Featured: Shades of White by Tom Boles Purchase:

Review: “A fast-paced thriller, with lots of exciting twists and turns. The plot, location, and scientific background make for an excellent read.”

MI6 calls on Brad Willis to go to Antarctica to investigate powerful and dangerous radio surges.

Their strength cannot be rationally explained.

They are interfering with experiments and instrumentation.

Laboratories have been damaged.

People are dying.

Electrical supplies are mysteriously failing.

Planes are dropping from the sky.

Who is doing this?

How are they doing this?

Murder and sabotage impede his investigations. Brad Willis must stop them before the Antarctic base is locked down for the winter.

If he fails, everyone on the base will freeze to death.

Meet Tom Boles:

During these trips, he had designed and presented shows using the ship’s onboard planetarium. His experience as an astronomer inspired this story.

He lives in rural Suffolk where he enjoys dark skies free from light pollution.

Review by Dee UK:

Every page led to more intrigue and excitement. I really struggled to put this book down until it was finished.

The author, Tom Boles, avoided long descriptive passages but with his comfortable easy writing style managed to slip in meaningful and helpful elucidations where necessary of Antarctica and science during this action-packed and fast-flowing story, bringing it to life in technicolour including Shades of White.

These thrilling adventures would make a brilliant film.

I was left feeling the author had cleverly interwoven a scientific background within a well-researched location, as well as wanting to read more stories about Brad Willis and his escapades.

A thoroughly exciting and enjoyable book.
