Publisher's Write-Up

Three friends leave the Scottish oil fields and head home to England for their scheduled leave but as the journey starts they find themselves embroiled in strange disappearances and unexplained activities. An 'unusual' rain had fallen - resulting in abnormal sightings and behaviour within the region and it's spreading globally. Learn how events unfold and discover the fate of the travellers as well as that of their loved ones.

It is estimated 250,000 people vanish in the UK each year. It is estimated 820,000 people vanish in the USA each year. It is not known how many people vanish world wide each year. But on November 25th 2011 at 17:37 GMT 88.7% of the earth's population will vanish in one night and for one man the search will begin. Will you be one of them?

John is returning home to his family following a stint in the North Sea oil fields when he and his two friends, Paul and Lee, are rendered unconscious soon after a strange purple rain begins to fall; as John happens to be driving at the time the resulting car crash is inevitable. John is not the only one and all around the world scenes reminiscent of FlashForward take place as disasters abound.

Waking up dazed and confused John assumes he has only been unconscious for a short time but it soon becomes apparent that something is seriously amiss. Leaving their crashed car behind they go to seek help only to find the world deserted. Where has everyone gone and why?

Although the ensuing story has a certain predictability I found it entertaining with likeable characters and a decent honest ending. The Harvesting is another enjoyable story from a budding author showing genuine promise.

The minor proof reading issues evident in Yesterday’s Flight are also present in The Harvesting; nothing a good editor wouldn’t sort out. Also, as with Yesterday’s Flight, this book is relatively short at 157 pages so if you have an appropriate e-reader the ebook is probably the best way of enjoying yet another thrilling story from author Martyn Ellington. Recommended.
