About the Book

In 1949, an architect and amateur magician named George Fenwick was to leap from an apartment building that he had designed and first occupied when it opened in 1936. Twenty six years later, John and Patricia Delaney rented the same apartment that George Fenwick had occupied. For reasons that neither of them were ever able to determine, the mystery of Mr. Fenwick’s suicide appeared to have something to do with certain photographs found in their apartment, photographs an obsession shared by George Fenwick and his father, Richard. Their pursuit of this puzzle would led John and Patricia Delaney through all manner of investigation, from peculiar neighbours, newspaper reporters, policemen, a private detective, magicians, libraries, bookstore owners, and even each other.

About the Author

Mike Robertson has persisted in his pursuit of literary ambition with this, his thirteenth book written and published over the past seventeen years. They range over a significant contrast of narratives and styles, imagination being the sole inspiration and impulse. The Changing Mysteries of Parkdale Court joins three collections of short stories, Castings Shadows, Parts of A Past, and These Memories Clear, three volumes of literary entertainments entitled The Smart Aleck Chronicles, five novels, Gone and Back, The First Communion Murders, The Hidden History of Jack Quinn, Picture Windows, and The Biography of George. In addition, he published an account of his sixty years of playing recreational baseball entitled Innings. Mike Robertson has been writing on one form or another since he was in high school, his efforts at brief composition and poetry precipitating a life long ambition. He is retired and lived in profound anonymity in Ottawa, Canada.
