About the Book

Is it possible to escape Brindavan? Gopala, now a young man, flees the Community only to discover that his cloistered upbringing has ill-prepared him for life in the outside world. Anthony and Sheila, having built a new life far away from Brindavan, suddenly find that Govinda’s malice is able to reach across the miles endeavouring to harm them. Meera, however, seeks to ingratiate herself with Brindavan, assuming a new identity, determined to exact revenge for her sister’s death. But will she learn that revenge brings pain and bitterness rather than gratification? ………………………………...... John Thompson published The Brindavan Chronicle:Genesis to critical acclaim in 2015. Now Nemesis takes the characters several years forward, to the outcomes - both good and bad - that they have earned.

About the Author

John Thompson was born in the district of Eton in 1942, and spent a happy and carefree childhood in the rural setting of Old Windsor. After attending Windsor Grammar School, he went to the University of Aberdeen, graduating in 1965 with an Honours Degree in History. He followed this by reading for an M.A. in American History at the College of William and Mary in Virginia, and happened to be in the United States when both Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy were assassinated - tempestuous times! On his return to the U.K., John taught at a private school in London and eventually became side-tracked into Law, reading for an external degree from the University of London and then taking the Bar examinations in 1976. He spent the next two decades as a practising barrister. Over the last decade he has specialised mainly in short stories, and has won awards from the ‘National Association of Writers’ Groups’ and been short-listed several times in other competitions, notably those contained in ‘Writing Magazine’. He is a keen member of his local writing group. John Thompson published The Brindavan Chronicle:Genesis to critical acclaim in 2015. John has also published three volumes of short stories: Adventures in Time, a collection of time-travel stories for children; The Female of the Species, stories of women who exact their own particular kind of revenge for wrongs done to them; and Strange Encounters, a collection of ghost stories.
