The Testing of Archie Rathbone by Alex Hunter

The Indie Book of the Day for 12th of April, 2014!

Genre: Fantasy, Humor

Having fallen asleep in his flat in Clapham, Archie Rathbone is understandably indignant when he wakes up on the shore of an uninhabited tropical island, with no idea how he’s got there, or how to get home. To make matters worse, all he has for company is a talking seagull.  Meanwhile, the price of Phoenix Tuna shares is going through the roof, and Emma, Archie’s ex-girlfriend, suspects something fishy. Neither of them realise that in trying to unravel the mystery, they are about to put the whole human race in danger. Will Archie escape from his island prison and confront his captors? What is the connection between the secret organisation ALIRTS and the cafe proprietor Jakub Baranski? And what have Bolt, Upright & Clench (Tailors to the discerning since 1746) got to do with it all?  The Testing of Archie Rathbone is a tale of treachery, sorcery and the price of fish…

Read Sample

Alex Hunter was born in the early nineteen-sixties, when that was still considered the fashionable thing. He discovered the joys of story telling and creative writing at school, where his talents in that area were widely acknowledged.  He started to write his first novel, Through Eyes of Gold at the age of twenty-two (an historical fantasy novel charting the ‘life’ of a gold ring, from the discovery of the nugget by an ancient Egyptian miner, through to its ownership in nineteen-thirties England). After completing the first thirty pages, he foolishly got a job, and this really interfered with the creative process for the next fifteen years.
