In The Absence Of Passion

By Michael James Stewart

Crime & mystery | Paperback, eBook


Paris Police Inspector Gilbert Beaubien’s frustrated efforts to solve the murder of an odious, yet famous, Louvre art restorer, is inextricably intertwined with world-renown, multi-billionaire, Toronto-based, Faison Quay VI, and his quest to locate the missing award-winning photojournalist, Passion Pomeroy, mother of Faison’s son’s fiancée. Utilizing his vast wealth of contacts and money, Faison travels across Europe in his attempt to unravel the deepening mystery of Passion’s disappearance and an increasing number of seemingly unrelated murders. Fast paced and, oft-times, humourous, the story presents the reader with an abundance of clues, while informing and challenging them to solve the deepening mystery, In The Absence Of Passion.



A native of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, I have spent my life as a renaissance man, combining my passion for joie de vivre with the dictum of “travel is the best form of education, by living in the United States, England, the Caribbean; and by travelling Europe, Turkey, South America and Mexico, where I met the powerful, famous, and humourous as well as politicians, charlatans, scamps, roués and the desperate. Having enjoyed a varied life, I have worked in theatre and television in my youth; been a Fashion Buyer, Structural and Interior Designer, Motivational Speaker, and been in executive positions for a number of businesses and not-for-profit organisations, in my middle years; to presently being an Image & Etiquette Consultant, working with both corporations and individuals, as well as authoring and publishing Clod To Suave – The Etiquette, Manners, Grooming & Dressing, Make—Over Handbook and accompanying university-level seminar series; along with being a prolific writer of three comedic stage plays and six original Faison Quay Murder Mysteries: “Now That I’m Gone”, “In the Absence of Passion”, “Narcissus’ Reflection”, “One By One”, “The First Stone”, “Harcourt’s Legacy”, “Perfection”, “Final Curtain” and “Checked In / Checked Out”.
