SOMETHING IS ROTTEN - first contemporary thriller from Echo Publishing


The first contemporary thriller from Echo Publishing,
Something is Rotten is a page-turning & suspenseful morality tale

When budding writer Brent Taylor dies a horrific death in the Auckland University Library, his friend, sex worker Jade Amaro, refuses to believe it is suicide. She seeks help from Sam Hallberg, a former government advisor on terrorism, now working as a mechanic.

As Sam reluctantly agrees to look into the death, a hunt for a lost manuscript leads him ever deeper into a complex case of corruption and deceit. Meanwhile, Sam’s friend, brilliant business journalist Lynette Church, embarks on an investigation of dirty political dealings with major global implications, and with ties to the Iraq War.  It soon becomes clear that something is indeed very rotten…

Beginning in New Zealand, then winding its way around the globe, this clear-sighted and tense thriller will have you on the edge of your seat. The first crime fiction release from Echo Publishing, Something is Rotten is a superbly written morality tale with Shakespearean twists and turns.
