A Modern Chaser in the World of Social Issues
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, April 6, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Michael Cumiskey published his book, Huntsman, in April of 2020. The story is set in the present. It becomes apparent that the storyteller, Paul, is subject to many of the same insecurities and confusions prevalent in society. He attends the funeral of his estranged mother where he meets one of her ex-colleagues – an interesting older man: James. It is whilst staying in James’ cottage in the far reaches of a Yorkshire moor that Paul meets and becomes associated with the small community who live together around the cottage in an isolated location called the Mount. Supposedly there to complete his latest book, Paul is soon distracted from his task as he is intrigued by the nearby characters and their uncommon beliefs and behaviors.
“Cumiskey’s history of one man’s struggle with his conscience, his principles, his beliefs, and his behavior, along with the incidences that arise from that battle, make not only for involving intellectual stimulation but also for a whole lot of fun.” — Joe Kilgore, US Review of Books.
