What Happened In Vienna, Jack?

It’s an intelligent well-researched book full of intrigue, secrets and lies for the reader who expects more.”

The Writers’ Wing would like to welcome its next inmate, espionage and mystery author,
Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel —The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do?
Nowadays he is a prolific storyteller, and although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows most about; murders laced by the intrigue involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he compiles both for adults and children.
He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication, been described as —the new Graham Green — by a managerial employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of signing events, and he has appeared on ‘live’ television.

To have one book published is an achievement similar to have climbed a mountain, but after a while, it seems as though you are walking the street with only one shoe on your feet. To have two books published balances your step and the thought of stopping with that one can satisfy some ambition unless the insatiable desire to tell stories is too strong to stop; until—but is there ever an until?

If I were to compare the things that I’ve done right
To the things where I’ve failed
Then the failures would come out on top.
But there has been more I’ve attempted when the chances arose
Than those, I ignored and did not.
To look back, to assess, to judge what was I
Is an impossible task to attempt.
As decisions were based on only what I knew
Not prejudiced by future contempt.
To have assessed the future with only that present eye
Demanded wisdom beyond my grasp,
But I tell you truly as I stand here today
It would still be to my heart that I would I clasp.

There is no morality to be found in evil.

One must forget the rules of morality.
A STORY OF POWER
One helluva of a review for Why?—–
5 out of 5 stars Lyrical, Urgent, Betrayal & Retribution
By Billierosie on 29 April 2018
“Why? A Complicated Love” Is a lyrical, urgent tale of love, despair, betrayal and retribution told by my favourite author, Daniel Kemp.
The novel is told as a first-person narrative by Terry Meadows. The reader is privy to Terry’s thoughts..the story unfolds through the effect that the main characters have on his life.
Daniel Kemp sets a quiet steady pace, there’s no rush, as he introduces his main players…Terry, Laura, Francis and Sammi. We are quickly drawn into this tale of distorted sexuality. Just a few paragraphs detail a reason for Francis’ debauched, controlling behaviour. It’s a behaviour that has Sammi and Laura’s seeming acquiescence. And simply the fact that Terry is witness to this sick, claustrophobic family, means that he also is a puppet to Francis’ depravity. It is Francis who drives the narrative.
Do you believe in love at first sight? No? Please suspend your disbelief. I’m talking about the sort of love that Shakespeare crafts for his tragedy Romeo and Juliet, or the poignant lyrics that Stephen Sondheim writes for the equally tragic West Side Story.
For an audience to be drawn into an intense, heated whirl of recognition takes a skilled, sensitive writer…eyes meet across a crowded room..forgive the cliche, but that’s the moment I’m trying to conjure up..and it’s exactly that moment that Daniel Kemp, crafts, so exquisitely, in the meeting of Terry and Laura.
Many Poets, Artists and Novelists believe in love at first sight…they spend their creative lives telling us about it, we feel their heat as they chant their magic.
I love this novel by Daniel Kemp, it is pure pleasure to read. Where Erotica occurs, it’s entirely appropriate..as is violence. You can, if you like, dissect the narrative, but in the process don’t lose sight of a beautifully written, absolutely engaging story. I shall certainly be reading a lot more from Daniel Kemp.

I am giving away an autographed copy of my novella–Why:? A Complicated Love.
It is essentially a story of love, however, one reviewer complained that the sex was too graphic. If that one opinion persuades you not to enter then that saddens me, but I understand.
