Synopsis:

When WWII ended, the allies discovered that a huge amount of gold bullion plundered by Nazi Reichsmarschall Hermann Goering had gone missing. Some believed the gold had been hidden in a train box car in Poland. Others that it was secreted in Lake Toplitz in the Austrian Alps. And a few thought it was buried in the Republic of Ireland, which was neutral during the war.

When ex-IRA soldier Ructions O’Hare stumbles on a piece of Nazi memorabilia once owned by Goering, he begins to think that those who suspect the gold was in Ireland just might be on to something.

But for Ructions to return to Ireland is easier said than done. For a start, the IRA is after him for not paying them a cut from a huge bank robbery he carried out in Belfast. And then there’s the Neo-Nazis, who believe that Goering’s gold rightfully belongs to them, and who are happy to kill anyone who gets in their way.

And as Ructions gathers clues to the gold’s location and, as his many adversaries realize he’s getting closer, it’s as if a noose is tightening around his neck…

BLOG TOUR: Fran Dorricott’s Mini Spoiler-Free Fan Cast for The Final Child

Hi everyone! Today is my stop on the blog tour for The Final Child and I’m thrilled to be sharing a guest post from Fran Dorricott with her thoughts on a spoiler-free fan cast. I hope you enjoy!

I have to confess that I’m not normally very good at “Fan Casts” when it comes to my own books, but The Final Child is something of an exception to the rule. I have a very clear image of most of the characters in the book, and I’d love to share a few, plus a few images of the settings through the novel, with you today.

This is entirely spoiler-free. I’ve focused on protagonists as well as locations/settings.

Erin Chambers:

Erin is one of the protagonists of The Final Child. She was abducted along with her brother when she was a child by a serial killer known in the press as The Father. Erin was found days later on her own in the woods. She had no knowledge of the whereabouts of her brother and sadly could not provide the police with any usable information that might help locate him. She also remains The Father’s only living victim. 

Imogen Poots has the perfect vibe for Erin, who is brave despite her fear, and reckless in her desire to prove herself after years struggling with her guilt over what happened to her and her brother. Imogen Poots has a certain vulnerability about her, doesn’t she?
