A PLACE IN TIME

APIT D2D Ebook NEW COVER MAN IN PADDOCK white strapline

A murder in the past. A witness in the present. A journey through time to find the truth.

Dan Campbell is a troubled man. Thirty years earlier, on his 11th birthday, he’d witnessed his father’s murder, but something is wrong with the memory of that terrible day. Something he can’t quite see, something just out of focus.

When he goes back to his childhood home to confront his memories and find answers to the mystery of his father’s death, he is swept back in time to the day of the murder and what he discovers there will turn his world upside down, for no one and nothing is as he remembers.

An excellent read

Lots of novels have been written about time travel, but this one, in my opinion was outstanding. Well written and sympathetically portrayed characters make this story believeable. I am glad they set it partially in Australia as I am an Aussie. The setting after the big drought with everything falling into disrepair is authentic. It was also entertaining(I read it overnight, it’s not a long book) in spite of the subject matter – the murder of the father – and this character is totally believable. Domestic abuse in Australia is as prevalent as anywhere.

A great read, and I am going to buy this author’s next book as well.

Written by an Australian writer, this little crime novel surprised me to be much more than I had expected. A 40-year-old man suffers depression every year on his birthday since he witnessed his father’s murder by a stranger when he was 11 years old. Now living in England, after much therapy and having the financial means he and his mum go back to Australia, to the scene to either jog his memory or at least put the past to rest. A well-written and engrossing read. Not what I had expected as it ventures off into a realm of magical realism which must be worked out as the story progresses. If you like your crimes to take place fully in the real world, this won’t be for you. Otherwise, it is an intriguing look at when powerful emtions collide in space and time. Whether the story involves time travel or something more mystical it is a lovely story of a family, mother and son, rescued from a life of abuse. Lovely writing. I’d certainly try the author again.
