Raymond Nickford has a degree in Psychology and Philosophy from the University College of North Wales and is a former lecturer in English Literature.     **** Set on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus. A literary and psychological suspense. Aristo's obsessive need to trace and belong to his family - even though he was told they were all burnt and left unidentifiable during the Turkish invasion of Cyprus - has estranged his English wife, and is gradually distancing his only child, while in turn, Pavlos has an increasing need to belong to a father who will make time for him. As the practices at Papas’ late-night museum ‘staff meetings’ unfold themselves to Pavlos, the boy is led deeper into a sinister confrontation with what Papas calls his ‘family', but which brings him, through the ancient face-masks and relics, to unquiet souls of Greeks believed to have been thousands of years dead. A strong blend of eeriness, suspense, an outsider's need to belong, the poignancy of lives but where there is still sun to shine between the clouds.

REVIEWS : 'All the characters are built up so stealthily we fail to notice that odd behaviour could develop into obsession and dark foreboding secrets.' Daniel Manning – author of No Compatibility 'Taps into the psychological attributes of its characters.' T. L. Tyson – author of Seeking Eleanor ' Atmospheric, vibrant, spooky page-turner. ' Reay Tannahill - historian, novelist and author of The Seventh Son. ' The sense of atmosphere and place developed is exquisitely detailed. ' Jack Hughes – author of Dawn of Shadows 'The author gives great voice to his characters, describing well their idiosyncrasies. A good story must either go deep or wide, and with Nickford's background in psychology he goes deep within the human condition. Stephen Valentine - author of Nobody Rides for Free ' Beautifully observed characters, atmospheric, intriguing. ' Barbara Erskine – author of River of Destiny 'The meticulous, obsessive nature of paranoia is beautifully depicted.' Jann King – author of Making Connections
