Bene Factum Highlights

  • Persian Roulette

    The first Harry Linley adventure

    In the midst the world’s faltering recovery from the economic crisis, listless financier and ex-special forces officer Harry Linley accepts the seemingly innocent task of spending a week cat-sitting for a friend.

    By the end of the third night, however, two men are dead on the kitchen floor.

    A handful of disparate international strangers find themselves subsequently entangled in a web of deceit, sex and murder amongst the glittering towers of Dubai, with a seemingly unstoppable chain of miscommunication threatening to bring them and the world to ruin.

    And at the heart of all this chaos: a beautiful, white Persian cat.

    This hilarious, mile-a-minute thriller provides a sharp-eyed satire of our globalised world, in which those who shout loudest, shoot fastest and spend most always try to come out on top.

    Funny, troubling and thought-provoking all in one – from a man who has been there and seen it himself!

  • Cruising Along

    Around the world in eighty years

    The sea life is embedded in Christian Lamb’s DNA. In this delightful memoir she takes her readers on board with her, chronicling her adventures as she cruises the world, to every continent and across every sea, spanning a lifetime.

    As a passionate plantswoman, an inquisitive historian, and an insatiable traveller, Christian follows the routes of her heroes, the seafarers, botanists and explorers of old, and rediscovers their stories in person, setting them in the context of the modern world.

    And all along the way, from New York to Patagonia, New Zealand to Moscow, the shipboard characters accompanying the author round out this wry and witty narrative, a charming account of sailing the ocean and exploring the furthest corners of the earth in eighty years.
