What Happened In Vienna, Jack?


The introduction and opening five chapters of the last full novel I shall ever write!

After this one, there’ll be no reason to continue.



About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp’s introduction to the world of espionage and mystery happened at an early age when his father was employed by the War Office in Whitehall, London, at the end of WWII. However, it wasn’t until after his father died that he showed any interest in anything other than himself! On leaving academia he took on many roles in his working life: a London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver, but never did he plan to become a writer. Nevertheless, after a road traffic accident left him suffering from PTSD and effectively—out of paid work for four years, he wrote and self-published his first novel —The Desolate Garden. Within three months of publication, that book was under a paid option to become a $30 million film. The option lasted for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company. All seven of his novels are now published by Creativia with the seventh—The Widow’s Son, completing a three book series alongside: What Happened In Vienna, Jack? and Once I Was A Soldier. Under the Creativia publishing banner, The Desolate Garden went on to become a bestselling novel in World and Russian Literature in 2017. The following year, in May 2018, his book What Happened In Vienna, Jack? was a number one bestseller on four separate Amazon sites: America, UK, Canada, and Australia.  Although it's true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows most about; murders laced by the mystery involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he writes, namely: Why? A Complicated Love, and the intriguing story titled The Story That Had No Beginning. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication and described as—the new Graham Green—by a highly placed employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of book signing events. He has also appeared on 'live' television in the UK publicising that first novel of his. He continues to write novels, poetry and the occasional quote; this one is taken from the beginning of Once I Was A Soldier There is no morality to be found in evil. But to recognise that which is truly evil one must forget the rules of morality.

  1. I must confess that I have not started reading “What Happened In Vienna Jack?” The reason for that is circumstance. For the past few months my husband has been in and out of hospital, twice taken in by paramedics. I tend to my two beautiful granddaughters through out the week and the summer was a handful, no school. I just last night was able to get a few pages in of “The Desolate Garden.” and hope to finish It this weekend. I love the characters in Desolate Garden and the plot is
    intriguing and packed with twists and turns. Even though I have not finished the book yet, I would still highly recommend it to all.
    I also can not wait to see what Jack has to say about Vienna.
    Kudos Danny…..

    I’m so sorry to hear of your husband’s troubles, Patricia, but don’t worry about reading my work as it will be out there forever. The What Happened In Vienna, Jack? will be my last contribution and won’t be finished for some time as my eyes won’t stand the strain of writing nowadays, only in short stints.Thank you for your recommendation, very much appreciated.
