In Mark Patton's "The Haunting of Westminster Abbey," you get a madcap romp through British history, metaphysics, zoology, various London landmarks. And puns. Lots of puns. "The Haunting of Westminster Abbey" is an original fiction that intelligently combines royal history, psychopathology and stories deeply rooted in popular culture. "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 "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 About the Story: The foundation of Westminster Abbey rests upon what was once an island - an island that was holy to the Celts and the Romans long before the first Christian Church was built upon it in the eighth century. The church is now home to a community of dead monarchs, nobles, scientists, composers, soldiers, authors, poets and politicians buried within the Abbey. And their ghosts are all under the command of Reverend Poda-Pirudi. As if leading the dead isn't challenging enough for the good Reverend, he invites a hapless architect, Wallace Butterfield, to visit him at his office in the Triforium of Westminster Abbey with a promise to pay for some much-needed work. Butterfield, who thinks it's the offer of a lifetime, believes he is finally moving up in the world - even though the meeting is scheduled at Westminster's Triforium in the middle of the night! Unbeknownst to the architect, a coven of absinthe-drinking witches conspires to intervene in Butterfield's strange meetings with the Reverend. They want what Butterfield has (though Butterfield doesn't know what it is) and they are willing to do anything (kidnapping, torture, even burning him at the stake) to get it. Set inside Westminster Abbey, England's enduring symbol of unity and crowned culture, a community of ghosts, whose remains rest inside the iconic building, arise at the bidding of a strange cleric. The book is well researched and incorporates many of the legends associated with the abbey. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: At nineteen Mark Patton shipped aboard the Research Vessel Chain as a helmsman for the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. By his mid-twenties he was flying out of Otis Air Force Base for the National Marine Fisheries Service on weekly North Atlantic Fisheries patrols. After graduating from Northeastern University, he became a roughneck for Delta Drilling in the Texas oil patch. He left Texas to become a police officer and later a head of Natural Resources on Cape Cod. Now retired, he devotes his time between the mountains of northern New Hampshire and his home on Cape Cod, where with his cellist wife, he composes music and pursues his longtime passion for writing. PRAISE: "This read is an amazing and fascinating read!" - Amazon Customer "The closest comparison I can think of is "The Brentford Trilogy " by Robert Rankin, although the finale has distinct echoes of Douglas Adams." - jonxboy The Haunting of Westminster Abbey is an excellent adventure into the bizarre world and mind of the author. Highly Recommended.

A monkey on his back? After Wallace Butterfield's father's death, 'Butterfield and Son Architects' becomes, for all intents and purposes, 'Son - Newly Graduated - Without a Clue - Architect - Maybe'! With his inheritance sold to get the architectural business on its feet, Butterfield eagerly desires to add a major architectural project to his curriculum vitae. (Critics describe his previous project, le Mareschal's Supermarket, a large unimpressive glass and chrome rectangle - though some shoppers have told Butterfield that they appreciate the large inventory of groceries and home products.) When Butterfield gets a call from the Reverend Poda-Pirudi, chairman of the Westminster Abbey Foundation, he overlooks the fact that the Reverend can only meet with him in the middle of the night - in an office located in the dark and cluttered attic of the Abbey itself. Butterfield thinks he's finally moving up in the world. However, the interred ghosts of Westminster Abbey haven't yet weighed in; and a local group of WITCHes (Women In Therapeutic Chemical Healing - who aren't above kidnapping) have also taken a special interest in the architect. To top everything off, invitations to join the party were also sent to Edward the Confessor, Sir Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin, and Aleister Crowley!

A crisis of faith! By the year 2075 most of the western world has converted to the religion of the Church of the Second Coming. From its humble beginnings, as the figure of Christ began to appear all around the globe, the Church has grown to achieve absolute world power. But rumors surround the Church of the Second Coming, and hint, like so many regimes before it, of deeply held secrets and the use of brutal power to quiet ‘those who oppose.’ When David Dyson, a devout priest working for the Church, and a true believer of the Second Coming, is interviewed by a tough female reporter about the outrageous rumors surrounding the Church, Dyson discovers that his whole life may have been built around a lie. Will his crisis of faith reveal the Church of the Second Coming's shocking secrets? You'll be surprised by the revelation and shocked by the misunderstanding of the Church of the Second Coming. Yesterday’s Savior is a reminder, particularly relevant in this day and age, that freedom is worth fighting for.

Dirty, dangerous, pristine, and opulent. Welcome to West Marque. The Call has gone out, summoning the Fifth Wheel to the Holy City, Jonah’s Sword. There, they prepare to take their sacred oath as knights-of-the-realm. The Marshals, the Marshals’ Men and even the High Marshal himself, Ablechance Mainhouse, will attend. The oath swearing occurs only once every twenty years and is often accompanied by change…and sometimes war. The realm has enjoyed peace for nearly two decades under Mainhouse but the bitter taste of defeat still lingers in the mouths of his old rivals. Many would like to see the old man removed from the High Seat, including Genevieve Goodregard, the Lady of Seawall. Genevieve desires to see her husband as High Marshal and herself as High Lady. She has worked hard to this end with the help of the scheming and powerful bishop, Michael. For Genevieve, the Call is much more than the swearing of an ancient oath. It is a call to action. The chips are down, the important players are gathered, and it is time for her to play her hand. It is a time for her to go All In.

The thrilling new novel from the acclaimed author of Murder on Mustique, based on the childhood described in her international bestseller Lady in Waiting. January 1950. Lady Anne Coke, daughter of the 5th Earl of Leicester, is in Scunthorpe on a business trip when she is called home after a sudden death in the family. She returns to Holkham Hall to discover a mystery: her beloved grandfather has been found dead at the bottom of a flight of stairs with a valuable piece of jewellery in his pocket. No one can find a cause of death, and some even suspect foul play from the ghost who supposedly haunts the house. But Anne's suspicions are aroused; she grew close to her grandfather when they lived together during the war and she is determined to discover the truth. During World War II, Holkham Hall was an army base with large sections out of bounds, and 11-year-old Anne was in the care of a new governess, whom she hated and believed to be deceitful. Although she had been told to stay away from certain parts of the house, Anne used the secret passageways and the cellars to move around unnoticed. And something she saw then could unlock the mystery of her grandfather's death now ... Full of rich historical detail, this is a gripping novel of wartime secrets, intrigue and deceit.
