A Stir of Ash and Embers

By WP van der Merwe

Thriller, Literary fiction | eBook


People’s lives begin at different times. Most people don’t start living at birth, but only once something happens to shape their personalities. It can be something small, a life-changing single big event, or a combination of events and interactions. For Adam Carver, it was killing the woman he loved. Carver’s second birth was a baptism of blood. It changed him into a killer, the only life he’s known for the last thirty-six years. But now, for the first time, he is thinking of change, a way out, and it has to do with a certain lady he met in Los Angeles. And then there’s Daniel… working side by side with a psychopath doesn’t help in answering any existential questions. Haunted by his past, living a life he didn’t choose, Carver is called to Africa to kill a President. Then all goes horribly wrong when a civil war breaks out and he is caught in the middle. Faced with new challenges, new allies and enemies from all sides, Carver’s will and resolve are truly tested for the first time. Will Africa offer redemption or merely send him spiraling evermore into darkness? Gritty and fast-paced, A Stir of Ash and Embers, is the first thrilling novel in a series of novels featuring Adam Carver, an anti-hero protagonist.

African born and bred, WP van der Merwe tells it like it is... Ex-teacher, entrepreneur and all-round stirrer with a wicked sense of humour, WP van der Merwe doesn't believe in normal. He likes to think that his writing reflects this.
