The first book of Mark Porath's trilogy Colour of Stealth was a mystery thriller. It challenged us to think in more detail about our ancestors, and who they might have been in reality?

Convicts extradited from England to Australia and New Zealand in the late 1800s, in many instances unbeknowingly, provided an entirely new generation of citizens.

Impact of Stealth is the second book in Mark Porath's trilogy. It recognises the wide ranging implications for families in Australia and New Zealand, not only in the 1890s, but also in the modern twentieth century era.

The challenges of coping with actual reality by so many people, directly and indirectly, and impacted by historical decisions and actions, is the basis of Impact of Stealth. Can the assumptions and conclusions arrived at by all the parties involved lead to results that are viable and reliable?

After decades of successful careers and business endeavours spanning leadership across international sales, marketing, financial services, and private investment, Mark has now published his sequel to Colour of Stealth. Impact of Stealth is the second of a trilogy. Mark has lived on the North Shore of Auckland for many decades and enjoys the freedom and beauty of the local environment.
