Torchwood: Exodus Code

Is there no end to John Barrowman’s talents? New from BBC Books in September is Torchwood: Exodus Code, a new tale from the Captain Jack Harkness actor and his sister, Carole E Barrowman.

This new title from BBC Books is an epic thriller that finds Captain Jack and Gwen in a race to save humanity itself…

In typical Torchwood apocalypse style, it starts with a series of unexplained events.  Earth tremors across the globe.  Women being driven insane by their heightened and scrambled senses.  And the world is starting to notice – the number one Twitter trend is #realfemmefatales.

Typically, governments and scientists are bewildered and silent, and once again the world needs Torchwood, but there’s not much of Torchwood left.

Captain Jack has tracked the problem to its source: a village in Peru, where he’s uncovered evidence of alien involvement.  In Cardiff, Gwen Cooper has discovered something alien and somehow connected to Jack.  If the world is to be restored, she has to warn him – but she’s quickly becoming a victim of the madness too…

Captain Jack Harkness actor John Barrowman and his sister Carole have been science fiction fans since the time of the Third Doctor.  They’ve collaborated on two volumes of John’s autobiography, a comic strip adventure with Captain Jack in the official Torchwood magazine and a fantasy children’s novel, Hollow Earth.

John became Captain Jack Harkness in Doctor Who back in May 2005 (The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances) and has appeared in eleven episodes of the hit show, before taking the lead role in Torchwood.  John has had starring roles on stage and on television, including his popular BBC entertainment show Tonight’s The Night.

Carole is Professor of English and Director of Creative Studies in Writing at Alverno College in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  She writes a monthly crime fiction column and regular reviews and features for newspapers.  She contributed a chapter to the Hugo award-winning non-fiction anthology Chicks Dig Time Lords.

Published by BBC Books on 13th September 2012, Exodus Code will be out in hardback for £16.99 from all good retailers, and you can pre-order the book and audio CD from Amazon now!
