Acerca del libro
This is the story of the campaign to topple the secret society that rules the world of engineering, and destroy the secretive, mysterious book of ages - the mysterious Eternal Tome, unbeknownst to the world, that has created the Industrial revolution.
Starring a multitude of historical figures, including Isambard Kingdom Brunel, Daniel Gooch, Robert Brereton and many more, every event in the Great London Conspiracy is informed by real life industrial revolution - with calamity, destruction and arguments interwoven with an otherwise fictional narrative.
This is the secret tale of the age that created our modern way of life. This is a book that may well have you second guessing the reality of the Victorian era and those that built it.
Written over a three year period with intensive research, the Great London Conspiracy is written to replicate and recapture the tone of the age - grease, stray bolts and all, through the eyes of a young engineer thrust into a situation he can't quite understand - revolving around Brunel's latest and greatest achievement.
The Great London Conspiracy is a must read for those fascinated by conspiracies, societies and the Victorian world - not to mention the mysteries deep within that smoke, clag and oil that shrouded the city of London.

Born in the tumbledown, post industrial wastelands of Wakefield in West Yorkshire, Jordan Mooney has always sat a little out of sync with the modern world, preferring to indulge himself in a smoking, grime riddled world of Victorian England. Infuriated by the clean, "splendid" image British imperialism has placed upon the Industrial age, his work and his interest has dedicated itself to preserving the more disturbing aspects of a society based upon extreme capitalism and ammorality. This, coupled with his fascination for Isambard Kingdom Brunel, steam power and the most enormous projects of 1850s England brought about The Great London Conspiracy - now available as an ebook after three years of work and a successful, quiet launch as a self published physical hardback. He now lives in a flat built into a Victorian iron magnate's mansion in Dewsbury, surrounded by antiques, two cats and his beloved girlfriend.
