A Place of Strangers
By Geoffrey Seed
When a successful TV journalist returns for Christmas to the decaying Tudor mansion where his step-parents live something is not right. Approaching death, they are reserved and enigmatic, as if they are determined to take one last secret with them to the grave.
He suspects that they have lied to him about who his real parents were – and what happened to them.
And so begins an investigation that will reveal his past – and determine his future.
As he digs deeper, he starts to uncover a terrifying conspiracy – one of murder and revenge, with its roots in the greatest crime in history, the Holocaust.
Inspired by a story Geoffrey Seed investigated as a journalist, ‘A Place of Strangers’ is a stunning, literary thriller that combines history and suspense. It will appeal to followers of writers such as Robert Harris, Alan Furst and Alan Judd.
“Intelligent, seamless and satisfyingly complex with a whiff of Le Carré.” – Patrick Malahide.
Geoffrey Seed is a journalist who worked for the Daily Mail and then specialised in producing major TV investigations for programmes such as World In Action and Panorama. ‘A Place of Strangers’ is his first novel.
