Congratulations to our author Colin Jaque for receiving recognition for his book, “Striving For Perfection”!

Colin’s research into Egyptian history and his correction of previously held beliefs resulted in his book “Striving for Perfection” which has now been recognised in the USA.

MidWest Book reviews requested a copy and may offer it as a prize in a competition.  This is what they had to say:

Striving for Perfection

9781911090779, $11.99, PB, 148pp, http://www.amazon.com

Synopsis: For 2,500 years academics and historians had concluded that Ramesses II was the Pharaoh of the Exodus account when the Israelites left Egypt. But there was no evidence in support of that theory and every reason to disbelieve it, which led to the observation that the whole story was just a myth.

“Striving for Perfection” by Colin Jaque takes a new look at the historical events and, using all the information available from the Bible and Egyptian record in order to now show what actually happened and when it occurred.

“Striving for Perfection” covers the social, economic and religious concerns that led to the enslavement of the Israelites and the belittling by Moses who goaded a weak and worthless Pharaoh (who was thrust onto the throne by his vicious and dictatorial predecessor) to his eventual death.

“Striving for Perfection” brings alive the Bible story from Joseph to Moses fitting perfectly with the best knowledge we have of the 18th Dynasty Monarchs of Ancient Egypt and goes to proving the truth that the Exodus did take place enabling a date to be put to this crucial event.

Critique: Impressively researched, organized and presented, “Striving for Perfection” is extraordinarily informative with a thoroughly ‘reader friendly’ accessability that will be appreciated by both academia and non-specialist general readers with an interest in the subject. While especially and unreservedly recommended for community, college, and university library collections, it should be noted for personal reading lists that “Striving for Perfection” is also available in a digital book format (Kindle, $4.99).”

Our congratulations to Colin for well deserved recognition.

John Maris – My Encounter with The Great Train Robbery: 55 Years Later, Man Who Discovered Robbers’ Secret Hideout Releases Memoir

Author John Maris’ ‘My Encounter with The Great Train Robbery – How I became a Marked Man’ tells the story of a fifty-year life in the wake of an unexpected yet profound discovery. Maris was the man who found the “Great Train Robbers’” secret hideout, 9781912505227spiraling his life into one of death threats, unwanted global fame and an eventual wrongful perjury charge. This is his story…told with uninhibited honesty.

This is a story of an alert member of the public who had his life and that of his family changed having notified the police of the whereabouts of the hideout of the Great Train Robbers. Within days his notoriety had spread worldwide and this began years of constant pressure, physical threats to him and his family, trauma and anxiety.

He had to take precautions at work in the hope of preventing an attack whilst working alone. Because of his careful detail in the evidence which he gave at the trial he was subjected to an attempt to frame him on a charge of perjury. Eventually he pondered the question, If a similar situation arose, would he act in the same way?

 “Life was simply never the same afterwards,” explains Maris. “What started as me reporting some strange behaviour on Leatherslade Farm to the Police descended into an endless barrage of threats. In fact, I was unable to leave my house without a wooden truncheon, that I felt I had to carry for protection.”

Continuing, “Of course, then the trial came, and I found myself being framed on a charge of perjury. It’s been an interesting five decades since that fateful day, and this is the first time I’ve told the story with such raw honesty and detail. It’s going to answer a lot of questions about my life, and those of the men who were responsible for the most fascinating crime in modern history.”
