The Widow’s Son

I’m proud to announce the publication of my 7th novel

Synopsis of The Widow’s Son

Three months before the invasion of Iraq, a member of a Masonic fraternity known as the Rosicrucians is helped to escape from a British Intelligence holding station by the head of a counter-intelligence department inside the Russian Federal Security Service. But why was that, and what is it to do with a remodelled, highly classified CIA file, code name Gladio B that makes George Orwell’s novel 1984 read as though it’s a supplement to Winnie-the-Pooh?
The eight families who control the machinery of worldwide governments have shaped that file for their own ends, and in order to accomplish their ultimate aims they propose to start the war on humanity by using American field howitzers firing stolen Russian weaponised anthrax and phosphorous artillery shells on an unlikely target.
The first task facing the new chairman of the British Joint Intelligence Committee is to destroy the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics, and although he is aware of the location of these weapons of mass annihilation, time is running short before the whole situation is overtaken by the escaped Rosicrucian receiving the Masonic mystical ‘thirty-three degree level of understanding’.


About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp’s introduction to the world of espionage and mystery happened at an early age when his father was employed by the War Office in Whitehall, London, at the end of WWII. However, it wasn’t until after his father died that he showed any interest in anything other than himself! On leaving academia he took on many roles in his working life: a London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver, but never did he plan to become a writer. Nevertheless, after a road traffic accident left him suffering from PTSD and effectively—out of paid work for four years, he wrote and self-published his first novel —The Desolate Garden. Within three months of publication, that book was under a paid option to become a $30 million film. The option lasted for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company. All seven of his novels are now published by Creativia with the seventh—The Widow’s Son, completing a three book series alongside: What Happened In Vienna, Jack? and Once I Was A Soldier. Under the Creativia publishing banner, The Desolate Garden went on to become a bestselling novel in World and Russian Literature in 2017. The following year, in May 2018, his book What Happened In Vienna, Jack? was a number one bestseller on four separate Amazon sites: America, UK, Canada, and Australia.  Although it's true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows most about; murders laced by the mystery involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he writes, namely: Why? A Complicated Love, and the intriguing story titled The Story That Had No Beginning. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication and described as—the new Graham Green—by a highly placed employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of book signing events. He has also appeared on 'live' television in the UK publicising that first novel of his. He continues to write novels, poetry and the occasional quote; this one is taken from the beginning of Once I Was A Soldier There is no morality to be found in evil. But to recognise that which is truly evil one must forget the rules of morality.
