The Janus Reaction

M.F. Ball


The Janus Reaction tells the story of a boy of great promise born into the destruction of World War 1 within war-torn London.
His family of roots still firmly Up-North centre the boy and his three sisters as all four are nurtured towards great things albeit in vastly different directions.
Yet it is our boy who is nurtured into a most impressive man only for those he admires most to create of this young man a monster who could change the course of history, were he of a mind to so do.
The characters he passes on the winding road to his destiny; both colourful and dark; real and imaginary, exhibit the very best and the most challenging of man’s behaviour as our story travels through the ravages of World War II in Russia and Paris.
Hardened and torn by the experience of wars overt conflict and in assassin subversion our boy meets his most challenging role and that which might change the world as we know it today.
