The End of the Pier Affair (The Secret of Aldwych Strand 1)

By Sarah E Smith

Sci-Fi | Paperback, eBook


Against his better judgement, football mad teenager, Mark, agrees to help his oldest friend Lucy to take some photos of Southend Pier. When Lucy hurts herself exploring the sealed off lower deck, Mark (who knows he should know better) leaps to her rescue. Only... neither of them is prepared for the adventure that awaits them as suddenly they’re not in Essex any more. To make it worse: the teenagers have no money, no friends and only what they can remember from their history lessons to help them. Desperate to get home, they end up in the East End of London in 1909, where one simple mistake inextricably links them to at least two key figures of the 20th century. Things get even more complicated when it becomes obvious that these 20th Century Greats - if left to their own devices – will destroy the Fabric of Time itself: thus making it impossible for Lucy and Mark to get back to 2013. Then just when Mark thinks it couldn’t possibly get worse, it does; as he and Lucy discover a top secret facility below the doomed Aldwych Strand Underground station. A captivating mix of time travel, soldiers and spies - this is a book for teenagers of all ages.

Born in Plymouth, Sarah has always telling stories because she has always been reading. If her parents lost her, they could find her amongst a pile of books. Quite early on she realised there were three ways to travel stow away in the TARDIS, study history and write a book. The publication of the Secret of Aldwych Strand(1) completes this trilogy. You see not only did she study history at University; she has been inside the TARDIS and she has travelled with the Doctor - but they were in a car and she was driving. The Secret of Aldwych Strand triology is not autobiographical but like all good stories there is an element of truth in all things. If dreams could come true Sarah would like to be a "Lady who Lunches". However, her cat @blofelds_cats wants to take over the world. So: please, help him out by buying into Mark and Lucy's adventures. If you enjoy the books; tell her. If you don't - please be constructive
