Sometimes droll, sometimes poignant, this heart-warming story follows the unique and important friendship formed when Poppy finds Meg sitting alone on a cliff top. Both women are living with bipolar disorder, and Meg is inspired by how more experienced Poppy is dealing with it.
However, after taking a lover back to Poppy's house, Meg wakes up to discover they have been robbed. As she struggles to put things right, Meg soon finds out that things are not as they first appeared.
In a society in which mental illness is still largely misunderstood, this tale is comforting for those that have been there, eye opening for those who might say, 'Just pull your socks up.'
The Serial Artist
By: George Finney
Some cops are willing to bend the rules when it comes to catching criminals. Detective John Ressler is no different, except the rules he bends are the laws of physics.
The Serial Artist is a gritty detective novel about the hunt for a serial killer who leaves his own original works of art at each of the crime scenes as a calling card. Paintings, sculpture, music. Nobody can explain how he does his art so quickly, often in locked rooms. Nobody can explain how he seems to stay one step ahead of the police, despite all the clues he leaves. And Ressler must stop him or the next artwork will be of someone he loves.
The story follows New York City Detective John Ressler who quickly realizes that there is more to this killer than can be explained by normal police work. The Serial Artist is the first novel by author George Finney and is the first installment of the Relativity Detective series.
