In his new mystery novel, “142 Wellington Place” (published by iUniverse), author Tim Selvadurai takes readers into mysterious murder investigation in London when an adulterous husband is found dead.

Fourteen years after the end of World War II, former RAF fighter pilot Ben Benison gets a frantic phone call from Celia, the wife of his best friend, Don. It seems Don has been unfaithful, and the proof stands in the hallway of the couple’s home: Ada Hamilton, a young, fragile, pregnant girl who clutches love letters written in Don’s hand.

Unfortunately, Don is in London, and Celia wants Ben to find out if her husband truly is a liar and a cheat. Ben’s journey to find Don turns into an investigation into Don’s mysterious death which reveals many surprising twists. The suspense builds toward an unexpected, exciting and pathos-filled climax.

An excerpt from “142 Wellington Place”:

“It is strange how the mind can experience anew sensations which had seemed dead and forgotten. It was true that I had loved Celia not so very long ago, but since her marriage to Don, my mind had adjusted to the circumstance and time had reduced the flame until there seemed hardly an ember left. But seeing her now alone and unhappy awakened a strong response within me, and once again something like the old yearning seemed to have laid hold of my heart.”
