Almost There. Guaranteed to cure your insomnia. Or your money back.
Okay, so the crack about curing your insomnia was a bit of an exaggeration, but at least it got your attention, didn’t it? Now comes the tricky part– coming up with something that’ll get you to give my wannabe conspiracy thriller a try. Sure, I could hype it up in true publishing style and say it’s “a slow-burning page-turner you simply
shadowy secret society prepared to go to any lengths to preserve its shadowy secrets, and just the right amount of intrigue, betrayal and death. All served up with a dash of schoolboy humour. Trouble is, I’m still not sure that’ll be enough to drag you away from the delights of Fifty Shades of Da Vinci. Time to try a different tack:

Except, of course, your insomnia.
