Set 30,000 years ago, Too Long To Die takes us to a prehistoric world where a murder is committed. Lonell, the world's first detective, must solve the crime or die. The Pescovari tribesman has to overcome danger from every quarter and rely on his own unique intuition to save himself and his tribe.
Searching for the missing Guardian, Lonell and another man find his body and are brought before Saretta, the albino High Priestess. The scheming leader of the Enlightened Ones fails to implicate Lonell in the mysterious death but she sends his friend for sacrifice instead. This blatant injustice and an attempt on Lonell's own life drive the world's first detective towards the crime's solution and rebellion against the despotic Saretta.
Lonell and his friend, Valon, overcome the white wolf that guards the innocent man and engineer his escape. Lonell's unusual intelligence and spiritual intuition may help him to sift through the contradictory facts surrounding the murder - yet his own life is always at risk. In search of the source of his intellectual gifts, he and Valon undertake a challenging overland journey but, during their absence, Saretta hires mercenaries to subdue the Pescovari to her will. A day of reckoning awaits, while the contradictory facts surrounding the murder mount in number and complexity, but Lonell and his friends are outnumbered and unprepared for battle . . .
A gripping and provocative read from the start, Too Long to Die is a prehistoric crime thriller with a contemporary heart where spiritual values oppose dominance, cruelty and the menace of selective breeding. Introducing Lonell, the world's first detective, it unfolds against the harsh reality of early man's struggle for survival, whilst celebrating his ingenuity and resilience.
