Be sure to catch the entire interview with Assaph Mehr later today. Mr. Mehr is the author of Murder in Absentia.
“Murder in Absentia is set in a fantasy world. The city of Egretia borrows elements from a thousand years of ancient Roman culture, from the founding of Rome to the late empire, mixed with a judicious amount of magic. This is a story of a cynical, hardboiled detective dealing with anything from daily life to the old forces roaming the world.
This is a story of Togas, Daggers and Magic – it will appeal to lovers of murder mysteries, ancient Rome and fantasy.”
The reviews are all positive.
“It was hard to put this book down once I started reading, and even after I had finished, my thoughts lingered in the world of Felix the Fox in Ancient Rome.” – Barbara Underwood
“It should be said up front that there are precious few indie authors whose works I have agreed to read for review purposes and come away thoroughly entertained by. Mr. Mehr, blissfully, is a new member of that small circle.” – Joshua T. Calkins-Treworgy
“I thought this book was brilliant; it’s a murder/mystery book in a pure fantasy world drawing on themes from Roman culture and i have to thank the author for the chance to read/review the story. I won’t lie.. I wasn’t sure if setting a murder mystery in a more historical time point would work.. but it did.” – Bairdy1985
“Hardcore Historical Fantasy – Felix the Fox is Sherlock Holmes in Ancient Times”
— Jonathan Maas, author of City of Gods – by Hellenica
“Mehr is a master alchemist, blending the real and surreal on a captivating flight of fantasy.” – by Cynthia Celmer
