Why? Is a story set in a web of despair, sex, unreachable emotion and love.
One man’s crippling injuries, caused by an unprovoked, vicious attack, ruins the lives of everyone around him. This includes Terry Meadows, a nineteen-year-old boy who falls in love with the main character’s daughter Laura, twenty-seven years before the opening of the story.
The twisted, interconnecting matrix in which Francis, Laura’s father, lives, destroys and distorts his daughter’s image of life beyond repair. It is a sad tragedy with an unexpected ending.
Why? A Complicated Love by Daniel Kemp

Why A Complicated LoveNineteen-year-old Terry thought it was his lucky night when a beautiful, older woman took him home for a night of uncomplicated sex. He hadn’t expected to meet Sammy’s daughter, Laura or to feel something akin to love at first sight.

Terry also hadn’t planned on the twisted control and domination of Laura’s father, a man whose poisoned mind and crippled body would dictate Terry’s future, with the caveat he was NOT to touch Laura. Welcome to the dark world of Daniel Kemp’s gritty and dark romantic tale, WHY? A COMPLICATED LOVE, a story spanning decades and fated to end tragically, yet fittingly in so many ways.

Daniel Kemp doesn’t shy away from raw details or human flaws and weaknesses. He also doesn’t apologize for making his readers uncomfortable or for the shock value he creates as we are left shaking our heads at how these events could have played out this way. Mr. Kemp is a master at storytelling for adults.

Short, but intense, WHY? is one of those reads that will stick in your head as you toy with “why” it had to end this way or so soon…

 

 

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.
