M.L. Sanford Releases New Suspense Thriller, AUGUSTE AND THE CONDITIONM.L. Sanford Releases New Suspense Thriller, AUGUSTE AND THE CONDITION
by BWW News Desk - Aug 24, 2015

M.L. Sanford's debut fiction novel, 'Auguste and The Condition,' is available on major online sites including Amazon and Goodreads, as well as the author's website. Reviewer Charla White, of WordsAPlenty book reviews, described it as 'action-packed... keeping the reader hooked throughout' and 'highly recommends this book with 5 stars.' Sanford stated, 'Readers will fall in love with the main characters, Auguste Kensley, Raj and Jasmine Safaya, and discover a special connection to their inner personal struggles over career and work. But nobody's career change was ever like this. Auguste journeys from the harsh New York City streets to the exotic settings of Kashmir, India, giving the reader an intense sensual adventure, dripping in rich detail.' The book introduces Auguste Kensley, an only child, fatherless and poor. Auguste struggles to survive the rough neighborhoods of Brooklyn, New York City in the 1960's and 70's. He and his boyhood friend Raj survive and eventually thriving despite the odds against them. Auguste takes what few opportunities come his way, only to reach a dead end in his newly gained career as a freelance writer for tabloids. Faced with a career ending choice and unable to see a solution, he and Raj travel abroad together, but for entirely different reasons. Auguste hopes the new setting and a break from the fast paced cut throat life as a freelance writer will give him a new perspective, opening his mind to other possibilities. Instead he tumbles into a hurricane of new emotions on the other side of the world, finding new love, and loss, despair and desperation. He survives a kidnapping and captivity only to find his freedom is not without consequences; life and death ones. He must complete The Condition, the task required by his captors in order to obtain his release. But the task may result in someone's death. 'Auguste and The Condition,' explores the deep psychological terror of captivity itself, illustrated in an emotionally charged climax, and the cruel and subtle manipulations a victim can suffer in freedoms aftermath. M.L. Sanford is a freelance writer and author, living in Decatur, Georgia for the past thirty years. At the culmination of a thirty-four year career as an Architect, Mark wanted a change. Since then, Mark has put his heart and soul into a writing career, creating stories that enlighten, delight and even fright. All of his novels contain some level of mystery or suspense, sometimes dark, and sometimes set at places around the world. His writing style has hints of, and similarities to, H.P. Lovecraft and Edgar Allen Poe. The author states; 'I suppose my architectural background has something to do with that. My sense of scene details and spatial awareness, a skill needed in architecture, seems to come out in my writing. I hope it adds another layer to the reader's experience and enjoyment of my stories.'
