Présentation de l'éditeur

T. D. Griggs won second prize in the 2013 RUBERY INTERNATIONAL BOOK AWARDS http://www.ruberybookaward.com/2013-book-winners.html


'Clever, incisive, sharp as a well-honed blade, T.D. Griggs brings us another intricate, beautiful thriller. It's his people that make these great: deep, rich and characterful. Miss it at your peril!' M. C. Scott, bestselling author of the Rome Series


DO YOU EVER REALLY KNOW THE ONE YOU LOVE?


Surgeon Michael Severin flies to disaster areas all over the world - floods, earthquakes, fires. He is good at his work, decisive, courageous and skilled - a natural rescuer.

He learns the cost of his successful life, however, only when he returns home early from an assignment to find his wife Caitlin dying from a brutal assault in their London home. His world shattered, Severin sets out to unravel the tangled skein of events which led to the tragedy.

He finds more questions than answers. Who is the strange young woman who comes to his home one night, knowing more than she ought to? Who was sending Caitlin childish pictures of a mysterious house in the woods?

In following these trails Michael Severin comes to know his dead wife as he never knew her in life. And he discovers that a man can be equal to any tragedy, except his own.

Biographie de l'auteur

T.D Griggs was born in London and has lived and worked on four continents. He holds British and Australian nationality and has worked variously as a truck driver, journalist, film extra, MD of a successful communications consultancy, and – for about seven sweaty hours – as a volunteer fire fighter. Despite that, much of the Australian bush survives.

He has written many short stories and three other novels, including the father-son drama The Warning Bell (written as Tom Macaulay) and - under his own name - the Victorian epic Distant Thunder and the international bestseller Redemption Blues.

T. D. Griggs is also a professional business writer with an international client base. He has degrees in English and archaeology, and now lives with his wife Jenny in Oxford, UK.

Michael is a doctor for MSF. He works in the world's worst disasters, dropping everything to go and help out wherever his skills are needed. He is married to the beautiful Caitlin, an artist. Arriving home from Venezuela after an exhausting tour of duty, he finds her dying on the stairs from her studio, with a packed suitcase nearby. With all his training, he can't save her.
Once she is dead, he begins to learn about the life she has led in his absence - which it has never occurred to him to consider before. Having rescued her from a domineering father, he has apparently assumed that saving the princess from the dragon leads straight into 'happy ever after'. He's never thought about what happens next.
Mike blames himself for the death of his own family when he was a child, and uses his medical work as some sort of atonement. He's so busy looking at the next earthquake or flood that he fails to see the more immediate world of marriage and everyday life. Now he has to learn not only who his wife really is, but who his father was, too.
This is his own baptism of fire, through which he will emerge a changed man; and the past will never again be what he imagined it to be.
Occasionally the dialogue is a little too 'written for effect' rather than natural; but that's the only quibble in what is a very enjoyable book.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Very recommendable 13 janvier 2014

I very much recommend this book, not the least for quality of the writing. The proof-reading also was excellent, which is always welcome. The characters are vivid and come to life. I did fairly early on guess who the villain might be and a few other developments, but I don't mind that since reading a whodunit does not have to be a contest between the author and myself and in this instance, it does not in the least detract from my enjoyment. I bought another of T.D. Griggs' books immediately.

This is a book that I thoroughly enjoyed, not only on account of the plot but also because of the quality of the writing. Rich vocabulary but not over-descriptive. Logical timeline, which seems to be less and less the case in this type of novel. Mild suspense. Maybe the end is a little rushed. On the whole, highly recommended.

I can second EAVG's recommendation, since she also recommended the writer to me personally (hi, EAVG!) Intelligently written, characters that engage the reader's interest and a good plot - I wasn't quite so fast on the uptake, having allowed a red herring to distract me for while there. Anyway, if I knew whodunnit, where would be the fun in the final reveal? Promptly purchased "Redemption Blues" to follow, and was not disappointed. I look forward to more from T.D.Griggs.
