The Daedalus Conspiracy

GOOD NEWS! Ed Cline has just made available the first half of his new Cyrus Skeen detective novel on Kindle:

http://www.amazon.com/Daed%C3%A0lus-Conspi...0335&sr=1-1

Don't own a Kindle device? No problem. Just download the free Kindle for PC application.

This is Ed's first wholly new fiction since he finished the great "Sparrowhawk" series! Several other recently published works of his were actually written in the 1980s, before he started work on "Sparrowhawk."

From the description:

Cyrus Skeen, private detective in 1929 San Francisco, is asked by Charles Gilchrest, chairman of The Daedàlus Society, an exclusive men-only club, to go to the The Daedàlus Grove, a private estate north of the city, to determine the nature of some trouble he has been warned about in a cryptic note written by an anonymous member. The note alludes to a controversial Senator from Nebraska and a tariff bill in Congress. It may or may not be a serious threat to the man’s life. It may well predict a fraternity-like prank, or something more serious. The chairman is not sure and wishes to identify the threat and possibly the author of the note. Skeen agrees to attend the two-week encampment of the Society in rustic Monte Rio, an annual event in the redwood forest with a reputation of Dionysian orgies and behind-the-scenes conspiracies to govern the nation. Posing as a writer, at first Skeen feels out of his natural element of the city, but he soon begins to focus on certain individuals and their peculiar behavior, and begins to collect clues. His presence arouses the enmity of many of the eight hundred attendees of the encampment.
