Furst and Mayne: Book 1
by eM Douglas Wade
Boer War-tormented, retired British Army sergeant and story’s chronicler, Abaddon Mayne, aids the relentless American detective, Siderus Furst, troubled by physical impairment and grieved by personal loss, in a race against time chasing desperate murdering fiends bent on capital crime in Victorian England. The two must stop the phantom maniac and his
henchman before they can sell the stolen plans for weapons of
unimaginable killing power to unwitting arms manufacturers. Will the
patriotic duo prevail and save the world? Will justice and fair play win the day, or will the call for revenge consume the determined pursuers?

veteran, he served in West Berlin in the 1960s. He lives in historic Stratham, New Hampshire, with his wife, Barbara.
He has written poetry, a prize-winning creative-nonfiction story, and a prize-winning short story, but his passion has always been writing longer historical fiction. Wade received his Master of Arts degree in English and Creative Writing with a Fiction concentration from Southern New
