Quiet architect Paul Farrell, wanted for four murders in Paris, escapes to New York with two Interpol agents on his trail. Everything seems wrapped up once Farrell walks off a plane at JFK and into a hail of police gunfire. Then Farrell's eccentric brother, palaeoanthropologist Alan Kedward, steals the body, putting Interpol and an NYPD homicide detective with secrets of his own back on the case.

Now, a sinister figure called the Inquisitor with ancient secrets of his own has taken an interest in Kedward. But Farrell is still dead--isn't he?

You can find out more about ordering Fraterfamilias here.

See reviews for Fraterfamilias at Polka Dot Reviews, Internet Book List and GUD (Greatest Uncommon Denominator Magazine).

ROTFL! Thanks, Linton. It's sort of a private joke. I worked at a zoo a while back that had a grown-up litter of snow leopards. The female in the group was a real character. Had a *very* dry sense of humor.

Happy New Year, and all the best in your writing in 2008.

Wow, you just never know from one minute to the next! I have been published! Three years working on my novel, polishing, revising, reworking, networking... TENACITY! I just wanted to give you the great news!

Vale, Paula, and thanks for the invite!

The story of Fraterfamilias sounds fascinating, and so does your background as a Templar historian! We like many of the same authors, and of course, I give your Latin title two *big* thumbs up!

I'm very sorry about your writing partner, Judith. At least she was able to see your joint work published. The fact that you're carrying on what she started is wonderful. Thanks again, and take care!

Hi Paula! I just love your photo and seem to find myself coming over to your page just to take a better look at the tiger. How has the summer been going for you? Oh yeah, I am going out to Barnes and Nobles to get your book. Looking forward to read it!

Take care,
Kristine (stop by my page sometime, I love company)

Hi Paul. Good to see another snow leopard appreciator (is that the right word?).

I went to Africa in '91 for two years. Can't say I regret it, on balance. But it did change the direction my life went in quite a bit.

Thanks for the condolences, Camilla. I wish she could have lived to see some of the reviews, but at least she was able to finish some more stuff before she went.
