Go Swift and Far

A Novel of Bath

Born in the wartime German raids on Bath in the Spring of 1942, an orphan boy, alone and destitute, is determined to survive. The city is immersed in a cycle of greed, abuse of privilege, corruption and demolition as it struggles out of post-war gloom and austerity. Demolish and rebuild or preserve and protect at all costs? The boy, now a man, is bent on success and wealth, whatever the personal sacrifice and cost to England’s finest Georgian city.

“A colourful and richly textured story worthy of this unique city”

Michael Symons

“History, passion and big business – an awesome combination, powerfully written.”
