‘We have a dead second wife and a missing first wife…we’ve got a huge problem here.’ Detective Peter Seymour Seven Bones is the story of one of the more bizarre murder investigations in Australia’s history. Two wives die in suspicious circumstances: co-incidence or, as husband Thomas Keir describes it, ‘bad luck’? Three years after Thomas Keir alleged his first wife Jean deserted him and her young son for another man, his second wife Rosalina, Jean’s cousin, lay scorched and strangled on her bed. Arriving on the scene, Detective Peter Seymour realised he was either dealing with the world’s unluckiest husband, or a serial wife killer. While Keir was remarkably found ‘not guilty’ of Rosalina’s murder, despite a clear-cut case, her death unlocked the mystery of Jean’s disappearance. A subsequent police investigation lead to the discovery of seven small fragments of Jean’s bones - fingers, knuckles and toes - buried deep under the same house in which Rosalina died. Keir’s ‘grieving husband’ act was suddenly in question. The investigation revealed Thomas Kier was a man so jealous he hated even his own baby son touching his wife, Jean. A man so possessive he threatened he would cut her up and feed her to the dogs if she ever left him. A man who thought he could commit the perfect crime and publicly taunted the police through the media. Written through the eyes of Detective Peter Seymour, Seven Bones follows his relentless pursuit of justice and his own family sacrifices, through the drama of the police investigation into Jean’s death, and the three trials, convictions, and appeals that would take fifteen years to reach their final conclusion.

" West Virginia boasts an unusually rich heritage of ghost tales. Originally West Virginians told these hundred stories not for idle amusement but to report supernatural experiences that defied ordinary human explanation. From jealous rivals and ghostly children to murdered kinsmen and omens of death, these tales reflect the inner lives—the hopes, beliefs, and fears—of a people. Like all folklore, these tales reveal much of the history of the region: its isolation and violence, the passions and bloodshed of the Civil War era, the hardships of miners and railroad laborers, and the lingering vitality of Old World traditions.

"Award-Winning Finalist in the "Religion: Christian Inspirational" category of the 2011 International Book Awards" This is a remarkable story. A newly retired schoolteacher goes to live in the countryside in the County of Clare in western Ireland. There he meets and gets to know a recent immigrant, an enigmatic character by the name of Gunna Dan. The hapless and helpless visitor begs to be told what life is all about in his new adopted abode and what it is that gives meaning and purpose to our existence here on planet Earth. What follows is a powerful exposition of discussion and argument. We witness a revelation of thoughts and ideas. We experience the pursuit of knowledge close up. We take part in a journey that leads us into new worlds of enlightenment and understanding; of purpose and meaning; of wisdom and kindness; of truth and spirituality; of religion and Christianity. And all of this happens within a wonderful medley of memory and reminiscence; of history and culture; of art and science; of philosophy and mysticism. The presentation of viewpoints and arguments is daring and evocative, to the extent that readers will be delightfully challenged to more positively re-examine the great importance of their own personal existence here on planet Earth.
