Présentation de l'éditeur

Are you ready for a thrilling new take on climate change that will rattle your cage? Call it sci fi, call it cli fi, call it anything you want but make sure you don't miss the knock you down wisdom of Double Bind.....

In the sci fi thriller Double Bind, successful writer Raymond Bridges must unravel a mystery that goes to the heart of his being and face apparently irresolvable doubts about his identity, set off by encountering a perfect double of himself.

It's a thrilling journey that leads him to question so much of what he finds in the world around him - even the loyalty of those he knows, including his love, Victoria.

What he uncovers is a conspiracy that shakes the world he knows to its foundations and asks key questions about how we live now.

What readers are saying about Double Bind

'One of the most thought-provoking thrillers I've read in a long time.'

'I liked Bridges. I also liked his gorgeous girlfriend Victoria. I wanted them to win. I wanted Bridges to succeed in his mission, once he discovers what it is.'

'The storyline and the characters are so compelling that you're drawn in from the start. The whole doppelganger idea was so unique and unusual.'

'What a fantastical si-fi told as a cautionary tale - I loved it! This story is fast-paced, extremely well-written and extraordinarily different - one that gripped me from the beginning to the very end.'

'This easy-to-understand-and-follow Sci-Fi / Action / Thriller / Adventure / Romance wondrously expands your imagination. This is what a truly great author can achieve and Seb Kirby fits the bill.'

'Hooks you early on.... it's hard to stop reading. An excellent story and really well told.'

'An engaging narrator with a nice line in challenging humour and moments of real emotion.'

'Thought provoking and exciting ..... chillingly believable.'

'I like a thriller like this one where the plot takes you for a wild ride but leaves no loose ends in the grand finale.'

En savoir plus sur l'auteur

I was raised with books - my grandfather ran a mobile library in Birmingham and my parents inherited a random selection of the books. They weren't much interested in them; the books were piled up in a box room, gathering dust. I would disappear in there and resurrect much used classics - Zane Gray 'Riders of the Purple Sage', H G Wells 'The Invisible Man', Charles Dickens 'A Tale of Two Cities' and more obscure stuff that I don't now recall. I was hooked.

There was gap, a long gap, until I was lucky enough to find an inspirational school teacher. He donated his own books to make a lending library in a stock cupboard off the classroom. Kids queued to borrow the books. Except these were the classics - Franz Kafka 'Metamorphosis' and 'The Trial', George Orwell '1984' and 'Animal Farm', Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn 'One Day In The Life of Ivan Denisovich', Ray Bradbury 'Fahrenheit 451', Boris Pasternak 'Dr Zhivago', Arthur Koestler 'Darkness At Noon', Vladimir Nabokov 'Pale Fire', Ken Kesey 'One Flew Over the Cookoo's Nest', Aldous Huxley 'Brave New World'.............

I've been an avid reader ever since.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Double good! 4 septembre 2012
Format:Format Kindle
Having read and enjoyed Mr. Kirby's first novel, I was fairly certain his second book would be entertaining also. I wasn't expecting it to be so completely different though. He has created a unique tale of doppelgangers who body snatch earthlings after their own world has been destroyed. It follows one entity's journey from body to body as he tries to relate his `truth' in order to warn the earth and save it from a hostile takeover.

With twists and turns aplenty, I often found myself confused and compelled to keep reading to figure out what was happening. I was first annoyed that the protagonist told his story in the present tense, but finally figured out it was because he only lived in the `here and now' - and he had difficulty understanding why everyone else lived so much in the past. There are several underlying messages such as this one that will make you ponder your own existence.

An intriguing and creative thriller, Mr Kirby has penned a worthy second book. Fabulous job!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An excellent story and really well told 2 juillet 2012
Par Ignite - Publié sur Amazon.com

Seb Kirby has taken a new direction in his second novel. It is at heart a deeply intriguing psychological thriller.
I would say it leans towards science fiction although it still contains elements of mystery and murder as in his debut novel Take No More (The murder mystery thriller). Imagine not only the sort of identity theft where someone steals your credit card and passwords but where s/he effectively becomes you. The physical resemblance is so close it fools your nearest and dearest. This is not Sci-fi in the tentacled green monsters or whizzy machines sense but it concerns the potential destruction of our planet at our own hands and those who wish to move in and make use of it.

I began by suspecting the narrator, Raymond Bridges, of concocting the story for his own ends but as the book progressed I found him a sympathetic character and was really rooting for him. Had I been a nail-biter I'd have been up to my elbows by about 85%. The chapters are short so it's tempting just to read another... and another! The book is narrated by a character who is not familiar with the use of the past tense and initially this takes a little getting used to. It doesn't hinder the flow of the story though and I found it an effective ploy for distancing him from others.

This is a book that hooks you early on and as the plot unfolds, it's hard to stop reading. An excellent story and really well told.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent! A must read 10 juillet 2012

I finished Seb Kirby's new novel Double Bind in one sitting - I literally could not put it down. The storyline and the characters are so compelling that you're drawn in from the start. The whole doppelganger idea was so unique and unusual and Seb used it to great affect throughout the book. Put this one on your must read list if you like a good, tight, well-written thriller with a few exotic twists and turns.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Should appear in Sci-FI section 8 août 2012

Enjoyable but a bit hard to follow at times. Explanation of events and process are a bit foggy at times. Tale moves at a good pace and keeps the reader's interest.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Mystery slash thriller meets sci-fi 3 septembre 2013
Par Vickie McKeehan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
In Double Bind, author Seb Kirby combines mystery slash thriller with science fiction in a puzzling whodunit type plot that made me feel like I was reading Ray Bradbury.

When the main character, a successful writer named Raymond Bridges, bumps into his double, the story takes off and never lets up. With his sexy love interest, English professor, Victoria Bletchley, Bridges and Victoria must try to outsmart London gangsters and corporate villains and answer the main question. Who is Raymond Bridges really?

Mr. Kirby kept me entertained from beginning to end with plot twists, murders, motives and bad guys.

It isn't easy for a writer to cross genres, but I believe Mr. Kirby succeeded in delivering a fast-paced read you won't soon be able to forget. Double Bind will stay with you.
