Why did Wynn Staniland, a legend in the literary world, suddenly become a recluse in the 1980s? Most assumed he stopped writing because of his wife's bizarre suicide; a death that mirrored a murder case from the nineteenth century. And now a promising young author called Zac Wilkinson is working on Staniland's biography and hopes to reveal the true story to a waiting world - while at the same time keeping his own troubled past hidden from public view. When Wilkinson is found brutally murdered, DI Wesley Peterson finds links to the unexplained poisoning of a middle-aged couple at a local caravan park - and Wynn Staniland appears to be the connection. As Wesley delves further into the case he suspects a sinister puppet show might provide the solution: a grim re-enactment of the murder of Mary Field, a cause celebre from the reign of Queen Victoria that inspired Staniland's best-known novel. The case becomes personal for Wesley when he discovers his son is involved, and as he begins to unravel decades of secrets and deception, the shocking truth proves almost too much to bear . . .

The Mermaid beside the Stream is a philosophical fiction that depicts an uncommon characteristic of a fledgling entity too soon given to the pursuit of independence. It is a tale about a stripling who desires to be allowed to do things on his own at an age when most children are still totally dependent on their mothers for everything, including blowing their noses. The young one finally got what he was looking for—an opportunity to enjoy a couple of hours of freedom free of adult monitoring. But as almost always happens albeit in disparate forms and shapes to those stubbornly striving for yet unattainable heights, he would encounter a mermaid beside the stream, a terror-inflicting meeting that complicated his world and doomed him and his relatives and friends to a lifetime of adversity. It seeks to look in-depth into family values, the troubles faced by parents in the upbringing of children; it exposes the mistake inherent in the modern trend of not whipping children when they go astray, with an underlying criticism of embracing the white man’s culture at the expense of pure tradition handed down by our African forefathers. It exposes the debilitating effects of fear and seeks to educate and liberate those who have allowed themselves to be shackled by it. This book will appeal to all classes for, like the stages of life, it unfolds with bloodcurdling suspense—life from cradle to early adulthood, with each stage underscored by lively original poetry.
