“Not being a big fan of twisted thrillers, it was with some misgivings that I fired up my kindle app to begin reading the Desolate Garden. After reading the opening line I was hooked. "The first time I saw her was three days after I was told that my father had died.“ The attraction between Judith Meadows from the Home Office and Lord Harry plays with the give and take of a rubber band throughout the book, pushing and pulling at each other’s emotions, meanwhile there is a murderer to be found and a spy to be flushed out. The story is twisted with fascinating snippets of international intrigue and crises but what I enjoyed most was Kemp’s wonderful use of words. I didn’t just read the story I felt it.

I have not yet finished this great first novel by Danny Kemp, a new author who I hope we will see more of in the future. So far, I am enthralled by this wonderful book. The storytelling is wonderful and takes into another world, and well captured this readers imagination. I can recommend this book to any avid reader. And, I hope we see more from this author. I cannot give five stars, yet, because I don't know what is yet to come. If you haven't bought it yet, what's holding you back?

Is there a traitor in the family? Lord Harry Paterson is about to be thrust into a world of spies, political and financial machinations when the deaths of his father and brother come under investigation. Working with the British Secret Service, Harry will discover international and family skeletons buried in history, but he never imagined the twisted truth or how close the enemy would get. Daniel Kemp’s THE DESOLATE GARDEN has it all, mystery, history, murder, espionage and even a hint of romance. Dry humor, keen wit and a suspenseful journey to finding the truth, Mr. Kemp’s signature style comes through once again in this riveting and gritty tale. Suspense readers who like their stories to keep them knee-deep in intrigue without easy answers are going to be mesmerized from start to finish. Wonderfully drawn characters, rich in personality and depth, brilliant storytelling and dark, dark secrets...what's not to like?
