The Lucy Effect


The Lucy Effect is a fast-moving story set in the early part of the First World War. In May 1915, the sinking by the Germans of the British ocean liner RMS Lusitania—or Lucy, as she was affectionately known—had consequences far beyond the tragic death of its crew and passengers. The sinking led to riots in Liverpool with xenophobic mobs intent on avenging the deaths of seamen and passengers. In this story, a father and son of German origin get caught up in this situation and find themselves separated in traumatic circumstances. The race is on for them to be re united. But is this going to happen? The odds are stacked against them. Will the help of a charming Irish entrepreneur and exotic Hong Kong detective be enough as the father escapes from an internment camp on the Isle of Man and the boy finds himself incarcerated in an orphanage in Liverpool under the influence of a violent man with a terrible secret?
