENCE FICTION (1)In the Conditions Series I'm not lecturing you about it. I'm portraying one rather likeable character with a specific mental health issue and show how people around him adapt - some great, some not so great.
I've chosen a 'condition' other than my own so the book wouldn't be spoiled by becoming auto-biographical and I've deliberately added a dose of lighter notes and quirky supporting characters to keep it as enjoyable as possible.

Understanding breaks down barriers and mis-conceptions. It teaches tolerance, compassion and empathy. My Condition Series tries to contribute to this in its own little way.

Conditions 51OSxd6QQeL._UY250_

When Charles and Tony's mother dies the estranged brothers must struggle to pick up the pieces, particularly so given that one of them is mentally challenged and the other bitter about his place within the family.
The conflict is drawn out over materialistic issues, but there are other underlying problems which go to the heart of what it means to be part of a family which, in one way or another. has cast one aside.
Prejudice, misconceptions and the human condition in all forms feature in this contemporary drama revolving around a group of people who attend the subsequent funeral at the British South Coast.
Meet flamboyant gardener Charles, loner Simon, selfless psychic Elaine, narcissistic body-builder Edgar, Martha and her version of unconditional love and many others as they try to deal with the event and its aftermath.

Conditioned (Conditions Series 2) condiotioned-twitter-ad-oct16

CONDITIONED  dives back into the world of gardener Charles, his friends and the state of his mental health - one year on. We meet loner Simon and his battle with the outside world, co-dependent Martha and her abusive husband Clive, neurotic poet Catherine on the verge of getting married, Tony, who finds his strange brother Charles a challenge, psychic Elaine looking for a new direction in life and quirky widow Sarah Roseberg who has a go at sorting out all of their problems.
CONDITIONS  aimed to sensitise readers and make them think about tolerance and acceptance.
CONDITIONED  wants readers to look beyond their attitude towards Conditions and examine what we all do and what we can do to overcome our challenges. The sequel is another snapshot of this circle of friends. Some will have improved their lives, others will not.

Why #alcoholism #domesticabuse and #codependency ?

It would be an exaggeration (maybe) to say I have been through all of those myself. But, it is something I know more about than I would care for.

anniversary-157238__180

In my youthful, hedonistic days I drank a lot and I saw some close party friends of mine lose control over their drinking and recreational pleasures.
Many also clang on to very unhealthy and literally damaging relationships. I sat with some at lawyers, police stations and A&E, only to see them return to their torturers.

I, too, stayed for far too long in one relationship that was, although not physically violent, very volatile and emotionally draining and abusive.images

Looking back I can see that it could easily have become more destructive had we stayed together.
It took me years to recover and to trust people again.

I wanted to portray the thought and behaviour patterns that hold people in their self-made prisons, which is why I added some of the characters in the Conditions series.

I keep witnessing very bad relationships and have learned just how wide-spread a problem they are. Unless we all speak up and make it part of what is openly discussed and acknowledged, victims of abuse will think they are alone in this and have no hope. Unless we share what we know, witnesses to these relationships will not recognise them for what they are and will not know how to provide help and support.

The Conditions Series touches upon those issues (amongst others), hoping to bring them into the mainstream and the wider conscious.

Excerpts from my new thriller THE GAMBLERS 

g1-sm-lottery2



THE GAMBLERS is the story of Ben Andrews a shy accountant who becomes obsessed with numbers and luck. 

When he wins the Lottery and becomes rich over night his life changes, but not necessarily in the ways he had thought.


Who can he trust, now that he's rich? How should Ben build his new life? Still frugal and determined not to waste his money unnecessarily he unexpectedly falls under the spell of a charismatic and seductive Russian poker player, named Mirco. They share a passion for gambling but this fascination remains ambiguous for Ben.


What follows for Ben becomes a gamble with trust, corruption and 'betting on the right horse'.   


Excerpt 1:

He stopped at a very modern warehouse conversion in the meat-packing district and parked on the road. Finding a spot so easily was yet another token of luck, Ben thought. Mirco rang an unmarked doorbell and got buzzed into the building straight away. He walked with familiarity through a set of doors and around the corner towards a lift. The thing was made of bleak metal and didn’t signal anything like ‘way to a reputable designer or stylist’. Ben started to have doubts about this adventure until the elevator opened directly into a penthouse with massive windows and a French door out to a roof. He walked to the window to admire the stunning view over the river. The air was crisp, the sky clear; one could see for miles. There was something incredibly beautiful about this and empowering. Alexander-Skarsg-rd-alexander-skarsgard-7963329-397-569
“You like?” Mirco said, amused, and laughed at his friend for being so easily impressed. “I keep forgetting you’re a tourist here.”
Ben almost didn’t notice, he was so taken in by the view.
“Bella,” Mirco called out loudly and clicked his fingers. “Your clients are here. Let’s have some champagne, shall we, and an espresso for me, too.”
Ben turned around to have a look at the inside. Standing with his back to the window he saw the elevator and a reception desk beside it. All of the space this side of the elevator was a large walkway with a few seats and a sofa. Behind the reception desk and along the wall were several closed doors.
A stunning, dark-haired woman in a tight black leather dress and high heels came from behind the desk with a tray of filled champagne flutes, obviously prepared for this request.
“Oliver will be out in a second,” she said as she handed Ben and Mirco each a glass. She kissed the Russian on the cheek. “Good to see you. It’s been a while.”
She looked dismissively at Mirco’s suit. It was bland in comparison to what the Russian had worn a day before but it surely didn’t call for such contempt. Ben could tell that it wasn’t cheap. 
ad5_sm-lottery“You’ve been cheating on us and been going to the shops,” she said and looked at him with assumed disgust. “Shame on you! Wait what happens when Oliver sees it.”
Mirco pulled a scared face and winked at her.
Seconds later a tall but plump man of about fifty entered the room. He wore heavy-rimmed glasses on a string around his neck, a green plaid jacket and yellow trousers in a similar check design. Balding and wearing a scarf, he looked incredibly camp, but when he spoke he sounded rather butch and serious.
“Is this the guy?” he asked, pointing at Ben.
“Yes, Oliver” Mirco replied. “We need a full new wardrobe and to refine his look.”
“Oh yes,” Oliver said to Mirco as if Ben wasn’t even there. With no introduction or formality Oliver ruffled through Ben’s hair and shook his head. “First, we need to get his hair sorted. Bella, ring Jean and tell her it’s a Mirco-emergency. Tell her to bring her entire team. We’re going the full shebang.”
Then he took out a tape measure. “Eve, bring your notebook,” he ordered and an equally stunning blonde girl in a short leather skirt and a silk blouse came running, ready to take notes.
Oliver took measurements of Ben’s body. Fast, rough and focused on the task, he shouted out numbers to Eve.
“I’ll be one sec,” he said and disappeared into the rooms behind the elevator. When he came back he brought a couple of clothes stands with suits, shirts and coats.
Ben stood there like a lemon, puzzled and uncomfortable.
“Get him a refill,” Mirco said to Bella. “The accountant is starting to feel nervous at the sight of your glamour,” and laughed heartily. He turned to Ben. “Don’t worry, it’s my treat. I want to show you what the good life is like. I know you’re happy with your own boring style, but get a taste of mine and see how much fun it is. You’ll never go back, trust me.”
Ben shook his head but didn’t argue. The pretty girls made the ordeal of modelling rather bearable. As he looked at himself in the mirror from time to time he did like the improvements. It was rather skilled what the team did to him, he had to admit it; money well spent, he reckoned.

Excerpt 2:

“Don’t waste any time,” Ben said. “The sooner you pull, the sooner I get to go home,” he stated loudly, although he wasn’t so keen on going home any more.
Mirco looked at him with disappointment. “You have a lot to learn, my friend. This can be a game, too, and a very enjoyable one at that. You mustn’t pick the first girl and be done with it. What would be the fun in that? It’s like Poker, where you don’t know who holds the better cards. Get her to want to win you, see her raising the stakes, and then see who won whom over or who pulls out at the last minute. Like I said, I could have a girl sent to my room any day. This is much more exciting.”
He took Ben by the arm and pulled him into a large drawing room where the beautiful Indian girl had gone. Mirco looked around the room. nipJ4CHWgtxJ1dFVRaQXHoXXXL4j3HpexhjNOf_P3YmryPKwJ94QGRtDb3Sbc6KY
“She’s gone somewhere else,” he said. “And so the game begins.”
Ben shook his head in disapproval. Part of him was intrigued, though. It would be interesting to see how Mirco would be ‘playing’ this. He scanned the room. Could Wendy be in a place like this? Could she be here?
The two men walked from room to room, the kitchen, a music room and finally they went down into the basement, which was dimly lit with neon lights and minimal furnishings, like a Nineties’ dance club. Jazzy lounge music had some people moving to the rhythm. The Indian girl was amongst them, dancing with her eyes closed half of the time.
Mirco got drinks from the bar and spoke at length with the pretty black bar girl. Ben saw from his seat how the Indian girl had briefly noticed the flirtation at the bar, yet, maintained her uncommitted air and kept dancing.
Mirco brought the drinks over to where Ben had been waiting and then led him back upstairs into a sitting room where two men played chess with a set of artfully carved pieces on a polished ivory board. dsc04718
“Now there is a game of skill,” he said and nudged Ben. Mirco studied the two players without looking at the board itself, whereas Ben did the opposite. To him, it was clear who would win.
“I bet you my winnings from the casino that the guy on the right will win this,” Mirco whispered in Ben’s ear. “I can sense it.”
“I’d take that bet,” Ben said. The man on the left was maybe four moves away from checkmate, as far as Ben could tell. Everything about that player oozed calm and an analytical mind. “What do you want from me if I lose?” he asked.
“If I win this bet you need to pick a girl here and bring her back to your room,” Mirco said and laughed.
images (3)“I’m not doing that,” Ben said indignant. “That’s in infantile dare!”
“What’s infantile is to wait for that stewardess,” Mirco said and nudged him again. “You’re not married to her yet, so don’t be such a boring goody two shoes. I promise, if you ever date her I will never tell what you’ve been up to tonight,” he added in a half-hearted whisper behind the back of his hand.
“I’m not like that,” Ben said, annoyed.
“Well, I thought you were so sure of the bet?” Mirco said with a smirk. “You’ve got nothing to lose, then. Try to be more confident, that’s what gambling is all about.”
Ben pondered for a while. It was true. He only hesitated because Mirco was willing to bet against him. That was undermining his confidence. There really was no way the game could take a turn now. alexander-skarsgard-photograph
“I’ve never been good at ‘pulling’ girls,” Ben said. “It wouldn’t be any different here. I doubt that if I lost the bet I could keep my end of the bargain.”
“Fine,” Mirco said. “As long as you give me your word of honour that you’ll really try, that should do.”
“That I can promise,” Ben said, getting into the playfulness of his friend’s mood at last. “It’d be a miracle if this game turned around, though.”

in search of a revolution - redoneTwo more weeks until my new novel IN SEARCH OF A REVOLUTION will be released on March 26th. Below is the blurb and an excerpt to whet your appetite (you can already pre-order the book on Amazon)

In 1918 young Zacharias Nielsen boards a ship in Copenhagen to join the Red Guards in the Finnish Civil War. Encouraged by an idolised teacher with communist leanings, he follows the call for help from his Nordic Comrades, despite his privileged background. His best friend, Ansgar, has opposing political ideals to Zacharias but, for his own personal reasons, finds himself soon stuck in the Scandinavian North with Zacharias and Raisa, a Finnish nurse who helps them in their new life. Through the years that follow the brotherly war the trio see the political landscape in Finland and Europe change as Communists and Fascists try to make their mark and attempt to change the world order. Our heroes must find their own personal and ideological place in these turbulent times as friendship, honour, idealism and love triangles bring out some personal truths. JK002The book spans almost thirty years of history and the various Finnish conflicts: Civil War, Winter War, Continuation War and the Lapland War. Watch the political and personal self discovery of characters in search of their own revolution.


Here is a short excerpt from the book:

Chapter 1: A Tavern in Copenhagen, January 1918


copenhagen-237561_640Zacharias Nielsen’s mind was full of joyous anticipation, so much, he could hardly stay put in his seat. Even when he was sitting his legs were shaking fast and his hands were rubbing nervously up and down his trouser legs. The thought of the ship journey tomorrow morning was almost too much to bear. An electric pulse ran down his spine whenever the thought recurred: It was really happening.  The tavern was dark so Zacharias had to strain his eyes whenever someone entered the room. He sat on a hard wooden bench behind a long narrow trestle table near one of the corners so he could see both the entrance and the serving bar. His drinking companion and dear friend, Ansgar, could not help smiling.  “I’ll be missing your over-excitement the most,” he said. Zacharias shrugged his shoulders, smiled and continued to stare at the entrance to the tavern. in search of a revolution - redoneIn the summer this place was always heaving with bicycle messengers and postmen who came to unwind after their shifts, but tonight it was almost empty and the two had the large table all to themselves. The tavern was located in the basement of a large stone building near the government buildings, several few steps down from the cobblestone pavement, and with its low ceilings it always felt dark and cozy, even in the summer. In winter, the early nightfall turned the countryside too soon to darkness, and the resulting lack of custom gave the place an empty and incomplete feeling.  With the days so short, it always felt as if it were much later than it actually was, and somehow that seemed to persuade most of the regulars to go home earlier, or not to come out drinking at all.  Beside the two friends, only a handful of customers were there, all chatting quietly instead of engaged in often noisy arguments and beer-fuelled discussions. images (5)“Where is everybody?” Zacharias asked, his eyes scouring the dark interior “Everyone’s been invited!” He took off his cap and ran his hand through his curly blond hair before putting the cap back on. Even though he was wearing thick grey trousers and a heavy winter coat, he looked unhealthily slim, an impression that was not helped by his pale complexion and his restless behaviour. “It’s cold and dark,” Ansgar pointed out calmly. Much taller and stronger built than his friend and blessed with handsome dark looks, he was physically and emotionally a stark contrast to Zacharias. “It’s hardly tempting to leave your house, especially to celebrate that you are leaving all of your friends.” “Do you think they disapprove?” Zacharias asked. MarshallCG“Who can say?” Ansgar replied and took a sip from his beer. “Joining the war in Finland on the side of the Reds will impress some of them, of that I am sure. They might not to turn up because they haven’t got the guts to do it themselves.” “Who wouldn’t be jealous?” Zacharias said, sonding naïve and proud at the same time. “It’s the opportunity of this century, to eradicate the divide between rich and poor and to bring all humans together. Imagine what the world will be like when the revolution has come? Ansgar, that’s a much better cause to fight for than the assassination of an Austrian heir to the throne.” “I wish you were right,” Ansgar said, trying to sound serious, but the enthusiasm of his friend was infectious and he couldn’t help smiling. “About the revolution or my friends?” Zacharias asked. suojeluskunta2“Both!” Ansgar said and winked. Zacharias shrugged his shoulders and turned his attention back into the room, which he continued to scan for new arrivals. “Not everyone is like you,” Ansgar explained. “I still remember when I joined your school and the other students called me a pig and the poor farmer’s child. The endless fist fights for my honour and how nobody but you would ever speak to me at first. You never joined their banter and instead offered me a place in your life. You treated me as an equal even though you came from a far more privileged background.” “The others soon did the same,” Zacharias reminded him. “Yes, once they all learned how big my father’s pig farm was and how wealthy,” Ansgar replied dismissively. “You were a friend regardless,” he said and smiled at his friend briefly with warmth before adding in a more concerned tone: “Don’t expect much of that fraternity in Finland in the heat of a revolution. Old prejudices will always remain and no ideology can erase them from people’s minds. You’ll always be a little too posh in the eyes of your comrades, I reckon.” “Nonsense,” Zacharias replied. “I made friends with you, the farmer’s boy. I shall do the same in Finland.” “Still, your lack of prejudice separates you from the rest of us,” Ansgar said and took a sip of his beer. “It’s your strength and your weakness.” “It’s unity that makes us strong,” Zacharias replied animatedly. “Even if your family had been as poor as everyone assumed, you had a lot to contribute. If it wasn’t for you I wouldn’t know how to fight for myself. I was considered a weakling until you taught me the ropes of boxing and how to stand up to attackers. I wouldn’t dare go to a war were it not for your lessons in that regard.” 83942_kuva“In that case, I wish I hadn’t taught you,” Ansgar said in a serious tone but with a broad smile. “I don’t want to lose a friend because the Grand Duchy of Finland can’t make up its mind what kind of country it is going to be. I’d rather you got injured in the boxing ring.”

The Healer by Christoph Fischer is a book you must read as soon as it is released. You do not want to run the risk that the buzz about the book will spoil this thriller for you. The book is, of course, well-written. It’s a quick read that you will want to hurtle through in an afternoon, or over a weekend. At its core are interesting, enigmatic characters, and a clever plot. The story is told from the point of view of the main character, Erica Whittaker, who in midlife is diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. It comes as no surprise that she’s desperate. Traditional medicine has nothing more to offer her. She is about to give up and accept her fate when, at the urging of her devoted office assistant, Hilda, Erica decides to pursue another path. That path takes her to the door of a once-renowned faith healer, Arpan. Using a different name, the man is, virtually, a recluse. A man with a mysterious past, Arpan also possesses a great gift, as testimonials from previous recipients of his healing bear out. He is, at first, reluctant to treat Erica. When he finally takes Erica on as a client, his treatment unleashes a series of unfortunate events, as big pharma and other opponents from his past, line up against him. Erica, who has secrets of her own, soon finds herself caught up in a web of intrigue, being stalked, cornered, and manipulated, fighting for her life. Will she survive? What will happen to Arpan, and those around him? You’ll have to read the book, of course, to find out. Quite entertaining and well worth the read, this book is highly recommended.


The Healer


When advertising executive Erica Whittaker is diagnosed with terminal cancer, western medicine fails her. The only hope left for her to survive is controversial healer Arpan. She locates the man whose touch could heal her but finds he has retired from the limelight and refuses to treat her.  Erica, consumed by stage four pancreatic cancer, is desperate and desperate people are no longer logical nor are they willing to take no for an answer. Arpan has retired for good reasons, casting more than the shadow of a doubt over his abilities. So begins a journey that will challenge them both as the past threatens to catch up with him as much as with her.  Can he really heal her? Can she trust him with her life? And will they both achieve what they set out to do before running out of time?
