Farewell Olympus by Jack Messenger

Farewell Olympus is, I think, my best work so far. I hope you find it witty, intriguing and even a little poignant. The story it tells of rivalry and family tensions is liberally spiced with romance and mystery. The location is central Paris, so it’s a young Englishman abroad who thinks he knows his way around the culture, but who learns there is more to life than he thought.’ Jack Messenger
