    I m so torn by this book and I know I will find it difficult to review First up, it s long Rather longer than it needed to be if I m completely honest That said, I enjoyed this gripping thriller and am interested to seek out the first in this trilogy.Over two billion people in the world don t have access to a clean toilet Imagine there was a way to cheaply facilitate the rise out of poverty for that percentage of the world s population who live in grinding underdevelopment Two scientists have found a way, using unpublished advancement from Einstein s Theory of Relavity, their work will take the world by storm when it is announced, but can those involved get to the anticipated conference to launch their project to the world This novel moves around the world at breakneck speed, sometimes at the speed of sound We travel from the USA to the UK to India and back in time to Second World War Germany and Russia, then Switzerland It s a complex and layered story and, at times, it was hard to understand how the various strands will fit together There s a similarly large cast of characters although the main protagonists are well developed especially Jock, Nisha, Lawrence and Hannah There s a real sense of tension and drama that develops throughout the third part of the book especially At times I found I was holding my breath while reading, especially in one crucial dramatic point when...

    With thanks to the publisher for the copy received.A Litany of Good Intentions is a slightly different novel for me, whilst there are crimes committed they are not just of the murderous kind Instead the focus is on the crimes against humanity, from some who have the wealth and power towards those who have nothing.Much of the novel takes place in India and even though it was difficult to read it was the part that interested me the most I had been told years ago of the contrast between the rich and the poor by a family member who had to go on a business trip and was appalled Reading this novel and remembering his account left me feeling sickened.Nothing is restrained or made to sound anything different to how it must be The reader can visualise the extreme conditions that some people live in And you could also see that there were people who were prepared to suffer hardship themselves whilst trying to improve the life of others.There were many characters in the novel, at times I had to read back to remind myself who they were In part two, the novel goes back to various periods and countries in the 1900s At first I wasn t sure why, but it is explained later in the book.It is very well written and even though it was part two in a trilogy I had no issues with not reading part...

    This is the second book in the Human Spirit Trilogy but if like me you haven t read the first one, The C Clef , it s fine as a stand alone A Litany of Good Intentions is all about Project Amrita, the biggest scientific breakthrough in centuries Over 2.6 billion people have no access to a toilet, drink polluted water and die in their millions Jock Lim, a Chinese Philanthropist has founded SINAC to eradicate world poverty and with the innovative work of a brilliant scientist, Dr Nisha Patel, who has established a genius technology to produce limitless electricity for virtually no cost, they aim to make this sensational breakthrough purely for the good of humanity They are poised to announce their accomplishment on the world stage at Uppsala University where global TV coverage and world leaders and dignitaries will be present at the ceremony.Oil, gas, coal and nuclear power will become defunct when free geothermal electricity can be generated and transmitted anywhere This is technology that could be worth billions With so much at stake the implications are extraordinarily high and unsurprisingly there are those whose fortunes will be lost as a result and who will stop at nothing to ensure that it doesn t see the light of day A murder made to look like suicide, a violent kidnapping and industrial...

    This is the second book of Andrew s trilogy that I ve read For each, I appreciate Andrew s underlying motivation behind his plots a cure for cancer in The C Clef , and ending world poverty in A Litany of Good Intentions In fact, I realise that I was at the same Rotary International lecture that led Andrew to develop this intriguing crime thriller plot around the issue of world poverty Hannah is a key character in common to both books but the second book can be read independently without problem.I was stimulated by the fictional premise and challenge of the book a scientific breakthrough that would have an immediate and widespread positive impact to reduce world poverty Actions of benevolence, determination, generosity, greed, deception, doubt and jealousy then followed by the many maybe too many characters in the story Of the 3 parts, the first sets the basic plot...

    Epic crime thriller absolutely loved it Could quite easily see this being made into a movie The story centres around poverty, a need for clean sanitation, and free electricity for all A wealthy businessman and his scientist girlfriend have found the formula for free electric, and they propose to release it to the public during a ceremony in Uppsala, where a host of scientists and world leaders and royalty will be in attendance.A man at the helm of a affluent Swiss Bank, his name the Choirmaster will stop at nothing.including kidnap and murder, to stop this project from going ahead I thought the plot was great The characters had background and personality I loved how the author went into Hindu culture and explained about Samsara.and there was me thinking it was just a perfume It did niggle me a bit that the Choirmaster who was clearly a raving psychopath, had Aspergersbut that is personal to me because my daughter has Aspergers and apart from b...

    I absolutely loved the second book in Human Spirit trilogy I read the first book The C Clef recently which is definitely the best book I have read this year, and could not wait the second in the series Although I still say that The C Clef is still the best book I have read this year, A Litany of Good Intentions is an excellent read The main characters are back and continue with their work in the world of science They are this time in India and Sweden and fighting against those who appear to want to stop development of a sanitation project in India.Andrew Harris is described as someone who writes thrillers with a social conscience He is certainly an amazing author, who in my view writes so well and produces books that are different to anything else I have ever read As I said in my review about C Clef, I just want to get the word out about these bo...
