A piece of prime property is a source of conflict between two competing real estate agencies, resulting in a suspicious disappearance in the suspense novel, Far Reaching Aspects, by John Kemp. Daniel is a moderately successful real estate agent, being the number one salesman in his office two years running. When his bosses Linda and Adam's marriage disintegrates, their listings are cleaved into two opposing agencies. Daniel works in Adam's office with Fiona and Josh, while Jessica and Miranda work in Linda's establishment.

Oddly enough, despite the rivalry between the owners, clients, personal information and rumors are covertly being shared between the two businesses. When a large isolated beachfront property is put up for sale, it becomes a multiple listing the two companies are contending to close. Daniel is the realtor assigned to the manor while Jessica is representing Linda's office. Things become confusing and complicated as Daniel and Jessica continually bump into each other at the property. Something is going on at the house, but Daniel can't put his finger on the problem.

Far Reaching Aspects by John Kemp is a disturbing tale that holds the reader's attention as they unravel the events at an old vacated property. Told from the main character, Daniel's, point of view, it is an enigmatic narrative with the characters floating phantom-like from past to present with little regard to the relevance of time. Daniel's conceptual view of the other characters and their role is ambiguous, giving the reader a puzzle to figure out. This is a great story for those who love abstract mystery novels.
