Press Release created and distributed by:
Mystery, Deceit & Murder Collide, as Rip-Roaring New Novel Thrusts Readers
into Portugal’s Carnation Revolution & the Angolan Civil War.
Forty years ago, a military coup in Lisbon turned Portugal
on its head in the Carnation Revolution.
While he is now a renowned international business leader,
Chris Lowery was one of the thousands forced to flee the
nation with this family as armed forces changed the way of
life in Portugal, and it’s Angolan colony, forever.
Forty years after these momentous events Lowery is
releasing a spellbinding novel about a group of refugees
whose post-revolution lives were not quite as fruitful.
It all plays out in ‘The Angolan Clan’,www.urbanepublications.com/books/the-angolan-clan/ which whisks readers
across four decades and three continents as murder and
deceit become all too commonplace for comfort.
Early reviews have been extremely positive. Tessa Massoud says
“Great book. Couldn't stop reading. A fascinating tale of Love,
Money and Greed based on events in Africa and Portugal during
the revolution of the carnation”
Barry Nay adds, “I have to admit a bias for this type of
facumentary, a book that mixes a good story, in this case a
thriller, with factual information. I put this book in the same class
as Barbara Kingsolver's " La Laguna " and " The Poisonwood Bible
" and Richard North Patterson's " Exile ".”
