Welcome to my web site.
Sometimes the smallest actions can lead to deadly consequences, from which recovery may be impossible. In Vanished in the Dunes, a seemingly innocent encounter traps a susceptible man into a mounting web of deceit and lies that spin out of control and lead to a series of tragic confrontations.
I hope you enjoy the story.
Praise for Vanished in the Dunes – which rose to number one in Amazon’s Kindle suspense category.
“Nail-biting tension as an innocent man digs himself an ever deeper hole in the murder of a sexy Hamptons visitor. I may never park at Montauk’s scenic overlook again!”
-Helen Simonson, author of New York Times best seller Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand
“VANISHED IN THE DUNES is a gripping combination of crime fiction and character study. It’s first rate reading…and not just for the beach.”
–Susan Isaacs, New York Times bestselling author
“VANISHED IN THE DUNES is an exquisitely crafted mystery that keeps the reader guessing until the very last page. Allan Retzky’s characters inhabit the upper echelons of Hamptons society, but below the smooth, calm surface of their privileged lives, nothing is what it seems. On a chilly morning in May, Amos Posner’s day begins with a quiet ride home to Amagansett on the Hampton Jitney but ends in unexpected catastrophe. His actions set in motion a chain of events that will forever alter his life and his perceptions of human nature and its deep-rooted folly. A masterful, exciting debut!”
-Kaylie Jones, author of A Soldier’s Daughter Never Cries and Lies My Mother Never Told Me
“Retzky and Dostoyevsky – what? Both have used the power and fascination of murder, but murder turned inside-out. Retzky’s is a study of guilt, of small panicked mistakes that lead to more innocent death. And the fact that it all happens in the off-season Hamptons? Delicious.”
-Clark Blaise, author of The Meagre Tarmac and Southern Stories
