Aug. 15, 2012 - PRLog -- Imagine a piece of musical machinery so incessant and damagingly loud that it has to be destroyed, its players killed. A single manuscript account of its fate survives. Take a scholar so obsessed with the story that he too will murder, and burn his college to escape with the manuscript and recreate the monstrous contraption.

Then, three hundred years later, an unscrupulous academic despoils a library, steals the manuscript and tries to persuade a young mathematician see if, perhaps, the original instrument can be rebuilt . . .

Add to this an archaeological team that thinks it has uncovered the truth, a narrator who is unsure how to begin, an author who knows the only way to write a proper historical novel, and you have Scrundle, an absurdist story about music, murder, fire, fraud, theft, the meaning of history, and how to eat toast.

"Three related threads of the story of the Scrundle…are spun together to connect the 14th, the 17th and the 20th centuries in a tale of avarice, greed, arson and murder with a liberal measure of venal self-interest for added spice. Ironically amusing, the novel is at once superlatively imaginative and historically authentic—the product of its author's meticulous scholarship. Absolutely not to be missed by anyone with a historical bent. Read on and be entertained and informed as you follow the blood-stained tale of this musical weapon of mass destruction." – Roger Coombs, review from www.amazon.com

Author Alison Lynde was educated in Switzerland and now lives in France and England.
