"A cinematic novel. Mal Foster's 'An Invisible Nemesis' reads as if it should be optioned at the table of a Hollywood scriptwriters’ meeting." - Glenn Louis, Publicist
AN INVISIBLE NEMESIS ~ PRESS CUTS
An Invisible Nemesis: A tale of conspiracy and murder on Gozo
An Invisible Nemesis– is the title of the latest novel by Mal Foster. A tale of conspiracy and murder predominately set on the island of Gozo.
It tells the story of a Princess Diana look-a-like who goes missing in Venice, Italy, in 1997, just a few short weeks before the death of the real princess.
The book’s protagonist, investigative journalist Jack Compton is on the case following the brutal murder of his former colleague Suzanne Camilleri.
Mal Foster said about his latest novel, “My priority was to write something completely different from what I had done before. I also wanted to write a novel that was against the grain, something that would separate my story out from other so-called conspiracy theories.”
Mal Foster was born in Farnham, Surrey 1956, and now lives in Knaphill near Woking.
He produced his successful debut novel, The Asylum Soul, in 2015. His second book, Fly Back and Purify, a paranormal drama, was published in 2017.
Also an established poet, his work has appeared worldwide in a number of anthologies, newspapers, magazines and across the internet.
A former local journalist, he is an avid fan of progressive rock music but turns to the late Canadian singer/songwriter and poet Leonard Cohen when pressed about who and what inspires him.
An Invisible Nemesis is available in paperback and Kindle from Amazon.co.uk and Lulu.com.

"Having just completed my thirdnovel, An Invisible Nemesis I think now is the perfect time to look back and reflect. Indeed, if someone had said to me just five short years ago that I would sit down and write a novel, I would have politely laughed at such a wild remark," says author Mal Foster.
"Fortunately, despite my early reservations, writing, publishing and then finally promoting my books has been an engaging and enjoyable experience which despite a few minor knock-backs has given me the confidence to carry on writing and ultimately produce my latest work.
The concept for An Invisible Nemesis remained on the back-burner for quite a while as I concentrated on other aspects of my writing. My first novel, The Asylum Soul is a historical tale of incarceration set in 1929 while my second offering,'Fly Back and Purify'is a paranormal drama set around a mysterious incident at a railway station in 1994.
Set predominately in present day Malta, well, Gozo to be precise, my latest novel is a story of conspiracy and murder. My priority was to write something completely different to what I had done before. I also wanted to write a novel that was against the grain, something that would separate my story out from other so-called conspiracy theories.
Only time will tell if the story works, but early feedback from professionals who have had privy to the final draft of the manuscript prior to publication, have used such words as “addictive” and “awesome” in their reviews and that’s encouraging!"
An Invisible Nemesis is available now from Amazon in paperback and Kindle formats.
