Adrian Hall has hit the virtual bestseller list on a computer publishing site with his debut novel. Feng Shui Assassin is a thriller with a twist in which the killer uses alternative therapies to wipe out his victims and keeps the reader guessing. Overall, the 70,000-word book took about four years to complete before Adrian published it as an online ebook on the Smashwords.com website.
The book, priced at £8, is available from Lexicon Books in Douglas and the online bookseller Amazon.
Personal reading tastes include other thrillers and also fantasy writer Joe Abercrombie. His day job is in the finance sector, but his career history is eclectic, to say the least. As well as graduating in business management from the University of East London, he has been a policeman, milkman, English teacher in a Thai school and web designer.
