His struggle is, however, about to take a very different and personal turn when he meets Max Lombard. There’s something all too familiar about the enigmatic Lombard, but why? As their paths become more intertwined, a shocking realisation strikes Kirk. He must act. But is he too late?
Discovery is the first book of the trilogy, The Third Terrace of Purgatory. It is a fast-paced psychological thriller following one man’s struggle to hold his life together in the face of adversity.
The title draws reference to Dante's Divine Comedy. Mount Purgatory has seven terraces, each one representing one of the seven deadly sins. The Third Terrace represents Wrath, and the novel takes a contemporary view of anger and the journey towards ultimate redemption.
