Nationally renowned journalist Peter Owen is understandably bewildered when he receives two letters from his recently deceased wife Gwen a few weeks after her funeral. In the second letter she asks him to expose Matthias Kronau, an eminent German university lecturer and her lover from twenty years earlier, as a clandestine pornographic film maker and academic charlatan.

When a cautiously optimistic Peter travels to Germany to meet the suave, charismatic, self-styled occultist and womaniser Matthias, why do his attempts to carry out her mysterious request lead to lifechanging outcomes for everyone involved?

A Burning Matter of Completion is a novel about obsession and its destructive effects on each of the five principal characters.

In essence it is a complex illustration of how individuals project themselves and deceive and manipulate one another.


  • I really enjoyed reading your latest tome and, unlike many books I have read this year, yours contains ideas and thoughts which I retain. I can’t claim to understand all of the undercurrents, but there is a powerful tension keeping the story flowing and the reader’s attention. Peter’s rejection of Charlotte, and his refusal to return Ivy’s photos shows how much he has been damaged by the experience, and just wants out of the whole nightmare. 

  • A very accomplished and thought-provoking story which reflects the author's knowledge and understanding of the complexities of Goethe's Faust. 

  • I have just finished reading A Burning Matter of Completion - started it yesterday. You did say it was darker than your first book and I did find it so. It did hold my interest and I did want to know how it unfolded. I began to 'dislike' Gwen and thought her idea of unmasking Matthias's wealth just sour grapes rather than outrage at anyone peddling hard pornography. 

  • A Burning Matter of Completion is a really good read. Gripping! 

  • Although my knowledge of Faust etc is negligible, I really enjoyed "A Burning Matter of Completion", [with] its twists and turns, the characteristics of the people and the unresolved issue of Marcus' father.
