The Night the Souls Were Left

Seth Kenlon

Book Overview: 

The year is 1947. The American Union has won its war against Japan, and forged an alliance with the Fuhrer's European Reich. The world is on the verge of exciting technological breakthroughs: the internet, plastic, the European Interstate highway, 24-hour surveillance, and the new-and-improved Atom Shift bomb.

But Natalie Ferris-Brunet has personal problems to deal with. She awakens on the floor of the men's restroom in the posh Liberty Hotel, and can't remember the last four days. And stranger still, a mysterious nightclub singer tries to start an architectural revolution. A marble statue comes to life.

Police detective Joseph Meyers takes her unusual case and it leads them both down a path of conspiracy, extortion, and intrigue.

"The Night That Souls Were Lost" is an alternate history noir story about art, reality, existence, life, social responsibility, architecture, city design, and happiness. It will re-define how you see your world, and how you choose to construct it.

"Yes, that would be fine. Do you know the French café on Murray and Forbes?"

"Yes," he said, "a couple of blocks down from Fitzgerald and Bruborn?"

"That's the one. I'll get an outside table."

"I know it well. Give me a half an hour."

Natalie arrived at the French café well within a half an hour. She took an outside table and ordered herself a light tea. It was delivered to her with no particular promptness and she began drinking it with a similar attitude. To pass the time, she took out some papers from her job and glanced over them. Her mind wasn't on her work, though, and after fifteen . . . Read More
