It is a strange morning when Scotland Yard’s Special Branch begs help in solving crime. But a series of grisly murders across London have so unnerved the Government that they go hat in hand to beg the help of Europe’s greatest detective, Gerard de Montclaire. The murders seem to have no connection at all, except that each victim is murdered in the same brutal way. They are clearly the work of a deranged mind, but Montclarie and his associate, Sir Francis FitzMaurice, are challenged to fathom the rationale of the homicidal lunatic and to anticipate him. The unraveling of that rationale leads to a frightening conclusion, that could have consequences for the future of Europe.

I am a Farmer, History Professor and former CIA Intelligence Officer. When I’m not out chasing staying cows who have no respect for fences, or tracking-down undergraduates who have no respect for assignment deadlines, I am at my desk, penning the next Montclaire Mystery. There, accompanied by my Chief Beta Reader, Scruffy (cat) and Editorial Assistant, Willie Boy (beagle), I write Edwardian Mysteries that are every bit as good as those that captured my attention as a 10 year old and have held it ever since. The Montclaire Mysteries are tales of intrigue, revenge, jealousy, espionage, political corruption, and international conspiracy – just the ingredients that make for a deliciously evil soup. I get my greatest thrill when new readers taste the genius of Gérard de Montclaire, the most formidable detective of the Belle Époque, as he navigates problems that would make the likes of Sherlock Holmes, Arsène Lupin, and Hercule Poirot shudder with dread and cringe with self-doubt.
