Blog Tour: The Phoenix Project – Michelle Kidd*


How long can the past remain buried?
A simple message in a local newspaper. A set of highly sensitive documents left in the back of a London black cab. Both events collide to cause Isabel Faraday’s life to be turned upside down.

Growing up believing her parents died in a car crash when she was five, Isabel learns the shocking truth; a truth that places her own life in danger by simply being a Faraday.

Detective Inspector Jack MacIntosh of the Metropolitan Police races against time to save her, and at the same time unravels long forgotten secrets involving MI5, MI6, the KGB and NASA.

Secrets that have lain dormant for twenty years. Secrets worth killing for. With kidnap, murder and suicides stretching across four continents, just what is the Phoenix Project?
The Phoenix Project is the first Detective Inspector Jack MacIntosh novel.If you like a gripping page turner, with plenty of surprising twists, buy The Phoenix Project today to discover its secrets.

Michelle Kidd is a self-published author known for the Detective Inspector Jack MacIntosh series of novels.

Michelle qualified as a lawyer in the early 1990s and spent the best part of ten years practising civil and criminal litigation.

But the dream to write books was never far from her mind and in 2008 she began writing the manuscript that would become the first DI Jack MacIntosh novel – The Phoenix Project. The book took eighteen months to write, but spent the next eight years gathering dust underneath the bed.

In 2018 Michelle self-published The Phoenix Project and had not looked back since. There are currently three DI Jack MacIntosh novels, with a fourth in progress.

Michelle works full time for the NHS and lives in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk. She enjoys reading, wine and cats – not necessarily in that order.

My thoughts:

This is a fast paced thriller, racing back and forth across the Channel to Paris from London and Cambridge, with implications stretching to the US and Russia as the mysterious villain attempts to destroy all traces of the Phoenix Project and net himself a tidy sum in the process.

DI MacIntosh is tasked with protecting a very bewildered Isabel Faraday, who isn’t sure who to believe or trust, from these unknown criminals, who will stop at nothing to complete their aims, and would happily kill to get what they want.

As he races against time to unravel the truth and the body count rises, can he prevent more tragedy?

A clever, twisting and involving story, with great characters and a cracking plot. Oh, and it involves space!
