This seems to be a short story ebook exclusive from established author Tom Harper but I don't know why there has been no marketing for it - perhaps the publisher are doing an experiment. It's about a British student named Paul specializing in Ancient Greek religion and working part time at the Zurich Museum who encounters a pair of unusual art collectors, Ari and Valerie, after closing hours at the museum.
They bribe him into convincing the private owner of one of the twelve Orphic tablets that This seems to be a short story ebook exclusive from established author Tom Harper but I don't know why there has been no marketing for it - perhaps the publisher are doing an experiment. They bribe him into convincing the private owner of one of the twelve Orphic tablets that the museum needs to photograph the artifact, a plausible request since the museum had previously done some work on the tablet.
But of course Ari and Valerie have ulterior motives and there is a nagging feeling that they were already familiar with Paul's educational and working background and deliberately targeted him. Unfortunately, it was very lacking and left me with far too many questions. I still don't understand what Aphrodite has to do with the Orphic tablets. Harper is an excellent author but I don't think short stories suit his style.
Shelves: ebooks , short-story-novella , free-kindle , read-in I found this short story ebook free at Amazon. I've never read anything by Tom Harper and it sounded interesting, so I thought I would give it a try. I liked the writing style, unfortunately, the story really did not make much sense, especially the ending.
I thought it would be about an ancient tablet, but it was more about a poor sucker who was conned into helping two thieves steal the tablet.

Not sure if I would read anything else by this author. The Choice An interesting short story about the circumstances surrounding the main character's biggest choice in his life.
When presented with a situation out of control, what would one choose to do? And there in await the consequences. Paul is doing his doctorate as well as working part-time at a museum in Zurich, Switzerland. He is way behind on his thesis deadline - 6 months behind - and the university have stopped his funding until he hands something in. One night, the museum is closing when a very wealthy couple stride in and demand to see the statue of Aphrodite - it'll only take a few minutes, they assure Paul, and the big man flashes a wad of cash for the favour.
After sheepishly showing them the statue and ushering the Paul is doing his doctorate as well as working part-time at a museum in Zurich, Switzerland. After sheepishly showing them the statue and ushering them out, Ari and Valerie invite him for a drink. This is when they tell him that they're really on the trail of a priceless tablet in somebody's private collection. The other eleven in the set are in public museums. All they want is a photo of the twelfth, and that'll keep Ari's elderly father happy.
Paul agrees, but the situation quickly turns sour and he has to makes decisions that will determine his future. This was a short story I read on the Kindle. I believe it was one of their 'Singles'. It only took me about half an hour or something. It was really good and I was very interested in how it was going to turn out before it came to and end, but the ending was really lame. It was such a let-down. I did like Tom Harper's writing style though, and I might look out for some other of his books. Many years ago, twelve tablets were created as a guide to the afterlife.
