"Fantastic book lovers' mystery"
Alex Plumtree, owner of Plumtree Publishing in
England, is on his way to America to marry his one and only
love Sarah Richardson in Nantucket. After a brief
honeymoon, the couple plans to visit to Dartmouth College
in New Hampshire to participate in the 1986 reunion.
The honeymoon is perfect but what comes next has them
fighting for their lives. Alex is a bibliophile who is an
expert on Samuel Pepyss the diarist. He isn't a hero with
super power but in the past his love of literature has
gotten him into adventures that could have gotten him
killed. Both Sarah and Alex think this is one such
adventure because Alex had a hint that there were more
papers from the Pepyss diary hidden in Dartmouth. His
friend Mattie, also an alumni of the class of '86, calls
him in England to tell him that she has knowledge of the
Pepyss paper. When they are in the area where the papers
are supposed to be, Alex is beaten and tied up and is on
the run from people who speak with British accents.
UNCATOLOGUED is a fantastic book lovers' mystery
because the actions of the characters ring true. The
teamwork of the honeymooners seems precise and hooks the
audience while serving as an indication that Sarah might
have a bigger role in future works. Julie Kaewert is a
fabulous writer who appeals to both the American and
British amateur sleuth audience.
