WEST WINFORD INCIDENT

JOHN PARKER    Book Number: 84958    Product format: Paperback

The author is a dear customer of ours and describes his own novel as 'in the style of Neville Shute.' Dave and Sue Harrison are beginning their new life and Dave, a metallurgist, is taking up a new appointment. In contrast, his wife's loneliness is exacerbated by her husband's single-minded approach to his work and she vows to act. A new friendship blossoms with Pam, a larger than life character, and Sue finds herself led into the emerging hobby of genealogy. A welcome distraction, it does little to ease the marital tension that continues to intensify due to a catastrophic failure of a turbine at a Hampshire power station. As Dave's stress levels are pushed to the limit, he is left to work tirelessly to defend his job, putting his marriage, future and the lives of others on the line. Because of the author's background, there are technical aspects of both the methodology of engineering plant failure and the intricacies of genealogical research in the pre-computer age. The main theme is based on the real-life failure at Hinkley Point 'A' Power Station in 1969. 244pp in paperback.
