Laurie Campbell’s latest book, “There is a Season” is a compelling and dark murder mystery set against the romantic backdrop of ancient Prussia.
Burnaby, British Columbia (PRWEB) September 26, 2013
The year is 1860 and a gruesome murder rocks a wealthy family’s already fragile existence. Otto von Goff has learnt to juggle his estate, children, and extended family when his life is thrown off track by the murder of his brother’s valet. To make matters worse, his own valet, who is also his trusted friend and confidante, is accused of the crime. What follows is an intellectual game of cat and mouse played amongst the cast of eccentric characters, and Otto must keep all his wits about him to get to the truth and prove his friend’s innocence.
An excerpt from the book:
You’re missing something. What about the room? The room was too tidy. There would have been a fight – the room would have been messed up.”
“You will find, Herr von Goff, that I don’t miss things. Your valet is known to everyone in your household as a fastidious man. It would have been easy for him to tidy the room. In fact, it would have been unusual for him if he had not.”
Campbell helps the reader to escape into the world of 18th century Prussia with its plush landscape, Victorian-like characters, and charming estates. The characters interact with each other to build a tangled web of emotions that make the book a satisfying whodunit.
