I’ve been on a science fiction kick lately and I love book covers with clocks on them for some reason. Especially old looking clocks. The clock shows a story of time travel, a woman who is obviously part of the story and there is a certain intensity of the cover. Maybe it’s the richness of the colors and the flowing look of the ladies’ hair as she is looking down. Or maybe it is the clock itself that gives off the intensity feel. The title has me intrigued as well. Who is this Mr Lazaus and what is his role in the story? I look forward to finding out!
Mr Lazarus by Patrice Chaplin
Vicky Graham, an unsuccessful film producer at the BBC, crosses the path of Luciano Raffi, a famous violinist, as he performs at the Proms.
For Vicky he represented something she could not have, but something she longingly craved for. A chance to lift her out of the unloving greyness of everyday life.
Through her job at the BBC, she is able to organise an interview with him, but their meeting triggers a renewed obsession with him.
The reason? Luciano has something in common with Vicky – they both know about the portal.
A secret history, nearly untraced, connects these distant souls.
But will it last?
Raffi is about to disappear from her life…
To get him back, she must travel to where and when she had never expected.
She must uncover the secret history of the portal…
