James Minter about this book: The Unexpected Consequences of Iron Overload is a spoof thriller with a serious message. Iron overload is a genetic disorder where individuals absorb too much iron from their diet. It affects 1 in 8 people. It's an insidious condition creeping up on individuals with no apparent symptoms, just a diverse range of signs like tiredness, lethargy, mood swings, and depression. These could be almost anything. Only when long term damage has occurred do people seek medical help. The book uses humor to raise awareness of the condition, and the profits from sales are going to the Haemochromatosis Society.
The main protagonist, Jimmy, has the condition. His absorption of iron is so extreme he has become magnetic. His condition has come to the notice of the KGB who think he has paranormal powers and wish to investigate his condition. Setting a honey trap with Shelia, a local cafe owner, they want to entice him to their safe-house. The CIA have different ideas and are determined to stop them.
