Ordinary Thunderstorms

    By

    One May evening in London, as a result of a chance encounter and a split-second decision, the young climatologist Adam Kindred loses everything - home, job, reputation, passport, credit cards, money - never to get them back. With the police and a hit man in merciless pursuit, Adam has no choice but to go underground, joining the ranks of the disappeared, struggling to understand how his life has unravelled so spectacularly.

On the way he encounters aristocrats, priests, prostitutes and a policewoman - but will he ever find himself again?
