Genre: Contemporary General Fiction. 
James Peart is extremely proud and excited to share his work, Handel. The project might have been a lengthy one, but this was one story that really needed to be told.
Gregor Handel is an Austro-Hungarian philanthropist, patron of the arts, and an extraordinary mind in the field of literature. Having produced a book many years ago that sold in the hundreds of millions, filled with his unique insights into the limits of human endeavour, he shook Western culture to its foundations. Now armed with a significant financial war chest, he takes on the best of corporate Britain and America as he acquires a string of recording companies, publishers and international art galleries in London, New York and Los Angeles. From this position of strength, he can better control the commercial lives of new artists, steering them to the dizzy heights of creative stardom. Many people in the fields of music, art and finance have challenged his status, yet none possessed the divergent intelligence, energy, or creative manoeuvrability necessary to accomplish this. Only Alan Jones, an English accountant and one of his protégés, possesses the brains and imagination to do it. However, in order to achieve his immodest ambitions, he must first discover the reasons behind Handel’s success, opening a chest of dark treasures, secrets containing the power of ancient talismans that are deadly to the touch, and will irrevocably alter the life of he who does so.
