The saga Out of the Picture spans over thirty years, from the Turkish invasion of Cyprus in 1974 to present day.

Georgiou, a fourteen-year-old Greek Cypriot, gets caught up in the local conflict. Wanted by Turkish authorities, the boy is spirited away to the UK to live safely with his aunt and uncle, until manhood. After gaining an education, he becomes a gifted artist

Fate takes Georgiou to New York and eventually back to his beloved island after many years. Along the way, he gains fame and fortune, as well as enemies who threaten to destroy him and his family. After all this time, can Georgiou get to the bottom of a complex murder plot and save his sanity and all those he loves?

Originally from London, Russell James Dearden now lives in Liverpool. He envisioned this book after visiting Cyprus, and says he is inspired by people who have achieved against all odds. He is now working on his next book. Dearden became a writer because he was “too old to be a rock star.”
