Aspects of mid-17th century England, especially the plethora of religious sects, are quite fascinating.
SYDNEY (PRWEB) September 09, 2014
In a complicated historical context, it can be argued that the ends justified the means.
In his new historical fiction novel “The Dark Corners,” author Geoff Quaife, a seasoned historian, tells the story of a top agent in 1656 Wales attempting to solve a mysterious murder and disappearances. Meanwhile, sacrifice, seduction and corruption follow him.
“The appeal of history in entertainment mediums is increasing,” Quaife said. “Aspects of mid-17th century England, especially the plethora of religious sects, are quite fascinating.”
Quaife, who taught 17th century European history for 30 years, said his goal was to construct a suspenseful mystery with a strong grasp of the period in which he writes.
His story follows agent Luke Tremayne as he follows the order of the Lord Oliver Cromwell to shed light on one of the dark corners of the land. As the protagonist tries to solve a murder, he encounters run-ins with uprisings, fanatics and revolutionaries.
“The Dark Corners” combines a ruthless analysis of murder scenes and religious fanaticism with a past society. It is the seventh novel in a series.
