"Everything about you is a lie."
Freeman Sullivan is a man running out of time. As he submits his final manuscript to his sceptical editor, he tells the story of Professor George Tate, and Celus - his seemingly ageless assistant - as they are expelled from the British Museum and embark on a journey that leaves a wake of irrevocably changed lives.
Because Freeman has realised the Professor's truth - that the walls are thinning and the shadows are lengthening as our world awaits Her arrival.
Martin Adil-Smith was born to a Persian mother and an English father in London, 1978. He completed a BA (Hons) in Criminology at Middlesex University in 1999, before pursuing a career in commercial Real Estate.
