By Stephen R. Campbell
I purchased Gone Tomorrow by Stephen Campbell after reading a post on his Facebook page. I follow his radio show in which he interviews authors and I was rather intrigued to read the he has published his first short story. It takes a huge amount of bravery and what may be a triumphed sense of accomplishment when having your first work go public. Therefore, to establish one’s reading audience is critical. Stephen Campbell writes a captivating novella with mystery, great character development, and which is ultimately well-written.
The Novella begins with Jack and Jessica Stillwell of Naples, Florida who have just discovered the body of neighbor Carmine Santori after returning from an early morning beach run. The reader is immediately engrossed into the plot as Carmine, a son of Italian immigrants, who earned a PhD in engineering from Stanford University and gone to work for Intel has been murdered. With accusations of adultery, questionable business relationships, and financial power the reader will not be disappointed.

In addition, I was rather pleased with the book cover. The red fingerprint silhouette of the gun underneath the Florida image evokes mystery and yellow lettering delivers a cautious feeling. I highly recommend Gone Tomorrow by Stephen Campbell. Campbell has created a witty, quick read, well-suited to those who enjoy an entertaining, well-managed mystery. I highly recommend Gone Tomorrow by Stephen Campbell.
