January 2013 Debut of the Month.
This part crime novel, part sci-fi book is highly recommended - but it’s one where you really don’t want to know too much of the plot or a lot of the book is spoilt. It’s devious, dark, and audacious and definitely worth a read.
Rewind - Once upon a time in Ohio there lived an elderly recluse, 'the man from Primrose Lane'. He had no friends or family. He wore mittens all year round. And one summers day, he was murdered. Fast-Forward - Bestselling author David Neff is a broken man, lonely, desolate and lost ever since his wife's suicide. But something about the man from Primrose Lane grabs his attention and he decides to investigate the mystery - only to be dragged back into a world he thought he had left behind forever. Replay - As David gets closer to uncovering the true identity of the man from Primrose Lane, he begins to understand the terrible power of his own obsessions and how they may be connected to the deaths of both the hermit and his beloved wife.
