Ring-Fenced: a novel by Zach Abrams


Ring-Fenced by Zach Abrams

Benjamin enjoys sex, he likes money, he loves power and he’s addicted to control.
If you think your life’s complicated then spare a thought for him as he obsessively juggles and controls his five independent lives.
One man, five lives, ring-fenced and separated,
  • Bennie, loving husband and father,
  • Benjie, beloved youngest son,
  • Ben, successful corporate banker,
  • Benjamin, millionaire author and publisher of pornography
  • and Jamie, dynamic part-time lover of a beautiful musician.

Relying on his Blackberry to keep all his personae separate, his life is perfect.
But what if holes begin to appear in the divisions?
When a sequence of events throws his life into chaos, his separate words collide with explosive consequences.

About Zach Abrams
After a successful career in business and finance, Zach Abrams recently started writing fiction.
His first novel 'Ring Fenced' was published in November 2011.  This is a crime story with a difference, having an underlying theme of obsession, power and control. This novel was followed by a collaboration with Elly Grant to produce 'Twists and Turns' a book of short stories and flash fiction. Alike his central character in 'Ring Fenced,' (Benjamin Short), Zach Abrams completed his education in Scotland and went on to a career in business and finance.  He is married with two children.  He plays no instruments but has an eclectic taste in music, although not as obsessive as Benjamin. Unlike Benjamin, he does not maintain mistresses, write pornography and (sadly) he does not have ownership of such a valuable company.  He is not a sociopath (at least by his own reckoning) and all versions of his life are aware of and freely communicate with each other.

Zach has completed his second novel 'Made a Killing' which has recently been published.  This is a fast moving, gripping novel set in the tough crime-ridden streets of Glasgow. More in keeping with ‘Made a Killing,’ Zach was raised in Glasgow and has spent many years working in Central Scotland.
