From a Distance

A novel by

".....Clem's anger was like a lion on a piece of string lately. The stupidity of people was not just an annoyance to him or even an amusing aside to life, it was becoming a public danger......"

Security is more than a job to Clem Kennedy, it is a calling, he is therefore disturbed when his security firm begin losing contracts to their less diligent rivals. When an abandoned carrier bag at the local shopping mall becomes a full scale terrorist bomb alert Clem thinks he is the only man in town with his eye fixed on reality. Surrounded by a small team of employees he knows he can trust Clem wages his own small war on petty crime, determined to be the one good man who did something.

Praise for Helen Slavin

..." A clever, concise and original debut about life, loss and love. " Kirkus Review

"....Ultimately, Slavin has something more subversive up her sleeve than mere entertainment: in conjuring a world of ghosts... she wickedly skewers a society whose obsession with the afterlife shortchanges life itself." - The New York Times
