SACRAMENTO, Calif., Oct. 30, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- E. Wayne Cundiff, a semi-retired high school history teacher, married father of one, and lifelong trivia buff from California, has completed his new book "Lavender and Steel": an absorbing crime novel.

Author Cundiff writes about the story: "A crime so gruesome…a man so mild…the pieces didn't fit. Follow the lives of highly divergent characters—an abrasive professor leading a dark double life in the decadent parts of town. A lost soul, a teenager who wanders into his tangled web. A gentle actor and dancer, and a haunted former student trying to make peace with his past. The paths of all four cross and lead them into grim circumstances, including a vicious crime, a courtroom drama and a reflection of the lives of all involved."

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, E. Wayne Cundiff's new book is an unsparing, provocative story that brings the reader to the edge of their seats. Employing multiple narrative strands and skipping backward and forward in time, Cundiff pieces together a tale where the sum is unquestionably more shocking than its parts.

Readers who wish to experience this bold work can purchase "Lavender and Steel" at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
