Our book of the month is The Experimentalist by Nicholas Salaman.
The Experimentalist follows the adventures of Marie as she tries to escape and understand at the same time.
Marie is a child with a dark past - a secret family history that her guardian protects her from. She's not sure what the dark secret is: was her father a criminal, a Nazi, both? Unpleasant lawyer Brickville seems to hold all the cards, until she meets a kindly American, Felix Middleberg. When her life takes a turn for the worse, he steps in to look after her. But he knows more about her than he should and exercises a control she finds oppressive. Where does his wealth come from? What has happened to her family? Who, in fact, is Marie? And can she ever escape her protectors?
This book provides a great journey, as the main character, moves from one adventure to the next. It is full of 1960's concepts and environments that help to mould the story. You will be unhappy with anyone interrupting you reading this book, as its pages continue to grip you to the end.
