New Avalon

RMS Press

In a small Pennsylvania town, one of the most famous women in history — a woman who the world has believed dead for almost two decades — is dying.

John Chambers walked away from his life eighteen years ago to become the woman's bodyguard. He gave up everything — including the woman he loved — because he believed that was his destiny.

But destiny has other ideas.

In the tradition of BRIGHT LIGHTS, BIG CITY and A PRAYER FOR THE DYING, NEW AVALON is Robert Swartwood's finest work yet.

Praise for NEW AVALON:

"NEW AVALON is a suspenseful examination of love, loyalty, and identity that gathers steadily in tension and will leave its mark on your heart." —Benjamin Percy, author of THE DEAD LANDS 

"Like middle-period Hitchcock, NEW AVALON opens sedately, slowly revealing an off-kilter world based on the most precarious secrets. Using a sneaky second-person, Robert Swartwood has crafted a satisfying revenge tragedy about identity and destiny." —Stewart O'Nan, author of THE GOOD WIFE
