Gibraltar is considered by some a colonial outpost of limited interest. Bestselling novelist Kitty Sewell found it otherwise.
A ﬂying visit was extended to include a private tour of the extensive tunnel system, a hair-raising potholing expedition down into the warren of caves and many a hike through the jungle-like slopes under the pinnacles of The Rock. The longer she stayed, the more she discovered about this extraordinary peninsula and the germ of a thriller began to take shape.
Sewell’s psychological suspense drama THE FAULT tells of a young structural engineering prodigy, entrusted to lead a project to build a cantilevered shelf on the sheerest face of The Rock of Gibraltar. The highly innovative development divides the local population, meeting with either condemnation or applause. His wayward young sister and his American ﬁancee try to keep his ever-threatening compulsions from turning genius into spiralling madness. The story lets the reader discover not just the people, the history, language and the remarkable topography of The Rock, but what transpires in its dark interior, layer by layer.
THE FAULT is Kitty Sewell's 5th novel. Her work has been translated into 15 languages and sold world-wide. She is also a psychotherapist, penned a syndicated newspaper column for 15 years, and is an award-winning sculptor.
Kitty is interviewed by Tim Turner and will be reading excerpts from THE FAULT.
