About this title.
"Facing a reality that undermined everything he believed in, Sean needed answers. Answers that would reconcile his mind and clear him of the woman's death.
The truth taught him that what the eye sees and the mind believes are not one. Maddie taught him that no passage through life is without it's doors."
Raw Spirit is a companion volume to Bad Blood and Time Out and as before, it is not a sequel but a separate story that shares some common ground.
There is a rather strong romantic element to this story, but in essence it is a crime mystery. The principal characters, constrained by their connection to a murder investigation, become involved in another, more esoteric investigation of their own.

About this Author.
[Shortlisted for the Sir Julius Vogel Awards - Best New Talent - 2009]
Born in England in 1946, I moved to New Zealand with my parents and older brother at the age of four and, apart from five years in my late twenties spent travelling the globe, have lived here ever since. After a fairly rudimentary education, I found work as an Architectural Designer and this became a life-long occupation. I started writing late in 2006.
The books I write are intended in the first instance to tell a good story and secondly – once the tale is told – to leave the reader with something to ponder. To this end, all my stories attempt to provide an original take on some commonly held belief, be it cultural, social or scientific.
Being a fan of both science fiction and classic murder mysteries, these tend to be common themes, with elements of both often combined in a single story.
As a person who likes to read a book in a single sitting, I limit each work to around forty-five or fifty thousand words. Unfashionable I know, but it's what I prefer.
