Fusing everything from blackmail and insanity into one powerful novel, ‘The Pelman Murders’ tells the intricate tale of confused identities and a burning desire for the truth.
Lakewood Ranch, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/31/2013 -- While new to the world of murder mysteries, Gordon Kuhn’s new novel is proof that he is set to become a dominant force in the industry. Boasting all of the facets of a timeless classic, the murder mystery genre is about to be seen in a head-scratching new light.
‘The Pelman Murders’ takes a host of diverse characters and throws them into a setting where finding the truth is harder than it seems.
The Pelman Murders is a book with 12 murders and 10 suspects. It has blackmail, incest, hidden relationships, insanity, confusion over who the father is for two men, an elderly woman who believes a giant mouse or rat is running around in the apartment building, a prostitute who will cut your throat as quickly as she will take your money for sexual favors.
It begins with a murder and ends with a murder. It has law enforcement who might be involved. One woman, a twin, assumed the dead twins identity. There is a love relationship. One man discovers he has a son he didn't know existed. Another discovers his granddaughter has been a part of his life for several years but neither knew of the relationship between them.
As the author explains, his book provides a unique take on the traditional murder mystery.
“Most murder mystery novels start with a murder, spend the middle of book finding out who did it and end with some form of justice. My book starts with a murder and they don’t stop throughout; it even ends with an unexpected death,” says Kuhn.
He continues, “I believe that this makes it totally unique within its genre and a fresh addition to a sector of literature that is often riddled with cliché.”
Since its release, the book has garnered a consistent string of rave reviews.
For example, one reader said that, “Mystery readers will find ‘The Pelman Murders’ an intriguing novel. I'm sure, Gordon Kuhn, a newly published author, will soon be recognized as a writer of much talent.”
With so much success on his hands, Kuhn has plenty more surprises up his sleeve.
“I can’t give too much away yet, but I can say that there will be further books and a lot more bloodshed. Stay tuned,” he adds.
