An Empire of Silence

By Anthony Chapman

Thriller | Paperback, eBook


Master thief, Jack Higgins, has just pulled off the crime of his life - he has stolen the Whitely Diamond and left irrefutable proof of the theft. That’s what he was hired to do, and that’s where he should have left it. But instead of handing it over, Jack gives the diamond to charity, and a few days later the government catch up with him. Jack is offered a deal he can’t refuse - if he wants to stay free: help catch a major international criminal, and all of Jack’s ill-gotten gains will be legitimised. Now he's a Secret Agent Jack heads to London for this final job, unaware that his every move is being monitored. His contact is a mysterious woman named Sarah who terrifies him and their journey ultimately leads to a conspiracy to start a war, and a dark secret at the heart of America’s wealthiest family. Blending elements of thriller, black comedy, sex and violence, An Empire of Silence both celebrates and subverts the classic novel for men.

I've been inventing stories since I was a child. My first, and so far only play, Trial of the Living Dead, was produced in Cardiff in 1991. I was so thrilled by the response that I wrote a novel, now lost. I went on to train as an actor and work in community theatre. I wrote a few screenplays, none of which were produced, and started writing prose again about ten years ago. After many rejection slips, some funny ones and one with good writing advice, I decided to indie publish my books. I'm still trying to figure out how to sell them!
