Sinopsis: The story is set in 1979 in the tiny English village of Little Saddlington where local auctioneers Rubicon & Shipley find their next auction has been mysteriously publicised around the world ensuring thousands of people descend upon it, many to find their lives become changed through the extraordinary occurrences and adventures created by ?The Great Convergence?.

Major George Roberts has lived for twenty five years in a cottage rented from the local estate on a stretch of salmon river next to Little Saddlington.

He has been fighting a twelve year running battle with his landlord Geoffrey Rawlston, who has unsuccessfully tried everything possible to force the Major out of the cottage over the years and now that the Major cannot afford to renew his lease Rawlston will finally get the cottage and salmon fishings back, leaving the Major with no option but to move into a retirement home.

All over the world people are making plans to come to what has been advertised as being a truly important auction. General Chuck Verbeer from America, an Arab Sheikh from the Ahram desert, Bill Boyd from Australia and Hiroyuki Takada from Japan arrive along with thousands of people who overwhelm the tiny village.

But in amongst the chaotic scenes created by the hordes of people as they attend the six day auction there is much more going on than meets the eye.

In the end there is a very different outcome for the auctioneer and his silent backer than the one they were expecting as there is for almost everyone involved, including the Crow that was a Rook!

Book Excerpt:

The daggers came even closer.

?But you would be welcome in my home for no payment at all, as are all the peoples who wander upon the earth. What is the price??

?I can?t, I mean, really, you must understand??

?Silence! We shall not wait longer for I can see that you are a difficult man. As you will not give us the price?? the Sheikh snapped his fingers and the one who was not the Religious One produced a flat bag from within his robes and handed it to him without moving his eyes from Rawlston or removing the dagger from his face.

The Sheikh produced a fistful of money from the bag.

?This is what we offer to stay in your house!?

Rawlston looked in amazement at the large wad of notes in the Sheikh?s hand.

?Take it or we go!?

A shaken Geoffrey Rawlston took the money and the Arabs walked past him into the hallway and on into the lounge. He ran after them.

?But don?t you want to count what you?ve just given me??

The Sheikh made a dismissive gesture.

?We would like to eat now.?

?Eat??

?Yes, you do eat I suppose??

Rawlston nodded dumbly.

?Well have you any lamb??

?Lamb??

?Yes, it is a small sheep.?

?Oh, lamb! Yes, I?ll get some lamb! You just hang on here and I?ll organise some food!?

The Sheikh sighed.

Rawlston?s brain had finally overcome the shock and shifted into gear as he realised how valuable these ?guests? of his might be considering the large amount of money they had just furnished him with.

?Good, we will look to establish ourselves in your house, find our places to sleep and await your call to dine.?

?Dine? Yes, of course, I?ll just be a little while your, er??

He backed out of the room half bowing and left them to get his car and go shopping. After he had gone the Sheikh looked at those with him.

?A pathetic individual, he can be bought. He will be no trouble and Allah has provided us with a roof over our heads. Come! Let us investigate our new home!?

Biografía del autor: Jess Miller writes self-help books and humorous novels of which The Great Convergence is the only one currently and was first published in 2000.

Jess's story telling abilities, experience of life situations and sense of humor come shining through in 'Convergence' and he says he likes to write things that make people smile.

He has another humorous novel planned, but don't hold your breath for it because his time is pretty much taken up by his self-help work.
