Danny Kemp cover.indd

Both Kindle and Paperback available Saturday 25 July!

Synopsis:

Percy Crow, twice captured in World War Two, first by the Nazis and then by the Russians, escapes in the bilges of a freighter from Soviet Russia to Hamburg where he sells his secrets to Meredith Paine, the head of British Intelligence.

Lord Maudlin Paterson hears of Percy’s account of a member of the Royal family’s sexual abuse of a fourteen-year-old girl in the Irish home of a fellow English lord. Disgusted to think that his beloved England could be besmirched in such an obscene manner, he sets out to find whatever the repulsive truth may be!

Many years after Maudlin’s death, the daughter of his illegitimate Russian son, Paulo Korovin, suddenly blurts out Percy’s name whilst being interrogated by the CIA for her spying activities. Harry Paterson, Maudlin’s legitimate great-grandson, is the only person to whom she’s willing to disclose what little of the spiralling web she knows!

Is there more to be discovered by Harry, as the rationale of his great-grandfather, hidden in the distorted mirrors of photographs at the back of an album, or, is there another reason much closer to home?

Not trusting British Intelligence, Harry, with his lifelong friend George Northcliffe, along with the new complication in his life, the beautiful Serena Abenazo, starts unravelling the clues. Where will the rattling bones of the sepia images lead him?

Over one hundred deceitful years covering more secrets that could be imagined are concealed by just two words; Percy Crow!

About Danny Kemp

I was at work one sunny November day in 2006, stopped at a red traffic light when a van, driven incompetently, smashed into me. I was taken to St Thomas' Hospital and kept in for a while, but it was not only the physical injuries that I suffered from; it was also mental ones. I had lost confidence in myself let alone those around me. The experts said that I had post-traumatic stress disorder, which I thought only the military or emergency personnel suffered from. On good days, I attempted to go to work, sometimes I even made it through Blackwell Tunnel only to hear, or see, something that made me jump out of my skin and that's when the anxiety attacks would start. I told my wife that I was okay and going regularly, but I wasn't. I could not cope with life and thought about ending it. Somehow or other with the help of my wife and medical professionals, I managed to survive and ever so slowly rebuild my self-esteem. It took almost four years to fully recover, but it was during those dark depressive days that I began to write. My very first story, Look Both Ways, Then Look Behind, found a literary agent but not a publisher. He told me that I had a talent, raw, but nevertheless, it was there. His advice was to write another story and that I'm delighted to say, I did. The success of that debut novel, The Desolate Garden, was down to sheer hard work, luck, and of course, meeting a film producer.

    I have to keep my aged fingers warm, Patricia, but perhaps the Winter months will be too cold in my writing shed. I hope you like my story. 🙂
