The Obedience of Fools

A secret long hidden, the record tucked away in a notebook, and someone thinks that it is the key to a valuable commodity.
Hidden away, spirited away when steam disappeared and diesels took command of the rails. Alfred Burke knows the details and they are valuable, in his head or encrypted into his notebook is irrelevant.

About Martyn Taylor

Yorkshire born, in Sheffield, now living in Rotherham.
Married to Anne, and living in a quirky house with a lot of stairs and an enormous amount of books.

Started writing more years ago than I want to remember, inspired by Ian Fleming, John Buchan, Alistair Maclean and Jack Higgins. Working in longhand, by typewriter and then with an old laptop and a printer. “One day I’m going to write a novel” arrived and in August 2002 became “Today’s the day!" A beginning, an end and the urge to write. The result was ICELINE, a thriller about abduction, smuggling and dodgy diving in Western Scotland.

CONTROL:ESCAPE is the second novel about Steel and the characters at The Grange, revealing more of the place and the people who pass through its doors. Both now published here at Smashwords. There will be more!

WHAT YOU ASK FOR was the Nanowrimo entry for 2012; reaching the 50,000 word target in 29 days and carrying on to finish the story. Currently undergoing proof-reading and editing prior to submitting it for the Premium catalogue here at Smashwords.

The fourth novel in The Grange series THE OBEDIENCE OF FOOLS draws its name from a quotation by Douglas Bader and weaves its way around the Urban myth of the Strategic Steam Reserve.

Fascinated by the human stories behind history, the intmate aspects of great events. Myths and legends, folklore and intrigued by urban myths.

I enjoy a film with a good story, Matrix (all three parts), V for Vendetta – the final scene outside parliament with the masked crowds; Dambusters; Where Eagles Dare – Richard Burton on the radio with “Broadsword calling Danny Boy”

About the Series: The Grange
..An old country house, comfortable with its history, estate and secrets; old and new; some to be unfolded and others - never to be told?



The people who live, work and visit; guests who cross the threshold through the iron bound oak doors, and the others, who slip quietly in and out by another way, adding their secrets to the history already soaked into the ancient walls.
