Andrew Lowe

Author Andrew Loweabout this book: The Medusa Conspiracy is a thriller that opens in New York. The story involves the suspicious death of a young journalist that eventually leads another investigative journalist to North Korea. While there he meets an enigmatic female officer, that meeting changes his life in a strange and unexpected way.

Back in New York the Twin Towers are destroyed and whilst this event has major international ramifications, the involvement of North Korea is discounted in Washington; however it comes to light that they are involved in a serious operation to undermine the US economy, at one of the most difficult points in its history.

All based on true facts, the story twists and weaves its way between truth and plausible fiction to make an exciting novel with a love story, international counterfeiting and an unexpected end. The book asks questions of American foreign policy towards a defiant adversary, but with a nuclear arsenal, the sustainability of the North Korean way of life and the choices a person makes when pushed to the limit between loyalty to country or family.

• Authors Note

I was inspired to write this book after a little known fact about the involvement of North Korea in a major subversive international operation. After researching life in general in North Korea and other events in The Unites States, I had the basic building blocks of a story. I have tried to make the story as plausible as possible by framing it inside real events and facts, making the characters as real as possible and how they would react given certain circumstances.

The original title was changed from The Pendant, to the Medusa Conspiracy because I eventually re-wrote part of the story, the title is now more relevant to the final version and together with the front cover gives the book the right feel that I wanted.

Writing the book, in fact any writing is a great learning experience, if you really love writing you do it because of the satisfaction it gives you and the emotion it engenders in yourself, if it becomes successful, well that is a bonus. Like all things the best motivation is always from the heart, seeking the return of emotional satisfaction and a sense of personal achievement. Naturally you hope people will respect and enjoy what you have written and encourage you to continue the path you have chosen.

 The Medusa seduction

Andrew Lowe's book was a pleasure to read and entirely compulsive. I am fascinated by the Korean situation so that was the first draw for me, but what made it all the more compelling was the way the writer ensured his fiction is so carefully interwoven with facts that it becomes entirely convincing.

I shall certainly purchase the next in the series and hope that Mr. Lowe's success will convince him to pursue a long and productive writing career. I am a very fussy reader, not easily tempted by new authors, but on this occasion my faith in giving this title a try was amply rewarded by such a good read. Well done and keep it up!
