About the author:
Christopher D. Abbott is the award winning author of Sir Laurence Dies, Dr Chandrix Dies, and co-author of Revolting Tales (with Todd A Curry). He has a background in human behavioural studies and psychology. Having worked in IT, communications, safety and health, and sales, he gained a good understanding of people and their behaviours. Abbott is a self confessed avid reader of crime fiction, and he took creative writing courses, which fuelled his ambition to publish a character driven crime story. He loves quirky characters such as Rodney David Wingfield's Inspector "Jack" Frost, Agatha Christie's Poirot, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes. The Idea of Dr Pieter Straay, his Dutch Criminal Psychologist, came about by integrating the qualities he admires best in these characters.
Sir Laurence Dies, the 1st book in The "Dies" Trilogy, debuted in 2013, and since then it received a 5 star review from Reader's Favorite. It made the final of Reader's Favorite 2014 book awards for the Mystery - Sleuth category.
Abbott currently live in Connecticut USA. He loves to write and play music, which is another of his passions. He enjoys cooking, hiking, reading in the sun, and is currently at school studying for a degree in psychology. He is also working on his 3rd Dr Straay novel
Sir Laurence Dies
Christopher D. Abbott
Sir Laurence Dies is a murder mystery in the Agatha Christie style. It's a "whodunit"! A story of intrigue, guile and red herrings, half a dozen suspects, and a murder to boot.
Just what is the morose butler, Dawson, hiding behind that stone faced reserve? Why does Lady Agatha Smythe carry around an old photograph of her younger days, and what exactly is her relationship to Major John Heskith? Is Milly Gregson the meek girl she seems to be, and is Desmond DuPont's interest in her more than simply platonic? Is the debonair Doctor Jacob Powell the lady's man that local gossip suggests?
It was never going to be an easy task to put this puzzle together when they don't have all the pieces, or any idea what the picture might be. However that's exactly what Doctor Straay and Chief Inspector Drake must do, if they intend to find the murderer of Sir Laurence Gregson; but can they work together to solve this murder, or will their antithetical differences on psychology and police work stop them before they even start...?
