Goodreads asked Anthony Eglin:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Anthony Eglin Part of the inspiration came from an event that took place a few years ago, when two rose aficionados touring Alcatraz Island discovered a rare French rose, that had been declared extinct, growing in a wild area, among the brambles and weeds.

I took that single moment and handed it Lawrence Kingston who started to investigate, shocked to discover that he was embroiled in three divergent mysterious and murderous events, spanning sixty years and crossing two continents. But don't let me spoil it for you.
