2150 is the year that Dorset author Janine Pulford has set her fifth book, Cane Elephant, in a Britain that has suppressed the growing influence of Islam, which now predominates throughout Europe. There has been a Third World War, elephants are extinct and memory washing techniques have been developed to clear the minds of criminals and produce slave-like Ekeeds who question nothing, yet repeat themselves three times over.
Janine, from West Moors, uses this thought-provoking background when entering the mind of a young woman who wakes from a coma. She doesn’t recognise her name, her looks, or the person who claims to be her mother and takes her ‘home’. But she does relate to the four fingers on her left hand. Feeling isolated, tension builds as her new identity tries to take hold and she escapes to go in search of her past.
Will meeting Steve along the way cause more havoc? And is Zawal a stranger or the man she once loved? Through all the anguish and self-analysis, the one constant that keeps her moving forward is her search for a treasured cane elephant. She knows when she finds him, her true identity will be revealed, but will she be ready for the shock of knowing?
“Even if futuristic isn’t your type of genre, Cane Elephant is more about the unravelling of a mind and has a very dark side,” says Janine who, despite having achieved close to 10,000 downloads, admits her novels have never sold sufficiently to allow her to give up her day job as an editor and magazine publisher. “But I would love one of my stories to fly. Cane Elephant is a novella rather than a novel, so it is a bit shorter. Maybe less will be more in this instance.”
“Gripping. I read this in one sitting.” Best selling author Della Galton
The ebook can be downloaded priced £2.39 from Amazon, where all Janine’s other titles, including her popular romantic thriller The Whispering Waters, are listed. Its sequel Flyaway Angel is now underway.
