This Islands Mine

Haunted, lonely and believing himself to be under the power of a curse the Cuckoo Man wanders the streets of London’s West End seeking a way back to his African homeland. Mysterious and rootless he’s like a brooding prophet lost amidst the neon signs and the jostling revellers. His memories about his past are fragmented –each day he must struggle to piece them together. Homeless, he lurks on the fringes of theatre-land, a place where reality and fiction collide.

 

The only thing he’s really sure about is that in order to break the curse, he must somehow find a pair of “wings” to fly “home”, this and his ability to understand the language of birds who whisper Dark prophetic warnings to him. Is he a madman, or can he really break the curse and fly home? After he meets Dawn, a psychically gifted Northern girl, who can read peoples' minds, a dramatic chain of events unfolds .

 

In a mad adrenalin fuelled race against time they must take on the combined power of a ruthless Triad and an African black magic man so that the Cuckoo Man can release himself from his curse once and for all.

Sensitive, yet to be discovered novelist James Sancroft, lives a frugal hand-to-mouth existence on a run down boat on the river Thames in London. His efforts to publish his first book, a compelling romantic novel called "Lights Over London", based on the true life of Seventeenth Century fine artist, Garmaine Kirkdale, have proved fruitless. Sancroft's story follows the fortunes of the enigmatic Kirkdale as he leaves his remote hamlet in Somerset and heads to London to seek fame as an Artist. While doing finishing touches to his paintings, the night before the opening of his first exhibition, Kirkdale is tragically disfigured in the Great Fire of London, forcing him to seek a living as part of London's Underworld.

 

Sancroft's fortunes change after a chance encounter with a Hollywood Producer who decides to buy the rights to his story with a view to turning it into a film. As production begins and the film makers re-envision the world of Seventeenth Century London, in a lavish but crude adaptation, the hidden past of Kirkdale exerts a bewitching influence over Sancroft as past and present dramatically collide. But could the Writer and Producer's efforts to raise the talented artist out of his long obscurity, lead to the solving of a centuries old riddle concerning the

re-discovery of the Crown Jewels of King John, mysteriously lost some 400 years before the Great Fire itself.
