NEW AMAZON SINGLE JUST OUT!
Granelli leaves quality crime fiction to go back to his literary roots with this short story in Amazon Single form.
The Mark of Pain is a tale of pain, suffering, and great human conflict but it is also an uplifting story of salvation and redemption. Adam Hope, an African trader still trying to come to terms with the horrors of The First World War, encounters Albert Schweitzer, who was to become one of the most celebrated humanitarians of the twentieth century for his work in the leper colony and hospital he set up at Lambarene. The Mark of Pain tells the graphic story of what happened when these two very different men met up and worked together to avoid a tragedy.
