Gary has recently completed THE CHRYSANTHEMUM THRONE, a remarkably well-written colorful, dramatic account of the workings and inner sanctum of Japanese life and culture during Emperor Hirohito’s reign in The Imperial Court. The story follows the emergence of Japan as a growing super power before and after WW II seen through the eyes of Hirohito's most trusted companion, ‘Dr. Taki Akira’. This is a marvelous thought-provoking tale, rich in fact and historical background.
THE IKON Greek island thriller
THE IKON is an exciting, action-packed thriller, which takes place on the jet-set island of Myconos, surrounding the seedy world of art and antiquities dealers and smugglers.
Riding on the huge success of ‘The DaVinci Code’ and action scenes of the hit movie, 'Romancing the Stone' with Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner, “'THE IKON” is a modern day “Maltese Falcon” style adventure-thriller, which evolves around a group of international antiquities thieves living on Mykonos, Greece.
In this fascinating story, the lead and main character, Garth Hanson, a down on his luck artist, is blackmailed into making a copy of a world famous icon in Greece, and becomes inadvertently involved in a dizzying sphere of international intrigue, passionate love and brutal murder. The colourful cast of characters all come to life on the exotic jet-set island of Mykonos for the suspense-filled ending, where all characters converge for one purpose alone --- To steal a gem-studded icon worth millions of dollars… The twist is, that there's something more to the icon than jewels and diamonds- something of international importance and consequence, that could very well change the course of the world as we knew it!
This is a classic tale with all the intrigue abut to be a major block-buster film.
