And If Thine Eye Offend Thee is a story about a mystery solving doctor detective private investigator, Dr. MacArthur Donne, from Austin, Texas. Dr. Donne, and his rambunctious side kick and good friend, Jack Robbie, are called to Biggin Hill, England, a small town south of London, in the midst of the mysterious Mad Cow epidemic by Mr. Malcomb Lindsay to investigate the cause of his wife’s death.Hampered by the recent death of his own wife, Jenny, but energized by the mysterious prospect of the case before him, Dr. Donne and Jack fly from Austin to England. Without encouragement, Mr. Lindsay’s daughter, Rosamonde, comes to Dr. Donne’s bedroom one night. After listening to Rosamonde express her anguish over a previous seduction and abortion from years earlier, Dr. Donne works with her and a Catholic priest to resolve her persistent angry emotions. An interview with Mrs. Martha Lindsay’s medical doctor didn’t help Dr. Donne. Her doctor just assumed she had died, like many of his previous patients of plain old Alzheimer’s disease, but what happened to Dr. Donne that day at Mass when a flash of lightening reflected into his eyes from the sword of Michael the Archangel?What killed Mrs. Lindsay? How did she die? The suspense created by this question is great and the only way to find out is read And If Thine Eye Offend Thee.Written in the style of great literature and fiction and reminiscent of many thrillers of doctors who turned into private investigators, And If Thine Eye Offend Thee harkens back to the days of Conan Doyle.“Watson, the game is afoot,” as Sherlock Holmes goes to Texas.
