RED STAG: A NOVEL Set in Normandy, France, in the 1960s, Red Stag is a lush, rich novel. Nineteen-year-old bastard Vincent has just returned from boarding school to work on the Counts estate, where his uncle is gamekeeper, where Vincent himself was raised, where his mother, until her early death, was the Countesss maid. Shortly after his return, his uncle is viciously murdered. Vincent vows revenge. It is also deer hunting season, and the village is wild with anticipation about this years ritualized Royal Hunt for the giant red stag. This red stag defies all hunters, outsmarting them, and then outrunning their horses and hounds. The Counts daughter, Nicole, returns to the estate as well. She, too, is nineteen. These childhood friends havent seen each other in years. As the search for the murderers identity intensifies, and the Royal Hunt approaches, Nicole and Vincent find themselves inexorably drawn to each other. The three-pronged plot gains momentum, reaching a thrilling, violent, graphic conclusion, which reveals startling truths about Vincents parentage and the potential for both extreme cruelty and friendship within the human heart. Red Stag is wonderfully atmospheric and exotic, full of rich descriptions of wildlife and the rivers and woods of Normandy. It is beautifully written, near cinematic in its clarity, highly suspenseful, and utterly unforgettable.WHAT THE EXPERTS ARE SAYING:In praise of For a Handful of Feathers:Beautifully written and conceived . . .
