Trouble Tree
John Hill Porter

5" x 7 3/4" • 322 pages
ISBN 9781405071055 • paperback • $11.95

Who shot Ben Cumberbatch in the head, and why? Who killed his father? Were the two murderous assaults connected? And how did Ben's Bajan uncle Clarence come to fall off a cliff? Was the fire that razed Glenville House caused by accident - or by arson?  Would Ben ever recover his memory and work out why his harmless family was being slowly eliminated, one by one?

At the time he was shot, Ben was a detective in the Arson Squad of the New York Police Department. But his investigations into a string of mysterious occurrences kept leading him back to his family's black and redleg origins in Barbados, where rape and slaughter had founded the Glenville fortunes. Along the way, Ben renewed childhood acquaintances, made new enemies, risked death and disaster, and rediscovered the love of his life.

John Hill Porter was born in the USA during the Depression. He studied International Relations on scholarship at the University of Pennsylvania, and spent 2 years as a Special Agent in the US Army Counterintelligence Corps. In 1970 he joined the US Peace Corps as Director of Public Affairs, travelling to Africa, Latin America and Jamaica. Since retirement in 1992 he and his wife have resided in Barbados. His previous essays in publication include The Weather Conspiracy (1977) and Urban Fairs and Festivals (1981). Trouble Tree is his first work of fiction.
