    Chris Parker

    Product Code: CBQEK
    Paperback
    Early in its history, the Roman Catholic Church established a secret sect of elite spies and killers tasked with protecting the Church, its secrets and its treasures - the Mystiko Kataskopos, shortened to the MK. Members of the MK are, to this day, contemplative monks highly trained in both mystical practises and spying and assassination. They do whatever the Church demands. One such mystical assassin is Raphael Ward and he is secretly charged with tracing the 'real' version of the legendary Turin Shroud, unbeknownst to the world to have been stolen by the Nazis in WWII. As Raphael pursues new leads and deciphers the code that will lead to the Shroud, his mission forces him to engage with the world's darkest, most violent underbelly. As he faces threats to his life - and threatens those of others - he begins to question the very faith that has sustained and driven him for so long. Monk is a compelling, clever and page turning thriller in the best traditions of Dan Brown and Michael Byrnes.

  • Living in the Moment

    Chris Parker

    Product Code: CAZAU
    Hardback
    Epiah Khan is an apocryphal Middle Eastern mystic, martial artist, writer and poet believed to have been born in Baghdad in 1860. Much of Epiah's early life is a mystery, but it is known that he travelled to London in 1906 where he taught mysticism and his own brand of holistic martial arts for seven years. He moved to Paris in 1913 and from there to Verdun, where he died during the longest battle of the First World War. Chris Parker began his study of meditation and martial arts in the 1970s. He has been the custodian of Epiah Khan's writing for over 25 years. In this introductory volume he offers us: * A brief history of Epiah Khan. * An essay about his writing style and the key themes he addresses. * An extract from an interview Epiah gave to Rhythm magazine in 1913. * 250 original sayings. Epiah Khan lived in a time of great change and upheaval and some of the quotes contained here reflect this. Even so this collection shares timeless truths, lessons, insights and reminders that are as relevant today as they have always been; that will be as relevant tomorrow as they are today. This is wisdom of the ages and, no doubt, at different times different sayings will resonate more than others. Because, as Epiah Khan writes, `You find what you search for'
