Overview

In Misery's Company, Lady Marmalade is having a few guests over for dinner and company at her 'cottage' called Avalon at Ambleside in the picturesque Lake District.

Sir Anthony Gibbons is a teller of engaging tall tales. A retired surgeon who was friend to both Lady Marmalade and her husband Eric, Sir Tony regales the dinner guests with a true story of a murder most foul in Australia.

Lady Marmalade's good friend Jane Howard is one of the guests as is the businessman Ellis Hutchinson and his wife Lily. Sir Tony tells the tale of the murder of Melissa Kay, wife to Roger and mother to James.

At a dinner much like Lady Marmalade is hosting for her guests, Melissa is poisoned by someone who dined with her that fateful night. Not only was Melissa's husband and son there, but her good friend Laura Lynch and her sister Ellie were enjoying the meal too.

The question on everyone's mind, is whether or not Lady Marmalade can be outfoxed and if anyone else can determine the real killer in Sir Tony's tale before she does.

Meet the Author

I was born in Cape Town, South Africa but now call Canada home. I love the old hard boiled detective novels of Dashiel Hammett and Raymond Chandler, but they never wrote enough so I decided to write my own :) With my literary fiction I'm trying to write stories that resonate with the human condition. But more than that, I hope to add something the written canon that helps to uplift the human potential. I love the greats; Hemingway, Steinbeck, Fitzgerald and I love the poets too, especially Dylan Thomas and Walt Whitman. Other writers I enjoy include Chuck Palahniuk, J M Coetzee and K. Sello Duiker. A healthy body creates a healthy mind that can write creatively. A lot of mine when not writing is spent running, working out or playing squash. I live with 6 other sentient beings, 4 of whom are furry felines who seem to run the place. Not well, but they put up with us. I love to hear from my readers so please write to me!
