Attic Whispers Brought to You from Europe, Part 2 [October 2019 Edition]


Greetings from Europe!

The journey continues.


I am writing to you from the train from Vienna to Budapest. Our journey from St Petersburg to Budapest is reaching its final stage. But before I tell you about that, I must share with you some of the exciting places we visited along the way.

After leaving Russia, we travelled briefly to Helsinki to attend a Sibelius concert and then returned to Denmark to meet with a Danish book club in the colourful Tivoli Gardens to talk about the publication of the next book.

The next stop was Norway to look at some Viking ships of course!


Coming into Oslo Harbour in the morning.


The journey then continued through Germany to Berlin to visit some of the fabulous museums. Needless to say, this involved some more research and meeting readers.

This is the awe inspiring market gate of Miletus. I visited the ancient ruins of Miletus in Turkey during an archaeological tour a few years ago, and wanted to see the famous market gate which is in a Berlin museum would you believe! Here it is.

No visit to Berlin would be complete without visiting the stunning Reichstag building with its breathtaking glass cupola.

After leaving Berlin we travelled south to Bavaria to meet some more readers, and spend some time in the Alps. I never miss visiting this picturesque part of Europe when I find myself in this lovely corner of the world.

This was followed by another highlight – Salzburg – where an Austrian book club had arranged a couple of wonderful concerts for us to attend. One in particular was quite spectacular: an organ recital in the Salzburg Cathedral; inspirational!




And then, after almost seven weeks of travel through Europe, we reached our final destination: breathtaking BUDAPEST where we were warmly welcomed by friends and readers eagerly awaiting the publication of the next book!




But now, my friends, before we begin the long journey home to Australia, I have a little surprise for you: some exciting information about the next book which, as you know, is book 5 in the Jack Rogan Mysteries series, and which is about to be released!

First, the title: “The Curious Case Of The Missing Head.” Intrigued? I hope so! Here’s a brief description of the book to pique your interest:

A headless body on a boat. An international conspiracy. Can he survive a controversial scientific discovery?

Esteemed Australian journalist Jack Rogan is on a mission to solve the disappearance of his mother in the 70s. But when a friend needs help rescuing a kidnapped world-renowned astrophysicist, he doesn’t hesitate. Struggling with more questions than answers, his investigation leads them aboard a hellish hospital ship, where instead of finding the kidnap victim, he’s confronted with a decapitated corpse.

As the search intensifies, Jack bumps up against diabolical cartels with hidden agendas. And when his research reveals dubious experiments, a criminal on death row, and a shocking revelation about his mother’s fate, he must uncover how it’s all linked.

Can Jack unravel the twisted connections and catch the scientist’s killer, or will the next obituary published be his own?

The Curious Case of the Missing Head is the fifth standalone novel in the page-turning Jack Rogan Mysteries series. If you like meticulous theoretical science, exponentially increasing intensity, and astonishing surprises, then you’ll love Gabriel Farago’s hair-raising medical thriller.

The next item of interest I would like to share with you is the all important book cover. I hope you like it.  Here it is:



I trust you enjoyed our journey through Europe which has taken us through nine countries and to such exciting places as Amsterdam, Tallinn in Estonia, St Petersburg in Russia, Helsinki, Oslo, Kopenhagen, Berlin, Salzburg and Budapest to name just a few.
