When Christopher Abbott sat down to pen his debut novel, he had no idea how far his book would go.
Nestled comfortably around the top 20,000 mark on Amazon the twisting tale of Sir Laurance Dies has made its mark on readers, and introduced the world to a mystery writer who has broken away from the Holmes and Poirot mold and created his own unique mix of characters.
This is a beautifully written cozy historical police procedural. I read the Kindle version, and it was clear to me that the occasional typographical error had to do exclusively with the publishing medium. Mr. Abbot’s writing is elegant, and his diction is precise.
