Book Description HTML

World War II. A Lancaster lands at its base in England after bombing Berlin, and a member of the crew is found dead. However, his young wife Daisy finds out that he has been murdered. But she is only a woman, blonde and pretty, and blind since birth: so who is going to listen to her? In the mayhem of the bombing campaign, who even cares? That is why she will have to find the murderer on her own. The trilogy is a story of crime, punishment, and redemption, and at the same time a portrait of the twentieth century as witnessed by a remarkable blind woman. In volume one Daisy Hayes takes us along with her through World War II. The second book brings us to the Swinging Sixties in London, and finally the third one to 1989, the year the Berlin wall came down.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Nick Aaron

I was born in South Africa, where I went to a British-style boarding school. Later my family and I moved to Lausanne (Switzerland), and I continued my education in French. When I was twelve, I remember that I wrote some poetry, four poems about the seasons, admittedly a rather banal subject, except I'd recently moved from the tropics and the concept of four seasons was completely new to me. Not to mention the French language. Anyway, my teacher was so impressed he asked me to recite one of my poems in front of the whole class. After this first literary triumph, the writing bug never left me. Recently, after writing in Dutch and French for many years, I've gone back to the language of my South African childhood. Obviously the potential for a global readership was something of an incentive, and the idea of a blind sleuth was pretty exciting. Talk about a brainwave! The character of Daisy Hayes came to life in my mind almost wholly formed. The rest is history. Or just read the stories...
