A Parallel Trust


What begins as an exciting challenge turns into a countdown to save a young girl’s life.

As seventeen-year-old Aril Ousby, the son of a renowned astrophysicist, embarks on a geocache treasure hunt in Britain, a series of kidnappings takes place in the United States. How are these events connected?

Is Aril right to trust the enigmatic architect of the treasure hunt – or is he being led into an elaborate trap? Is the puzzle master motivated by altruism – or greed? And why has he chosen to involve Aril in his scheme?

Aril and his friend Unity are drawn into a mystery that leads them to look at the Earth from a new perspective and to address a fundamental question: can future generations avoid the mistakes their parents made?


Riley’s Investigations, who first featured in James Stoddah’s novel Ring of Conscience, return in a new adventure, which confronts the problems faced by future generations.

A Parallel Trust is compelling, funny and thought-provoking. An exciting and riveting story.”

Ring of Conscience is a mystery-thriller which follows the trail of two detectives who discover a legacy of $100 Million left in an online treasure hunt.

The book can be interactive too. The website featured in the book – melodema.com – exists. The clues work as they do in the book and the reader can try and uncover the clues before the detectives do. These clues find ambiguities in Roman, Greek and British myths and legends with there’s some logical thinking involved in progressing to each stage.

There is also a separate website – melodema.net – which has been set up in the same way, with the clues working similar to the way they do in the book. This has real prizes – including a solid gold replica of the Ring of Conscience in the book.
