What an absolutely incredible yarn, I read this authors series the Stanton Chronicles and missed this, found a paperback on ebay, the authors name brought my attention to it. This author is a brilliant poet. A blues guitar player with a wealthy father is the chosen one to fight the battle of Armageddon at the turn of the millennium. He losses his childhood sweetheart murdered by a drug overdose and moves on to become the prime minister of Australia. Hidden from the dark forces of evil as a humble blues guitar player his adversaries can't find him until its too late. The author is obviously a musician and wrote the work in respect of blues guitar players, the last line says it all for them. He even manages to fit an American Second World War battleship, Nuns, gold miners, recording companies, politicians, union members, police, you name it and its in there, what a colossal story. I'm reading it a second time it is so entertaining.
