Titan Books have announced they’ll be publishing Gavin Scott’s The Age of Treachery in paperback and ebook format on 12th April 2016.
The Age of Treachery is the start of a brand new mystery series set in post-war Britain, written by acclaimed British Hollywood screenwriter Gavin Scott, whose screen credits include projects with Steven Spielberg and George Lucas. Introducing Oxford don Duncan Forrester, a young man scarred and aged by war, Scott perfectly captures the fragile spirit of a nation recovering from the destruction of WWII.
Ex-Special Operations Executive agent Duncan Forrester has returned from the war and is back at his Oxford college as a junior Ancient History Fellow. But his peace is shattered when a much–?disliked colleague is found murdered in the quad. Forrester is not convinced of the principal suspect’s guilt and, on the hunt for the true killer, he finds himself plunged into a mystery involving lost Viking sagas, Satanic rituals and wartime espionage.
Featuring cameos from J.R.R. Tolkien, Ian Fleming and Thor Heyerdahl, The Age of Treachery is perfect for fans of John le Carré, Colin Dexter and Dorothy L. Sayers.
