Discrete Reversal

By Argy Stevens

Literary fiction, General fiction, Romance, Travel | eBook


A CRETAN HOLIDAY CHANGES A SUCCESSFUL WOMAN’S LIFE. On their first evening in a luxury Elounda hotel, two forty-something, single professionals bump into Cretan Kharilaos. Unable to say his name, they settle for Harry. Judy quite fancies him but he seems to prefer Caroline. In a fit of displaced pique, Judy soon suggests he could be a charlatan and renames him Harry the ‘Louse’, a slang word for a despicable man who is devious and scheming with women. Yet Caroline is drawn to the well-read, property rich, crisis-hit gentleman, who she believes doesn’t deserve the unkindly epithet. When Harry introduces Niko to Judy, the name Nick o’Louse surfaces, but it is quickly forgotten and the women agree to stop wrangling and shelve the ‘louse’ nicknames, unless... Then Harry suffers a major setback, giving Caroline a chance to capitalise. Just who is the innocent abroad? Will Harry get his hands on Caroline’s hidden assets before another, or will she seize and doctor his family jewels?

Somerset born, with more than 20 years aeronautical/defence experience, followed by stints in different education sectors. I enjoy bringing these and my pilot experiences, plus a love of all things mechanical, into my writing. My first exposure to `writing` was as editor of an apprentice magazine, not a stellar beginning, but it fired a beneficial interest throughout my career. As a retired polyglot and polymath, I remain just able to bring a wealth of experience from my 60-odd years to the world of authorship.
