He trusts everyone, when he shouldn't trust anyone.
How does a man with Asperger’s Syndrome step out of his office, leave behind the safety of his desk and books, and embrace the world he’s always kept at arm’s length? This is the hero’s journey that Daniel Peters must make in The Stages.
All his life, Daniel has hidden behind his reputation as one of the world’s best translators of the iconic philosopher Søren Kierkegaard. When his beloved ex-girlfriend and mentor dies under odd circumstances and a priceless Kierkegaard manuscript goes missing, Daniel turns out to be the last person to have seen her alive. To clear his name, he must leave the safety of his books and venture out into the streets of Copenhagen. He must deal with backstabbing co-workers, inquisitive policemen, and his own terror of intimacy to discover the truth. Along the way, he will be challenged to overcome his own limitations.
Reminiscent of such disparate works as The Name Of The Rose and The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Nighttime, this novel is part literary fiction, part mystery and part philosophical exploration, deftly woven together in a complex, suspenseful, sometimes humorous and ultimately touching narrative.
Under her own name and pseudonyms, Lynn Viehl has published over twenty-five novels with ROC and NAL since her debut novel was published in January 2000. She and her family currently live in Florida.
