“…a suspenseful, pitch-perfect novel with an unlikely lead detective: a fictionalized version of iconic Argentine writer Jorge Luis Borges… An intelligent, original detective novel.”– Kirkus Reviews.

Cambridge, Massachusetts, 1967. The blind poet Jorge Luis Borges, visiting at Harvard, faces a crisis of conscience and identity as he and his young assistant Nick Martin grapple with an extraordinary series of crimes and the equally baffling conundrums of literature and philosophy. Forty-five years later, struggling with pain and grief, Nick Martin looks back with wonder at that magical time and asks himself: Did he ever find out who Borges really was?

Lighthearted but deeply serious, The Philosophical Detective is a unique journey into the visionary world of a genius.

THE PHILOSOPHICAL DETECTIVE RETURNS on sale this week for 99 cents!

THE PHILOSOPHICAL DETECTIVE RETURNS — the sequel to THE PHILOSOPHICAL DETECTIVE – is on sale this week on Amazon for 99 cents (ebook). This book was published in March 2020 at the beginning of the Covid madness and most people understandably had other things on their minds. This is the first time it has been offered for less than the usual $3.99.

An ancient ring stolen from a Holocaust victim. A stuffed raven that once belonged to Charles Dickens. An extra body in the New York City Morgue. Only one man could follow these clues to a solution: the legendary Jorge Luis Borges.

“… highly recommended for classic detective story enthusiasts who look for complexity and intellectual challenges in their characters and stories.” – Midwest Book Review

Two years after their collaboration chronicled in The Philosophical Detective, Nick Martin again falls under the spell of the blind poet and fabulist who calls himself Jorge Luis Borges. Together they must solve a baffling series of murders, find the fabled Ring of Solomon, and rescue the raven that inspired Edgar Allan Poe. Once again Nick plays the parts of Watson, Sancho Panza and Dante as he threads his way through Borges’s conundrums to the shocking truth.

Like its predecessor, The Philosophical Detective Returns is a lighthearted but deeply serious journey into the visionary world of a genius.
