Free Download of Historical Novel This Easter Weekend

I have  arranged for my novel "Part an Irishman" to be available via a free download from Amazon over the Easter weekend. This is to say thanks for all of the marvelous support and good will that I have received from my friends.

In 1820, Lieutenant John Turner Flinn R.N stood in the witness box in the House of Lords. The Queen of Great Britain and Ireland was in the dock on a charge of adultery. At the time, one might only obtain a divorce if a charge of adultery was admitted or proven. King George IV wanted to divorce Caroline and strip her of her title.

Flinn was called as a witness in her defense because he had captained Caroline’s yacht for a cruise round the Mediterranean. As a Royal Navy officer, Flinn was considered a reliable witness compared to the other witnesses, who were mostly of foreign extraction and questionable character. Caroline’s barrister asked Flinn what his nationality was, presumably to establish his credibility and Flinn replied “I am born English but am part an Irishman", hence my title.

In the witness stand, Flinn admitted to working for the British Intelligence Services. Flinn later married a woman who was reputed to be the daughter of Queen Caroline.

However, in1840, an Old Bailey judge sentenced him to transportation to Van Diemen’s Land, for the term of his natural life for defrauding the Chelsea Hospital. My novel's premise is that Flinn did this for patriotic reasons rather than personal gain

Flinn is the subject of my novel, and I hope you enjoy it.

Warm thanks to my American friends who took the trouble to download the novel. As we say in Australia, "your blood's worth bottling"

Hi Jean

The success of the free issue took me by surprise so I have decided to "rebrand" as T.S. Flynn. I have also dropped the price of the Theo Flynn Javelin Man Ticket of leave to 99 cents so that people like yourself can access the book without price being a deterrent. Hope you enjoy the book.
