More news, no ads


UPPER Lambourn author Robert Cort has had his second book published.

The Challenge follows on immediately from where the The Opportunity ended and continues to chart the life of Ian Caxton and his heart-pumping adventures as he pursues his two ambitions of greater freedom and to accumulate riches beyond his wildest dreams.

"We see an art world that is full of pitfalls, mysteries and risk. It is a place where paintings can be bought and sold for millions of pounds. Fortunes can be made – and lost. For those whose ambition is to accumulate wealth beyond their wildest dreams, expert knowledge, confidence, bravery and deep pockets are certainly needed."

This is another page-turning thriller where Ian Caxton is now being tested by fake paintings, a financial gamble on the artwork of a black slave, his wife’s life-changing news and a series of mysterious emails that suggest Ian’s being watched. More dramatic events, mental conflicts and soul searching decisions. How will Ian cope with all these extra demands? This is the big question.

The Challenge is published by Authoright/Clink Street Publishing and is now on sale in paperback or ebook/Kindle formats. Both books are available at White Horse Books, Marlborough, most other local bookshops or via booksellers online including Amazon.

Having enjoyed writing stories at junior school, he continued to write short stories as a hobby. However, following retirement from his career in the commercial insurance world and a move to the Lambourn Valley area four years ago, he decided to see if he could write a full length novel.

"My inspiration came from a combination of a fascinating holiday visit to Moscow, buying a book about The Kremlin, reading an article about the secret lives of wealthy Russians living quietly in London and from being an avid viewer of the television programme Fake or Fortune?.
