About the Book

Sloughville was the place where just one man has control. It was a modern-day Xanadu, with a playground of exclusive clubs, pretty girls, and handsome men. Not to mention police and officials with expensive tastes on the take. Enter Susan Dax, a mysterious woman who has lethal fighting skills and a secret. She flies into the city after receiving a message from a friend requesting her help—fast. Susan Dax had no idea how fast until she arrives in Sloughville and finds her friend dead. Suddenly, it seemed that everyone wanted her out of town immediately. The police made it obvious that an influential millionaire made it crystal clear and so did his glamorous wife and his son, each threatening to make her stay very unpleasant if she didn’t heed their advice. However, somewhere in Sloughville, a murderer was having themselves a holiday. Susan Dax meant to find that person sitting on easy street, including the mysterious person who was the last person to see her friend alive. Because there was one thing the citizens of Sloughville where unaware, Susan Dax was dangerous in her own way.


About the Author

Stevenson Mukoro was born in Lewisham, London, on June 26 and grew up in the middle-class suburb of Ughelli. He is the son of Samuel and Rose Mukoro. He has two older siblings, Macdonald and Regina, and two younger siblings, Tina and Kingsley. From an early age, he wanted to be a professional pilot because he often envisioned the beauty of the world from the air. In high school, however, he developed two other passions that would define his life: a chance encounter with Peter O'Donnell and crashing the principal's car. Crashing the car put paid to a piloting career. A visit to the library during an Easter vacation in 1999 and meeting the late Mr O'Donnell stirred his interest in writing. That and his brother’s death inspired him to write stories with a host of characters and long tenses. Stevenson first came to the attention of British readers when he won a two consecutive young poetry awards for excellence. Today he is slowly becoming one of England’s acclaimed vivid adventure writers. He communicates to his readers a deep interest in backstage political theories. Disagreeing with the established order that espionage anecdotes are on a decline, he believes that the spying game has become too established or commercialized to be over and that there is “much more to spying than is normally acknowledged.” He has degrees in business computing and administration but prefers the task of writing instead of an undemanding business office. After the July 7 bombings in London, Stevenson wrote many articles about war, terrorism, and the clash of democratic Western societies with fundamentalist Muslim ones. A reporter once wrote, “His clarity of vision on the local impact of terrorist threat is alarming.” He adds, “Terrorism is terrible business and at times it could rejuvenate a society, but more often than not, it destroys.” Stevenson is avid enthusiast of unknown heroes whose contributions are hidden in the annals of secret documents or power-hungry officials. He believes his heroes should have communion with tea in the morning, shoot the villain in the head during lunch, and still be able to read a bedtime story in the evening to a loved one. Similar views that one of his fictional heroines, Susan Dax, expresses. His fictional books are expressively imaginative. Stevenson says, “I’ve always been a big fan of Lara Croft and Modesty Blasé depictions. I figured it was time for a new heroine to take the stage, take our minds of the near ugliness of the world. Enter Susan Dax, a girl lacking nothing, needing nothing, but doing her utmost to do anything in order to find the truth. Such passion is hard to come by.” He writes his best-selling adventure tales in a cottage overlooking the foothills of Bridlington, Yorkshire. Steven is the 2010 recipient of the Book Foundation Medal for Distinguished Letters. For more information about his books, visit Xilbris.com.
