Oracle

Blood calls for blood.

Near the ancient Temple of Apollo, young environmentalists protest outside an international conference. Inside, business lobbyists mingle with politicians, seeking profit and influence. Then the charismatic leader of the protest goes missing.

A body is discovered, placed like an offering to the gods. The next day a broken corpse is found at the foot of the cliffs where blasphemers were once tossed to their deaths.

As a storm closes in and strange lights are seen on the mountain, the conference is cut off. Is a killer stalking them? Or are primal forces reaching out from the past? Like the cryptic Oracle of Delphi, Cassandra Fortune must supply the answers before the conference is over. And before more die.

Justice will be done, but what kind of justice?

‘What a splendid sequel. ‘Oracle’ is a page-turner, an engaging and absorbing read.’  David Armstrong, playwright (listed Branagh New Writing Award 2020)
