James Harris has a busy, professional life in Edinburgh, the Scottish capital. He needs a complete break, and returns to the subtropical Island of Madeira, to its capital, Funchal, in spring and autumn. There is a slight air of mystery about Mr James as the locals call him. He likes to be incognito, but also a bit of a socialite. He likes to wine and dine, and considers himself a bit of a gourmet.

His taste in music is electric. His tapping feet can lead him to the dance floor, with relish!

He is not normally an emotional man but, one afternoon, in the square by the cathedral, he has an unexpected and profound emotional experience – a thought-provoking experience.

All his senses are explored on this subtropical island. And, of course, the sight of the vibrant, purple-blue Jacaranda trees features heavily in James’ daily life, as he strolls along the avenues of Funchal.

James is presented with opportunities which he simply cannot refuse, and quite unexpectedly, he becomes the ‘main attraction’ on the dance floor, with the lady of his dreams! 

Does James lead a double life? Mr James can be incognito, a suspected spy, a man of mystery, yet a socialite, and sociable with it! Who exactly is Mr James? 

Roger Geoffrey Carlund is a retired principal teacher. His many travels include regular visits to Madeira and Greece and to places farther afield. He has an honours degree in psychology and three post graduate diplomas. His debut novel, The Funny Little Man, was published in December, 2020. He lives in Aberdeen, Scotland.
