In the Story

It's summer in the spectacular Bosnian city of Sarajevo. A lightning strike of terror is being clandestinely directed at the future king and his princess bride while the royals parade among welcoming crowds in an open touring car. In the midst of this diverse population of Balkan bystanders are Serbian assassins stalking the presumptive heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne. The killers attack twice, delivering injurious and fatal hits.

Outrage and bitterness from within the Austro-Hungarian government touch off a siren call for punishment of majestic proportion. The allied Central Powers of Austria-Hungary, including Germany, demand retribution by deliberately issuing an irreconcilable ultimatum; to be followed by a quick, decisive invasion to crush Serbian nationality.

At Berlin's office of the Chancellor, a respectful clerk named Ernst Frieslaven is asked to comment on his country's strategy. His answer foretells the brewing political conflict between ordained, old-world monarchies and emerging and open modern democracies.

Frieslaven loses his ideological balance, challenged for his patriotism by officials who learn of his romance with a charmingly seductive activist, Rosa Liber. While Frieslaven agonizes, his lover plots a dangerous version of civil disobedience influenced by an oppressive past of prejudice and torment. Shamelessly, she sets out on an assassination attempt of her own to prevent the German Empire's fanatical expansion.

Steve Catto
About: Steve Catto is an old man, or at least that's what it says on his birth certificate. He was born in Yorkshire, but his parents took him to Australia when he was six years old and he grew up there, sometimes racing cars across the desert.

He was never very good at school, but the one thing he did learn was how to learn, and he started writing programs for the computer at the local university, much to the disdain of his teachers who told him that he would ‘never make a living out of that rubbish'. In his late teens he returned to the UK, and his parents followed him – which wasn't what he wanted because he was hoping to get away from them. His first proper job was in the computer department of an infamous Oxford publishing company, and he subsequently went on to write software for electricity control systems, and simulators for the military. He started to fly gliders and wrote programs to analyse the data from aircraft flight recorders, where he also learned to fly, and crash, lots of other types of aircraft as well – which was the best part of the job. At various times in his career he has also lived and worked in France, Switzerland, and Canada, and he now lives in Scotland. Since appearing in school plays as a child he has performed almost continuously on the amateur stage, and spent a few years scuba diving. These two things have nothing to do with each other. In terms of his pedigree as an author he has written many technical manuals and filled in countless timesheets, so is well versed in the art of conjuring up works of fiction, however he has never written a novel before, especially not one that involves a blonde girl and a man with a bow and arrow, but he did once spend three weeks working in a factory that made handles for buckets.
