If you enjoyed reading about Billy’s trials with his cousin, the manipulative Kenneth in Intrusion and Infiltration, you’ll want to know what happens to these boys in adolescence. The new book is set in 1945, London.
1937-1940. In Book One, INTRUSION, five-year-old Billy Wilson is introduced to his frail, artistic and manipulative cousin, Kenneth. Against the background of impending war, Kenneth begins his invasion into Billy’s life and the rivalry begins.
1940-1945. Book Two, INFILTRATION, finds the two boys evacuated to the country. Billy finds nurture in his foster home that has been missing with his own parents, but a family tragedy enables Kenneth to invade Billy’s life wherever he is.
1945-1951. Book Three, IMPACT. In July, with the VE Day celebrations fading in memory, Bill is torn from the foster home he loves to return home. Reluctantly he faces a dirty and destroyed London in company with Uncle Ted, who is home from the war safe, but so odd and uncommunicative. Bill must share his Wandsworth home with manipulative cousin, Kenneth. The adolescent boys’ rivalry intensifies as Kenneth intrudes further, insinuating himself into relationships, toying with his friendships and betraying his secrets. A drama is inevitable. Can Bill deal with the dreadful fall-out?
IMPACT should appeal to all those who have made a fatal mistake and must live with the consequences.
Which of the trilogy’s characters can this be true of?
Herbert Wilson, who fails to recognise his son’s valiant and well-intentioned nature?
Marcia Wilson, always rather a chilly mother, who neglects to support her son’s talents?
Doreen Wilson, a warmer aunt, but whose romance with a G.I. enrages her son, Kenneth, who blames Bill for introducing the couple?
Mr Durban, owner of Bill’s secret icon, the Cossack sabre, for failing to keep Bill’s sanctuary safe?
Kenneth, for trespassing far too far into Bill’s psychological territory?
Uncle Ted, for refusing to communicate what happened to him on the Western front?
Or is Bill himself responsible for the drama that unravels?
The new book in this trilogy is 105k long, and so in the e-book version it is divided into two. But don’t worry, Part 2 of Impact will be available on two days after Part 1. Out December 1st
Those who prefer a paperback (like me) will not have to wait for their copy of the complete story.
