February 2024 Book of the Month

In his first solo fiction outing as author, Sam Sedgeman, of Adventures with Trains fame, has produced a quite extraordinary tour de force which combines an intricately plotted classic ‘closed room’ mystery, with some truly mind-bending science and maths, fascinating facts about our democracy, London landmarks and how the world measures time, in one exciting package!

The mystery involves the inexplicable disappearance of Isaac’s father, The Chief Horologist, who is responsible for Big Ben, on the night the clocks go back and as the debate over the New Time law is about to go to parliament. All that is left is a smashed pocket watch and a cryptic message.

Isaac teams up with new friend Hattie, the clever, confident, and rebellious daughter of Isaac’s godfather, the Speaker of the House. Together they embark on a rooftop-navigating quest across London, solving codes and puzzles as they go. They uncover a dastardly plot at the heart of government and it’s a frantic race to save both his father and the country and time itself!

Packed with excitement, drama, witty dialogue, and ingenious and relatable main characters, I am this will surely grow an army of fans ready for the next instalment of Isaac Turner Investigates.
