A Murder/Mystery that will also help save abandoned/abused dogs, cats etc.

The Mayflower Animal Sanctuary is a registered charity which relies solely on donations and other fund raising enterprises to help with its work in rescuing, caring for, and re-homing hundreds of dogs, cats, rabbits and other small animals every year. In a wonderful gesture towards my favorite charity, the publisher of my latest novel has agreed to donate $1 from every paperback copy sod to the sanctuary. Please, if you enjoy a good old fashioned murder/mystery and want to help the animals at the same time, consider ordering a copy of Behind Closed Doors, which can be pre-ordered from the publisher now, prior to its release at the end of this month. It will of course be available from Amazon etc when eventually released.

The details are as follows:

Some, though not all of my friends here, will know that in addition to my writing, I'm also a dedicated dog lover, rescuer, and owner of a number of rescued dogs of varying breeds. I'm delighted that Sonar 4 Publications, the publisher of my forthcoming novel Behind Closed Doors, a Victorian Murder Mystery, have generously agreed to donate $1 from the sale of every paperback copy sold to The Mayflower Animal Sanctuary who do such wonderful work in rescuing and rehoming dogs, cats and various small animals.I have high hopes that the book will do well and help raise funds for the sanctuary, where 4 of our dogs came from.

The book will be released within the next two months or so, and the publisher has now made it available to pre order at Sonar 4 Publications

In case anyone is wondering what Behind Closed Doors is about...

Autumn, 1888. The population of London is transfixed and horrified by the atrocious and horrific murder spree being conducted by Jack the Ripper. The newspapers are full of the details of the mutilations perpetrated by the killer and the apparent inability of the police to apprehend the unknown assailant. As Metropolitan Police Commissioner, Sir Charles Warren throws the bulk of his investigative resources into the search for The Ripper, and the tabloid press scream of the crimes in banner headlines on a daily basis; on the new, ultra modern Underground Railway that has revolutionized travel around the great metropolis for the working man, another, less well publicized killer is at large.

Tucked away on the inner pages of the daily press, hardly enough to raise an eyebrow among discerning readers, one may have found a few, short articles which told of the strange and also, so far unsolved murders which are taking place on board the carriages of the new-fangled and much heralded transport system. Each murder takes place the day after one of the ripper killings, as the murderer appears to be taking advantage of the lack of police resources to tackle not one, but two, major investigations simultaneously.

Inspector Albert Norris is charged with bringing the railway killer to justice, but, as with case of Jack the Ripper, clues are few, the killer's motive unclear, and he is forced to carry out his investigations 'quietly and without causing a public panic' as the authorities seek to prevent a loss of confidence in the safety of the underground railway system. The press are being told even less, hence the minimal coverage, and Norris can count on little help from above as he attempts to solve the inexplicable series of murders.
