Overview

Romance Amidst Chaos...

Wallace Butterfield, British architect, knew that he has been a failure at nearly everything, including relationships. But what he didn't know — couldn't know — was that he was special. He would have been amazed to know how exceptional he really was.

Wallace's only hope is an invitation from Reverend Poda-Pirudi, chairman of the Westminster Abbey Foundation, London, England, to bid on the design for a new tower for the Abbey.

Unfortunately a coven of absinthe-drinking Witches have taken an interest in the architect special quality and have decided that they will do anything (kidnapping, torture, or even burning at the stake) to get what they want from him.

What do the Witches want? Will they succeed in burning Wallace at the stake? Who is Reverend Poda-Pirudi and what can he do to try to save Wallace?

PRAISE:

"As a neuroscientist, I was fascinated by the way the author parts from a serious mental illness and develops an interesting and historically sound theme that, not only, explains the problem in a whimsical way and posts different ways of containing it (my favorite is "Absinthe"), but also reaches out to the most defiant questions that we all have." - Clemens Bauer

"The Haunting of Westminster Abbey" is an original fiction that intelligently combines royal history, psychopathology and stories deeply rooted in popular culture.

"The closest comparison I can think of is "The Brentford Trilogy " by Robert Rankin, although the finale has distinct echoes of Douglas Adams." - jonxboy

"It's a fun, wild, ghost story that I was sorry to see end. I really enjoyed it quite a lot. 5 out of 5 stars." - Emily, amazon
