Williams' Wonder Wax
Williams' Wax floor polish is good, very good, so good in fact that nobody else can quite work out how he does it, especially as the formula resists all known forms of analysis. Old Mr Williams is equally as mysterious, ancient and reclusive, living entirely within the confines of his factory in England. Try as they might, the competition cannot glean the secret of Williams' formula, even though they will and do stop at nothing to steal it.
Out of work and single, Matthew Frost's world has collapsed but just as he reaches the bottom of the pit of despair, he succeeds in getting a job at Williams' Wax. Little does he know that this is the start of an incredible journey and that his appointment is not all that it seems. Even as he starts his new job, a strange signal arrives on Earth from the depths of space, attracting the attention of a shadowy secret agency in America and causing them to drag Jim Hauser, one of their oldest operatives out of retirement.
What is the connection between the signal from space and the amazing truth behind Williams and his Wonder Wax? Can Matt Frost and Jim Hauser unravel the mystery in time to save the planet?
Colin Litten-Brown's latest book, Williams' Wonder Wax, is a science-fiction thriller set in the strange world of household product development and drawing from his years of personal experience inventing floor polishes, carpet shampoos and air fresheners.
