Acrobats of Reason is the compelling story of Martin Wilson-Jones, his struggle to survive Indonesia's corporate world and the steady erosion of his own principles. Under the constant pressure from the greed and corruption of his adversaries and those he once respected, Martin almost loses everything; including his life.

'In their peaceful introspection the Balinese people struggled in a nation devoid of logic and so blinded by religious lunacy it could no longer hear the rhythm of life for the pounding drums of corruption and greed'.

For Martin Wilson-Jones it all was over. It was time to go.

Graham Butchart lives in Queenstown, New Zealand. He is currently working on the sequel to Acrobats of Reason.
