R S Bristowe amalgamates real history and myth in his new novel
Set in the heart of Cambridgeshire, Pariah is the debut novel from author R S Bristowe.
Set in Cambridgeshire, Pariah follows the story of Eddie Boyle, who has recently inherited the apparently worthless title of tenth Marquess of Exwick.
The author centres the book on the search for the priceless ancient treasure of the Fen Tigers. After an intriguing phone call from a clergyman in Cambridgeshire, Eddie arrives in the village of Herne Fen. He soon encounters worrying behaviour from the locals but before Boyle learns any more about the village, the vicar disappears. What begins as a routine search for a missing person soon becomes a murder hunt, with the case linking to current deaths and much earlier murders.
A trail of death, mutilation and terror leads to a search for the priceless ancient treasure of the Fen Tigers. Throughout the novel the author uses fragments of letters and articles threaded into the narrative to add an extra dimension to the tale.
“There is a blend of real history, myth and invented history throughout the novel,” explains the author.“It’s part crime thriller, part mystery with a drizzle of horror which results in a definite page-turner.”
Copies of Bristowe's thrilling mysery Pariah are available upon request from Matador.
